Get Your Greens With Green Juice Recipes

Leafy green vegetables are some of the most beneficial foods there are and are the cornerstone to many juicing for weight loss recipes. They are the best source of almost all minerals, especially the trace minerals, and they contain chlorophyll, which helps to maintain magnesium and iron levels, reduces stress on the body, nourishes healthy bacteria, and can even be converted to hemoglobin.

They also provide the body with enzymes, oxygen and many other vitamins and phytonutrients. One of the best ways to get your greens is through green juice recipes. With these juicing recipes, it is possible to get your entire daily allowance of vegetables in one sitting. They take almost no energy to digest, which gives your digestive system a break and makes it possible for your body to concentrate on repairing and healing itself.

Another benefit of green alkalizing juice recipes is that they help your body return to a healthy alkaline state. Most of the foods in our modern diet are acidic, and this has contributed to poor energy, chronic diseases, overall fatigue and many other health problems. Leafy greens, on the other hand, are an alkalizing food, so juicing recipes that contain them can help counteract the effects of too much acid in our bodies.

These benefits are available to the body almost immediately because green juice recipes can usually be digested within a half an hour after consumption. In addition, none of the nutrients in these juicing recipes are bound by fiber, so the body assimilates nearly 100 percent of them.
