Why Juice? Here's Why.
The digestive system is a very efficient juice machine. From teeth to intestine, your digestive track churns the nutrients in foods to a liquid form, absorbed through the lining of the intestinal walls, to become liquefied nutrients in the bloodstream. These nutrients are then transported to every cell of your body.
So why not just eat your fruit and veggies instead of juicing them? Now, more than any time in history, your body is forced to absorb thousands of man-made toxins. They are in the water, food, and air, and therefore every cell of your body. Many consider this to be the primary reason for the epidemic rise of diseases, including cancer. Your body has an internal cleaning system to clean out toxins, but what happens when there are more toxins going in than being removed?
Throughout history, people ate and drank organic produce. It was not a choice; it was simply how the world
was. Today we breathe, eat, and drink so many toxins, preservatives, and additives that by FDA standards, your body could not be approved for human consumption! When your body has more toxins coming in than going out the result is a toxic overload. The fallout is DNA damage and cells that are unable to function properly, causing premature aging, chronic low energy, a foggy mind, depression and chronic illness. Our internal cleaning system can use a little help.

Balance, balance, balance…A healthy body must have a healthy gut. Alkalizing effects of juicing help our cells have the ability to repair themselves and our bodies to naturally detoxify. Balanced body chemistry is of utmost importance for the maintenance of health and correction of disease. Acidosis, or over-acidity in the body tissues, is one of the basic causes of many diseases. All foods are "burned" in the body, more commonly called digested. Think of this as leaving an “ash” as the result of the "burning". This food “ash” can be neutral, acid or alkaline, depending largely on the mineral composition of the foods. Some foods leave an acid residue or ash, some alkaline. It is, therefore, vitally important that there is a proper ratio between acid and alkaline foods in the diet. The natural ratio in a normal healthy body is approximately 4 to 1 – four parts alkaline to one part acid, or 80% to 20%. When such an ideal ratio is maintained, the body has a strong resistance to disease.
For optimum health and maximum resistance to disease, it is imperative that your diet is slightly more alkaline. The ideal ratio, according to the world's foremost authority, Dr. Ragnar Borg, on the relationship between the acid-alkaline ratio in the diet in health and disease, is about 80% alkali-producing foods and 20% acid-producing foods.
If you are like most people we talk to, you do not eat enough raw, fresh produce to benefit from these amazing protective compounds. This is where a Greenmouth juice fits perfectly into a busy lifestyle. One 16 oz fresh juice provides nearly your entire days worth of recommended vegetables and can help maintain the alkaline pH balance for optimal health to prevent disease and weight gain.
