Wheatgrass Juicer

There are many reasons why you should buy a wheatgrass juicer for your home once you understand how beneficial wheatgrass juice is to your health.

In order to understand the full health benefits of a wheatgrass juicer you will need to know what wheatgrass is and why it is so very good for you. Wheatgrass is a plant from which fresh leaf buds can be crushed in order to make fresh juice or the buds can be dried to make a powder.

Benefits Of A Wheatgrass Juicer

Wheatgrass advocates claim that regular intake can actually improve the digestive system and prevent diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Some also claim that wheatgrass cures constipation and helps to detoxify heavy metals from the bloodstream while cleansing the liver. Still others say that wheatgrass can prevent hair loss and also helps make menopause more bearable.

With all these claims it is easy to see why it can be such a great idea to buy a wheatgrass juicer because all you have to do is take the fresh leaves off of the plant and put them in the juicer. The resulting juice is both delicious and incredibly healthy and really takes no time at all to make.

You can usually find wheatgrass juicers where you would find fruit and vegetable juicers but you might have to go online if you live in a town with limited shopping as this is more of a specialty type juicer but it can be well worth the effort when you consider the health benefits a wheatgrass juicer can provide for you.

Manual Juicer

Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are recommended by doctors and other health professionals as a great tasting way to get much needed nutrients into our bodies. If you live alone and don’t cook very much you might want to consider buying a manual juicer that is small and convenient that will allow you to make a glass of juice when needed without all the mess and cleanup.

In our modern hi tech world it can be hard to believe that some people still use a manual juice extractor but the fact is they are convenient, cheap and still the most efficient way to make a glass or two of orange or lemon juice quickly.

Many people still use a manual juicer because they don’t use any electricity, are small and easy to clean, inexpensive and can even give you a way to release a little stress while grinding away making juice.

The Disadvantage Of A Manual Juicer

The main disadvantage to using a manual juicer is that it is manual. You have to put in the effort to get the juice extracted and you need to be careful to keep the seeds out of the juice. It can also be messier to use than an electric model when all is said and done. But if you like doing things the old fashioned way and like the hands-on approach when you cook you will overlook these shortcomings.

Since a manual juicer has no moving parts they are fairly cheap and any brand will do a good job for you but you might want to consider what the juicer is made of as there are many models made out of plastic, metal and ceramic. Also look for extras like built-in sieves to strain out the pulp and seeds from the juice as many very cheap manual juicer models may not have them.
