| January 2014


Millions of Americans don’t get the recommended daily amounts of fruits and vegetables in their diets. The Everything Giant Book of Juicing (F+W Media, 2013) by Teresa Kennedy is packed with 300 recipes for fresh, delicious and easy juices for nutrition on the run. In this excerpt you will learn what to eat and how to begin juicing for beauty. For nutritious juicing recipes for beautiful skin, hair and nails, read 4 Juicing Recipes for Healthy Skin.

You can purchase this book from the Mother Earth Living store: The Everything Giant Book of Juicing.

Juicing for Healthy Skin, Hair and Nails

Every year, people spend a fortune trying to achieve three things: a glowing complexion; thick, shiny hair; and strong, beautiful nails. But the real secret to getting, and maintaining, these things, is nutrition. If you’re dropping big bucks on creams for your skin, pricy hair products, and weekly manicures, you’re missing out on the most effective way to ensure you look great—juicing! Beauty may be only skin deep, but it begins on the inside—with a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables that provide your skin, hair, and nails with the nutrients they need.

Keratin

The fact is, your skin, hair, and nails are some of the most powerful indicators of your overall health. That’s because they have a common building block, a protein called keratin. As keratin cells naturally push upward through the skin, they die and then harden, turning into your hair and nails, or are “shed” as the skin cells are replaced. Healthy bodies will produce smooth nails without ridges; thick, strong hair that isn’t prone to falling out or breakage; and a clear glowing complexion, while problems in these areas can be a signal from your body that you’re not getting the nutrients you need.

Consider also that so many skin care manufacturers are turning to Nature’s medicine chest and substituting vitamins, natural oils, fruit acids, and nutrients in topical cosmetics. Good as those aids may be, it only makes sense to begin your beauty regime from the inside out.

What to Eat

Here are some of the most important nutrients for a glowing complexion, beautiful hair, and strong, healthy nails:

While I appreciate that this is a book promo article, it is lacking information and barely skims the surface. When making recommendations as to which foods contain which vitamins or elements, it is always so easy to use foods that Americans eat. However, there are a far larger number of foods that are consumed by a more diverse population that contain more nutrients than the ones this book is recommending. The precautions are also very misleading. Perhaps the book describes more in detail, but our population is very self-educated and I think would appreciate more explanation. For example, Mary mentions that carrots are an excellent source of Vitamin A. While I agree, there are various types of Vitamin A, and the only fruit that i know containing five kinds of Vitamin A is wolfberry. Easily available and very nutritious especially for our younger generation. And it boosts the immune system. Win Win for skin and health.

Vitamin A is necessary for the maintenance and repair of skin tissue. Look for it in raspberries, kale, and cherries…………… But you forgot the best source being carrots. A carrot juice a day keeps the doctor away! Plus leaves you with shiny hair, healthy teeth, strong fast growing nails, glowing skin and also in my case anyway continually improving eyesight I only juice unpeeled certified organic carrots and do this daily. Occasionally mixing with lemon juice and ginger and often kale.
