Optimum is proud to present the first-of-its-kind Big Mouth Cold Press Horizontal Juicer. Like its vertical juicer predecessor, the bigger feeding chute enables you to save the hassle in food preparation, juicing whole fruits in an easy, quiet (less than 64dB) and nutritious way with its sleek touch panel controls.
The Optimum H3000 is also extremely easy to assemble, disassemble and clean, using our specially designed cleaning brush provided. We have also included a drying shelf so you can dry your juicer more efficiently for its next use.
Its high quality ceramic juicing screw ensures you get the maximum juices out of the toughest ingredients, while our strainer is made of the most durable stainless steel and PC to ensure you get the best juicing results every time.
With the Optimum H3000, you will enjoy all the amazing nutrients fresh from your ingredients and taste the pure goodness of the healthiest juices right at home
Horizontal juicers work best for leafy vegetables as they usually have a narrower strainer, diminishing the occurrence of air pockets when juicing to provide an even more efficient extraction.
Another key feature which allows you to extract more juice through a horizontal juicer is its adjustable end cap. The end cap places greater backpressure on the pulp than traditional juicers, enabling the horizontal juicer to be up to 12% - 15% more efficient in juicing greens.
If you want to juice wheatgrass (an extremely nutritious but notoriously tough ingredient to juice), a horizontal juicer would be the perfect choice as it does not tend to foam and allows you to extract the maximum juices.
Traditional centrifugal juicers tear through and shred ingredients, making them great for harder and denser ingredients, but ineffective at juicing leafy greens. The centrifugal juicer’s spinning disc often spins at high speeds, generating heat during the process which lowers the quality of the juice and results in separation, losing the important nutrients and enzymes to the pulp.
Horizontal juicers on the other hand, are the first cold press or masticating juicers specially designed to extract the maximum nutrients, enzymes and juices out of greens and fruits. They rotate at much slower speeds to crush and squeeze ingredients, producing virtually no heat throughout the process. This produces the highest quality juices where no separation occurs and the maximum juices and nutrients are extracted to ensure you end up with a drier pulp. What’s more, they are also easy to clean and can double up as a multi-purpose food processor.
Ensure Maximum Nutrient Absorption
Juicing helps you absorb all the nutrients from vegetables. Most of us have an impaired digestion from making less-than-optimal food choices over the years, limiting our body's ability to absorb all the nutrients from eating vegetables whole. Juicing helps to ‘pre-digest’ them for you, so you will receive most of the nutrition, rather than having it pass out of your system as waste.
Promote Weight Loss
Studies have shown adults who drank at least 240ml of vegetable juice as part of their daily diet lost almost 2kg over 12 weeks, while those who followed the same diet but did not drink the green juice lost only less than 500g. Adults who have been juicing also significantly increased their intake of vitamin C and potassium, and decreased their overall carbohydrate intake.
Increase Variety of Phytonutrients Intake
Many people are guilty of only eating the same vegetables, increasing the chances of developing an allergy to a certain food, while limiting the types of phytochemicals in your diet. Each vegetable has its own unique benefits. With juicing, you can ingest a wide variety of vegetables, including those you may not enjoy eating whole.
Support Brain Health
According to the Kame Project, people who drank green juices more than three times per week were 76% less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease than people who juice less than once a week.
Increase Daily Vegetable Intake
Juicing allows you to consume more vegetables in an efficient way. Few manage the recommended daily intake of 6-8 servings of vegetables and fruits. Juicing is the easiest way to guarantee you achieve your target vegetable intake daily.
When your body is in abundance of the nutrients it requires and maintains an optimally balanced pH, you feel energised. Since juicing allows your body to absorb the nutrients almost instantaneously, people who juice regularly have described feeling the ‘kick’ of energy almost immediately after consuming their green juices.
