Juicing As A Colorful Way To Achieve Good Health

Going healthy may be a challenge to some, because it may ask so much lifestyle changes. And it is especially hard for those who have gotten used to so many unhealthy practices.

According to a joint report published by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, an adult must at least need to eat 400 grams of fruits and vegetables every day (excluding starchy foods). That is quite a mouthful to chew on every day, which is why IAJ Wellness Corporation (IAJWC) has been promoting juicing in the Philippines.

The Wellness in Color workshop brought by IAJ Wellness Corporation allowed some of its participants, to experience juicing first hand. They used Matstone Horizontal Slow Juicer and Breville Juice Fountain Max, and got to taste their concoction.

The key benefit of juicing is it skips two processes of eating, which is mastication or chewing, and digestion. Food needs to be broken down, so that the body could absorb the food better. With juicing, all the nutrients from the food could be readily absorbed by the body through the bloodstream, unlike with just blending the food which only skips mastication. Aside from this, juicing keeps life enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which most of the time are taken away through cooking. This also allows detoxification which prevents chronic diseases from unhealthy lifestyles, and promotes healthy ageing.

With summer starting to heat things up and with most fruits and vegetables are becoming more available and abundant, IAJWC offers two of its wellness products to help in starting a healthy juicing lifestyle to cool off this hot season— the Breville® Juice Fountain MaxTM and MATSTONE® wonder machine. While it is obvious that these two are very different on how they juice fruits and vegetables, both could do the same work. It is only a matter of preference or lifestyle choice, whether they need their juices fast and be on the go, or enjoy the experience of putting their favorite fruits and vegetables through the juicer and see how juices are made.

Some of the participants also got the chance to make their own concoction by applying what they learned from the Wellness in Color workshop by IAJ Wellness Corporation. They chose their own ingredients to juice and they had to explain why they got these ingredients, including the name of their concoction.

While some, especially those who are new to juicing, may just put in all their favorite fruits and vegetables because they like how it tastes, people should be conscious with what they are juicing and the nutrients their body need. Too much fruits, especially those that are sugary, may not be that beneficial at all, and may cause stomach upsets because of too much starch. While juicing vegetables is good, the taste may become unbearable to drink. The balance between the two is important in juicing to maximize its benefits, and have an enjoyable time drinking every concoction.

That is why, IAJWC came up with a juicing workshop to share tips on how to make juicing enjoyable and provide recipes that are meant for some key health areas. IAJWC held the workshop at the WOW Group Showroom where they invited some of their clients, Breville® and MATSTONE® Horizontal Slow Juicer owners. The workshop focused on five colors that are dedicated to key health areas that need some boost to have a complete enhancement with the body’s overall wellness.

Starting with the color red, juices with this hue has lycopene, anthocyanin, ellagic acid, vitamin c, and quertcetin which help in keeping the heart healthy. Yellow-orange juices on the other hand are rich in alpha and beta carotene, vitamins a and c, lutein, and potassium which are good for the joints and vision. Green juices may not be attractive for most, but it is packed with magnesium, iron, sulforaphane, calcium, vitamin k, folate, as well as lutein, and these nutrients help in detoxifying the liver and keep it healthy. There are also the white juices, which are rich in nutrients and vitamins, but it is best known to improve blood pressure with its allium and flavonoids. Lastly, the blue-purple juices can help prolong life and promote good memory.

Some of the participants were not afraid in using malunggay in creating their own juices, after they have learned its nutritional value and getting some tips in keeping its flavor tolerable from the Wellness in Color workshop by IAJ Wellness Corporation.

“Whether we choose a fast or slow juicer, we have to be conscious of what we are juicing,” shared by Ms. Dianne R. Dupa RND, one of the facilitator of the workshop, reiterating the importance of choosing the right ingredients, with the right amount, for their juicers. With these tips, IAJWC hopes that more people would try juicing to take care of their health, and at the same time, make juicing less stressful, and as fun as possible. Whether people choose, Breville® or MATSTONE® Horizontal Slow Juicer to juice their fruits and vegetables, they can be sure to be on their colorful way to a good health.

MATSTONE® Horizontal Slow Juicer and Breville® are exclusively distributed by IAJ Wellness Corporation and available in all leading appliance and specialty stores nationwide.
