Did you know that 95% of the vitamins and enzymes our bodies need are found in the juice of raw fruits and vegetables? But, we would need to eat 2 lbs of carrots, 10-12 apples, or 8 lbs of spinach to get the same amount of nutrients you receive in one 16 oz juice. When you drink juice, highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes rapidly enter the bloodstream absorbing all of the nutritional benefits of the fruits and vegetables and giving your digestive organs a much-needed rest.
There is lots of research that proves the healing properties of juicing. Not only will juicing facilitate weight loss, increase energy levels, strengthen immunity, bones and a glowing complexion, it may also reduce chances of heart disease, cancer and strokes, three of the leading causes of death. Most vitamin supplements don’t help prevent chronic disease as they are synthetic and a laboratory simulation of natural, plant-based vitamins and minerals.
Why Cold Press?
The cold pressed juicing process requires love and patience. What makes it so special? Cold pressed juicers extract nectar directly from the pulp, keeping nutrients and enzymes intact. Traditional juicers cut and grind, exposing fresh produce to heat which oxidizes and compromises essential vitamins, enzymes, proteins and minerals from the juice. Simply, its the closest thing to raw, pure fruit or vegetables and allows you to get a concentrated amount of nutrients that would otherwise be difficult to achieve by eating raw fruits and vegetables.
Juicing or Blending?
Why does it have to be one or the other? Juices and smoothies both serve two different, yet equally important, roles in our wellness regime. When we juice, we remove indigestible fiber making nutrients more readily available to the body in much larger quantities than if you were to eat the fruits and vegetables whole. It’s like injecting nutrients directly into your blood stream. On the other hand, blended smoothies contain the whole fruit or vegetable which includes the broken down fiber content making it easier to digest, however its nutritional value is diluted as it enters the blood stream slower. Smoothies act as great healthy meal replacements.
