From celebrities to your average gal, to your soccer friend’s mom, to your grandmother, everyone swears into juicing and blending. Which is why this industry has grown into a multi-million (if not billions) dollar industry in just a few years.
As our human consumption and appetite for ‘fast food’ and ‘junk food’ increases, our diets are now deprived of essential nutrients that can help keep our immune system strong and healthy. And it’s mostly because of how we are raised. We are raised in this fast paced world where everything needs to be quick and efficient.
Instead of picking and harvesting fruits then making a freshly squeezed orange juice, we grab a carton of orange juice (with some pulp) from the grocery store thinking that it’s the same set of nutrients that we are getting per volume, it’s not.
Most of these commercial juices are just water packed with tons of sugar. Research even shows that an average American consumes as much as 3 lbs of sugar each week or about 3,550 pounds for an entire lifetime.
That is a lot of sugar and one where we as a generation have become addicted to, unfortunately. But several health advocates and internet personalities have launched war against this. And the response from people are overwhelming. It seems that people would pick the better and healthier choice if they have that option.
And because people are now able to access more information and kitchen appliances more easily than ever before, they’ve added it in their family routines. Most Americans and people around the world have a household or personal blender. If you don’t have one, these article on the 5 best ninja blenders for 2017 can be a great start. If you’re looking for comparisons between the Nutribullet VS the Nutri Ninja, I’ve written about those blenders too.
Because we have now been aware of how our body responds to sugar, more and more people have been conscious about it. And that’s a good thing because too much consumption of sugar can lead to a lot of metabolic disorders and diseases like Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Read more about Diabetes Mellitus here.
