Juicing To Improve Diabetes

If you want to lessen your dependence on diabetes medicine and improve your health status naturally, Power Juicing is the answer. It provides an abundance of nutrients, antioxidants, and phytochemicals in an amount that would be difficult to receive through even the best of healthy diets.

That's not just random talk, either. Recent research reveals that raw produce tops the list as super foods for diabetics. It nourishes your body and stabilizes your blood sugar levels in ways cooked produce simply can't.

And what better way to receive that raw produce -- and plenty of it - - than through Power Juicing?

It wasn't too long ago that sugar -- even the sugar in fruits --- was a diabetic's nemesis. Avoid it at all costs, the experts cried. Today, opinions have changed 180 degrees. Even with diabetes, you can eat just about anything you like -- including fruit.

Research also shows that specific vitamins and minerals target this disease. The following are only a few of those essential nutrients which can help you take the trek from diabetes to vibrancy!

Vitamin A. This well-known vitamin protects the lining of your digestive system. Produce that contains an abundance of this vitamin includes broccoli, beet greens, carrots, chard, kale, romaine lettuce, spinach, and watercress. Discover the perfect combination for your taste buds.

Vitamin B3. Known as niacin, this building block of health metabolizes carbohydrates and fat. For diabetics, it's also essential for the proper functioning of the digestive system. You can find it in brewer's yeast, peanuts, and wheat bran.

Vitamin B5. Pantothenic Acid. This nutrient looms large in restoring a diabetic's system. It plays a major role in the support of enzyme functions. Specifically, these enzymes are essential to the breakdown of food and the release of much needed energy. What foods should you choose? There are three super stars: broccoli, cauliflower, and kale.

Here is a delicious Power Juice recipe for you to sample!
