Is green juice really good for you?

Drinking green juice daily is one of the BEST things you can do for your health because green vegetable juices are the optimal food for cleansing, purifying, and healing your body.

Green juice contains chlorophyll (the blood of plants) and is remarkably similar to our own blood (haemoglobin).

Chlorophyll has a lot of enzymes that will cleanse the blood and enhance the blood’s ability to transport more oxygen through other parts of the body.

I prefer taking chlorophyll from food, not supplements, as foods contains more than chlorophyll. Plant-based whole foods are rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals, enzymes, and living waters to enhance your health and well-being.

When you dink a daily glass of freshly extracted, cold pressed green juice your body receives a highly concentrated, powerful, instantly absorbable, living nutrition that can have many benefits for the body.

Look at some of the benefits of green juice:

  • Healthy Glowing Skin
  • Improved Energy
  • Weight Loss
  • Digestive Health
  • High in Amino acids to build proteins
  • High in Vitamin K for calcium
  • and high in Plant-based Iron

Green Juice for Weight Loss

The detox green juice diet has become very popular in recent years as an easier way to consume lots of nutrients without having to eat lots of whole fruits and vegetables.

In the 2010 documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead an Australian man went on a juice only diet for 60 days and he ended up losing over 35kgs!!!

There are 2 ways you can use green juicing recipes for weight loss:

  • A total juice fast, where you consume nothing but juice for a period of time as in the movie
  • or balanced meal replacement with a green juice

By incorporating healthy juicing recipes for weight loss into a healthy diet along with exercise, you can lose weight and not even feel like you’re missing out on anything.

How do you make green juice?

Using your cold press juicer start with a base juice from a vegetable that has a high water content like celery, cucumber or zucchini.

Then add your leafy green vegetables like kale, silver beet, chard or spinach.

Finish the juice with some green apple and add a slice or two of lemon.

In a cold press juicer you can also get a lot of juice and flavour from herbs such as parsley, mint, coriander and basil. You can also juice wheatgrass in a good cold press juicer like the Kuvings Professional range.

What are the Best Green Juice Machines?

Fast spinning juicers (centrifugal) waste a lot of produce. The metal blades are spinning so fast the light weight of the greens get flung out into the pulp bucket leaving you with very little green juice.

Blenders make a smoothie not a juice. Smoothies are a great meal replacement but they do have to be digested to eliminate the cellulose fibre (pulp) in the greens as they are not digestible which takes time and energy. Some nutrient loss also occurs from the oxygen being blended into the smoothie at high speeds. (see our vacuum blender for more info)

The best way to get maximum nutrient extraction in a green juice is using a Cold Press Machine. They extract the most amount of green nutrient whilst keeping all the enzymes and heat sensitive phytonutrients intact.
