5 Benefits of Buying a Juicer You’ll Wish You’d Known Before

With juicers running as high as $1,000, you’ll want to know what you didn’t know about juicing before. You might work yourself up to such an investment, only after you have confirmed juicing is your way of life.

If you make the occasional glass or grapefruit juice, you should shop and buy with that in mind. Now, juicers differ from blenders even though some blenders have enough power to chop up some already cut rinds. But juicers will squeeze the juice out of just about any fruit or vegetable you want and remove the pulp while it’s at it.

Before shopping, you should decide on your planned use. More and more customers are juicing several times a day for benefits you may not have considered.

5 Benefits to Juicing:

  • Efficient nutrition. When you juice fruits, vegetables, greens, and herbs, you create a power drink. But, you must consider what your body type, health condition, and metabolism require. You can overdo the intake, especially when the drink is tasty.

For example, just because you can produce a drink with heavy fiber content doesn’t mean that much fiber is good for you. You must also remember fruits and vegetables contain sugars, but you shouldn’t load more than 25 grams of sugar to your diet.

  • Varies your diet. According to different recipes, you can combine vegetables the family doesn’t like with tastes they do. You can balance sweets and sours to add flavor and spice to otherwise flat tastes.

Juicing lets you incorporate leafy grasses, herbs, and cruciferous vegetable into all-veggie juices or even into fruit juice bases. You can call this “stealth juicing.”

  • Healthy habit. Juicing will notch up even good eating habits. For example, it only delivers immune-boosting nutrients. It extracts enzymes from fiber and delivers a “purer” juice to your digestive system more quickly.

In removing insoluble fiber from your ingredients, juicing increases the body’s absorption of nutrients that would take longer to metabolize after eating whole fruits and vegetables.

  • Resists disease. Dr. Oz confirms, “These [juicing] nutrients can help protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer and various inflammatory diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis. Valuable compounds called flavonoids and anthocyanins are abundant in a variety of fruits and vegetables and guard against oxidative cellular damage, which comes from everyday cellular maintenance and is exacerbated by exposure to chemicals and pollution.”

But he warns to wash any ingredients and to avoid overconsumption when your diet intake should remain at 2,000 calories per day.

  • Juicers differ. Juicer Land reminds you there are three types of juicers:
  • Centrifugal Juicer blades rotate at high speed. They work fast but add air to the mixture and they are noisy.
  • Masticating Juicers take up more room. However, they extract juice from leaves, herbs, soft greens, and dense greens and vegetables. They will also make nut butters, baby foods, sorbets, and pasta.
  • Triturating Juicers have twin augers that vary in speed with the high speed masticating soft foods and the low torque processing low-moisture ingredients. Huffington Post says, “Because they don’t produce as much heat, they keep more of the fresh ingredients’ nutrients intact.”

Last bit of advice

Buy what you need. It may be different than what you want. Considering your budget, you should buy to fit or improve your nutrition habits.

Limitless Today, How about Tomorrow? by Team GENz #GlobeProjectEd

When we first started using Windows Movie Maker almost two decades, I remember it taking us hours, even days, to finish a video presentation. I was already in my early 20s then, so, yes, I’m part of that generation where Facebook and Friendster did not exist, where there were no smartphones, and computer screens were green or black.  Which is why it amazes me how kids nowadays can create commercial quality vids and pics using just a phone.  They can shoot and edit faster than you can say Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Check out the entries to Globe ProjectED, a nationwide video competition open to all High School students, and see how awesome this generation’s kids are.

They were tasked to create a 3-minute video using a smartphone to answer the question “How is technology changing how you learn today?”

Jerald Edd D. King and Simon Stephen T. Sy are representing Philadelphia High School in Globe ProjectED.  Help us support their Team GENz by watching, liking, and sharing their video.  🙂


Horse Products for Joint Pain are Beneficial

When horses are experiencing pain, they don’t tackle traditional tasks in an effective manner. If you have horses that roam slowly around your property, they may have sore muscles. One of the most practical ways to reduce tension, discomfort, and joint pain that affect horses is by using supplements. Horse supplements are beneficial because they’re strategically designed to target key muscles that ache when these animals jump, run, and sprint. By using supplements regularly, you’ll notice reasonable results during typical riding situations.


Horses that race on a track need toned muscles because firm tissues impact speed and efficiency. When a horse doesn’t have strong muscles, training sessions will be very challenging, as the animal will slow down throughout most routines. If training exercises aren’t completed properly, productivity may suffer on the track.

In order to determine whether or not a horse needs a supplement for joint pain, you must study key habits throughout training routines. For example, if your horse successfully jumps over the lowest bars and fails to leap over highest bars, supplements may be needed. In this situation, the horse can’t jump high because tension builds up in key joints during the jumping or leaping process. A supplement can reduce the inflammation that causes discomfort when a horse jumps, and the formula can also prevent pain symptoms that occur when the horse runs and sprints before leaping over a bar.


During parades, horses have to support a rider’s weight while roaming throughout a variety of neighborhoods. If you don’t want delayed cars and bands while a parade is in progress, your horse will need a supplement especially if joint pain typically slows the animal down. When a horse that’s experiencing pain travels in a parade, major inefficiencies could occur, as the pain may make the animal stop or delay traffic.

Supplements for horses can provide big benefits in other situations as well. For example, if you use horses to tow objects or equipment, a supplement can ease pain symptoms that could occur when these tasks are completed. The process of finding a supplement for specific breeds and situations is easy because many companies provide practical joint options for horses.

Summer Blast at AMBAY Kids Camp 2015

Fantastic. Spectacular. Amazing. Extraordinary. Awesome. Exciting. Exhilarating. I could go on and on listing all the words in a thesaurus that could describe just how marvelous this year’s Kids Camp was.

The kids let their creative juices flow with the ART ATTACK activity, learned to relax and to control their bodies during KIDS YOGA, unleashed their energy and learned the value of teamwork during the AMAZING RACE OBSTACLE COURSE, had loads of fun during the WATER FIGHT, experienced a little bit of camping as they listened to a story and roasted sausages over a BONFIRE, and had one of the best summer experience EVER.  Although the activities were quite similar to that of last year’s, there were more participants in this year’s camp which meant that FUN level was at its highest!

A few minutes of CIRCLE TIME for the kids to get to know each other.

FIRE! Or more like WATER!!!! This WATER FIGHT was so much more fun to watch than the so-called Battle for Greatness.

What’s a camp without a BONFIRE? Kids were thrilled to roast sausages over the fire.

Have you ever watched a movie under the stars…on the beach?  You should really try it!  My own kids got acquainted with Mei and Satsuki and have watched My Neighbor Totoro about half a dozen times already since we got back from Ambay.

Of course, a beach vacation isn’t complete without some fun in the sea and on the sand.

We’ve been to Ambay Beach Resort four time already and this is probably the best one so far.  I bet next year’s Kids Camp will even be more exciting.  We’re certainly looking forward to the third Ambay Kids Camp. If you want to join us, make sure you sign up early ’cause slots are limited.
