Juicing has become a popular way to consume nutrients naturally and quickly.
But what are the basic health benefits of it? Well, if you’re a green drink veteran, you likely already know and can share some first-hand experiences. For those new to the world of frothy emerald liquid, maybe you’ve heard of or seen great results. Among the reported benefits include: getting in that daily serving of fruits and veggies (6-8), absorbing nutrients better (with less digestion), and strengthening your immune system.

Whether that sells you – or you’re just looking to get dad a last minute gift to encourage him to leave his golden arches for (literal?) greener pastures, there are various types you can choose. While a “best” juicer is going to be subjective, you might find the best juicer for your needs by perusing some of the top few that seem to be fan favorites – along with a few user demos.
Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor
This counter top juicer has an extra-wide 3-inch feeder chute, 850 watt dual speed motor, a powerful stainless-steel cutting disc, large-capacity pulp collector, and dishwasher-safe parts. While the list price is around $200.00, you can lop off about $50 if you buy it at Amazon. The following video review takes you through the process, while being pretty thorough and objective.
2. Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer – Black and Chrome
A masticating juicer (AKA cold-press/less heat to disturb the enzymes), this one has been described as easy-to-use with a powerful motor. The yield of juice you’ll get is high and there’s an auto pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing. The Omega uses a dual-stage juicing system. Some say the whole process is a little long to pump out the good stuff – but if its quiet operation (versus some of the noisier ones) and higher nutritional value is worth your time, it might be for you. The list price is $390.00 and if you get it through Amazon, the discount price is $257.99.
Here’s a review for the Omega:
3. Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor
This one has 2 speed controls (high at 13,000 RPM and low at 6,500 RPM). The Breville has die-cast steel housing, a stainless-steel micromesh filter, and a titanium-plated cutting disk. Also, with its 3-inch circular feed hole, you can fit in whole fruits and vegetables (less chopping!). The list price is around $399.00 – but Amazon’s deal drops that figure down to $299.00.
The video below was made by a dude just beginning his health journey. I thought I’d share because it offers a pretty good demo of how the Breville works. Also, this gentleman’s progress since this video has been extremely impressive. He lost about 100 lbs just a few months after uploading this and now lives a healthy, active life. Well done, sir!
Good luck on your health journeys!
