How to Get the Benefits of Wine without the Alcohol

Alright! This is John Kohler with!
Today we have another exciting episode for you. And in this episode what I’m going
to do for you guys is actually share with you guys how to get the benefits of wine without
the alcohol. So you’re going to definitely want to pay attention to this episode if you
want to get some of the benefits of wine without the alcohol. Or you’ve heard there’s like
lots of benefits to wine and you’re considering drinking it, but you don’t really do alcohol,
like I don’t do alcohol, but you want to get the benefits. There’s so many benefits
of wine. It’s actually kind of insane why it’s so good for you. And actually later in this episode we’re
going to get into like how to maximize the benefits of wine and other foods that you
may be eating. But it’s also common in common mainstream media these days to make something
that’s really not so great for you like alcohol, which causes DWI’s and belligerence
and fights. I mean, I’ve seen it all in my fraternity days in college. Anyways, things
that are not so good for you, mainstream media makes it out to be oh it’s so great because
drinking some wine could lower your incidences of heart disease for example, you know. It
could lower your incidences of the risks of colon cancer. It can slow your brain decline.
I mean there’s so many different benefits of the wine. And so then you drink it. Then
you’re like okay I’m getting the benefits. But then you’re getting buzzed, and you
might like the buzz. I’m not going to like debate liking the buzz, not liking the buzz.
You guys want to drink, hey drink. I choose not to drink but I want to get the benefits
of wine without the alcohol. So that’s why I’m making this video for you guys to share
with you guys how to get the benefits, okay. So let me go ahead and back up here. What
is wine made out of? It’s made out of grapes! And it’s made out of a special variety of
grapes. Did you know there are actually Cabernet Sauvignon varieties of grapes? There are Merlot
varieties of grapes. All the different names of the wines, that’s actually a kind of
grape. So what you really want to do is actually you want to get the grape that produces the
wine. And then you want to drink it. You want to drink the juice of the grape because that’s
what wine is. They take the grapes, they juice them with the juice presses or maybe in Italy
they actually stomp them with bare feet, I hope they don’t got no toe jams, and they
get all the juice out. And then they ferment it. And, you know, in the fermentation process
the yeasts basically convert the sugar to alcohol, burn off some of that, but then they
also leave, you know, a good percentage of the other constituents in the grapes. And
there’s a lot of things in the grapes, you know. Some of the things in the grapes are
obviously water, you know. The water content, structured living water. Also things like
vitamins and minerals, really great for us. Also things like vitamins, you know, vitamins
are super important. And people think like oh yeah vitamins, they’re really important.
Well there’s something even more important than vitamins and it’s the anti oxidants,
plant phytochemicals and phytonutrients. In wine there happens to be polyphenols. And
one of the ones that you may have heard about is resveratrol. And resveratrol, there’s
a lot of documented studies on resveratrol and how good it is for you And that’s why
wine is so good. It’s not because of the alcohol content. Actually there are studies
that have been published that show that if, I think they’re from like Barcelona, that
alcohol may dampen the effects of some of the benefits of wine, of the effects of the
wine, so in the resv-reservers- resveratrol, say that five times. So yeah, so we don’t
want the alcohol when you could get actually better effects without the alcohol. So that’s what I’m going to show you guys
today, how you guys could turn your grapes, whether they’re green grapes, red grapes,
I got some more green grapes, or purple grapes, into grape juice. And the grape juice has
the benefits of wine without the alcohol because that’s what wine is! And today what we’re
going to do, we’re going to go ahead and use the Omega VSJ843 slow juicer. Now, you
know, I’m all about maximizing the nutrition I get and maximizing the benefits of the foods
I eat. There’s many different kinds of juicers. There’s also blenders. You can surely take
the grapes and put them in a blender, make a blended smoothie, you know, to blend up
and break open the fibrous cell walls of the grapes to get the nutrition in you. You could
also take a high speed juicer such as the Breville Juice Fountain Juicer or other inexpensive
department store juicer that runs at a high speed, you know. Sometimes in excess of 10,000
rpm or revolutions per minute. It runs at a very fast speed. And what the high speed
blender does that, they most often also run in excess of 10,000 rpms, much like the high
speed juicers. They’re running very fast. And when the machine runs very fast what happens
