Why Cold Pressed Juice?

Juice Vs. Fruit

In order to get the nutrients of one 16-ounce juice, you’d need to eat two pounds of carrots, 10 or 12 apples or eight pounds of spinach! Cold-pressed juices allow you to get 95% of the nutrients you need in a highly concentrated form, letting vitamins, minerals and enzymes enter your bloodstream while giving your digestive system a well-needed rest.

 

Juice Your Way To Health

Juicing is great for weight loss, increased energy and a glowing complexion, but there’s also ample research that juicing has healing properties. Research suggests synthetic vitamins don’t prevent chronic disease. Since plant-based vitamins and minerals are absorbed in your bloodstream in just 15 minutes, they can help reduce the possibility of heart disease, cancer and strokes in a natural way. What else can juicing do?

 

  • Keep it Clean—A dynamite detox, juicing cleans out your cells, tissues, organs and blood, as well as your circulatory, digestive, endocrine, immune, lymphatic, muscular, reproductive, respiratory and nervous systems!
  • Build a Better Brain—Think about it: Research has found beetroot juice can increase blood flow to the brain, helping to prevent dementia and cognitive decline.
  • Energize From the Inside—Since juicing goes directly into your bloodstream, your cells get the nutrients in just 10 to 15 minutes—all without chewing or the effort of digestion.
  • Hydrate, Feel Great— Juicing is the first vitamin water, quenching your thirst and replenishing the fluids you need.
  • Detoxify Your Day—Toxins can enter your body through the mouth, nose and skin. Nutrients in low-pulp juices help to flush away these everyday pollutants.
  • Catch Some Zzzzs—The magnesium in juices made from leafy greens are nature’s sleeping pill, giving you a mellow effect that helps improve the quality of your rest.
  • De-Stress with Less—Vitamin C and magnesium found in cold-pressed juice helps you combat the stress hormone cortisol.
  • Build Your Bones—A healthy skeleton requires calcium and magnesium, easily found in kale, collards and broccoli.
  • Lengthen Your Life—Found in berries and red grapes, resveratrol helps prevent the damage that can lead to cancer and heart disease.
  • Impair Inflammation—Diets rich in high-fat processed foods can cause it, antioxidants and other nutrients in our juices can combat it.
  • Lose a Little— A delicious substitute for a meal (or two), cold-pressed juice reduces your “bad calorie” intake, boosting your metabolism.

 

Fresh or Processed?

You can drink pre-packaged juices, but vitamins and minerals can be killed in the pasteurization process. Fresh-pressed juices are filled with living enzymes, essential minerals, antioxidants and natural antibiotics.

 

Why Go Organic?

Chemical- and pesticide-free organic farming helps minimize the use of toxins and protect our water and soil. Better for you, and better for our planet.

 

What are GMOs?

Banned across the world, Genetically Modified Organisms are plants that have been genetically engineered to withstand chemical pesticides. With a growing body of evidence connecting GMOs with health problems and environmental damage, avoiding GE (genetically engineered) foods helps you avoid their unknown, long-term impact.

 

What is a juice cleanse?

A juice cleanse is the effective removal of waste in the body that has been accumulated over the years due to improper diet, pharmaceuticals and internal pollutants. Our cleansing goal is to alkalize the system and balancing acidity.

 

Can I cleanse if I’m diabetic?

Absolutely! In fact many people have helped or eliminated type 2 diabetes through juicing and a plant-based diet. All of our juices are sugar free or low in natural sugar. But, as with any new diet program, please consult your doctor first.

 

Can I cleanse while I’m taking medication?

In most cases yes, but check with your doctor before beginning any sort of cleanse or new diet as some foods can interact with medication.

 

Can I exercise while on a cleanse?

Moderate exercise supports the detox process and can make cleansing more enjoyable. Strenuous exercise is not recommended unless you are an experienced cleanser. Low-impact or no-impact activities such as walking, swimming, yoga or stretching can help with the cleansing process. A light walk will gently encourage lymphatic circulation. Do not continue any exercise regime if you begin to feel dizzy or lightheaded.
