Multiple Benefits of Apple Juicing
'An apple a day keeps the doctor away,' goes an old saying. And this couldn't be truer. Besides being sweet and delicious to eat, apples are packed with vitamins and nutrients that help you remain strong and healthy. If you love apples, the good news is that they are available in grocery stores throughout the year. They come from many different places and in many different varieties, including Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith and MacIntosh. Eating the fruit is good, but juicing it is better in terms of the increased benefits it provides. Let's take a brief look at some of the benefits.
Juicing concentrates the nutrients
Juicing concentrates, or brings together, the fruit's vitamins and nutrients in one place, while removing the fiber that is in the fruit. Without fiber, the fruit basically becomes 'predigested', and can be absorbed easily by the digestive system, claims Juicing-for-Health.com. Also, you can get the nutrients available in two or more varieties of apples in one large glass by mixing different types of apples.
Apple Juice can be used a sweetener
Fresh apple juice can also be used as a sweetener, especially for vegetable juices that do not taste so good on their own. For example, many people find vegetable juices like carrot-spinach juice quite awful. Adding apple juice the vegetable juice makes it more palatable, or at least more tolerable. This also adds the apple juice's vitamins and nutrients to the vegetable juice.
Apple juice can be used as a substitute for sweets
As well as being packed with nutrients, apple juice is naturally sweet. If you have a sweet tooth, apple juice can easily satisfy your craving for sweets. It can also help reduce your dependence on other sweets, such as candies, cakes and sodas that may be harmful to your body.
Apple juice detoxifies your system
In addition to having an abundance of vitamins and nutrients, apple juice is also rich in enzymes called flavanoids and polyphenols. These two powerful antioxidants can detoxify your system of harmful substances, such as toxins and free floating radicals, and keep you healthy, according to the Health Guidance website.
Juicing helps digestion and energy production
According the Health Guidance website, apples contain a substance called mallic acid which plays an important role in energy production. This acid is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and transported to the liver. Juicing helps concentrate mallic acid and deliver to the body quickly.
Juicing helps prevent heart disease
Fresh apple juice contains phytonutrients which help slow down the oxidization of low density lipoproteins (LDL), also known as bad cholesterol, claims Soy Quick on its website. When LDL oxidizes, plaque forms on the walls of arteries. This causes the arteries to become narrow and restricts the flow the blood. Sooner or later, a piece of the plaque breaks loose and travels to the brain or heart. This results in heart attack or stroke, which leads to paralysis and death. By helping slow down the oxidization of LDL, apple juice helps prevent heart diseases.
