Juicing isn’t just an awesome thing to do for your overall good health – it’s also one of the best nutritional steps you can take to speed up your muscle gains. The fresh fruits and vegetables you use for your juicing, boost your immune system, reduce inflammation, repair your digestive system, help to balance out hormone levels (especially testosterone and cortisol), improve insulin sensitivity and help to regulate blood sugar levels. All of these effects help your body to add muscle. Write Your Own Muscle-Gaining Prescription Choosing the right blends of fresh, whole vegetables and fruits for juicing is a lot like writing a prescription. You can actually tailor your juicing ingredients to match certain health goals, whether it be boosting immunity or raising testosterone levels. This is one of the great benefits of juicing because you can address specific needs with specific ingredients and change it up as needed. Because fresh, whole vegetables and fruits are loaded with a variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, you’re never accomplishing just one thing at a time. The same vegetable that boosts immunity also regulates blood sugar and reduces inflammation and so on. You don’t just get one micronutrient with one vegetable, so while you can create a juice that addresses specific goals, you will also be getting plenty of other micronutrients that your body needs on a daily basis.
