How to drink you juice. Yes! There's more to it than just downing the delicious nectar in the pretty bottle. In order to get the full benefits from your juices (and smoothies) we have some simple and effective suggestions.
1. CHEW YOUR JUICE & SMOOTHIES.Did you know your saliva contains an enzyme called Ptyalin. This unique enzyme helps breakdown food for the digestive process. When you drink a juice quickly without letting it be exposed this enzyme, your body has a harder time processing the nutrients. Slow down, chew, savor.
2. ADD A FAT.Fat (coconut oil, coconut butter, raw cream, ghee, grass fed butter) acts as a carrier of the nutrients and allows the body to easily absorb all the goodness. Adding a healthy fat will majorly help your body synthesize the vitamins and minerals in our juice. Blend it in a Vitamix for a smooth taste!
3. DRINK (AND CHEW) YOUR JUICE ON AN EMPTY STOMACHThis way your body will absorb the nutrients rapidly. If you're new to juice, drink some water with it, this will allow the body to adjust to the flooding of beneficial nutrients.
