Juices have gone from being healthy to trendy. From the all-day juice diets to the occasional glass of nutritive extracts, everyone’s in on this fad. And we’re not complaining because this fad actually has a bunch of health benefits. Drinking fresh juice can help boost immunity, cleanse your system and help you lose weight too.
All you need are a bunch of fruits and vegetables and the “right” juicer to blend them all.
Here are four kinds of juicers to pick from, depending on what your needs are.
This citrus press is designed specifically to squeeze out the juice from citrus fruits like orange, lemon, lime and grapefruit. It’s a very convenient gadget as everything, from the juice to the pulp and the seeds are well-separated. It has a two-way rotation mode which ensures you extract maximum juice out of the fruit. The gadget also has a measuring meter as you collect the juice, in case you want to portion control it.

For the rest of the fruits and vegetables, you can use this centrifugal juicer. It is the most common kind of juicer that separates the juice and pulp into different containers. It juices the produce really fast and is great for everyday use. However, this isn’t the ideal juicer if you’re looking for a super healthy drink as the heat oxidizes the nutrients. Make sure that you drink up the juice quickly before all of the nutritive elements are lost.
A slow juicer, which is also called the cold press juicer is what you’ll need if you’re looking for healthy juices, especially if you are on a juice cleanse diet. Since these juicers don’t produce much heat during the process they are more likely to keep the fresh nutrients intact. They are great when juicing most types of fruits and vegetables, including leafy veggies. This juicer is comparatively expensive than the rest but it also yields the best kind of juice.
This compact juicer occupies very little space and can be used for multiple purposes. You can use it to make healthy juices, smoothies and shakes. Additionally, it can also be used for dry-grinding hard spices like garam masala and jeera. You can use it to make chutneys too.
