WHY SHOULD I DETOX WITH FRESH JUICES?
There is a reason why more people
than ever are starting to realize the
benefits of a “Juice Fast” or Juice
Detox.
We all understand the big idea of
eating more fresh fruits and
vegetables but life is busy and often
it is just plain difficult.
Imagine getting all of the benefits of
20 carrots, 8 apples, 1/2 pound of
grapes, lemons, kale, raw honey and
more all in a day via juicing them.
We see more and more the reasons
to eat the freshest diet possible and
more and more studies are revealing
the power of antioxidants and their
immune system boosting properties.
Whether you are interested in weight
loss, an immune system boost, a
yearly detox, or you are ready for a
WHAT ARE THE TOP BENEFITS
OF JUICING?
5 main reasons why
juicing is so beneficial :
LEMONS
High in Vitamin C and also one of the few fruit
known to be an antioxidant, antiviral,
antifungal, antibacterial.
GRANNY SMITH APPLES
Known for the flavonoids with high anti-oxidant
properties
1.
The juice
requires hardly
any digestion, so
all its nutritional
benefits get
rapidly absorbed
into your system.
2.
When you juice,
you use more
fruits and
vegetables than
you could
actually eat. As a
result, you are
drinking a
densely packed
amount of
vitamins, minerals
and other plantbased nutrients.
3.
Liver
detoxification
4.
immune system
boost
5.
cleansing of the
intestinal tract
CARROTS
Contains 490 phytochemicals, high in betacarotene as well as Vitamin A.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF JUICING?
Improving the cardiovascular system and heart health:
◦
◦
◦
◦
Both antioxidant vitamins C and E prevent the damaging effect of free radicals on artery walls.
They prevent blood from sticking, clotting, becoming toxic as well as helping to lower triglycerides
levels (Here is more info about how to lower triglycerides). Good to great levels of vitamin C can be
found in most vegetables and fruits. For the health benefits of juicing vitamin E you can use
blackberries, kiwi, asparagus and spinach in your juicer recipes.
Potassium and magnesium are essential for proper heart function and a regular heart beat.
Blackberries are a good source for both these minerals.
Additionally, as we know, being overweight plays a fundamental role in developing heart disease,
so its good to take some common sense and a realistic approach on how to lose weight and
maintain a healthy weight.
Detoxifying the liver – this is fundamental for good health:
■
◦
◦

Alkalizing your system (vegetable juicer recipes only):

The liver has 100′s of important functions. One of its main functions is to clean the blood
and remove toxins and metabolic waste. With the amount of toxins we are dealing with
everyday in modern life we need to be real diligent in helping to keep it “clean” so it can
keep us clean!
Certain nutrients are needed to provide the juicing benefits of liver cleansing. Antioxidants
beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, and N-acetyl cysteine are potent liver cleansers. In
addition, B-vitamins riboflavin and niacin also aid liver cleansing. Cabbage, brussel sprouts
and cauliflower have been found to be great for the liver.
You can also add milk thistle supplements to your diet to help the liver detoxify.
All vegetables are alkalizing. Fruits on the other hand are not; they are mostly acidic in
nature.
The benefits of making your body PH level less acidic is a subject of its own, so here are just
a few juicing benefits;
■
■
■
■
■
■
Improved brain function
Improved heart function
Slowing down the aging process
Improved joint function – helping with arthritis
Less disease-prone body environment. Acidic environments breed diseases.
Better digestion
Helping with healthy skin, hair, nails and eyes:
■
■
■
The antioxidants vitamins C and E help to prevent skin damage from sun exposure, due to
their free radical neutralizing abilities. The health benefits of juicing blackberries and
blueberries together will provide you with a good source of vitamins C and E.
A deficiency in riboflavin (vitamin B2) can cause cracked lips, hair loss, dermatitis, greasy
looking skin and other skin problems. Putting kale, spinach, and asparagus in your juicer
recipes will provide you with vitamin B2.
The most potent nutrient for healthy eyes is vitamin A, which is not found in plants. Its
precursor, beta-carotene, is found in abundance in orange colored fruits and vegetables.
Beta-carotene is turned into vitamin A by the body. This vitamin is essential for the retina
to function properly and prevent night blindness. Both vitamins A and C reduce the risk of
age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts. Carrot juice is a very good source
for both of these vitamins.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF JUICING?

Increased energy levels:

Rebuild blood cells:

This one is pretty simple. Lots of juicing means lots more vitamins and minerals which are
responsible for all sorts of necessary chemical reactions promoting health and vitality and
therefore lots more energy. Enjoy juicer recipes every day!!
Yes that’s right!
This is made possible by the incredibly healthy chlorophyll, which would need an article of
its own to give justice to its health benefits!
On a molecular level chlorophyll looks almost exactly like a component of the red blood cell
hemin. More amazingly scientists have found that when you assimilate chlorophyll into the
body, it makes the chemical shift and actually becomes hemin. Essentially, taking
chlorophyll is almost like getting a blood transfusion!
Chlorophyll is also a pigment that gives plants their green color. So put the green stuff in
your juicer recipes! The darker the green, the more chlorophyll it contains.
Improved immune system:
■
Drinking juicer recipes regularly is going to give you a wide variety and more than adequate
amount of antioxidants which are essential for a healthy immune system. The antioxidants
from fruits and vegetables include vitamins A, C, E, plus a wide range of plant chemicals
called phytochemicals. Phytochemicals have amazing and varied health benefits, most
notably anti-cancer properties. Info from http://juicerrecipesnow.com/health-benefits-of-juicing/

A FILM ABOUT THE REVOLUTIONARY BENEFITS OF JUICING
100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the
end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a
path laid out before him that wouldn't end well— with one foot already
in the grave, the other wasn't far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD
is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his
health.
With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term,
Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He
trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in
tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60
days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills
and achieve a balanced lifestyle.
TestimonialAfter hundreds of thousands in medical bills, seeing over 50 physicians, heading to Mayo Clinic, NIH, Emory and
more, Scott could not find out what was causing his blood pressure to be so high. He ended up being told that
there were some small tumors in his liver that were inoperable. When doctors told him they could not help, he
decided to find another way.
He decided to try to maximize his nutritional intake by juicing for an extended period of time. Over 6 months, he did
six 21-day juice fasts and the tumors disappeared. In conjunction with his juicing program, he began to walk in the
fresh air for at least 1-hour each day, go to bed before 10pm, drink more water, learn to stress less and find ways to
serve others. These and other elements are what make up -THE NEW LIFE- the 10 core components of The Daniel
Challenge.

*WHEN WE COOK THE VEGETABLES IN WATER, THE MINERALS/NUTRIENTS BOIL
OUT INTO THE WATER - THIS IS WHY THE WATER TAKES ON THE COLOR OF THE
VEGETABLE. BY DRINKING ONLY THE BROTH AND NOT EATING THE VEGETABLES,
WE GET THE MAXIMUM BENEFIT.
***Why the combinations? There are some interesting studies that show that the body
produces different enzymes for fruit than it does for vegetables. For this reason, we
have separated the fruits from the vegetables for maximum benefit and digestion.
This program is designed to enhance the immune system. Before going on any detox program, please consult
with your physician. Persons with Diabetes or other health risks should be especially careful when drinking juices
due to the high sugar content and low fiber content. A rise in blood sugar will occur.
