Why you should use a juice extractor
Nutritionists and experts recommend filling your diet with raw, healthy foods. Cooking food means a considerable amount of nutrition is lost, meaning that our bodies don’t get all the possible enzymes and vitamins.
Consuming natural fruit and vegetable juices is an excellent way to maintain a healthy diet by eating raw foods. You can create mixtures that you love and make the most of all the nutrients contained in your food.
When it comes to the product itseld, a Juice Extractor offers many benefits. Some of these are below:
- Up to 30% more performance than using a manual juicer.
- It creates fresh juices, which can last up to 48 hours after preparation.
- It is a silent device which means no distractions while you juice.
- It is super easy to clean and assemble.
- It can work uninterrupted for 30 minutes.
- It processes nuts, fruits, vegetables and herbs.
- It creates far less foam than a blender or a manual juicer.
- Some models allow you to make ice cream, purées, dough, and even fresh pasta.
Start enjoying fresh drinks
It’s best to drink a glass of fresh juice first thing in the morning, at least thirty minutes before your first meal. Doing this means that your body will immediately take in all the nutrients contained in the fruits or vegetables used. Make your juices for the morning with health and energy-boosting ingredients, such as oranges, bananas, berries and apples.
You can drink fruit juices all day but we advise against drinking them during meals. It is better to drink them a couple of hours later for the best results.
Before bedtime, consider making your juice out of kale, cucumber, lemon, basil, rocket and ginger. The combination of these fresh and healthy ingredients can help with losing weight, as well as reduce fluid retention, gas formation and bloating. It’s also super delicious!
Some of the other benefits you get when consuming fruit and vegetable juices include:
- Higher energy levels
- Improve digestion
- Stronger immune system
- Higher bone density
- Better sleep
- Prevention of chronic diseases

Choosing the best Slow Juicer for you
What are the different types
Whole Slow Juicers and Vertical Juicers:
If you need a compact device for your kitchen, then a vertical Slow Juicer is the one for you. The top half of the juicer, known as the 'hopper' can be kept separately to the bottom of the juicer, reducing storage height by 50%. Vertical Juicers have a larger feeding chute than Horizontal Juicers - meaning less you don’t need to prepare your produce as much. Vertical Juicers are also speedier than horizontal models because gravity helps to pull the produce towards the auger.
Whole Slow Juicers are a type of Vertical Juicer which allow you to insert whole products without any need to peel or chop them which saves you even more time. Vitality 4 Life has several models available, and we’d like to highlight the BioChef Quantum Whole Slow Juicer which can achieve continuous juicing for up to 60 minutes, producing a delicious 40 litres of juice.
Although Horizontal Juicers are slower, slow juicing prevents oxidation and ensures enzymes, vitamins and minerals stay intact. Compared to other models, a Horizontal Slow Juicer easily handles leafy greens and wheatgrass, which creates a higher juice yield. Among the range of products offered by Vitality 4 Life, we highly recommend the BioChef Axis Cold Press Juicer. With the BioChef Axis you can make detoxifying cold pressed juice, healthy purees, dips and baby foods, homemade pasta, nut butters, pure fruit sorbets and much more.
This category of Juice Extractors is intended for health professionals, dieticians, doctors, patients who must follow specific diets, and any other people who want a juice of the best possible quality. The twin gear extraction process ensure enzymes stay alive for up to 72 hours. A professional juicer offers a far greater performance and produces up to 10% more juice than single screw models. In this category we highlight the GreenPower Hippocrates Plus - voted the world’s best twin gear juicer.
You should consider the following
Size of the feeding chute: The larger the opening, the higher the capacity of the device to process more food at the same time. Also, a bigger opening also allows for easier cleaning, ultimately saving you both time and effort.
Rotation speed: The lower the RPM, the better. The slow pressing-out of the juice helps you extract more enzymes and nutrients without hurting them. In addition to this, a slow rotation speed means less noise.
Design: Choose a model with user-friendly dials and an eye pleasing design that harmonizes with the look and feel of your kitchen. Vitality 4 Life offers Juice Makers in a huge variety of colors, from simple and elegant black and white to slick silver and burgundy.
Easy to clean: We know that the greater the number of pieces of the appliance, the longer it will take to assemble, disassemble and, clean! Our large range of Juice Extractors come with a clear structure that offers simple cleaning.
Enzyme Protection System (EPT™): Enzymes are important for our body to function properly, and cooking limits their presence our food. This label guarantees your protection.
BPA-free products: Bisphenol A is a toxic and carcinogenic substance, used in the manufacture of some plastic materials. The 'BPA free' label gives you peace of mind that no harmful toxins will leak into foods.
Value for Money: We are focussed on offering 'value for money' on our Juicers. It’s important to us that they come with everything you need to get started, such as simple product manuals and fun recipe books.
Juices can be enjoyed every day and are important for a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Don’t let your juicer sit unloved at the back of your cupboard...choose an aesthetically pleasing design you are proud to display on your kitchen countertop, and drink your way to five-a-day!
The latest technology
Regular centrifugal juicers extract juice by quickly spinning ingredients within the juicer. These type of juicers are very noisy due to the high-speed spinning of the motor, and they also kill all of the valuable vitamins enzymes that your body needs.
Our range of masticating juicers use the best cold press juicing technology to ensure that the living juice retains all the nutrients, vitamins and enzymes in the food. It does this by crushing and pressing ingredients to extract the highest possible juice yield. The quality of the juice from cold press juicers is not only more superior in nutritional value, but it can also be stored for up to 48-72 hours.
The wide-mouth feeding shoot is the functionality for the juicer to process whole fruit and vegetable, which is the latest technology.
