Namaste Goddesses.

Feeling lethargic, stressed, or drained?

Try a Juice or smoothie detox for a few days and feel like a new YOU!

Let’s discuss the Benefits of Juicing:

  1. packed with essential vitamins and minerals
  2. antioxidants plus living enzymes
  3. gives our digestive system a break from digesting whole foods
  4. increased energy and aids with weight loss
  5. increases immune system

Negatives of Juicing:

  1. can result in high sugar content due to the removal of fiber and the excess amount of fruit compacted into a single serving.
  2. removes the fiber from fruits and vegetables which is an essential part of our diet.
  3. enters the bloodstream very quickly which can cause blood sugar spike (stick to more veg than fruit)

Benefits of Blending:

  1. Includes whole fruit or veg, doesn’t discard any valuable vitamins, minerals, or fiber content.
  2. slow, even release of nutrients into the bloodstream
  3. less sugar due to the bulk of the fruit and veg being used. This results in less food per serving but still packed with minerals and vitamins.
  4. essential vitamins, living enzymes, antibiotics, minerals, and antioxidants.

Negatives of Blending:

  1. The inclusion of fiber does make the digestive process a little harder
  2. the heat of the blender can cause some nutrients to be lost due to increased oxidization (blend quickly and on a low setting to reduce this.)
