Why Cold pressed?
Cold-press juicers are a much slower cold extraction and produce a vastly superior quality juice that doesn’t destroy the essential nutrients your body needs and will hold its nutrient value for up to 2-3 days.
The method used to extract the juice liquid from the whole fruit or vegetables is with a specialised juicer. The problem is not all juicers do the same job!
Fast juicers like the ones you find in most, if not all juice bars, are centrifugal which create heat and oxidisation destroying the living enzymes, vitamins and minerals from the raw food in the process. Most of the time the end result is a frothy, fructose ridden sludge with high amounts of pulp that doesn’t meet your body’s needs and have to be consumed pretty much as soon as they are made.
Our juices are slow, cold-pressed in small batches to maintain freshness and purity; this retains the maximum amount of enzymes, vitamins and flavour!
zero additives, zero preservatives & not pasteurised – your daily nutrition in a bottle delivered to your door!
Why should I cleanse?
Cleansing your body is good for many reasons. it helps give your digestive system to cleanse its self. By adding a cleanse with cold-pressed juices, you will inundate your body with nutrients and vitamins, which help in eliminating free radicals and toxins that cause cell damage. Cleansing can help you to feel more refreshed, have greater energy & stamina, increased mental clarity, better sleep patterns, healthy skin, hair and nails.
Don’t our bodies cleanse naturally?
When you start a juice cleanse you are aiding this natural process. Cleansing gives our bodies a break, and a chance to detoxify. Our liver, kidneys, lungs, blood & colon work hard to keep us healthy from refined sugars, caffeine, alcohol, processed foods, E numbers, environmental toxins and chemicals. The impact on our bodies is intense from bad eating habits, lack of intense exercise & sitting for long periods of time. Correlating in the body being over burdened, storing fat where most toxins are prevalent.
Do I need to be consuming extra fibre?
Cleansing reduces the bodies necessity to digest fibre giving your body a break. Your body burns energy while you absorb fibrous foods. This is why I recommend eating breakfast, as it helps with this process, having all day to make use of the extra energy.
How will I get my protein?
You will get your protein from the almond & cashew milk, green juices and the recommendations for breakfast.
Will I lose weight on a Cleanse?
Everyone’s body is different. The cleanse will help your body balance itself and should be viewed as an aid towards weight loss. There is no quick fix or short cuts! If you would like to lose weight diet and exercise are key.
You may experience weight loss on the cleanse. The benefits of cleansing will be seen and will help keep you motivated to stick to healthier eating habits.
Just be aware that binge cleansing is no better than binge dieting! If you want to cleanse and invigorate your body, diet and regular exercise are essential. One of the best forms of detoxing is by sweating. For women, I’ve added a link to Luke Hill, who does group and personal training in the Marbella area. Check Missfit at missfit.es
Who can do a Cleanse?
Most people! Cleanses can benefit the majority of adults. We are all busy and it’s hard to find time for ourselves, and our health can suffer because of it. We do not recommend a cleanse if you are pregnant, breast feeding, or those who suffer from certain medical conditions. Please consult your doctor if you are taking any type of medication or have specific health concerns or questions before starting your cleanse.
Why do you recommend breakfast?
If you prefer not have breakfast that’s entirely up to you. It’s your body, you know what’s right for you. I have found better results by adding breakfast to the cleanses. Your body needs energy to wake up & focus. Many people skip breakfast thinking a cup of coffee is enough. Juices are an edition to breakfast.
Will I feel hungry while on the cleanse?
Everyone is different, but you should expect to feel great on the cleanse! Our cleanses provides enough calories and the right amount of vitamins and nutrients to keep your body functioning at the right level. Experiencing cravings on your cleanse, can happen but you shouldn’t feel hungry or deprived.
Caffeine Withdrawal is no laughing matter?
Teas help with fending off caffeine withdrawal symptoms. If you regularly drink more than 2 cups of coffee a day, try reducing this a week before starting a cleanse to reduce these effects. Going cold turkey is not recommended. We will be posting a section on Coffee & Caffeine, Pros & Cons.
Can I exercise on a Cleanse?
While on a cleanse remember that your energy level might not be as high as usual. We recommend light, low impact exercise while cleansing, Yoga, Pilates, fast walking, etc. Your body will tell you if you are over doing it. Remember to keep hydrated!
Centrifugal Vs. Cold Pressed Juices
Most nutrients and enzymes are broken very rapidly by cetrifugal juicing. In most cases after 20 minutes or so the juices made by centrifugal juicers tend to be what I class as “dead.” With not much benefit to your body as the oxidization has killed any goodness left inside. You can tell the difference between the 2 ways of making the juice by how quickly they separate once made.
Over 65% of all nutrients and enzymes are absorbed into your body within 15 minutes when you drink cold press juice compared to around 18% when you eat raw fruits and vegetables.
