Healthy benefits of vegetables will be more to come when you eat rather than drink it in juice form.
Vegetable juice has become a new health trend that enjoy doing. Considered to be very effective in "cleaning" to optimize the performance of the digestive organs.
However, according to Brigitte Zeitlin, MPH, RD, CDN, a specialist in digestive disorders, diabetes, weight management and nutrition of women, "promises" it sounds too good to be true.
When converted to vegetable drinks, you will lose a lot of nutrients so feel hungry faster afterward, said Zeitlin.
Fruits and vegetables used in juice no longer have the same health benefits of vegetables are chewed directly in the mouth. The main reason is because the juice destroy vegetable fibers.
"Fiber is one of the important elements in vegetables that help you feel full with a healthy, improving intestinal health, helps regulate blood sugar, fight chronic diseases (such as cancer and diabetes), and help you maintain a healthy weight," said Zeitlin.
"Unfortunately, in addition to eliminating the fiber, the process of making vegetable juice can also destroy some vitamins and minerals, so that all that remains is the sugar content," he added.
Especially when you buy bottled juice, although the label says "no added sugar," the juice still contains sugar concentration of fruits and vegetables.
Thus, drinking vegetable juice packaging would likely cause a drastic increase in blood sugar levels, making you hungry, and eventually cause you to overeat.
