Health Benefits of Cold Press Juicing

Cold pressed juices have risen to popularity in the juicing industry mainly due to dietitians claims that cold press juices are healthier than regular juices. Before getting into the health benefits of cold pressed juices, we must first understand what cold pressed juice is and how it differs from its predecessor. Cold pressed juice is essentially juice that has been extracted from fruits via a hydraulic press or the metal augers found in cold press juicers. Cold pressed juicing crushes and squeezes fruit to tear away their cell membranes and fibers. This process of juicing is inherently different from centrifugal juicing in which juice is extracted by slicing fruit pieces between spinning metal blades.

Now that we have understood the extraction of both cold pressed and sliced juices, let us understand how they differ in quality due to the nature of their extraction processes what accounts for the health benefits associated with them.

Detoxification

Of course juices are great cleansers of the toxins built up inside our bodies. Cold pressed juices, however, are even better at detoxification. They are packed with extra nutrients in the form of natural enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants which help the body to regain its immune system and eliminate environmental toxins like smoke and smog, and even purposeful toxins from alcohol and junk food which we mindlessly consume.

Energizing

Cold pressed juices are easy to digest with their fibers and nutrients readily available to the body without it having to work on breaking them which makes cold pressed juices an instant source of energy for the body. The nutrients in them are easily absorbed and this is why you feel a surge of energy and more awake than you started when having a glass of juice.

The vitamins in cold pressed juice help to maintain and repair tissue in your skin which helps prevent and reduce wrinkles and maintain a healthy, youthful looking skin. Vitamins A and C found in most fruit juices helps to clear the skin and maintain and even-looking skin tone. They are also responsible for clearing the blood and eliminating toxins.

Weight Loss

Although researched upon, observed, and claimed by many, the weight loss benefits of cold press juicing have never been officially proven. However, many consumers of cold pressed juice note that it does an insanely fast job at reducing weight when combined with a diet plan.

All in all, having cold pressed juice has many health benefits including reducing headaches and migraines, tackling fatigue, clearing acne, healing bloating, and even treating eczema. Drank regularly, these beacons of nutrients will clear your body of toxins and revitalize its immune system.

Gas Grills vs. Charcoal BBQ Grills

Since ages there has been a debate about which type of barbeque grill is better, whether charcoal or gas. This debate has started from the time since the first barbeque grill got introduced in the market, this certainly means many years back from now.

There are many differences between gas and charcoal grills. The first difference is that a gas grill can be set up very quickly as compared to charcoal grill which requires effort to light up and you have to wait for the charcoals to get ashy. The second difference is that using gas grills wouldn’t create any mess, while dealing with charcoal would get you all dirty. In contrast, barbeque grill gets you a smoky aroma that a gas grill wouldn’t. So you will have to decide which factor holds more importance to you when deciding which type of grill to buy. If you are looking for a grill with more convenience then you must go for a gas grill whereas if you want a grill that gives you cooked food the perfect barbeque aroma then go for a charcoal grill.

The gas used in gas grills is stored in tanks or bottles and it can be used at places where gas supply is not available, making the gas grill portable. All you have to do is connect the tank to the grill using the provided equipment, and the grill is ready to be used. Now just open the vent and switch on the burners to set the required temperature.

Don’t forget to take safety measures while using a gas barbeque grill; don’t lean over the grate and never try to use it as a heater to keep you warm.

It is not very difficult to maintain your gas grill if you want it to work at its maximum efficiency, just clean the grilling panel and remove the accumulated fat from the bottom of the tray. See, that’s not really hard to do, isn’t it?

The sizes of both, gas and charcoal grills varies. From small portable grills to some serious aggregates, you can find them all in the market. The small sized grills work for outdoor barbeques while others are made to prepare food for a big crowd. The stationary grill comes with its own advantages, the space beneath the grill serves as a store, and you could keep the gas tanks or the plates and glasses in it for use when needed. Furthermore, this type of grill includes three main burners, each with different setting of low, medium and high. These different levels of temperature settings give you higher level of control in the process of cooking.
