Determined to make 2015 healthier? Try masticating juicers!

Juicing is getting ever more popular these days, and no wonder! The practice of juicing regularly helps to rid the body of toxins, boosts immunity, aids digestion, increases energy and promotes weight loss when combined with exercise and a balanced diet.

Better yet, drinking freshly juiced fruits and vegetables helps to alkalize the body and, in doing so, can help to improve chronic conditions that thrive in an acidic body.

By juicing fresh fruit and vegetables, you can easily absorb all those beneficial enzymes, vitamins and minerals and powerful nutrients in their most concentrated form. Home juicing produces truly superior result to juices found on the supermarket shelves.

GreenValu Juicer €199.95

GreenValu juicer is a masticating juicer which has a high juice yield with auto pulp ejection for continuous juicing. Masticating juicers are said to be better than centrifugal juicers because they work at a slower speed and are more efficient, particularly with leafy green vegetables. Regular high speed centrifugal juicers produce some heat which some say might have a detrimental effect on the all important enzymes being juiced. Easy to use and easier to clean – being healthier has never been so straight forward. GreenValu also run healthy workshops throughout Dublin for interested groups or beginners.
