Where did I find this?: When I started to heal myself with nourishing foods, the first stop was juicing heaven. I needed a super powered juicer- one that would ensure maximum nutrients from my veggies and fruits, with minimum damage to the cell walls. During my research for the perfect machine, I came across this handy video (see below). For some reason it made me giggle a lot, but it also proved the point and I was sold.
Why I Love It: Slow juicers ensure the cell walls of my fruits and veggies stay intact, so all the nutrients and enzymes aren't lost or oxidized- keeping it closer to it's natural form. As a juice without as much fiber, though, my body absorbs these essential nutrients much quicker into the blood stream- like a party for your cells! It's also a super way to get a little leaner- getting loads of nutrients in a concentrated form, as in juice, means you get all the goods your bod needs, while taking in less bulk and calories.
Why You Will Love It: Don't be fooled by the name "slow" juicer- the Hurom actually juices faster than your average high speed juicer, plus you get more juice out of less produce. Shazaaaaam- talk about win/win! The parts are small and few- which makes it super easy to clean. Oh and fresh pressed juice is amazing. It will make your cells dance and in return, you will be too.
Why You Need It: Juicing is the easiest way to get essential nutrients in- detoxifying your liver and other organs, increasing energy and your mood and helping to make other foods more digestible. For a lot of peeps with chronic illness who aren't able to consume solid foods during periods of flare-ups, juice is the answer. For those trying to include more raw fruits and veggies into their diets, juice is the answer. For anyone looking to shed some junk from the trunk, clear up the skin, have shinier hair, and way more energy and vitality...guess what? You got it. Juice. is. the. answer.
