Everyone is aware of the overall health benefits of a diet based on lots of raw vegetables and fruits, unprocessed grains and nuts and the body’s need for fibre. But let’s be honest – no one wants to munch on carrot sticks 24/7.
There is an easier, highly nutritious and far more enjoyable method for getting all your needed nutrients, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fibre on a daily basis. In fact, you’re reading this because you are considering purchasing a juicer as the optimal solution to a healthy diet. By now, you have also discovered there are two kinds of juicers: the Cold Press Juicers and the centrifugal juicers.
Virtually all medical and consumer studies have determined that the Cold Press Juicing method is superior when it comes down to delivering healthy benefits to you and your family.
Centrifugal Juicers involve both chopping blades and a rapidly spinning strainer. Heat, static electricity and large amounts of air are drawn in; nutrients are destroyed as oxidation occurs. Essential enzymes in fruit and vegetable juice die at temperatures exceeding 50 degrees Celsius.
Cold Press Juicers don’t employ chopping blades, heat inducing spinning motions or strainers. Cold Press Juicers are designed to extract all the juice from the fruit or veggie by a slow speed masticating process.
The slow non-heat producing extraction keeps all the nutrients, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fibre in their core form – right from the vegetable or fruit – and delivers them directly into your system with each glass of juice. Your juice tastes better; fresher, purer and more like the item(s) you are juicing.
Cold Press Juicers are also more economical. They extract more juice from foods and because the juice has not been ‘pre-cooked’ it has a longer shelf life in your refrigerator.
Let’s get more specific as to the health benefits of Cold Pressed Juicers. All of us need a substantial amount of green leafy vegetables to be healthy. Why? Because green leafy vegetables deliver more oxygen to your body’s cells than any other single item. Greens are a rich source of chlorophyll; chlorophyll helps the blood deliver oxygen to all your cells plus it plays a key role in helping to neutralize free radicals that cause damage to cells.
Leafy green vegetables offer the highest nutritional bang per calorie of any food. They are rich in minerals, including iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium, and vitamins, including vitamins K, C, E, and many of the B vitamins.
They provide a variety of phytonutrients including beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Phytonutrients protect the body against free radical damage, stimulate detoxifying enzymes, support the immune system and act as antiviral and antibacterial agents.
Greens are alkalizing and help maintain a healthy PH level. Dark, leafy greens contain essential omega-3 fatty acids, which are vital for all body functions and protect against heart disease by lowering bad cholesterol.
Greens are powerful antioxidants and protect the body from damage due to toxins in the environment and the foods we eat. Antioxidants neutralize these toxins and clear them from the body.
Medical science has proven WHY you need to eat a lot of vegetables, especially the dark green leafy ones; we have explained why Cold Press Juicers deliver the highest return on nature’s goodness – now it is up to you to take the next step and start juicing your way to health.