is the machine introduces oxygen into the juice, or the blended smoothie in the case
when you’re using a blender. And the oxygen, what that does, it breaks down the beneficial
phytonutrients and phytochemicals, like the anti oxidant rich resveratrol and other nutrients
that are really important for us. For example, there’s a published study they
did by taking broccoli, putting it in a slow juicer, putting it in a high speed juicer
and putting it in a blender that runs at 10,000 rpms. And after they analyzed the broccoli,
whether it’s the juice or the blended mixture, for polyphenols, they found that the broccoli
that went through the slow juicer had higher levels of polyphenols than the blender or
the high speed juicer. Now furthermore, they took the results of
the broccoli going through the different types of juicers or the blender, and actually put
it in a petri dish with live active cancer cells like I think 6 different kinds. And
overall, there was a greater cancer reduction from the juice made in the slow juicer compared
to the high speed juicer or high speed blender. Why am I telling you this? I’m telling you
this because, you know, if you want to get the most benefits from the grapes, you want
to do it at a slow speed. And think about it. How is wine traditionally made? They don’t
use high speed blenders or, you know, juicers to extract the, the grape juice. They stomp
on it. That’s like really low speed. Or they use some kind of, you know, slow running,
you know, screw press or basically hydraulic press or pneumatic press to press out the
juice from the grapes. So it does it at very low speed. So it preserves, you know, a lot
of those polyphenols and anti oxidants and plant phytochemicals. So I want you guys to
get the maximum benefit if you guys are really serious about getting the benefits of the
grapes. Okay so that’s number one- use a slow juicer.
My favorite one for juicing grapes and other fruits at this time is the Omega VSJ843. I
have a really good juice video, that I’ll link down below if I remember, on juicing
fruits in the VSJ and why it is superior to other machines. It basically doesn’t really
clog up like other machines and also makes a really fine strained juice, puts very little
pulp in the juice. And it does amazing from grapes to pineapple to oranges to tangerines,
some of my favorite cactus fruit, cantaloupe, watermelon, honey dew melon, I mean, it does
it all. I’ve even juiced jackfruit, not that I recommend that. Some fruits like mangoes
or bananas aren’t really meant to be juiced because they’re too soft of a texture. But
nonetheless, if you want to juice a fruit, the VSJ is going to be one of the best options
aside from getting one of those hydraulic presses. It’s actually how they press, you
know, apple juice for making apple cider or, you know, processing the wine. So one, yeah, use a slow juicer. Number two,
make sure you get seeded grapes. This is super important and super critical, you know. Besides
just the, the coloring of the grape, and the deeper the color of the grape the more anti
oxidants and anti oxidant compounds there are in the grape itself. So I mean, like these
dark purple grapes have higher levels of anti oxidants than these light, light green grapes.
And this is in general, you know, but not always across the board with all fruits and
vegetables. So always try to select the darkest deepest richest color fruits and vegetables
to put in your body. I eat purple carrots, you know, instead of the orange carrots for
higher levels of anti oxidants. It’s these anti oxidants that help keep us young, right.
It’s like if you scratch your car, you live by the ocean, it’s going to rust and it’s
going to rust really fast. If you scratch your car and you live in Las Vegas, Nevada
where it’s arid and dry, barely rains, it’s basically never going to rust and it’s not
going to oxidize. Your cells are oxidizing each and every day. And you can prevent some
of this oxidation by eating high anti oxidant rich foods like fruits and vegetables, including
the grapes. Or you could speed up the oxidative damage by eating foods that cause it to happen
faster, such as processed foods and animal foods. So yeah, so anyways, in the seeds there are
additional anti-oxidants, one of which is known as pycnogenol and that’s another very
powerful anti oxidant. And depending on the juicer you’re using, some juicers will actually
crush up the grape seed and extract the nutri-, some of the nutrition out of that grape seed
and put it into the juice coming out of the machine. So crushing style machines, if you
have a good first step that’s actually grinding. This will do it . If you’re just pressing
whole grapes, you know, without grinding it first, that may not totally work. High speed
juicers tend to kick out the whole seed whole, so that’s not really going to do it, you
know. That’s why I like the single auger style machine. The VSJ is optimized to grinding
up, you know, soft seeds like grapes, to get the nutrition out and put it in your juice.
