Did you know that drinking green juice can have amazing benefits to your Joy Factor?
One of the many benefits of green juice is when you raise the alkalinity of your body slowly by drinking one daily (see recipes below), you start to access not only physical well-being, but also feelings of happiness, joy, and a higher satisfaction with life.
Why is that? When our bodies are nutrient-rich, and our bodies begin to clear toxins making the basal membranes more permeable through a diet high in raw vegetables and greens, we access true health. True health will give you a feeling of euphoria because that is your natural state–your birthright!
How do you begin to access true health? Drink a green juice every day that has celery, cucumber, some kind of leafy greens such as parsley, kale, dill, fennel, basil, cilantro, sprouts or beet greens plus a little bit of lemon juice. Be sure to rotate the greens in order to get a full profile of minerals such as calcium potassium, magnesium, and iron.
In less than 1 week you should start to feel the benefits of green juice. If nothing else, your body will use the extra hydration to cleanse your cells and plump up your skin.
Why is no apple or fruit included? Once the fiber is removed from the fruit, it becomes high glycemic which can raise blood sugar, feed cancer cells and contribute to diabetic symptoms. For me personally, fruit juice makes me feel bloated and tired as I get a “sugar crash”
