Juicer vs blender
You will get a more concentrated juice when you use a juicer as suppose to using a blender and having to add extra water to free up the blades. Either way the juice will turn out fine and your body will appreciate it. The clean up time will definitely cut short using the blender 😀.
🍃 You can also use this recipe to make a smoothie, just blend a bit more refine.
All of these ingredients are powerful Antioxidants
Antioxidants help the body remove unwanted toxins that result from natural processes or from the environment.
These toxins are called free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules. If too many build up in the body, they can lead to cell damage and promotes and environment for diseases and illnesses.
Juice vs smoothie
When you consume vegetables/ fruits juices they bypass most of the digestive process and the cells get to use and absorb the nutrients instantly. Smoothies on the other hand have the fiber which promotes a healthy peristalsis. Although in a refine state the body will still exert some amount of energy to digest it and the cells will use and absorb the nutrients less quicker when compared to juice. Either way they both are great ways to get those vital nutrients. Juicing/ fasting is a great way to also give your digestive system a break. The digestive system uses a lot of energy to digest foods. Giving the digestive system a break even if it’s from one meal of the day, the body can use that same energy to heal and get rid of toxins.
