There are a few things as healthy as a freshly squeezed juice. Fresh juice not only contains great nutritional value, it contains life. It's a natural drink filled with living enzymes, vitamins, essential minerals, antioxidants, natural antibiotics, fiber and phytonutrients which are vital for optimal health. When you drink juice, highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes rapidly enter your bloodstream, absorbing all of the nutritional benefits of the fruits and vegetables and give your digestive organs a much-needed rest.

On the other hand, if you don't (or someone in your family doesn't) enjoy eating fresh fruits and vegetables, juicing may be a fun way to add them to your diet. It also enables you to try fruits and vegetables you normally wouldn't eat. Juices are the easiest and fastest methods to enrich your body with nutrition.

Fruits and vegetable juices are known to:-

Boost Immunity- preventing infections and other chronic diseases

Promote Lung Health- making lungs stronger. Effective in prevention of asthma attacks and countering the bad effects of smoking and pollution

Cleanse Liver - flushing out toxins and waste products from the body maintaining the body pH levels. When our bodies are at the proper acid/alkaline balance, we can combat and defeat any invader, correct any imbalance, roll with all the punches

Promote Kidney Health - treat kidney stones. Diuretic and stimulate kidney function while getting rid of excess fluid

Improve Heart Health - reduce cholesterol levels, maintain good blood flow, prevent the hardening of arteries and naturally lower blood pressure

Prevent Cancer - one of the most famous health benefits of juicing is its powerful ability to lower your overall risk of contracting cancer. This is due to the immense amounts of antioxidants found in raw fruits and vegetables. You won't find these nutrients in many things except plants.

Energize- provide relief from fatigue, stress, anxiety, muscle soreness and aids in heart rate recovery in athletes. With very little energy needed for digestion, guess what happens to your energy. It EXPLODES

Improve Cognitive Health – increasing blood flow to brain. Certain antioxidants help in fighting neurotransmitter acetylcholine decline responsible for memory loss Improve Digestion - beneficial in smooth functioning of the digestive system

Make Bones and Teeth Stronger- healthy nutrients such as calcium, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, boron etc. combine to make bone structure healthy and strong Improve Vision - vitamin, C, beta carotenes and other antioxidants help in improving the vision and preventing eye disorders

The antioxidants keep the skin elastic while protecting it from the sun and fight wrinkles & other skin problems such as inflammation, itching, cracked skin, pimples, acne etc.

Slow Ageing – by stopping free radical damage

Improve Metabolism – Juices' diuretic action helps to eliminate excess fluids from the body and juices inhibit the accumulation of fat in fat cells. Also remove the toxic and extraneous matter that have been stored within fat cells

Prevent Diabetes- contain antioxidants and phytochemicals which lower glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity

The hundreds of health benefits of juicing, would make this page as long as a book… you get the idea…


Understanding cold pressed juice

Most juices are produced by a centrifugal extraction process or by pulping and boiling. Both these methods impart heat to the juice, resulting in a substantial loss of nutrients.

On the other hand, in cold pressed technology, there is no heat, high RPM friction or static electricity and therefore, no oxidation of the juice. It also means that the cellular structure of the raw fruits and vegetables remains undamaged and their nutrients remain remarkably live and intact. It is thus able to extract and preserve maximal amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients & other vital elements.

You are in turn able to get:-

  • 100% natural juice which remains fresh for 3 days
  • More nutrients per bottle of juice
  • More flavour and taste in every bottle

At Sattwa, we prepare our juice just before crack of dawn every morning to deliver it to you – as fresh, as healthy, as hygienic and as convenient as it can get.

The long aisle of "fruit based beverages" available in the market

Try reading the label on the long aisle of juices available in the market. A lot of them do a convenient dance between calling themselves "juices" and "fruit based beverages" depending on the context.

You will also find a long list of ingredients which should ideally have nothing to do with juices- fruit concentrate, water, added sugar, stabilizers, preservatives, taste enhancers and food dyes (artificial and natural colorings). Some brands also add synthetic fiber to give it a natural texture. Technically, you could make water taste like juice with a few additives thrown in!

Needless to say, there is little benefit and more harm done by these beverages and the list of artificial ingredients they contain. Sattwa cold pressed juices do not contain any artificial additives and are made of only fruits, vegetables and herbs.

The truth about the 100% juice that you buy in the market

The 100% juice that you typically buy on the supermarket shelves are produced by a centrifugal extraction process or by pulping and boiling. This heating treatment has been shown to destroy a lot of the nutritional value of the ingredients along with the naturally occurring enzymes and phytonutrients in the fruits. It also changes its pH from alkaline to acidic. The primary purpose of this processing is to extend the fruit juice's shelf life.

Well yes, you will be drinking a juice which was pulped months (if not years) ago, all life and active enzymes having long gone from it along with a lot of its goodness. Sattwa cold pressed juices are pressed in the wee hours of the morning and delivered fresh at your doorstep the same day.

Juices that are "cold-pressured" and not just "cold pressed"

Some cold-pressed juice brands further process their juices using a "cold-pressure" technology called HPP (High Pressure Pasteurization) to increase the shelf life of their products.

Similar to standard pasteurization methods that use heat, HPP neutralizes molecules that cause juices to spoil faster. HPP neutralizes the benefits of some of the live enzymes, probiotics, vitamins, proteins, and nutrients that would otherwise be retained in raw and unpasteurized juice. While this allows HPP-treated juice to last up to 45 days, it off-course reduces the goodness level of its juices significantly.

Sattwa cold pressed juices do not use any high pressure and are delivered to you raw, just like juices should be!

How about road side vendors

First, they use centrifugal juicer which means lesser nutrition. Second, and more importantly, as most of us have realized, it's tough to ensure the right hygiene levels on the road side with sugar, unfiltered water and ice added intentionally and dust and other pollutants added unintentionally. Contaminated and adulterated juices cause diseases such as diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid, jaundice, tooth decay, diabetes, obesity etc. and an endless list of other ailments.

Sattwa cold pressed juices maintain the highest level of industry standards on hygiene and are produced only in FSSAI certified locations.

Home juicing

Juicing at home is clearly better than buying from roadside vendors or the standard affair available in the supermarkets. However there are still certain drawbacks to it. Think buying variety of fruit, vegetable and herbs! Think washing, peeling, and cutting, juicing and cleaning! Think of doing that every day! The process is so messy and time-consuming that most of us just end up not doing it.

Moreover the price at which you buy our juices is about the same cost which you will incur if you were to make those juices at home - both because of a higher retail price of fruits and vegetables and lower yields of the home based juicers.

At Sattwa, we have designed our juices and menu to provide you absolutely nutrition like a magic at price which is the same as the cost you would incur if you were producing these juices at home yourself (without the added tension of course)!
