Fresh pressed juices are filled with sunlight and enzymes. All the fruit and vegetable’s nutritional power is delivered to you in an easily digestible form and juicing removes the fiber so that that nutrition can get absorbed by your body almost immediately. All of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients are already released from the plants fibrous cell walls and readily available to be absorbed. Juicing is one of the best ways to get an abundance of nutrients into your body quickly. Whole fruits and vegetables are great, but to get the same nutrition from eating them whole you would need to consume a huge quantity of them. And as a bonus, with every glass of juice you are nutritiously hydrating your body.

10 Benefits of Juicing

1. Increased energy! The abundance of live enzymes in combination with an intake of valuable nutrients and loads of oxygen rich chlorophyll is an unbeatable combination to make you feel energized.

2. Better Digestion. Fresh pressed juices contain tons of living enzymes and it is these enzymes that are the catalysts behind every function of your body! Juicing takes much less energy to digest than to digest vegetables in their whole form.  In fact, juicing can be the quickest way to healing your digestive tract and can eliminating digestive concerns.  The lining of the digestive tract gets replaced every 2-3 days, an influx of nutrients will help to heal this lining and provide good prebiotics to encourage good bacteria to replenish and grow.

3. Great for detoxing and for healthy clean blood.  Juicing cleanses and heals the whole body, most unfavorable health conditions start with impurities in the blood. Get your blood cleaned up and you will start to get your whole body cleaned up. Juicing is one of the most effective ways to detox your body!

4. Build a strong immune system to ward off viruses, harmful bacteria and parasites. It will also make you a powerful force also against chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease. People with allergies usually notice a decrease in their allergies too.

5. Weight loss. Juicing provides abundant nutrients to help you feel satisfied for longer periods of time. It not only keeps you healthy while you’re losing weight but helps to make the lost weight more permanent.
6. Juicing gives you beautiful skin! ..and stronger hair and nails too. Juicing can counter premature aging. The nutrients will show on the outside as well as the inside. As those nutrients start taking effect, they will make you glow.

7. Think clearer! Juicing enhances brain health. You will be able to focus and concentrate better, be clearer and your memory will be sharper. In addition, people susceptible to them, find they have less headaches.

8. Move with ease. You’re joints will work better. Many of the fruits and veggies commonly juiced have  anti-inflammatory properties. You will notice that you can generally move easier, bend and twist with ease and be more flexible.

9. Sleep! You will sleep deeper and get to sleep more easily.

10. Get grounded! Juicing infuses your body with pure plant energy that will give you a connected feeling. This is a vital part of our lives that often gets overlooked and one that makes us feel calm and relaxed on a very deep level. When we get disconnected from nature we lose sight of our purpose and feel confused. Getting grounded and back in touch with nature gives us a deep unconscious understanding of our purpose and role here on earth. It makes us feel supported and good about life around us.

Which juicer is best?

I have done a lot of researching and tested a lot of juicers and my favorite is the Omega. This is a single gear juicer, which juices leafy greens really well, which is one thing that the more common and generally less expensive centrifugal juicer do not do so well. I have the Omega 8003 model, but I am providing links for the newer model.
It looks great and reviews on it look equally great. I would bet on this juicer being the best.
Omega 8006 Juicer (chrome)
Omega 8004 Juicer (white)

There are some advantages to centrifugal juicers. Although they do not juice leafy greens as well and some produce they are generally less expensive, they are fast  and you can put in bigger pieces of produce in to juice – for instance, an apple will need to be quartered for the above single gear Omega juicer, but can be put whole into most centrifugal juicers.

Omega has a good centrifugal juicer here
