Juicing extracts the juice from fresh fruits and vegetables. The juices contain most of the vitamins and minerals. However, whole fruits and vegetables also have healthy fiber, which is lost during most juicing.
Some juicing proponents say that juicing is better for you than eating whole fruits and vegetables. The fact is your body can absorb the nutrients better and of course gives your digestive system a rest from working too hard on fiber. Juicing can reduce the risk of cancer, it can boost your immune system, help remove toxins, aid digestion and help you lose weight.
But extracted juices don’t have scientific evidence that they are healthier than the juice you get by eating the fruit or vegetable itself.
Anyway, some people don’t enjoy eating fruits and vegetables and if you don’t, juicing may be a fun way to start. Well, you can add them to your diet and try fruits and vegetables juices you normally wouldn’t eat. You can find many juicing recipes online or mix up your own combinations of fruits and vegetables.
You can also try blending. Blending the edible parts of fruits produces a drink that contains more healthy phytonutrients and fiber. And fiber can help you feel full.
If you do try juicing, make only as much juice as you can drink at one time because fresh squeezed juice can quickly develop harmful bacteria. If you buy commercially produced fresh juice, select a pasteurized product.

This is a very budget-friendly machine, comparatively speaking. For that perk, there are some things to realize: The chute is pretty small, so it’s very important to remember to chop the food up to bite-size chunks before putting them through. It’s slow, but that doesn’t bother me. It’s a puzzle to put together the first time, so be prepared, and since the basket is small, it’s not as easy to clean as some bigger ones in other models. Overall though, there seems to be a little less pulp than my old Unit which is nice. It’s kind of comical juicing carrots because the pulp comes out looking like Cheetos. For what you pay, it’s pretty decent once you get used to the added chopping and how painfully slow it is, although in all fairness it does warn of that in the description. I’d rather deal with the quirks than pay for one in the $500-$800 range just because it’s faster and requires less chopping.

I purchased this from Amazon’s warehouse deals for $20. This is my third week into a juicing regime with my husband. I figured for $20, what did I have to lose? This is the best $20 I have ever spent. We juice three times a day and this Westinghouse juicer is a beast. It takes everything from citrus with rind on to kale. I am completely blown away by the quality and performance of this juicer. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to incorporate juicing into your diet. Thank you, Amazon and Thank you.

I love this juicer. I have had rapid high speed juicers before (multiple) but they lacked the ability to do greens well and also the pulp was very moist and there was a lot of foam. This is a low foam process and the pulp is very dry and greens are ground up well. It is super easy to clean and quick. I don’t mind chopping things smaller to get into the tube-but if that would annoy you-don’t get this blender.
Juicing is a powerful tactic used by a quickly-growing amount of people to lose weight fast, get proper nutrition, and help fuel healthy lifestyles.
Whenever I come from vacation or a particularly bad eating night, I reach for a healthy juice to cleanse my body and give my digestive system a break.
I hope that I help you guys out there in searching for the right juicers. If there is anything that you need or if you have any comment please let me know. Thank you.
