We know fruit juices are good for health, but are you still using packaged or bottled juices? Forget about chemically enhanced juices and opt for freshly squeezed juice. If you work out the difference in price between packaged or bottled juices and fresh fruit, you will soon see that a juicer will not only save you money in the long run, but also ensure that your family enjoys the full benefit of fresh fruit daily.

 

Orange juice

Wake up to a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and drink an energy boost while enjoying the health benefits of this favourite citrus fruit.

We know that oranges are rich in vitamin C, a vitamin that boosts the immune system and helps reduce winter colds, but oranges also help to reduce cholesterol and lower blood pressure.

This citrus fruit is also high in potassium, thiamine (vitamin B¹) and folate (vitamin B9), all of which are essential nutrients for good health.

Apple juice

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and the same can be said of drinking a glass of apple juice every day.

Slimmers know that apple juice is good for detox, and dietician use apple juice to treat chronic anemia, so pregnant ladies should definitely incorporate an apple a day. But these are just a few of the benefits of drinking freshly squeezed apple juice,

Bet you didn't know that apple juice is good for digestion and chronic constipation problem. It's also recommended for treating cidity and acid reflux. It can be taken in its natural form for treating heartburn. And, like oranges, fresh squeezed apple juice helps to reduce bad cholesterol.

Pawpaw juice

We love pawpaw (papaya) in a fruit salad, but try a freshly squeezed glass of pawpaw in the morning and you will want more.

Not only high in energy, pawpaw is rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals such as provitamin A, vitamin B and C, magnesium, as well as dietary fibre. Pawpaw is high in potassium and is said to reduce the risk of hypertension and possibly stroke.

All these nutrients promote cardiovascular health and provide protection against colon cancer.

Note: Individuals suffering from kidney diseases should not consume large quantities of pawpaw due to high potassium content.

If you are serious about juicing, choose a juicer that is most effective at juicing raw fruit and vegetables the most efficient and effective way.

Oscar Juicer DA900 is manufactured by the original Oscar Juicer designers. This international Award winning 3 stage single auger stonemill-type juicer is designed to extract the liquid contents (and some pulp if desired) from a large variety of fruits and vegetables, greens and grasses.

The juice from the Oscar Juicer DA900 is totally different from the common centrifugal juicer found in superstores. Operating almost noiselessly at only 80 rpm, it crushes and squeezes the juice out of the fruit, vegetable or grass; it can even juice pine needles. Known as cold extraction juice, this juice is acknowledged in international health circles to be the best quality and therefore the 1st choice for healing and maintenance of health.