So that you could get all the benefits. And of course you always want to juice the
darkest color grapes. And I would encourage you guys, you know, as much as I’m juicing
just standard table grapes meant for eating today, I would encourage you guys to seek
out and find wine grape varieties. I mean, some of the best grapes I’ve ever tasted
are wine grapes. Because think about it, the reason why wine grapes taste so good and they’re
so delicate and intricate in flavor is because that juice becomes the wine and that’s why
the wine tastes different and tastes amazing. Like I wonder if they ever try to make wine
out of just table grapes, man. It would just taste like crap. And we’re, but we’re
fed table grapes all day long and you could barely find wine grapes to buy in the store,
which I think is incredibly sad. But yeah, when I make grape juice out of wine grapes,
it’s just simply amazing. Get the darkest color and get the seeded ones. And if you
guys want a real treat, look for cotton candy grapes and then juice those. I mean, it is,
it’s going to taste like it sounds, cotton candy grapes tastes like cotton candy. They’re
really like floral and sweet at the same time. And when you juice it, it’s going to blow
your mind. So yeah, those are my three tips so get the most benefits. Slow juicer, seeded
grapes, and darkest pigmented grapes. So I guess without further ado, let’s go
ahead and juice these grapes, show you guys how easy it is and how quiet it is in the
Omega VSJ843 Juicer. So to honor wine today we’re going to go ahead and juice into a
wine glass there. Put that right under the spout, turn this baby on, and we’re just
going to go ahead and take these grapes and just drop them in one at a time. And the reason
why I like this machine is because as fast as you could drop these grapes in there, is
as fast as the machine starts to juice it up. And as you guys could see, you know, we’re
getting the, the juice coming right out of the front of the machine. So I do not recommend actually juicing the
stems. And also inspect your grapes as you’re juicing. Sometimes there’s spider webs and
bugs and creatures in there. But I do not recommend juicing the stems because the stems
may get stuck and caught in the machine and clog it up. Now this machine runs at a low
and slow 43 revolutions per minute. It’s one of the slowest juicers on the entire planet.And
that’s why I like it because the slower a juicer runs, the least amount of oxidative
damage it’s going to do to the juice. Oh wow! Look at that! And I just juiced like
the whole bunch of grapes, and my glass is already full of the green grape juice. We’re
going to go ahead and close that guy off, here maybe we’ll get a little bit more in
there. Look at that! I mean, that took no time to get a nice glass of grape juice. So
we’re just going to go ahead and pour that into little glass. Look at that, look at that
nice clean consistency. There’s like no fiber or anything in this green grape juice. Alright! We’re going to go ahead and put
that down. And then next we’re going to go ahead and juice the red grapes. So, you
know, the red grapes, once again, you know, they are higher anti oxidant than the standard
green grapes. Once again, we just drop these guys in there. So, you know, drinking grape
juice has been shown to have many health benefits. And likewise I would believe that drinking
grape juice would have similar health benefits, such as promoting longevity, reducing your
heart attack risk, right. Slow your brain decline. This is very important, right, all
these things. Cuts your risk of colon cancer, cuts your risk of cataracts, lowers your risk
of stroke, reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes, lowers heart disease. It could reduce your
heart attack risks, and promote longevity. Now grapes are not the only food that can
confer some of these benefits on you. They are many documented researched studies on
many different plant foods that could help you do this. Grapes are just a plant food
with rich pigments and anti oxidants, and special plant phytonutrients and phytochemicals.
And every different plant food has these benefits. But what we need to do really is unlock the
fibrous cell walls to be able to get these benefits. And that’s I like the juicer.
Because as you guys could see, instantly, you know, we got another glass of the red
grape juice here. We’re going to go ahead and pour that. Look at that nice consistency
there. Very simple, very easy in the Omega VSJ843. Next we’re going to go ahead and juice the
black grapes. So as I was saying, you know, every different fruit and vegetable has different
levels of phytonutrients and phytochemicals in it. And the juicer literally breaks open
the fibrous cell walls to let all those phytochemicals, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals out,
so that our bodies could easily digest them. Because what people don’t know is that our
bodies can only digest foods that are in a liquid state. There’s little villi inside
our intestines that basically for a lack of a better word, suck out or draw the nutrition
out of the food or the liquids in your stomach. And they can’t extract things in fiber.
So if like you’re taking, you’re eating lettuce or kale, and you take two chews and
you swallow, your body is not going to be effective at getting the nutrition out of
that unless it’s well broken down, like if you chew your food into a mush, like I
like to do. But the juicer makes this whole process easier because if you think about
it, we are nothing more or less than juice extractors. We eat food like we could eat
these grapes like the Cleopatra times, but I need somebody fanning me while I’m eating
my grapes. We eat the food and we chew into a mush, which is like the machine running.
