Juicing and the Benefits. • Kas

Juicing - taking the freshest fruits and vegetables and positively squeezing the life out of them to bring vitality and energy into our daily lives.


We have over 100 mouth-watering juice recipes designed specifically to give you a whole range of health and lifestyle benefits. These include boosting mental and physical energy, alleviating stress, warding off disease and delaying the ageing process.


"But why bother?" you ask. "There´s all that peeling and chopping and yet another machine (the juicer) to clean."

There are several reasons. The first is that juicing is the fool-proof way of adding wonderful life-enhancing and life-protecting vitamins, minerals and natural food chemicals to your diet. Sure, you could take pills, but they contain only the nutrients we know about in artificial form. On the other hand, the nutrients in fresh juice are3 more easily absorbed by the body. What´s more, it contains trace elements, vitamins and minerals that scientists are only just beginning to discover. 

Buy a juicer and try these recipes daily for a month; at the end of it you´ll look better, feel better and you´ll be better.

"Can´t I just buy ready-made juices at the supermarket?" Not if you want to reap the real benefits of juicing. There´s no comparison between fresh and commercial juices; even "freshly squeezed" ones have been in the bottle for several days, losing vitamins.

Processed varietes are reconstituted concentrates that are vitamin-deficent. Fruit "drinks" are often 90% water, ten% juice, sugar, sweeteners and a host of chemicals, is that really what you want inside your body?

Your own freshly prepared juices are guaranteed to be free of additives, many of which cause asthma, eczema and other allergic reactions. Your juices will boost your body´s energy, viality and natural immunity.

Use them as pick-me-ups when your low, mixed modestly with alcohol at parties, or made into shakes, smoothies and crushes. You can even use them to cleanse and detox your system, giving your body a spring clean.
