Benefits of Green Juice:
Leading medical authorities, nutritionists, dietitians, and other known experts in the medical field recommend that we consume three to five servings of green leafy vegetables a day. No vitamin or medicine is a legitimate substitute. The healing elements that are found in green leafy vegetables are so powerful and synergistic, no combination of synthetic medicines or supplements could ever match their power.

Five main benefits of green foods are:

Chlorophyl power
• Chlorophyll is quite possibly the most powerful element that exists in the universe. Chlorophyll is one of the most intensely researched elements and has been used in the treatment of everything from periodontal disease, diabetes and low iron, to open wounds, ulcers and body odor.

• Its chemical makeup strongly resembles hemoglobin (the portion of the blood that carries oxygen). The center element of chlorophyll is magnesium.
• Some research is now suggesting that chlorophyll can efficiently release magnesium, and replace it with iron. In other words, chlorophyll can actually be converted to hemoglobin, which increases the flow of oxygen to all parts of the body.
• Oxygen reduces stress on the body, creates greater energy and endurance, and creates an aerobic environment. In an aerobic environment, disease cannot get started.
• An aerobic environment also is beneficial to the so-called friendly bacteria which promotes digestive health and detrimental to bad bacteria which contributes too disease, body odor, and bad breath.

Trace Minerals
• The recommended source of virtually all minerals and trace minerals is green leafy vegetables. It is not an accident that while we have begun consuming fewer and fewer green foods, the lack of trace minerals quite possibly has become the number one cause of disease within Western culture today.
•Chlorophyll is the only food that creates an environment that is ideally suited to deliver and to maintain those proper mineral qualities.
• Chlorophyll contains magnesium which is immediately delivered to the muscle tissue. This mineral is absolutely essential for both cardiac and respiratory wellness. Night leg cramps bother you? Take more magnesium.
• While many women need to increase the iron in their diets, but conventional supplements usually result only in constipation and headaches. This is because the body does not know what to do with the iron it is receiving. When you ingest minerals through plants, you can never suffer from toxicity.
• There are many other benefits to the trace minerals. Potassium is important for digestive health, chromium helps blood sugar control, and selenium aids the metabolism. Calcium reverses osteoporosis, and helps build stronger bones and beautiful hair. While calcium is probably the most popular mineral consumed through supplements, the bioavailability of such products is a fraction of what you can receive by consuming green leafy vegetables.

Vegetable Protein
• Lightweight complete vegetable protein contain all eight essential amino acids, which are building blocks for the immune system, enhance reproductive function, and creates lean connective tissue which leads to dense, heavy permanent muscle on the body.
• Without proper body volume and the quality of peptides, we will begin to break down our own bodies. In other words, the body feeds on itself.
• All of the phytochemicals found in green food are interrelated. You cannot isolate them. You cannot mix liquid chlorophyll, digestive enzymes, antioxidant enzymes, mineral supplements, an alkalizing agent, and lightweight protein supplement and expect to come up with an effective food.

• Green foods contain phytonutrients that are capable of initiating chemical reactions. cleansing, detoxifying while enhancing the immune system.
• Plant sources contain both antioxidant and digestive enzymes identical to those manufactured by the body. This becomes vitally important when we realize that our bodies have a limited ability to manufacture enzymes, and when we run out, death will result.
• To make it simple, cooking and processing food eliminates enzymes, while raw, unprocessed foods contain them in great supply.

Alkalizing Agent
• Acid and alkalinity is measured on a pH scale of 0 to 14 with 7 being neutral. Scores above 7 are alkaline, and scores below 7 are acidic.
• Certain ecology of the body must be alkaline in order for humans to be healthy. The most notable example is the human blood which must a pH of 7.4. It will begin to steal potential the mouth, small intestine and the urinary tract.
• The first ecology that it will rob is the mouth. There are a number of common problems: including cavities, plaque, bleeding gums, periodontal disease, and bad breath. Green foods can reverse this dangerous process.
• The small intestine needs to be alkaline in order to regulate the passage of glucose through the intestine. The benefits of regulated blood sugar are many, including potential weight loss, increased energy, and higher metabolism. Both hypoglcemics and diabetics find that they benefit significantly by taking green juice, which alkalizes the small intesine, which in turn, regulates the passage of glucose through the intestinal barrier. This results in energy, stamina, and endurance.

  1. You do your readers a service by getting this alkalizing info out there, because much of our health care problem would be eliminated if more people took action on this.

    As far as the water and beverage side of this topic, this article came out today and I think you will find it helpful.
