Surely you’ve heard the hype surrounding cold-pressed juice which has been on a steady rise for years. You can find it in practically every town in America in grocery stores, small juice bars, and upscale restaurants. But, what makes this decades-old health craze so revolutionary? Why are loads of people turning to juice to serve dietary needs?
Cold-pressing is a well-known process which functions to extract the full liquid content of any given ingredient. It is the best way to ensure you are getting every last drop from that bunch of kale or handful of oranges. What makes cold-pressing different from your classic at-home juicer is the escape of heat in the juicing process. Heat can denature precious enzymes from the fresh ingredients and consequently drain vital nutrients. Thus, cold pressing creates a juice which retains almost all of the great nutrients, like vitamins and minerals, the ingredients have to offer.
Benefits of Cold-Pressed
You may be thinking, “Why should I drink juice when I can just eat the fruits and vegetables instead?” The consumption of juice offers a method of intake in which your body is able to absorb various vital nutrients without exerting the energy required to digest and process the large amounts of fiber in those ingredients. This means you get that wonderful kick of energy instantaneously when drinking nutrient dense cold-pressed juices. Juices also offer a way to add nutrients to your diet that you may be lacking in a quick and effective on-the-go solution.
