Now for one of my favorite topics, slow juicing and why it is so beneficial to your health. You may have heard more talk and seen many articles about making your own juices at home. This is certainly not new and has been happening since the 1940s or 1950s, especially in health-conscious American homes.
Although many of the new supply juices are about quick fix juices, preparing a liquid version of healthy food before you go to work is a bit different. Let's move on.
As you can see from the juices above, they are absolutely refreshing and thirst quenching on a warm summer day. More importantly, they give you a natural lift and support you more than any energy drink throughout the day!
So let's examine the fuss that people make about SLOW JUICING juices?
Why is slow juicing good?
Here are the reasons why slow juicing is so healthy for you compared to fast juices, using fast rotating blades:
# 1. More juice
With slow juicing, a screw mechanism is used to extract the juice. This means that you get more juice from the vegetables or fruit. Studies even indicate that you get 35% more juice if you do slow juice (cold compression juice extraction).
# 2. Natural Vitamins
When extracting juice with the slow compression method, do this at a cool temperature. This preserves all those healthy, natural enzymes and vitamins in the fruit or vegetable. Compare this with a fast rotor extraction that raises the temperature and kills some of the vitamins and enzymes.
# 3. Superior healing
The reason for drinking freshly prepared juices is primarily their super qualities in the fight against cancer, heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure, not to mention nausea, bloating, depression and morning sickness.
In general, fresh, slow juices drink a level of well-being that is not available when drinking processed or even organic fruit juices. When you prepare slow juices in your own kitchen, you know exactly what goes in and also who processes the fruit and vegetables!
# 4. Less is more
Slow juicers require fewer fruits and vegetables to prepare juices. This means that you save on the costs of fruits and vegetables that you use for a juice and minimize waste.
# 5. Greater fiber retention
As we all know, fiber is good for us and with the slow juice method we get more fiber in the prepared juice. This makes the juice healthier and healthier!
# 6. No foam
A clear liquid juice and less foamy foam! With cold, slow juice you get a completely foam-free juice, in some juicers you can even specify how many solids you want on your juice, none at all or minimal.
# 7. Longer
A slow juice can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 72 hours and then consumed. It will still be complete with all the good enzymes and vitamins that the juice originally had. This is not the case with fast juicers and other juice methods where the juice must be drunk immediately to prevent oxidation and loss of goodness in the juice.
So there you have it, the multiple reasons why slow juicing has become so popular with other forms of juicing. Add to this the added advantage that you can make a juice yourself as a midnight snack, because slow juices are usually much quieter than loud fast juicers.
Now for those of us who are night owls and sometimes only want a light meal such as a juice, this is perfect! Otherwise you disturb the cat, the neighbors and you leave everyone your secret of midnight juices behind, so much healthier than ice!
Regarding finding juice recipes, there are many online. However, you can make your own juices, have fun adding this and that.
One thing to remember as a guide, though, is that some vegetables have a very distinct, strong flavor that replaces fruit, so add a little banana and also Manuka (natural sweetener from nature and a medicinal food now used in medicine) to fruits and vegetables that make you juice.
