From countless Elizabeth Street moms to Hollywood stars, juicing has become the secret beauty weapon of so many lately. And when you hear about the health benefits of juicing – it’s no wonder.
Improved digestion, a clearer mind, bright eyes, and glowing skin are all noted effects of nourishing your body with this ultimate clean nutrition–not to mention maintaining an ideal body weight. A rich source of antioxidants, minerals, and enzymes, raw juices and blended drinks are excellent defenses against daily stress and the toxicity of our environment.
Naomi Watts is one A-lister who has eagerly jumped on the juice bandwagon. “Drinking juices is extremely satisfying: I feel like I’m being rewarded with every sip, especially with the green juices, and watching my children drink all those greens is the greatest feeling, knowing they are consuming all the right nutrients,” says Watts. “I sleep better at night knowing that all the goodness from the veggies and fruits has gone directly into our systems. There’s too much messing with food these days, so the purity of juice makes it the nectar of the gods!”
Watts is one of several stars who proclaim their love for the juice and share recipes in the new book “The Juice Generation,” by Eric Helms.
