Juicing Vs. Blending: Should You Choose?

I have received many questions about the difference between blenders such as the Ninja, NutriBullet or VitaMix. All these appliances have been referred to as juicers. But they are not juicers. They are blenders.

What is a juicer you may ask?  A juicer is an appliance that separates the juice (water and nutrients plus soluble fiber) from the insoluble fiber. The juicer pours out one spout and the pulp is ejected from another place. A blender, on the other hand, keeps everything in one container and blends it all into a smooth pureed concoction.

I’m continually asked what is better.  Does one offer more health benefits? They both have a place in a healthy kitchen. They offer different things. I do both. They are beneficial in different ways.

The Benefits of Juicing

Because juice is minus the fiber, the digestive system doesn’t have to work as hard to break down the food and absorb the nutrients. Juice is alike pouring an infusion of nutrients into your cells. They are readily available and in higher quantity because you can juice more than you would normally blend. After all, you can only fit so much into one container. And if you have a sensitive digestive system or an illness that prevents you from eating much fiber, juice is particularly helpful. Also, if you have an illness, juice is particularly helpful because it is loaded with enzymes that spare your organs energy zapping work in producing enzymes. This frees up your system to focus more on healing and repair. These nutrients nourish and restore the body at the cellular level. Juices are particularly healing and detoxifying. Also, juicing makes it easier to lose weight.

The Benefits of Blending

Smoothies offer the entire fruits and vegetables—fiber, skins and all. Blending does break the fiber apart, making it easier to digest. Smoothies tend to be more filling. Think of them for colon health. Also, a green smoothie can add some substance on a juice fast day.
