Juicing for Health!
Maintaining a balanced diet is important for our general health with a vital element of that balance being provided by the nutrients and fiber in fruit and vegetables.

That 400g daily total of a mixture of fruit and vegetables is thought to help reduce the risk of stroke, type 2 diabetes and heart disease, while also combatting obesity.
Unfortunately, because we are all leading such busy lives, preparing dishes containing vegetables or fruit every day can be a chore, and the 5 A Day rule is regularly broken. To counter that many people use a juicer to quickly and easily prepare a healthy beverage containing fresh fruit and vegetables to be enjoyed at any time of day.
