• Fresh juices: good or bad?


    At the very moment when you are driving two cucumbers, a bunch of greens, half a lemon (or even a whole!), A dozen apples and a large carrot (a good salad recipe, by the way), to get the coveted 330 g of longevity elixir, you deprive your body of fiber, which abounds in all of the above products, and instead of a full breakfast, pour in 330 g of sugar and fructose.

    Fresh juices: good or bad?

    It has been scientifically proven that fluids (and especially juices) overcome the digestive path rather than whole foods. This means that at the moment when you empty the “green detox”, all the sugar contained in it is instantly absorbed by the body and, in the absence of dietary fiber, it freely enters the blood, suckling it with fructose (not to be confused with glucose) - and voila! - cause enormous harm to your health. After all, neither the brain nor the muscles can break down fructose, so there is nothing left for it except to be split in the liver.

    Thus, compulsorily voluntarily, having placed on its fragile shoulders all metabolic responsibility for the breakdown of fructose, the liver suffers first. Having spent almost all of its daily potential on splitting the notorious fructose, the poor creature is not able to cope with the fulfillment of the nature assigned to her task - to process in a timely manner the huge amount of poisons with which we supply it day by day. Uric acid, which your liver could not filter out, leads to an increase in blood pressure and gout, which can turn into arthritis. Excessive fructose, the “sugaring” of protein molecules, leads to many problems, including the familiar cataract.

    Every cell in your body, including the brain, actively consumes glucose for food, so most of the glucose is instantly “burned”, once it gets into the body. While for the same “moment”, fructose turns into free fatty acids and triglycerides (a type of cholesterol) and is stored somewhere on the side, in subcutaneous fat (fructose is the closest possible carbohydrate to fats).

    In kilojoules, it looks like this:

    120 kcal of glucose = 1 kcal of fat

    120 kcal of fructose = 40 kcal of fat

    Glucose inhibits the "insatiable" hormone ghrelin (which is responsible for the feeling of hunger), stimulating the production of stucco hormone, which suppresses this appetite. While all the strength and power of fructose is directed only at suppressing the feeling of satiety, with the sole purpose that you once again fall over anything. And what does overeating lead to, I think, everybody knows perfectly well, and it seems that you did not expect such an effect from juice.

    Fresh juices: good or bad?

    From one glass, of course, you will not be covered, but believe me, at some point your body will take it. Abundance of fatty acids in the body leads to insulin resistance, ta - to diabetes, kidney disease, and went-go ... Do you need more convincing arguments?

    In view of all the above, the only time allowed for juices is after exercise with weight. In all other cases, the endless benefits of fruit you get only sugar.

    What, absolutely, absolutely impossible?

    Why not ?! Can! After all, juice has the potential to significantly improve your forms and health. When used correctly, freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juice creates an alkaline environment in the body and serves as a good source of energy, but only, I repeat, AT THE RIGHT USE.

    Add to the juice what is missing:

    Vegetable fats

    One teaspoon of chia delivers 5 grams of omega-3 fatty acids into our body. They will not harm the taste of a drink, but they will only benefit you. Seeds provide the body with a variety of antioxidants, protecting against free radicals, which are formed during exercise, and stimulate brain activity. As an option, any vegetable oil will fit: extra virgine, linseed, coconut, hemp ...


    There are in each zozh-shop or in a drugstore, there are three kopecks. Add 1 teaspoonful of 330 ml of juice.

    Vegetable protein

    Spinach (3 g), green buckwheat soaked overnight (12.6 g), finely ground cannabis seeds (20 g) or amaranth (10 g) - all these and many other sources of vegetable protein only sound strange, but in reality they will be excellent addition to your drink.

    You can also add to the juice:

    • pumpkin seeds (19 g)
    • chia seeds (5 tsp)
    • broccoli (4 g)
    • asparagus (4 g)
    • almond (7 g) / peanut (8 g) / sesame paste (8 g)
