Benefits Of Juicing At Home

juicing

Ah, who doesn’t love a fresh juice or a refreshing smoothie? What’s more, it can be made right at the comforts of your own home!

Thus, here are some benefits of juicing at home:

  • It ensures that your body will directly absorb nutrients. You see, juicing is more than just getting yourself something fresh and refreshing to drink. Making your own juice drink at home – whether it’s done via the best masticating juicer or a blender – ensures that your body will be able to directly absorb the fruit or the vegetable’s nutrients, as opposed to “preservatives-filled” juice drinks in plastic bottles or cardboard boxes at the grocery store.
  • It helps your body get rid of toxins. Directly absorbing the fruit, the vegetable’s nutrients via juicing at home will mostly have two effects on your body: (1) improve your overall health condition and (2) help your body detoxify. That’s because the said nutrients will be evenly distributed throughout your body and in more than enough amounts to help your body fight off diseases and get rid of toxins lurking inside.
  • It helps you mix “healthy” and “favorite” together. Indeed, there’s a huge difference between “healthy food” and “favorite food.” Not all people love healthy food, but everyone have their own favorite food. The same applies to drinks. And when juicing at home, healthy and favorite can be mixed together for one fresh and refreshing drink you’ll surely love to have over and over again.

In conclusion, juicing at home offers more than just getting yourself something fresh and refreshing to drink. It also offers you the chance to be healthy, without totally compromising on what you love to eat or drink. Moreover, it helps improve your overall body condition – via directly absorbing the fruit or the vegetable’s nutrients, evenly distributing it all over your body, fighting off diseases, getting rid of toxins, helping with digestion, and reducing sugar intake.

So, what are you waiting for? Start juicing at home now!

Facts About Sawfish You Don’t Want To Miss

saw-like

If there’s a swordfish, which takes after its sword-like characteristic, there’s also a sawfish, which takes after its – you guessed it – saw-like characteristic.

Ladies and gentlemen, here are facts about sawfish you don’t want to miss:

  • Sawfishes are also known as carpenter sharks.
  • They come from a family of rays called Pristidae.
  • The Pristidae is the only existing family under the biological order Pristiformes. The name itself comes from Ancient Greek word “pristes,” which means “sawyer.”
  • Sawsharks also exist, but comes from a different biological order called Pristiophoriformes.
  • Currently, there are seven known sawfish species. However, all are now considered critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
  • They are usually – and previously – found in the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.
  • Smalltooth sawfishes were once distributed rampantly. Sadly, the species’ range has significantly reduced at 90% and its population has reduced to presumably 95% or more.
  • Thus, capturing sawfishes is now illegal in the United States and Australia. As of 2007, importing any kind of sawfish is also deemed illegal.
  • Sawfishes have saw-like rostrums, which are both used for stunning and slashing a prey.
  • Their saw-like teeth are not really teeth, however, but rather denticles or modified tooth-like structures.
  • Sawfishes are known to spend most of their time just lying on the seafloor.
  • They are also known to be lethargic, unless a prey passes them, in which they suddenly come up from the sea floor – stunning and slashing it with their rostrums.
  • They are known to be nocturnal as well.
  • They are only estimated to mate once in every two years and only produces up to eight litters.
  • A sawfish is found on coins and banknotes of the CFA franc. It was believed to represent fecundity and prosperity.
  • A sawfish is also found on the Battle Badge of Small Combat Units during World War II in Germany.
  • Aztecs believed that sawfishes were earth monsters.
  • Asian shamans used the rostrums of sawfishes for exorcisms and other rituals to fight off demonic possessions and unknown diseases.

Check out the best jig saw in my opinion, which is just like a sawfish’s rostrum.

In conclusion, sawfishes are truly remarkable. But sadly, they are now considered critically endangered. One lesson there is to learn about sawfishes is that, they are just like any one of us – breathing life and just trying to make a mark in the world with their uniqueness. Thus, every one of us has the responsibility to protect this kind of uniqueness.
