Investing in your health

Buying a juicer is an investment in your long-term vitality, energy and health care. While you can find a juicer at any budget, remember that the less expensive models may not be the best fit, especially if you are juicing every day. Many times, a more expensive model will yield higher amounts of juice, so you want to consider long term value and money savings. For example: if you spend $100/month on produce and get 30% more juice, that’s a savings of $30/month = $360 annually. You’ve already paid for a premium juicer.
