Simply put, because raw foods are more nutrient dense. The benefits of raw foods are abundant, but often go unnoticed in the typical American diet, which is filled with processed, overcooked foods. Cooking greatly diminishes the healing properties in vegetables, fruits, sprouts, nuts and some grains and therefore limits the nutrients we receive when eating them.
Raw foods are rich with enzymes—the worker bees that carry out every metabolic action in your body. Enzymes equal life force. Raw foods are also packed with vitamins, minerals, phyto-nutrients and phyto-chemicals, which help protect against our biggest epidemics: heart disease, diabetes, and cancer! Beaming’s juices, soups, and salads are almost exclusively raw to give you the ultimate cleansing experience.
Living foods are those that have been soaked and sprouted. This process increases the amino acids in your food, easing digestion and increasing your absorption of nutrients while giving you greater energy.
Beaming’s cleanses use raw and living foods, providing your body with the vitamins, nutrients and fiber it needs to thrive, while not detoxifying too quickly. Think of your body as an attic that’s accumulated years of excess stuff. Starting a cleanse program is like stepping into that dusty, overcrowded attic to begin clearing out the stuff you don’t need. If you tried to clear out the attic in one day, you’d exhaust yourself and become overwhelmed and sick from the dirt and grime filling the air. We make sure that doesn’t happen!
Sure, steady, and joyful is the name of the game. Beaming’s team is here to make sure your cleansing experience is REVITALIZING, not toxic or chaotic.
