Benefits of Fresh Fruit Juice
Fresh Fruit Juice is a really good source of minerals and vitamins which help in activation of enzymes and co-enzymes and without minerals and vitamins, our body enzymes are not able to perform their job well and without these enzymes and co-enzymes, we cannot live. It is interesting to note that these enzymes and co-enzymes work as catalysts in performing millions of chemical reactions which take place on a regular basis inside our body. These enzymes help our body in digestion of food and absorption of important vitamins and minerals and transformation of food into our body tissue and provide nutrition. As you may know, human body is based on cells and these enzymes provide energy to the cells and are really important for almost all the activities that we do each and every time through our body. Fresh fruit juices are a really good source of these enzymes. It is important to note that the juice should be fresh if you want to get benefits from it that is why it is highly advised to keep the fruit juice in refrigerator as soon as you have processed the juice. There are millions of enzymes found in fresh fruit juice but these enzymes are destroyed by heat, and if they are destroyed and your juice is not fresh, then there is no use of drinking fruit juice. Fruit juice must be consumed with a few hours or at max within the same day. Do not ever drink stale or unfresh fruit juice as it is detrimental to our health and can cause infection and indigestion. Actually, our body will try to throw it back. Moreover, when you will try to drink a day old fruit juice, you will on your own realize that it is not fresh because of its bitter taste and bad smell whereas fresh fruit juice always tastes and smells best whether it is sweet or sour. You can also try fresh vegetable juice to get benefits from them.
When vegetables and fruits are juiced, enzymes stay in their raw state in the juice when you consume the juice, so you want to acquire benefits of fruit juice, then the best way is to include healthy and fresh fruit juice in your diet on a daily basis. Another benefit of drinking fresh fruit juice is that our body is not able to absorb more minerals and vitamins if we eat whole fruit because there are many nutrients that are trapped within the fiber content of the fruit and when the juice is processed of that fruit, it breaks the fibers and releases the important nutrients, therefore, consuming fresh fruit juice is much more beneficial that eating a raw fruit if you want your body to absorb more useful vitamins and minerals. If your goal is to consume more fiber, than a whole fruit is better as it contains more fiber in its skin.
