Juicing has been around for a long time, and hundreds of studies have been done on its benefits. Documentaries have been made, including Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, which tells the story of a man who lost almost 100 pounds and healed his autoimmune disease by following a 60-day juice fast.
Benefits of Juicing
- Quick, efficient way to get your nutrients
- Boosts immunity
- Gives you more energy
- Flushes out toxins
- Helps with weight lose weight
- Gives your digestive system a break
- Helps prevent cancer and disease
Impressive list, right? But if you’ve never juiced before, you might wonder where to start. Before you stock your fridge with celery, beets, apples, carrots and kale, you’ll need a good juicer.
There is indeed a juicer out there for every budget: from $20 to $400 or more. While Snow’s carries juicers in all of these price ranges, we always love to recommend Breville – moderately priced, heavy-duty, high quality juicers.
In fact, it was a Breville juicer featured in the documentary we mentioned earlier. We carry both the the Breville Compact Juice Fountain ($99.99) and the Breville Juice Fountain Plus ($149.99). They are both great machines; the Fountain Plus is built to make more juice at a time, faster – so it’s a better choice if you plan to juice frequently and/or have several juice fans in your family.
