Let’s Get Raw: Benefits of Juicing Raw Food with Tips and Facts from Dr. DiGiallorenzo

  • April 23, 2014

Consider how overly full and tired you often feel following a big meal of processed foods. Even if the pasta you eat is made from whole grains and the meat you consume is minimally processed, your body’s digestive system must still perform a substantial amount of work to break down the foods you’ve eaten. At LANAP & Implant Center of Pennsylvania in Collegeville and Williamsport, Dr. David DiGiallorenzo offers comprehensive
nutritional therapy
for overall health and wellness, focusing on the ways our bodies utilize the foods we consume.

Why Choose Raw Food Juicing?

With juicing, you get all of the detoxifying benefits of fresh, organic produce in a liquid form that is easily digested. When you juice raw foods, you unlock the full detoxifying potential of the entire fruit or vegetable. Additional benefits of raw fruit and vegetable juicing include:

  • A general feeling of improved wellbeing
  • Improved sleep
  • Liver support
  • Correction of hormonal imbalances in both men and women
  • Uplifted mood
  • Diminished problems with sweating and body odor
  • Anti-aging properties
  • May assist with the management of allergies
  • Increased natural energy, so you don’t feel so tired during the day
  • Improved ability to lose excess weight in a way that is entirely healthy

For many men and women new to the idea of juicing, the process and innumerable recipes available online can be enough to seem overwhelming. The whole point of raw juicing, however, is to return to the fundamental basics of nutrition. The process can be incredibly simple, and recipes don’t have to be exact. With a good, quality juicer and an assortment of organic fruits and vegetables, you’ll be on your way to healthier living in no time.

Some of the most commonly used fruits and vegetables used in raw juicing recipes include the following (remember to buy organic and locally sourced foods whenever possible):

  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Celery, parsley,
  • Apples, pears, pineapples, and papaya
  • Citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, and grapefruit
  • Bell peppers
  • Hot peppers
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Spinach, kale, lettuce, cabbage, and broccoli
  • Cranberries, blueberries, and strawberries
  • Carrots
  • Wheatgrass and dandelion greens
