Whether you’re a cocktail lover or mocktail lover, we all need a little refresh on a hot summer's day! And what's better than knowing your glamorous drink has a little extra goodness to help your insides, like our Cold Pressed Juices!
But is juice actually healthy?
The science behind some of these practises is that nutrients in juice like minerals, vitamins, polyphenols and carotenoids are easily absorbed into the bloodstream as they do not need to be broken down. Making them readily available to our nutrient hungry bodys, some of these nutrients are potent antioxidants helping our insides detox and increasing our immunity. These biologically active components have also shown to improve gut health, with their prebiotic effects. Meaning they provide energy for the bacteria in our gut, studies have shown that this causes a change in our intestinal bacteria which is associated with weight loss, and decreases the risk of various diseases.
What's the deal with Cold-pressed?
The extraction of juice can alter the presence of biologically active nutrients, as they can be lost due to the harsh environments of processing. Cold Pressed juice is made with special machines that use a hydraulic press and a slow puliverser. This process protects and preserves nutrients from the fruit and vegetables, therefore the cold pressed juice is packed with all the goodness of its ingredients. Dineamic’s cold press juices contain a variety of fruit and vegetables, and cater to all tastes. With four awesome flavours, that contain no added nasties; Sunny Side Up, Jack Rose, Summer Greens and Ginger Ninja.
Get your hands on our cold pressed juices to help fill your body with goodies, and improve your overall health. Remember that juice needs to be consumed with a well balanced diet, and in moderation. This ensures you're getting all your dietary requirements, to be the fittest and healthiest you.