We swallow it and then out one side of us comes clear liquid because our body absorbs
all the nutrition in there, and out the other end of us comes the fiber. And that’s happening
here on the front of the machine the liquid’s coming out and on the side of the machine
all the fiber is coming out, so that you don’t have to, you know, worry about digesting it
or chewing your food well. I still do recommend, you know, chewing your juice to get the maximum
benefits and to mix it with your salivary amylase to help get the digestion going. But yeah, besides just the grapes, you know,
there’s plenty of other plant foods that contains beneficial phytonutrients. For example,
Japanese Knotweed, which is a weed in many parts of the country in the US and overseas.
But that also contains resveratrol. And besides just resveratrol, there are many other different
phytochemicals and phytonutrients such as isothiocyantes in the brassica family of plants.
For those of you guys that don’t know what brassica family of plants are, those are the
things like broccoli, kale, cabbage, cauliflower. These have been shown to be anti cancer, you
know, phytochemicals. The same thing in garlic and onion family of plants, that have flavonoids,
which is also anti cancer. And every different plant food has a whole spectrum of phytonutrients
and phytochemicals. But the juicer is what unlocks it. And that’s why I like juicing
so much. It really saves me a lot of time. I mean, I couldn’t just sit here and eat
like bunches of grapes. But if you juice this whole pile of grapes here, it will make a
delicious juice, like I’m making here. And then you’ll be able to easily drink the
juice. Let’s go ahead and pour this last one out
here to show you guys what it looks like. Nice consistency. Alright! Which one of these
juices do you want to drink? Do you want to drink the green, the purple or the red? I
mean, to me the one that looks the prettiest is the purple. So we’re going to go ahead
and drink that one first. Mmmm. I don’t drink but you know what? That reminds me of
drinking wine but it doesn’t have that like bitter, I don’t know whatever you call that
bitter bite. It’s like mildly sweet, not overly sweet, and delicious. Now some of you
guys might be thinking John, grape juice, man, that has a lot of sugar! Well you know
what? If you said that to me and you’re still drinking like coca cola or other sodas,
you know, those have way more sugar than my grape juice that I’m drinking today. So
put your money where your mouth is, right. The next thing I’d like to say is that I
always want to encourage you guys to do good, better, best, right. Yes, of course we can
drink, we can eat the grapes if you chewed them every mouthful into a mush. That’s
be great. Some people just don’t like to do that, they don’t have the time. And sometimes
frankly when you buy grapes at the store like I did, these happen to be organic grapes,
and you eat them, they, they’re not that sweet, they’re kind of flavorless and actually
they don’t taste too good. And I think that’s a whole another problem in itself. So I don’t
like to eat grapes a lot of times. But when you juice them, it really concentrates out
the flavor, removes all this fiber. And, you know, talking about the fiber, I’m going
to show you guys this. Look at that. That’s all the pulp that came out. We could grab
this pulp , we could put it in my hand right here, look at that. It reduced all the, all
those grapes into this. And I’m going to squeeze this as hard as I can. Alright! we’re
squeezing a few drops of juice. You guys see that? But man, this is, this juicer was very
efficient. Not as efficient as like a hydraulic press but it’s probably the most efficient
juicer that’s going to juice grapes really easily. Now I do recommend, you know, if you
had seeded grapes, it’d even work better because the hard seeds have some extra fiber
to help push the soft grape pulp through the machine. Alright, my mouth is watering. I got to finish
these grapes juices. So alright, now we’re going to go ahead and sample the red grape
juice here. Mmmm. The red grape juice actually is sweeter than the purple one. And finally
we’re going to go ahead and try that green grape juice. Yeah. This one’s my least favorite
of them all. So what have we learned today? We’ve learned
that fruits and vegetable have phytochemicals and phytonutrients, every different kind of
fruit and vegetable has different kinds. And they have many beneficial properties to you
guys. So we want to maximize, whether that’s grapes, apples, you know, oranges, cactus,
pears, kale, carrots, celery, cucumbers, butternut squash, we want to maximize the plant foods
and get them into us because not just focusing on grapes because, and wine because they’re
so good, every plant food is so good and you want to maximize the amount you could get
into you. The best way to do that I have found in all
these years I’ve been into a healthy lifestyle is by juicing. And more importantly, juicing
at a slow speed to maximize the phytonutrients and phytochemicals. When you do this, you’ll
get things like many of my customers have told me, you’ll lose weight, you’ll have
more mental clarity, you’ll feel better, you’ll have more energy. These are huge
in this day and age because you’re literally putting nature’s foods, God’s foods, whatever
you want to say, into you. And it’s really easy to start getting juices into you because
they taste so great, specially if you’re not into and hate your fruits and vegetables.
