JUICE FOR CHILDREN
Children with Diet Rich in Fruits and Vegetables Have Low Risk of Atherosclerosis Later in Life.
Consuming sufficient amounts of vegetables and fruits at a young age reduces the risk of atherosclerosis in adulthood, research shows. Dr. Mika Kahonen, a professor of clinical physiology at the University of Tampere in Finland, studied the effects of dietary habits on the arteries of 1622 children and adolescents aged 3 to 18 years over a period of twenty-seven years into adulthood. Researchers found that those who ate few fruits and vegetables at a young age had higher blood vessel stiffness risks during adulthood.
The researchers measured at arterial stiffness by arterial pulse wave velocity (PWV), which was 6% faster on average in the group that consumed less fruits and vegetables on average. The pulse wave velocity is the rate at which the blood passes through a certain section of the artery and shows the elasticity of the blood vessel wall. If the blood vessels are smooth, the blood will move in waves, and its velocity will be slowed. If the blood vessels are stiff, the blood will flow as if the vessels are slippery. The study was published in the American Heart Association.
"The blood vessels usually start aging already in the late teens," said Professor Ki Cheol Sung of Kangbuk Samsung Hospital's Department of Cardiology in South Korea. According to Sung, "it seems that eating a lot of fruits and vegetables during adolescence prevents early aging of the blood vessels."
Effects of Vegetable Juice with Each Life Stage
The most important point of an infant's growth is the brain and gland, especially the pituitary gland and the thymus. An important factor for this development is a clear blood with abundant nutrients, as well as VC and VB salts and minerals found in vegetable juice. Babies need twice the amount of organic calcium than adults, as this has a big impact on the baby’s bones, nervous system, and emotional health. It also impacts the activity of the growth plate and the development of the thymus gland. Start from pear juice and gradually incorporate carrot and spinach in the diet for a two months cycle. Adding kale and lettuce on top prevents and heals atopic dermatitis and stimulates infant's brain development and balanced growth.
It is a well-known fact that the lack of minerals or vitamins in childhood impedes the development of a normal brain and body. The lack of active Ca can impede growth of emotional health, in addition to forming incomplete bones and joints. Lack of Ca can also cause acidification, harming the bones. This can eventually lead to decreased immunity to allergies, asthma, common cold, and viruses by weakening the lymphocytes. Vegetable juice can prevent such conditions by providing not only Ca but also sulfur, phosphorous, and vitamin C. It can promote the best conditions for a child for growth during this period. For children who are more active, fruit and vegetable juices are truly best for their health. Juices prevent excursiveness, gives them more focus, and helps form a balanced diet.
At this age, brain activity and development is significantly important. Carrot (8), dandelion (2), and kale (6) juice helps raise focus, stabilizing the nervous system and mind to increase the student’s learning abilities.
This period in life is, especially for women, important in forming a healthy lifestyle for the rest of his or her life. It is an important period for preventing various diseases like arthritis, obesity, high blood pressure, adult diseases, and even depression and anorexic diseases caused by lack of Ca. Anemia and morning sickness, which are symptoms in pregnancy, may appear. With vegetable juice, women with morning sickness will be able to experience the effects right away.
Menopause to Elderly
People can achieve big things during this period, but it is also a time when different signals alert the body. Adult diseases such as continual headaches, migraines, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and loss of memory may occur during this period. It is important that people consume vegetable juice and pay special attention to a healthy lifestyle during this period.
