Juicing Tips Google+0Facebook0Twitter0Pinterest11LinkedIn0The best antidote for the signs of aging is food – specifically, food chock full of antioxidants and omega-3s to fight aging from the inside out! So, which foods should you be juicing for maximum anti aging benefits? There are tons of foods that have anti aging benefits and ideally, you should be consuming a healthy mix of all of them, but many of these foods are better eaten than juiced. And not just for the obvious reasons (i.e. salmon juice, anyone?), but also because some anti aging foods are best eaten whole or cooked. Blueberries, for example, are a potent anti aging food. They’re crammed with anti oxidants, but they also contain quite a bit of sugar. Antioxidants are very helpful but sugar is not, so in order to keep your sugar intake low, we recommend you eat sweet fruits rather than juice them since the fiber content will keep you from eating too much. Another example is tomatoes. Tomatoes are great juiced, but studies show that their health benefits are enhanced when eaten slightly cooked. So which foods are truly great juiced? Here’s a handy little list below. Mix and match to your heart’s palate’s content. Kale Kale is oh, soooo good for you. In so many ways. These leafy wonders are an antioxidant powerhouse, which help your body to fight the harmful effects of oxidation. Kale is also a great source of iron, calcium, and vitamins A, C, and K. These leaves also have a surprising amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which are repeatedly stressed to be an important component of any anti aging diet. Find out more benefits of drinking kale juice! Garlic If you haven’t yet tried garlic in your juices – this is a must. Garlic is famous for its anti-inflammatory properties and is incredibly helpful in protecting and maintaining cell health, lowering cholesterol levels and blood pressure, as well as giving the immune system a helpful boost. Find out more benefits of juicing garlic! Avocado Avocados are an anti aging superfood. These creamy green helpers are full of vitamin E, potassium, antioxidants, and monounsaturated fat. All of these nutrients are vital for anti aging efforts. Omega-3s are good fats which help to maintain cellular integrity. Oleic acid (another monounsaturated fat) has been shown to lower bad cholesterol and protect against blood clots. Oh, and did we mention that avocados are also rich in folic acid? Folic acid has been linked to preventing heart attacks and reducing the risk of osteoporosis. It’s also wonderful for the skin and nails. Lemons Zesty and full of vitamin C, lemons are a welcome addition to pretty much every juice recipe. Packed with flavor and freshness, these fruits also come with massive health benefits. Although acidic to begin with, lemon juice is alkaline-forming on body fluids and helps balance the body’s pH. Find out why alkalinity is important! Fresh lemon juice is also great for helping your liver help you. The liver acts as the body’s great detoxifier and lemon juice detoxes the liver. Fresh lemon juice is also a great cleanser for your bowels and can help you flush out waste on a regular basis. Carrots You probably already know that carrots are good for the eyes. That’s because they’re high in beta carotene, a plant pigment that gives carrots its distinctive color. When consumed, beta carotene is converted into vitamin A, which then helps your body make new cells to replace the old ones – especially the cells of your skin, eyes and bones.
