Juicing is a well-known technique of delivering nutrients to the body in a form that helps maximize absorption. This is especially useful in the case of cancer and other chronic diseases, where a compromised gut is a frequent accompanying condition. Some of the key benefits of juicing include:
1. Provides fruits and vegetables in raw form, which maximizes available nutrition compared to cooking.
2. Easy way to consume large portions of fruits and vegetables that may be difficult to consume otherwise.
3. Nutrients in juices can absorb rapidly even through the most impaired digestive systems.
4. The juicing process releases active enzymes that aid in digestion and absorption.
Juicing can be combined with fasting which can give the digestive system a much needed chance to rest without nutrient loss. During this period, nutrients are provided to the body through different juices, water, and herbal teas.
