The Difference Between Regular Juice vs Cold Press Juice:
In case you haven’t heard, juicing is trending. In recent times, we have seen growing awareness about how juice fast can help you lose weight, boost immunity, prevent cancer and cleanse your system.
If you are also thinking of trying a juice cleanse. You need to find out why you need cold pressed juice to get the benefits of juicing that you are looking for. Check the juicers at home for the technology they use.
1. Centrifugal Juice Extractors
Traditionally, this is the most common type of juicer. These typically utilize a fast-spinning metal blade that spins against a mesh filter, separating juice from flesh via centrifugal force. The juice and pulp are then separated into different containers. The problem with centrifugal juicers is that the fast-spinning metal blade generates heat, which destroys some of the enzymes in the fruits and vegetables you’re juicing. The heat also oxidizes those nutrients, rendering less nutritious juice than a cold-press juicer.
2. Cold Press Juicers
These newer juicers extract juice by crushing and pressing fruit and vegetables for the highest juice yield. This process produces no heat, thus maintaining more of the ingredients’ nutrients. Cold-Pressed juicing slowly extracts the juice from produce, First it crushes the produce into a pulp and then presses this pulp to extract the liquid. This breaks down the cell walls to release all of the phytochemicals and nutrients inside. Because they don’t produce heat and oxygen is not involved the juice from the fruits and vegetables have a high nutrient retention.
Cold pressed juicing also allows more juice to be extracted from your produce, so you waste less and are left with very dry pulp, unlike the centrifugal juicers, which leave very wet pulp with many nutrients still remaining.
A cold-pressed juicer however takes much longer to juice the fruits and vegetables as not as much can be fed into the machine at a time. Cold-pressed juicers are also more expensive.
What are the benefits of juicing?
Our body needs nutrients and minerals on daily basis, it's easier to get them from juices because they contain the liquid of so much fruit and vegetables that you would not be able to eat in one sitting. Juicing removes the fibre from the produce leaving pure nutrients. Fibre is a great nutrient for digestive health, however it does slow the absorption down of nutrients into the blood stream. This means that the vitamins, minerals and enzymes from juices are almost immediately absorbed into the blood and carried around the body. Digesting takes a lot of energy for the body to do, so having a juice allows your body to focus on other things such as cleansing, detoxifying, repairing and getting to the jobs it needs to instead of digesting, digesting, digesting!
Juicing is highly alkaline on the body, especially when using green leafy vegetables and citrus & it allows you to consume large amounts of raw vegetables which contain loads of nutrients in a single glass!
