With living food come fibers, vitamins, antioxidants and other flavonoids. Raw eating favorises the elimination of the trash we accumulate in our bodies and ameliorates our intestinal flora and therefore our immune system.
This diet allows the vitamins, mineral salts and enzymes which foods contain to be kept intact.
Cooked foods have lost many of their enzymes. There is therefore a need for more energy in our body, for enzymes must be produced in order to facilitate the digestion of ingested food.
Indeed, by cooking foods, we destroy a good portion of their vitamins as well as their enzymes. Without these, we would need to rely on our own metabolism to produce the enzymes necessary for digestion and the assimilation of these nutrients. Furthermore, cooking modifies the texture and smell of foods. Raw-foodism allows you to discover or rediscover them.
It is important to understand that you don’t need to consume only raw food in order to feel the benefits. Every increase of the proportion of raw foods in your diet will benefit you.
