When we drink Raw vegetable juices . . . these [micronutrients] are digested and assimilated within 10 to 15 minutes after we drink them and they are used almost entirely in the nourishment and regeneration of the cells and tissues, glands and organs of the body. . . the result is obvious, as the entire process of digestion and assimilation is completed with a maximum degree of speed and efficiency, and with a minimum of effort on the part of the digestive system.” – Dr. Norman Walker
Many health professionals advocate the use of Cold Press Juice to assist in the fight against diseases, including cancer. For example, Gerson Therapy has been advocating juicing since the 1930s.
Fruits and vegetables naturally contain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and plant compounds that protect against disease. Juicing is the quickest and most powerful way to increase your intake of these essential nutrients.
For financial reasons, synthetic patentable medicines attract the vast majority of research investment, not natural medicine. As a result stories of miraculous cures continue to be anecdotal. Nevertheless, numerous studies that have been done on the effects of juicing are supportive of its health-giving actions.
Results from Scientific Studies
A review of 200 studies demonstrated that eating sufficient fruits and vegetables is cancer preventative. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1408943
Other studies show that people who have cancer who eat more fruits and vegetables live significantly longer. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17699009
Cruciferous vegetable (cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower), allium vegetables (onions, garlic, scallions, etc) and dark berries have been shown to be powerful anti-cancer agents. Cruciferous vegetables for example contain nutrients that block the growth of cancer cells. prevent metastasis (cancer proliferation throughout the body) and can even make cancers cells pop or die.
This large study found significant reductions in Alzheimer’s for those who drink fruit and vegetable juices three or more times per week, compared with those who drank juices less than once per week. High levels of polyphenols antioxidants in juices are believed to protect brain cells.
A recent study of vitally important microbiome (gut flora) shows that juice fasting encourages the balance of microflora. 95% of the body’s DNA is derived from this bacteria. It is becoming clear that the balance of your bowel is extremely important. For example, Firmicutes bacteria are suspected to be encouraging obesity and weight gain. Conversely, Bacteroidetes are linked to a leaner body composition. Juice fasting was found to significantly decrease Firmicutes and increase Bacteroidetesbacteria.
The same study also found:
- Increased overall well-being two weeks after the cleanse
- Fruit and vegetable juices exhibit high antioxidant activity due to their diverse phenolic compounds (healthy antioxidants that protect against aging for example).
- A three-day juice fast resulted in up to four pounds weight loss.Two weeks after the cleanse, about 50% of this weight loss was retained.
- Blood plasma NO levels decrease during juice fasts. Meaning increased blood flow and place less stress on your heart.
- Juicing brings a significant decrease in lipid peroxidation, meaning a reduction in cell damage leading to aging.
Adding mixed fruit and vegetable juice to the diet over 14 weeks improves levels of beta-carotene, vitamin C, E, selenium and folate
A review of 22 different studies concluded Juices improve folate and antioxidant levels, including beta-carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E. Juices reduce homocysteine levels and markers of oxidative stress, both of which are linked to improved heart health
Apple and pomegranate juices have been linked to reduced blood pressure and cholesterol levels again pointing to reductions in heart disease.
Studies focussing on children found:
Children who consumed 100% juice had higher intakes of vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium and overall higher diet quality than non-juice drinkers
Juice drinkers had lower intakes added sugar and consumed significantly more whole fruit than non-consumers. No difference was found in total fiber intake.
Int. J. Child Health Nutr., May 2015
100% fruit juice does not lead to weight gain in children. Children consuming 100% juice had higher intake and adequacy of dietary fiber, vitamin C, magnesium and potassium.
Crit. Rev. Food Sci. & Nutr., June 2015 (Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics systematic review of data from 1995-2013)
No association was found between drinking 100% juice and early dental caries in nearly 2,300 American children ages 1-5 years. Indeed juice seems to have a protective effect against caries.
J of the Amer. Dental Assoc., Dec 2014
Community Dentistry Oral Epidemiol., Aug 2015
Juicing provides levels of nutrients equivalent to whole foods. When 100% juice was replaced with whole fruit in the diet of children, no difference was found in caloric levels or in the intake of 85% of the nutrients evaluated.
Current Nutr & Food Sci., Oct 2015
