And the winner is……..

I get this question very often, is blending just as good as juicing? The answer is that they are both equally great based on how your digestive system operates.  In order to make that last statement true, you need to blending using a high powered blender that is designed to make smoothies such as the Vitamix ,Blendtec, Ninja and the Nutri-bullet.  These blenders are designed to chop the fruits, vegetables and herbs so fine that you can drink it.  Trust me I tried this with my Cuisinart and I was choking down the pulp – haha. 

Juicing: 

The difference is all in the pulp.  Since my personal digestive system does not like large amounts of fiber, I prefer to use a juicer that takes out about 95% of the pulp.  I even strain it a second time just to make is super smooth.  The less pulp you have, the easier it is for your gi tract to digest it and pass it through.  Juicing keeps your digestive system relaxed and does not cause it to work as hard.  This is why it is perfect for those with IBS, Crohn’s and Colitis.  Some of the vitamins are lost in the pulp that is extracted and that’s why some prefer to use a high powered blender instead. 

Blending: 

If you have no major digestive issues and you can handle fiber just fine, than blending is a great choice for you.  The blender chops up the pulp so fine that you can barely taste it and you get the maximum vitamins, minerals, enzymes from the pulp as well as the juice.  As Dan Mcdonald says, “it does not matter what you are using, blender/juicer as long as you are doing it”!  Although, some of the vitamins are not extracted from the pulp as with a juicer, you get a ton of benefits from both blending and juicing.

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and
    engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking
    intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

We really have forgotten about the power of natural living and have switch to assigning medication for everything!! Thank you for your words and have a great day:):)
