Spring is already here, and summer is parked around the corner. With the spells of warm weather becoming more frequent, many health enthusiasts are finding now the perfect time to refresh themselves and get their bodies into a healthier state.
Going on a juice cleanse right before the summer season gives your digestive system time to rest, improve your hydration, reduce food cravings and bloatedness, and research has shown signs of it improving the quality of your sleep.
If you shop at nearby farmers’ markets or supermarkets, you can pick up fresh produce at an affordable price and experiment with different flavours to which your tastebuds find most appealing, whether you prefer a tropical taste, or a refreshing citrus kick to start the day.
Making juice from scratch has never been easier. All you need is fresh produce and a juicer. Plug your juicer into the wall, flick the switch and start adding your produce into the chute, for larger pieces, you may need to cut them down so they fit. The dry pulp is automatically ejected into a separate container, leaving only the fresh juice.
There are hundreds of juicers on the market to choose from, and depending on how often you’ll be using the juicer may influence how much you’ll be wanting to spend. To save you the hassle of reading reviews, and finding out which juicer is right for you, we’ve gathered a great range of juicers suitable for all budgets, so you can begin your summer juice cleanse with a refreshing kick.
