Thanksgiving has passed, and hopefully we were left with full bellies and important (albeit sometimes stressful) family time. Luckily, even if we stuffed ourselves with turkey legs and mashed potatoes, we have a useful dietary tool in fruit and vegetable juice. Primarily here we are focused on digestion, and here’s how fresh juice can help.
A sugar alcohol that pulls water into the large intestine, sorbitol is effective in increasing digestive efficiency. Found in fruits like apples, pears, and grapes, it's a powerful metabolic booster.
This one is pretty simple. Fruits and vegetables are high in water content, and it’s no mystery that we need plenty of H2O to keep our bodies functioning well. The stomach is no exception. With water as well as plenty of other nutrients, fruits and veggies are phenomenal means of improving digestion.
