I love me a big glass of fresh fruit juice in the morning, but these days, it’s not just about your regular blended fruit juice anymore.. it’s no secret that cold pressed juices have been the talk of the town, piquing people’s interest in the suggested health benefits of raw juices with living enzymes that are said to help you thrive, detox and heal!
, a local homegrown brand sends over some of their best sellers and unique concoctions of cold pressed juices based on my given preferences of tangy and refreshing drinks. Promptly delivered to my doorstep in eco-friendly packaging, I’m extremely pleased to report that they were all rather delicious! Some more so than others, but on the whole, I’ll have to be frank and say that these were a lot tastier and palatable than other local cold pressed juice brands I’ve tried, perhaps due to their wide range of choices available which suited my liking.
Here’s some quick information on what all the cold pressed juice hype is about!
What Is Cold Pressed Juice?
The natural extract from raw fruits and vegetables is referred to as pressed juice. This requires a slow and careful process, using juice extractors under hygienic conditions in accordance with the highest regulatory standards. Instead of spinning fruits and vegetables madly on a blade to separate flesh and juice via centrifugal force, cold pressed juice extracts the juice hydraulically, by “pressing” instead of cutting.
The result is that the maximum amount of juice is extracted from the fruits and vegetables, but enzymes and nutrients living in the fruits and vegetables remain protected. That means getting maximum benefits from a single cup of cold pressed juice. The end product is a juice with a high nutritional value with no artificial preservatives and sugar added. The benefits we stand to derive from this is enormous as this is a very convenient way of getting all the nutritional requirements of the body, leading to a healthy lifestyle. Cold pressed juices are widely considered to be the most nutritionally complete juice, containing 3 to 5 times more vitamins, minerals, and enzymes than juice extracted via traditional methods.
With over 32 different blends of cold pressed juices made from a combination of fruits and vegetables, Elixir Juice is your go-to for your daily pick-me-up. Don’t get used to the idea of this large a selection, it’s something you won’t easily find elsewhere.
They’ve got specific categories to cater to individual needs, such as “Weight Shifter” for the ladies, “Iron Man” for males and “Wit Sharpener” for the little ones! Instead of focusing primarily on “juice cleanses”, a diet fad that’s been all the rage recently which allows you only to consume cold pressed juices in replacement of your meals, Elixir Juice strives to introduce cold pressed juices into your everyday lifestyle for long term health benefits.
Let’s face it: the proposal of a several day juice cleanse sounds daunting and IS difficult for the average person. I have personally tried doing a 3-day cold pressed juice cleanse program before (twice actually, from two separate brands) and as much as I’d like to say I succeeded with great results.. let’s just say.. they didn’t end well. I couldn’t bring myself to not eat solid food at all for 3 whole whopping days, especially when I did not find most of the juices to be nice tasting in the slightest. I have no doubt in my mind that they were super healthy and good for my system, but I almost gagged after taking a sip or two, and finishing the entire bottle was out of the question. I guess a few were sort of okay-tasting, but it wasn’t my cup of juice. I failed the juice cleanse program by binge eating and giving it up halfway, which was kinda horrible, especially when the programs aren’t cheap. I’ve been put off juice cleanse programs ever since.
But if we turn the tables around, and you told me I could pick nice tasting juices that were wonderful not just for my well-being but to my taste buds as well, and that I wouldn’t have to force down 6 whole bottles in a day as meal replacements.. well then, Elixir Juice has got a formula that really works for me. They make healthy living and eating that much easier. I like variety, and having a say in when and how I drink it. I hate having to feel like I’m not committed to my health just because I can’t stand pure green juices. And as much as I like a good cup of juice, having to consume 6 whole bottles in less than 24 hours is just…. not my idea of fun. It’s my body and choice after all, shouldn’t the journey to better health be an enjoyable one? It ought to be a guilt-free process!
My bottles of Elixir Juices as seen:
Defensive Potion- Defensive portion is a smooth blend of Pineapple, Mango, Orange, Lime and strawberries. It is rich in Vitamins A, C, E and K, combining the benefits of lime which is known to combat aging and astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat which are anti-oxidants that fight against colon and breast cancer. By far my favorite juice from the lot, and something delicious enough for me to want to order in a restaurant as a smoothie. I love it!!! It’s very tangy, and the main flavors I picked up from this was mango, orange and lime. I could have a whole bottle of this every day!
Power Glow – A blend of Apple, Raw Beetroot, carrot and Celery, rich in Vitamin A and lots of antioxidants that are sure to protect your skin from harsh ultra violet rays that damages the skin. It also prevents dryness, acne and uneven tone of the skin. I can’t stand celery, so this wouldn’t be my top pick… having said that, I’d still take this over a fully green juice any day, though.
Breakfast Fruit Buffet – Packed with the rich benefits of Blueberries, Oranges, Lime and Banana. Blueberries are known to contain more antioxidants than any other fresh fruits. This neutralizes free radicals which are introduced into the body through exposure to smoke, toxins and pesticides, thereby boosting the immune system. With a strong banana taste, I can tell why they call this the breakfast buffet! Pleasant and easy to drink, no problem.
100% Pure Pomegranate Juice - Many studies show that the pomegranate is one of the most powerful, nutrient dense foods for overall good health. It aids in: slowing aging, immune system supporting, the flow of blood circulation, bone health, protecting and your skin and cells regeneration. Can you believe I’ve never tried pomegranate juice prior to this bottle? It’s sweet and has a slight berry-like flavor, which will appeal to most people.
Since you can keep these cold pressed juices in the fridge for up to 72 hours, you can enjoy sharing the goodness with your family or have two juices a day to yourself to maximize the effects!
Sometimes I use a nice cold juice to supplement meals when I’m in a rush, feeling bloated, not that hungry or whenever I need a pick-me-up to give me a boost of energy. Pop it into my bag before I leave the house, and drink on the go! It’s also a great snack to replace the sweet cravings I have for cakes, biscuits and other artificially sugared food items.
I’m not the most adventurous person when it comes to trying new vegetables or fruits, I stick to my favorites – strawberries, mangoes, oranges, coconuts, grapes and apples. Anything else beyond that list is considered mildly foreign to me, and my usual intake definitely doesn’t meet the recommended nutritional requirements. Elixir Juice can fix that problem with a bottle or two a day, and introduce various kinds of fruits and veggies I wouldn’t normally eat, resulting in a much more balanced diet.
Just for my readers, you can start on your cold pressed journey with the code “healthyliving” - with every pack of 6 juices ordered, you get 1 juice for free! I promise that you will never look at the artificial bottled or canned stuff the same way ever again, because cold pressed juices honestly look, taste and feel so much better.
