There are many ways to get the nutrients your body needs these days, vitamins and supplements to be more popular than most alternatives. These things are majorly advertised and so they direct and consume people’s attention the most. There are also other ways though, there is juicing, blending, or just eating the food whole or raw. They all have their cons and good things about them but what are the differences? In this article you will find what most fits you and why you’d rather choose one over the other to your personal preference, as I go over the differences it will become clear.
Juicing Pros and Cons
Juicing is the extraction of the juices and the nutrients of the vegetable or fruit you are using, along with the phytonutrients, the plant chemicals that are beneficial to you. First and foremost, when you put something like for example, a apple, in it’s juiced form, it becomes a lot easier for your body to absorb the nutrients because it is already in liquid form, saving your body from having to use a lot of energy for digestion you will feel it quite quickly. Juicing has also been known to help people detox, boost their metabolism as I have myself from this, and losing weight, you can also get a lot of nutrition in that might take a while to eat, all you have to do is drink it. The only true con to juicing is that, almost all fiber can be lost, since you are liquefying your food, the solid mass that contains fiber will be mainly gone, but you can always use the leftovers for cooking.
Blending Pros and Cons
Blending as most people already know is taking your assortment of things you wish to make a mix out of and blend it together. Although it could take a little more time to absorb the nutrients, it’s a little faster if you don’t have much time to juice, also their is more variety when you are trying to produce a certain flavor, you can pretty much put whatever you like into a blender. Whether it is a smoothie or milkshake, you can make it your own and just unordinary. A real con to the blender is the quantity, to produce a large mass of what you plan to make requires a larger blender, and you’ll need a pretty nice blade so you can’t go to cheap on one, that’s about it.
Whole Food Pros and Cons
Eating a whole food is the most natural thing to consuming food and the only real con is that it might be a little time consuming when you have little time to eat and you can lose some nutrients during the digestion process, this requires a longer duration of digestion because it has to actually brake it down. The good thing about eating whole foods is that, you wont lose the fiber and fats that come with it, while getting about 70% of the nutrients. Also not always but sometimes it can be more filling than blending or juicing. Not a lot of cons here honestly speaking, all these will be according to personal preference, everyone is different, pick which one works for you.
