Cold pressed juice is chock full of nutrients that are geared towards fighting toxins and boosting immunity and health, and can help ease the strain of detoxification on your body. The reason why cold pressed juice is so potent is because it lacks the fibrous pulp of the whole fruits and vegetables. You might be thinking “Don’t we want fiber, though?“
Here is what you need to know:
Juicing does remove the insoluble fiber from vegetables and fruits…but the soluble stuff still stays in there! And while fiber is a pivotal part of a healthy diet, getting rid of all the insoluble stuff simply allows the body to better absorb health-promoting phytonutrients like enzymes.
Since the body doesn’t have to break the fiber down in the digestive system before being able to be used, cold pressed juice is like a lightning bolt to the system. The nutrients immediately enter the body and start getting to work. That’s why when you take a sip of cold pressed juice, you immediately feel a kick of energy.
Cold pressed juice is made very differently from fresh squeezed juice:
Cold pressed is made using a hydraulic press and slow pulverizer to juice the fruits and veggies.
Fresh squeezed is made with a centrifugal juicer that uses an ultra fast spinning blade to extract the juice. The rapid motion of the blades creates heat and oxidation that breaks down the important enzymes and nutrients.
Cold pressed juice protects and preserves the nutrients of the fruits and vegetables: You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you drink cold pressed juice.
A few of the many benefits of cold pressed juices are:
Easily Increases Your Intake Of Veggies & Fruits (can get daily intake in one juice)
Enhances Your Energy (Drinking cold pressed juice floods your body with nutrients, which are rapidly absorbed by your body and helps restore body’s PH balance).
Supercharges Your Immune System (provides your body with a plethora of GOOD bacteria, and helps suppress pathogenic “bad” bacteria)
I am thoroughly enjoying my cold-pressed juices from @angiesjuicery. Check out their website and Instagram page. They have a full menu of juices, plus they will make custom juices (& juice cleanses) for you. I have them delivered right to my door (amazing!), however you can also find them at other locations in downtown Toronto. See website for details. www.angiesjuicery.com
