Juicing Benefits And Optimum Vision Nutrition
What You’ll Need:
Juicing benefits and the health benefits of extracting fresh juice from raw fruits and vegetables is a very significant way of giving your eyes and body proper nutrition.
It’s unlikely that you’ll have 20/20 vision, while your body is failing the overall health test.
Juicing and pulp/skin blending has been tried and tested over many years for optimum nutrient consumption/absorption, it is arguably the best way to get the entire content of fruit and vegetables into our bodies.
These nutrients are carried by the blood and utilized in various parts of the body (including the eyes) in minutes, thereby giving your eyes quite a nourishing dose of what it needs for vision health.
Lutein And Zeaxanthin Rich Vegetables Short List
Here is a short list of lutein/ zeaxanthin rich vegetables (which may be more practical to get at your local grocery store.)
- • Kale
- • Spinach
- • Broccoli
- • Romaine lettuce
- • Celery
Note: – The juicing benefits of apples (especially the green ones). Kiwi and a small amount of ginger (about the size of two fingers) are used mostly to make the juice more palpable.
Let’s now talk about ideal ways to accomplish this. A good juice extractor is needed. The Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain, is most noteworthy and one of the most popular ones presently on the market. This will get the job done and is affordable. However, if you want to invest a little more in what is arguably the best all around juicer on the market, you can go for the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer or check out other options here.
Getting Total Nutritional Value
In order to get all of the health benefits of juicing, we recommend blending the pulp so that you get the entire nutritional benefit from the vegetable or fruit. The Kitchen-Aid KSB560MC 5-Speed Blender with Polycarbonate Jar, is one of the most popular and affordable blenders, with great ratings and reviews.

What To Do With The Excess Pulp
Sometimes we extract juice and realize that there is so much pulp and bits of vegetables and fruits remaining. Consequently, it becomes impractical to consume it all at once. Therefore, it might be a good idea to put them in a plastic bag and put them in the freezer until later or another day. If you do this, just recognize that your pulp will lose much of its nutritional value.
Juicing benefits the body and restores health and you can also preserve the pulp’s nutrition. use the Food-Saver V2840 Advanced Design Vacuum Food Sealer before freezing. See this video.
So there you have it! Juice your vegetables and utilize and consume the pulp also, because in the pulp lies what is akin to the skin of a potato, or the Rhine of a melon which at times is equal to a deeper or richer nutritional source.
Caution: More than a glassful of pulp smoothie drink a day may overwhelm proper digestion. One glassful a day should be sufficient at breakfast or lunchtime for optimum juicing benefits.
