Raw foods are amazing with all the Vitamins, Minerals and Enzymes you get. I mean, you can't get all that from pizza? But this isn’t about picking on pizza, this is about how RAW food helps your body grow, fight disease and rebuild your body. Because at the end of the day, your bodies health is all that matters.
Nutrients are the building blocks of your body. Each RAW food provides your body with one or multiple nutrients you need to function and grow. So let's say you need more Fiber and Magnesium, Pitaya would be a perfect RAW food to get it;)
Food enzymes found in RAW food are essential in breaking down food into more absorbable components. Without food enzymes, less nutrients would enter your blood stream for your body to use. A few things these nutrients do are to flush toxins from the body, help produce energy, reproduce and replenish cells.
Vitamins are essential for your bodies growth and development. Cells depend on vitamins to function properly. Healthy cells play an important role in regulating metabolism, strengthening the immune system and to help convert fats into energy.
Minerals like Calcium, Fiber, Magnesium and Potassium are just a few minerals lacking in todays traditional diet for most people around the world. You know where you can get large amounts of minerals? You guessed it, RAW food! Just like Vitamins, Minerals play a important role for cells, as well as tissue, bones and organs.
Want your bodies pH balance to be alkaline? On a 1-14 scale, 1 being acidic and 14 being alkaline, RAW fruits and vegetables are more alkaline. This is important as it’s harder for disease to enter your body in a high alkaline state.
Phytonutrients are natural chemicals RAW foods can contain. They’re not essential to your body like vitamins or minerals, but they help fight disease and keep your body working properly.
Your food intake, just like many other things requires balance. Are you getting enough good food in your body to make up for the bad? RAW food is a powerful source for keeping your body healthy and strong, so why not take advantage of mother natures kitchen.
