School holidays are a great time to be thinking about your kids’ health, and introducing them to healthy eating habits to last a lifetime. At this time of the year kids are prone to winter colds and flu, so there is no better way to combat these than with fabulous fruit and vegetable juices, made with your OSCAR juicer.
For many years studies have shown that a diet high in fruits and vegetables, such as the Mediterranean diet, means that people will live longer with fewer diseases. However, most of us are generally too busy to be buying and preparing a sufficient range of fruit and vegetables every day, as it takes quite a bit of time, and that is where the idea of juicing comes in. Juicing is one of the healthiest things you can do for your kids, as fresh juice provides them with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and much more, and all of these factors are vital to maintaining good health.
When your children eat their fruit and vegetables, much of their goodness is locked into the fibre and is lost to the body. When you juice fruit and vegetables their goodness is released from the fibre and children are able to drink their highly concentrated nutrients which will enter their bloodstream within minutes. This is where the OSCAR juicer comes in and the concept of ‘living juice.’ Living juice was first introduced by Dr Norman Walker, who declared that the enzymes in fruit and vegetables die at temperatures which exceed 50 degrees Celsius. Walker maintained that any juice extractor which used a high speed blade or centrifuge created friction heat leading to the destruction of enzymes.
Normal speed juicers and blenders destroy large number of life-giving enzymes in the juice, by subjecting them to heat, metal cutting blades and high speed centrifugal rotation. Rotating at a low 80RPM the OSCAR DA1000 produces no heat and ensures a living juice, without any loss of enzymes of nutrients. The major benefits of living juice are that vital enzymes and nutrients remain intact and are utilised by the body within minutes.
Juicing fruits and vegetables with an OSCAR juicer is the ideal way to help your kids to get off to a good start for the holidays, so to find out more about, juicers, juicing recipes and vegetable juicers please visit the website at http://www.oscarjuicers.co.nz
