Cold Pressed Juice: We all love fruit juices, right? Juices that give us the goodness of the wonderful fruits without the hard work of peeling and extracting. Yeah, who doesn’t love that!But what we don’t really look into is the fact that when we purchase a normal juice from the store, it is infused with added ingredients, and the process of creating it is not all that ‘pure’, so to speak. And that pretty much diminishes the point of spending money to get the goodness of fruits without the hassle.
Enter Cold Pressed Juice – Same Fruit Juice, but pure juice, no pulp, extracted uncontaminated, without losing nutrients and no added ingredients. If this sounds fake to you, no it’s not. There are juices like that available. It’s just that we are a bit ignorant to look out for such details while purchasing them.
Cold Pressed Juices are the ones that are extracted from the fruits and vegetables by exposing them to an extreme pressure between two blades, called the hydraulic press process. This process retains all the nutrients, which are otherwise lost in other techniques like the centrifugal. Granted, it’s pricey in comparison. But we are spending money on not so good juices anyway, why not spend a little more and treat ourselves with unaltered goodness.
Benefits of Cold Pressed Juice
If you need an extra push, you should know that cold pressed juices offer some amazing health benefits, better than what a normal juice would.
For starters, it helps our digestive system recuperate better since it is pulpless. This means better metabolism, which means a step towards weight loss. If incorporated into daily life, these juices not only cleanse but also repair us from the inside. Many people adhere to juice detox regularly to cleanse themselves.
This leads to long-term skin nourishment from the inside. Rejuvenated, fresh and glowing skin which feels hydrated – are some of the beauty benefits cold pressed juices offer. You can say that is what you drink the normal juices for, but the process of creation and a number of nutrients you eventually get to consume make a world of difference.
And it’s not that the only way to treat yourself to some cold pressed juice is by buying it from the market. You can definitely make some at home. There are cold pressed juicers available to purchase, which are different from the centrifugal ones.
Yes, cold press juicers cost more than a regular one. But while a centrifugal juicer makes juice with a sped up, heated and oxidized process, which not only kills a good amount of nutrients that you should be consuming, it also contaminates the original content by oxidizing it. Cold pressed juice, on the other hand, works slowly, silently and extracts more juice without the pulp, without contaminating or losing anything the original fruit offers. So I say that is actually a profitable bargain.
This technique of juicing has been around for a long time but has only gained prominence recently. I see this as nothing but positive, that people are getting health conscious, and are looking into what they are consuming, and not just taking in everything with blind trust or ignorance. If you feel motivated to look around for cold pressed juice the next time you are out shopping, you are already a step closer to a healthier you!
