Vegus Juices are made from cold-pressed juice and are completely raw. They are never heated and never frozen. They are preserved using ultra high pressure, known as HPP, to preserve all the nutrients and enzymes so you get to enjoy all the benefits of raw, freshly-squeezed juice whenever you want.
What’s 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.
Why are Enzymes Important?
Enzymes are important because they help break down the food you eat into usable components. This means that the body does not have to produce these in order to perform the digestive function.
Cooking and heating over 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit) denatures (destroys) these enzymes. The heat changes their structure and makes them inactive. Because most enzymes occurring naturally in food are killed off during processing or cooking, the body lacks the tools to breakdown heated or freeze dried foods properly. This means that instead of being fully digested, the food it is processed in the gut by fermentation with sugars. This leads to indigestion, bloating and constipation. Worst of all the body doesn’t get the food values it needs. When eating food that still has enzymes present, your food is properly digested so you are able to assimilate all the goodness out of the food your body will feel more satisfied, leaving you less likely crave unhealthy foods.
Vegus Juices are Raw
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 1-3% 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.
Enzymes Make a Difference
Have you ever wondered why people who eat raw food look so young and healthy? It’s because they’re eating foods loaded with nutrients and the enzymes in those foods enable them to digest all the nutrients.
Give your body a head start and make sure you include generous portions of salad, raw vegetables or a raw Vegus Juice with every meal.
