Earlier this month I was lucky enough to upgrade my juicer to the new Kuvings whole fruit juicer.
I love the quality of a slow pressed juicer because it extracts maximum liquid and nutrients from your fruits and veggies. I also use my juicer to make nut milk, Yum!
What is the difference between cheap and more expensive juicers?
I chose to invest in a slow/ cold pressed juicer because the quality is priceless and you get more for your buck in the long run. Top products also come with an extended warranty. I only recently upgraded and used my old kuvings juicer for ten years.
Slow/cold pressed juicer: More expensive however extracts more juice and nutrients from your produce. The liquid can be bottled and refrigerated to be kept for up to 5 days.
Traditional juice extractor: This juicer uses fast spinning blades to chop the produce. This method generates heat which can destroy some of the vital enzymes in the produce. This juicing method also oxidises the nutrients meaning it needs to be consumed straight away and can not be stored for later use.
I love fresh juice because it is a simple way to fast track loads of nutrients into your body. When I’m travelling fresh juice is always my go-to. It is my favourite pre and post flight booster and helps me fight jet lag
Some of there other benefits I notice from drinking fresh juice is better bowel movements, clearer eyes and skin and more energy/ vitality.
I highly recommend sourcing organic produce. There are many antioxidants and vital nutrients in the skin of fruits and veggies. If you can source organic lemons limes grapefruits etc, I highly recommend not peeling the skin off them and juicing all parts of them.
