Unlike a centrifugal juicer, the cold-pressing technique generates no heat when it is extracting the juice, making sure that the enzymes and nutrients from the fruits and vegetables stay in tact. We also do not HPP, or high-pressure process, our juices. This is a form of pasteurization that also can alter the integrity of the juice. Cold pressing allows our juices to have a shelf life of a few days, and during this time the nutrient content and taste will remain as fresh as possible.

Yes. Juicing is not appropriate for everyone. For example, if you have diabetes or kidney disease, you may need to limit, or monitor your intake of certain nutrients such as carbohydrates, potassium or phosphorus, and adding certain fruits or vegetables may not be recommended. For example, fruits such as melon and banana are high in potassium, and someone with kidney disease may be instructed to avoid these foods. Also, a juice made of mostly fruits can be high in carbohydrates, and could cause a rise in blood sugar, which could be problematic, especially in diabetics. In addition, juicing may also be a source of considerable calories, depending on the size, and content of the juice you make. Consuming excess calories can lead to weight gain, which can increase risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Talk to your doctor, registered dietitian, or other healthcare professional to help you determine if juicing is a healthy option for you.

I agree with Emily, you lost all credibility with me the second you mentioned your own products or sponsored products. If you’re going to review something review it without bias or agenda and find REAL facts from places that actually hold credentials to back your opinion up. Only an idiot would read this and go “Hey, she really knows what she’s talking about and I wanna buy her stuff”. From what I see, the entire blog is your opinion, you read some crap online and gave your opinion, where are the actual facts? Looking at your sources and coming from the fitness and nutrition industry, I sure as hell am not taking my facts from places like Shape magazine, Cosmo or Teen Vogue. Come on! Get some REAL facts not some lame article written by some half-ass writer for a stupid magazine that rarely has no business writing it in the 1st place! Good to know you are getting kick-backs for all your sponsor ads and lying to people every bit as much as every celebrity or pretty girl endorsing ALL these products including yours.
Longitudinal prospective cohort studies conducted at Harvard showed an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes when fruit juice consumed. Comparatively, consuming whole fruits significantly reduced the risk, suggesting that juicing process may not be beneficial to prevent diabetes.[3] Similarly, consumption of whole apples helped lower cholesterol levels, while clear apple juice did not have such an effect.[4]

Here's proof that a cleanse can taste fantastic. Blueberries provide antioxidants to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals and contain quercetin, a pigment that may increase the number of enzymes in the liver. The banana's vitamin B6 helps recharge detoxifying enzymes throughout the body, and ground flaxseed or chia seeds supply additional fiber for healthy elimination (as well as brain-nourishing omega-3s).

Great blog Cassey! I think there are a lot of scams out there today with companies making wild claims just to take people’s money. Could you do a blog/video on your opinion of fitness supplements? They seem to be another one with lots of claims of everything from weight loss, to getting strong, and everything in between, and I’m wondering if any actually are helpful, or if they are a scam as well.
2. Include compounds that improve athletic performance. Do to the high nitrate content, beet juice can lead to significant improvements in performance. A study conducted at the University of Exerter’s School of Sports and Health Sciences measure the effects of beet juice on cycling endurance. In this study, a group of cyclists drank 500mL of beet juice for 6 days, while a control group was given a liquid containing almost no nitrates. The beet juice group was able to pedal for a full 16% longer than the control group and had significantly lower resting blood pressure after the consumption of the beet juice. In the realm of athletic competition, an improvement of 16% is quite impressive. Other examples of performance-enhancing compounds you can add to your juice include sea salt, powdered electrolytes, or marine phytoplankton.
The chlorophyll content of a food is a major indicator of the health attributes of any given plant based food.  Chlorophyll rich foods have a very deep green and are extraordinarily useful in building new blood cells and purifying the body from cancer and radiation. Chlorophyll also assists in wound healing, intestinal regularity, detoxification, and deodorization of the body (6, 7).
It’s a two-minute process and it makes busy mornings a million and one times easier. And not only is it super efficient, but making these “smoothie packs” eliminates almost all chances that you will waste expensive produce throughout the week. Freezing everything ensures that the produce stays fresh for months. You see, it’s really a win, win situation.

Cleanses sometimes involve fasting or near-fasting, and that can actually have benefits, unless you have medical conditions or do it for too long. There is ample research demonstrating the effect of fasting on longevity; how fasting promotes autophagy, reduces mitochondrial oxidative stress, general decrease in signals associated with aging, and the potential to prevent and treat chronic illness, at least on some level. "Intermittent fasting" may be a viable option for those otherwise looking at specific cleanse diets. You basically limit eating to a few hours a day (typically around 8). That is a simple and sustainable way of eating, and doesn't involve buying cleanse products.

I like freezing peeled bananas because I love the creamy, milkshake texture frozen bananas add, plus making it extra cold without adding ice if I haven’t “made” any cubes. 🙂 So ironic, I was literally just reading blendtec reviews on amazon. For those who don’t have a powerful blender (like myself…yet 😉 ) I just blend the spinach with the milk first so that there are not pieces of leaves, then I add my other ingredients like frozen banana and PB.
Made this smoothie today for the first time and it is DELICIOUS! Mine didn’t turn out as light green pretty as yours though – its the color of split pea soup … but I can taste the fruit (especially the orange) through the spinach. Love that is it is healthy and tasty, especially using the spinach. Thanks so much for sharing this great smoothie recipe! Love smoothies!
Insoluble fiber is the left-over pulp after juicing. Only a small amount of this makes it to your juice. If you were to mix insoluble fiber in a glass of water, it would sink to the bottom, absorb the water and puff up. If you imagine that moving through your body, you can picture what it does for you. It's beneficial to help get things 'moving' and prevents constipation.
I should note, using a high powered blender (like a blendtec or ninja) helps blend all the spinach leaves. I’ve seen Blendtec do demos in Costco and have always thought they looked amazing! I did think the price tag was a little high though. However now after using one for a few weeks, I’m sold! This blender is worth every penny! It creates the most smooth and delicious drinks! I was amazed that I couldn’t taste the texture of the spinach in the smoothie. Usually mine gets clumps. This time around my kids had no idea what was in there. ;) I can’t wait to play with it some more.
