The summer holidays are a great time to be thinking about getting healthy, as the warmer weather and more active lifestyle lead us to think about getting fit and losing weight. This is all about deciding to look after our bodies, and one of the very best ways we can do this is to ensure that our lifestyle ‘diet’ is rich in fruits and vegetables, and 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.
For most people leading very busy lives, buying and preparing a sufficient range of vegetables every day is nearly impossible 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 we can do for our bodies, as fresh juice provides us with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and much more and all of these factors are vital to maintaining good health.
In many ways this isn’t news to most of us, as 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. When we eat fruit and vegetables, much of their goodness is locked into the fibre and is lost to the body. When we juice fruit and vegetables their goodness is released from the fibre and we are able to drink their highly concentrated nutrients which will enter our bloodstream within minutes.
Juicing fruits and vegetables with an OSCAR juicer is the ideal way to start your summer health regime, and for more information on vegetable juicers, juicing machines, juicers Wellington and wheatgrass juicers please visit the website at http://www.oscarjuicers.co.nz