And I have a really good video on how to eat more vegetables if you hate them with some
of my special tips on how to juice them so that they taste good for you and your kids. So yeah, I mean, anyways, so I want to talk
real quick about the, you know, the sugar in the grape juice real fast, going back to
that real quick because I didn’t get to finish my thought. My thought is simply this,
you know, as much as there is some sugar in here, the grape juice that I made basically,
aside from the fiber here, has a lot of other nutrients. So there’s number one, living
structured water. This is huge, this is very important. I don’t recommend you guys drink
your tap water. Many places they put chloramine, chlorine, fluoride which is not good. That’s
why most people drink bottled water. But even better than bottled water is structured water.
The grape juice here, the water has been filtered by the grape plant through all the little
cellular structures of the grape vine. And then it filters it and then it stores it in
it’s little grape fruit. Yeah, not grapefruit but grape, which is a fruit or actually a
berry. And along, when the plant puts the water in
there, in a structured format, it also adds things like vitamins and minerals, right.
But more importantly the things like the phytochemicals and phytonutrients. These are the most important
things that you guys can be eating, that are not in soda. They just have the sugar with
very little minerals, very little vitamins if any, right. And, and actually a non-structured
water, right. That’s one of the worst things to put in. One of the best things is grape
juice, right. But eat your grapes! If you , you know, don’t want to drink juice, but
you know, what? I’m going to drink my grape juice and enjoy it because it’s one of the
healthiest things that I do. Mmmm. This stuff’s so delicious. Now here’s a tip. If you want like sparkling
grape juice, take a little bit of like sparking spring water and add like a little bit of
spring water to this, just enough to get a little bit bubbly. It’s gong to taste great.
That’s great for parties and all this kind of stuff. And in this way you could get more
health benefits from the grape juice that you’re drinking. The final thing I’d like to say is you are
going to take the time to make fresh grape juice like I have today, I want you guys to
get the maximum benefits from it. So you right after you make it, you want to start drinking
it and get it into you. You don’t want to like sit there and store it for like a couple
weeks, because actually it’s going to go bad. It’s actually going to start fermenting
into alcohol more than likely over time. So yeah, drink it right after you make it. And
if you do need to store it, fill it up in a, you know, sealed thermos or glass jar to
the brim so it’s almost overflowing, so you have no head space or no air space. Cap
it off. Put it in your fridge, keep it really cold until you’re going to drink it. And
I like to store my juices no more than 24 hours. Although, you know, many people store
their juices for up to 72 hours. But I always drink my juices, you know, for the most part,
unless there’s extenuating circumstances within 24 hours. but most of the time, 99%
of the time I drink the juice right after I make it. Like I’m going to be enjoying
all this grape juice right now. Mmmm. So delicious. You guys got to get one of these juicers to
make your own fresh grape juice. So you guys could get the benefits of grapes and all the
other delicious phytonutrients and phytochemical rich fruits and vegetables out there. If you guys enjoyed this episode, I would
encourage you to support me and my work which allows me to continue to make these educational
videos for you guys, by purchasing your juicer at This allows me to
make these videos that you guys are watching today. If you guys have supported me in the
past, I want to thank you for you guys’ support. And if you guys are going to support
me in the future, thank you in advance. It is much appreciated. I make many videos on
YouTube to educate the public about health because I almost lost my life when I was younger
and that’s why I’m so passionate about this subject, because we’re not taught this
in grade school, on really the power and the benefits of the fruits and vegetables. And
to really minimize or get rid of entirely things like processed foods and animal foods
in your diet, and maximize the fruits and vegetables in your diet and the Juicer is
the number one appliance that could do just that for you guys. The other thing I’d say if you guys liked
this episode, hey please give me a thumbs up. It will encourage me to make more episodes
like this. Also be sure to share this with a wine drinker you know that keeps telling
you oh I drink wine for the benefits. Well have them watch this video. They’ll know
they could get even more benefits without the alcoholic side effect or maybe a desired
effect depending on who you ask. So yeah, and then also be sure to check my past episodes.
