We all know how essential it is to get the right amount of sleep, and if you’re constantly awoken or kept awake by your partners snoring; it’s not only frustrating, but long term it will harm your health and well-being.
A major contributor to snoring
One of the things that contributes to snoring is excess mucous. If you can lessen the amount of mucous that builds up in the throat and nasal passengers, you will free up the airways which can reduce or maybe even prevent someone from snoring altogether. One of the simplest ways to achieve this is by juicing, yup, juicing.
The benefits of juicing
More and more folks are taking up juicing as a way of improving their nutrition and overall health. The fact that the ingredients are raw means that the nutrients they contain remain intact and unadulterated a big plus. And to add to that juicing vegetables makes them easier to digest, so you get the full nutritional benefit.
An easy way to get your 5 per day
A lot of people struggle to get their 5 portions of fruit and veggies per day, but juicing makes that an absolute no brainer. To get the full benefit from juicing, you should consume it on an empty stomach, about half an hour before you eat anything solid. The fact that your stomach is empty means there’s nothing else in it to interfere with the digestion process, and it will speed it up.
Include more veggies than fruits in your juices
A lot of people prefer juicing fruits more than veggies, as fruits are sweeter. But you don’t get sweetness without sugar; or in the case of fruits – fructose – which is essentially the same. In other words juices made up predominantly from fruits contain surprisingly high amounts of sugar. It’s far more beneficial to make veggies your main ingredient.
Lemons and Limes are the exceptions
The only exceptions to the rule in terms of fruits are lemons and limes. Neither of these contain anywhere near the same levels of fructose than other fruit does. Another good thing about them is that their zingy taste is great for disguising that more bitter taste that some dark leafy vegetables impart to a juice recipe.
The other piece of advice to consider is that you should use organic fruit and veg wherever possible. It doesn’t have the same chemical pesticide contamination that non-organic produce has.
Snoring reduction juice recipe
Here is the recipe we promised you earlier for a juice concoction that will help to eliminate excess mucus; one of the main causes of snoring:
- 2 Apples
- 2 Carrots
- 1/4 of a Lemon
- 1″ knuckle of Ginger
Remember that where possible, all ingredients should be organic.
Foods to avoid
There are numerous foods that are renowned for making snoring worse. These include things like:
- Drinking alcohol in excess
- Eating too much chocolate
- Eating too much fried food
- Eating food that is heavily floured
- Eating too much processed food
Banish snoring and get your holistic health lifestyle back on track
By eliminating these foods or at least cutting them back as much as possible, and instead drinking freshly prepared juices containing natural, raw ingredients, you’ll find that you will experience less mucus constricting your airways, and that this will help to alleviate snoring, finally giving your partner that good night sleep they deserve.
