It is really simple to improve your juicing recipes and fight with fat and calories more effectively. Most of us don’t even realize how much we are exposed to various kinds of danger like chemicals used in our work places, pollution, harmful factors in the air we breathe or even the sun. We don’t realize that all those things damage not only our health but destroy our plans involving diet and weight loss.

Those substances are called xenoestrogens and they are known as hormone disruptors. They destroy the effect that estrogen produces. Thanks to estrogen our body has a difficulty in fat storage, but xenoestrogens works otherwise, they make weight loss difficult and are harmful for our body. Luckily we can defend ourselves from those hormone disrupting chemicals. That is the moment when cruciferous vegetables comes in. They are rich in DIM (diindolylmethane) and I3C (indole-3-carbinol).

These substances can contribute to body fat reduction, blood sugar control, detoxification or hormonal balance. So unfortunately you have to admit that our moms were right when they forced us to eat spinach or broccoli. Cruciferous vegetable list should become a sanctity for those who hold a diet and want to lose some weight. Beside allowing your body faster loss of weight they are healthy and essential for proper functioning of your body. You must know that cruciferous vegetables allows your body liver detoxification.

By absorbing nutrients from those vegetables your body don’t have to fight with xenoestrogens, because it defeats them automatically. Here is the list of cruciferous vegetables that should be used while making juicing recipe: kale, radish, turnip, daikon, watercress, bok choy, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts.

All those vegetables are proved to be very healthy and what’s more they support the digestive system. And as you probably know, healthy digestive system is essential to proper absorbing all the nutrients. To increase the intake of nutrients you can add some fat to your jucing recipe like coconut, avocado slices or pumpkin seeds.
