Slow juicing

Slow juicing has become my new favourite morning healthy thing!

What is it exactly?

A slow juice  – raw juice – is made from a slow juicer , also called cold-press juicer or masticating juicer. A screw mechanism is used to extract the juice at a cool temperature, slowly. The fast juicer, on the contrary, raises the temperature and kills most of the nutrients and(digestive and anti-inflammatory) enzymes.

What are the benefits?

Let me put it this way: Drinking a juice is like taking a shot of nutrition goodness. Fresh fruits, raw vegetables and herbs contain an abundance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, carbohydrates, anti-oxidants and enzymes that are essential for good health. (Slow-) juicing helps to break down those valuable nutrients so our body can better absorb them. You also get more of the healthy and valuable fibres.

Slow juices have super duper powers! They help fight high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, skin disorders, and so on. Fresh extracted juices also help cleanse the liver and kidneys, they flush the body of the bad toxins, and clean the intestines. They are also an amazing energy and mood booster, they can really help people suffering from anxiety, stress and depression.

Here is another good reason to drink slow juices. When I was a kid, my parents would make fresh orange and lemon juice every morning, and I can still hear my mom saying : drink fast, all the vitamins are going to fly off! Well, if you use a slow juicer, your can store the juices in the fridge for about 72 hours without losing any of the enzymes and vitamins. How flipping great is that?

Last but not least, if you use a slow juicer  you get more juice out of the fruits or vegetables than with a regular fast juicer; which is good for your wallet – and that’s not insignificant.


My kitchen has become a real juicing lab. Every day I create new colourful and super healthy juices. Just seeing the juice getting out of the machine is unbelievable; what a beetroot can do, it is magical! My juicer has become my favourite kitchen device, I would take it with me everywhere if I could!
