Fresh juices of fruits and vegetables have an undisputed repo of being super healthy because they are concentrated with a number of valuable and beneficial nutrients. Vitamins are in excess which are very important for a human body. They are also rich in proteins and have traces of carbohydrates which are all necessary to help you maintain a healthy body. Then there are some beneficial enzymes which add to the nutritional value since they have a healthy effect in our system.
Fresh juices are very effective at detoxification and thoroughly cleaning your digestive system and in fact even fix your bowel movement for cases such as diarrhoea and constipation. Orange juices are famous for strengthening you immune system.
A layperson believes that these nutrient rich juices are entirely dependent on the fruits and their freshness and have nothing to do with the best juicers. But actually the type of juicer has a big role to play in this context too. Many of the nutrients and beneficial enzymes get wasted and destroyed while juicing and a layman doesn’t even know about it. The phenomenon is more common in the old traditional centrifugal juicers where the cutting and shredding action of the blades revolving at high speed does the juicing. What happens is that these blades due to high rev per minute, shed the fruit into small pieces which get exposed to air immediately. Moreover, heat is also generated when these blades pierce through the fruit. A combined action of these two phenomenon cause rapid and sudden oxidation of the fruit pieces which are pulp and juice to be precise. The juice rapidly oxidizes and that kills the beneficial enzymes and useful nutrients. So the very purpose of drinking a fresh juice is questionable.
In cold press juicers, however this phenomenon is greatly reduced because of absence of heat generated by the blades as well as the absence of shredding action of the blades since this juicer works on the phenomenon of chewing action. So the juice quality and nutrients are remained intact in juices made from cold press juicers. Studies have shown that the cold press juicers extract up to 43% more of vitamin C than the centrifugal juicers. Similarly cold press juicers extract also up to 60% more vitamin A than the centrifugal juicers. The stats clearly indicate that the nutrition value of juices made by cold press juicers is higher than that of cold press juicers.
