Vegus Juices are 100% raw cold-pressed, never heated and never frozen. They are preserved using ultra high pressure (HPP) that retains enzyme activity.
What’s so good about raw food?
The nutrients within foods can be more easily digested when the enzymes in those foods are still intact. In Vegus Juices the important nutrients are sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts juice and chlorophyll in wheatgrass juice.
All natural foods grow with enzymes and these enzymes help us digest the foods. Cooking and heating over 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit) denatures (destroys) these enzymes. The heat changes their structure and makes them inactive. That is why it’s helpful to include generous portions of salad and raw vegetables that contain enzymes with every meal.
Vegus Juices are never heated so that all of the enzyme activity is preserved. In fact, tests have shown that the enzyme activity is actually slightly increased by 3-4% after after HPP. This means that it is easier for the body to absorb the important sulforaphane and chlorophyll that are present in our raw juices. Note that heat-treated dry powdered extracts no longer contain active enzymes.
