Reasons to Juice and the Best Juicers

It’s said that around 80% of kitchen gadgets are never used. In fact you may well have been brought a kitchen gadget for Christmas that’s yet to see the light of day! It might be interesting to note that there might be one gadget lurking in the darkness of your larder that could well bring some health benefits to you and your family. A Juicer!

Juicing remains one of the best ways to get your 5 a day in a quick and easy manner – and it can be tasty too. Why take the time to juice?

Reasons to Juice

We get all the nutrients from the fruit and vegetables.

The stresses of modern life has resulted in many people not be able to maintain a balanced diet. Sadly this means that we are unable to digest fruit and veg as efficiently as we could and are unable to absorb all the nutrients.

By juicing, we assist our body in breaking down the food and therefore are able to benefit from the nutrients to a far greater degree. A wider Food Variety.

By experimenting with different combinations of fruit and veg, we are naturally rotating our food and are far less likely to develop an allergy to a specific food group.

Recent studies suggest that eating a high fibre diet can reduce the risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. It also makes us feel full quicker and thus reduces the risks of overeating.

So Juicing makes sense. But if we are going to start juicing and we don’t have a gadget in the back of a cupboard, what’s the best juicer to buy?
