What is the benefit of cold-pressed juice?

Cold-pressing is the process of extracting nutrient dense juice from fresh greens, veggies and fruits by using pressing, either with gears or hydraulic press. It is called cold-pressing because no heat is emitted during the extraction process. Food processors, blenders and centrifugal juicers do emit heat which threatens the live enzymes so valuable in juice. The cold press juicer extracts the juice while generating a lower level of oxidation thus keeping vital enzymes, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals intact and ready to flow straight into the body. Heating and oxidation change the color, chemical structure, enzymes, and flavor of the juice. Outside of the obvious health benefits, this dense nutrient profile and low level of oxidation in cold-pressed juice translates directly to superior flavor: they taste crisper, cleaner and fresher than any other type of juice. This process also allows the juice to stay fresher longer, holding onto much more of its nutrient-packed treasures over time. Cold-pressed juices are bright in color for a reason. So, while juice made with centrifugal juicers and high rpm blenders should be consumed immediately, cold pressed juice has a longer shelf life. Although we always recommend drinking as soon as possible, our juices can be stored in the fridge up to 3-4 days. The liquids and particles will naturally separate while sitting in the bottle. This is normal separation and perfectly fine. Shake well before drinking.
