Unfortunately, there are no studies to support them.
Also, you want to remember that you can’t get all the nutrients for your body from only juices. Many vegetables and fruits don’t have protein or fat and majority of the fiber in the fruits and vegetables are removed in the process. If you consume several bottles of juice a day, calories level will increase but it will never offer the feel of fullness like consuming the whole fruits and vegetables.
In the cold-pressed juices, to fill the bottles with large quantities of liquid juices, a large amount of fruits or vegetables are required and this only adds calories to your body and not the fullness you get from the whole fruits.

If you want to add more fruits and vegetables to your food, it is good to consume as whole fruits or vegetables or you can drink fresh juices by preparing juices on your own at home.
