Juicing is a great way to increase your intake of fruits and vegetables, as well as phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. Here are a few more reasons why we love to juice and how it can benefit your health!
1. The 3 Big Aʼs. Antioxidant, Alkalizing, and Antiinflammatory. Because our cold pressed juices are made up of 100% fruits and vegetables, all of the benefits that fresh produce provides are found in your juice. Foods with the highest level of nutrients tend to come from fruits and vegetables, so having a daily fresh pressed juice will protect our bodies against free radical damage, help prevent disease and illness, and maintain a healthy pH balance.
2. High in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Because we use a cold press extraction method, the integrity of the juice remains. Cold press extraction means no heat was used to make the juice. What is left is a highly concentrated, raw, unpasteurized and “live” juice chock full of phytonutrients, including enzymes, vitamins, and minerals floating in your juice, ready to be consumed.
3. Quick absorption rate. Since the insoluble fiber is removed by the extraction method, the juice is very easy to digest, giving you the instant benefits of eating fresh fruits and vegetables. This is why some might say they can feel an instant rush of energy and improved mood when drinking juice. Due to its quick absorption rate, juicing has been proven to be very useful for those with a compromised immune and digestion system.
