Most people that have common health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes and asthma are using the natural juices from herbs, fruits and vegetables to improve their particular health condition. Natural juices can help everyone; however, a person with a specific health problem will not receive the same health benefits from every juice he/she drinks. If you do not like the commonly available recipes for juicing, you can do a little research and formulate a juice that tastes delicious and will directly benefit your health problem.
First, you need to do a little research about your health problem. You will want to discover the common causes for it, as well as nutrients, vitamins and minerals that may help you improve your health condition. Some illnesses are connected with vitamin and/or mineral deficient diets.
Juicing has the added benefit of boosting your metabolism, therefore helping you lose weight. Many people have begun juicing for weight loss purposes only, so they are using other (and creating their own) delicious juicing weight loss recipes.
Many scientific studies revealed that ingesting folic acid might offer relief of breathing problems for people with asthma. The tests conducted on patients proved that people, who consume higher amounts of folic acid than others, have fewer allergies and asthma problems. Second, after you discover which vitamins, minerals affect your health problem; you need to discover which fruit and vegetables have the needed vitamins and minerals.
The use of the correct components in recipes for juicing is a way of success. It is commonly known that some fruits and vegetables contain larger amounts of specific vitamins and/or minerals than others do. For example, the banana has a high level of potassium and the orange has higher levels of vitamin C than other fruits. Researching about the vitamin and/or mineral composition of different fruits and vegetables is the best way to choose the right produce for your health problem. Use only high-quality natural products. The health of your body depends on the quality of the fruits and vegetables you use in your recipes for juicing. If possible, purchase organic or locally produced vegetables and fruits.
If you have a backyard, you can start a garden with your own fruits and vegetables. In this way, you know what are producing, you know the produced fruit/vegetable is pesticide free and you are certain that you are using ripe and fresh produce. However not everyone can grow plants with the same success. If you have to buy produce from a grocery store, wash them thoroughly to remove the pesticides from the skin. As you gather experience in making juices, you can easily create fruit or juice vegetable recipes that both taste good and provides health benefits. You will have to start with at least one pound of fruit and vegetables to get one glass of juice.
The creation of your own juicing recipes is a fun and simple process. The peel of the fruit and vegetables is the place where most of the vitamins and minerals reside, therefore use the whole fruit in juicing. Just remove the parts of the fruits that can damage the juicer, such as citrus fruit rinds. Cut the fruits and vegetables into small pieces and start juicing. It cannot be more simple than this.
After you know more about the vitamins/minerals in fruit and vegetables and you have detailed knowledge about your specific health condition, you have limitless possibilities to try out with many kinds of recipes for juicing. Spend some time experimenting a bit, so you can create the juice that has a delicious taste.
