Wheatgrass is one of the most powerful Superfoods in the world and is so potently abundant with rich nutrients, vitamins and enzymes. Just 30ml of freshly squeezed organic wheatgrass juice (1 shot) is equivalent in to nutritional value of around 1kg of leafy green vegetables and that is only some of the benefits of wheatgrass.

More than that, wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll, which provides more energy than any other element. Produce which contains chlorophyll builds red blood cells, aids bloodstream function and improves blood sugar problems. It delivers
Horizontal juicers are so much more than juicers
Did you know that horizontal juicers are not just for juicing? Juicers such as the BioChef Axis double as raw food processors. Not only can you make your favourite juices you can also enjoy, nut butters, sorbets, dips, pasta, bread sticks and more.
You can use a horizontal juicer for most kitchen food processing tasks making them more versatile than a vertical juicer. If you have just had a baby the horizontal juicer will be your best friend in the kitchen quietly making fresh, nutritious baby foods to both eat now and store for later.
Beetroot Juice - good for the heart and your health
Thanks to Heart Week we are becoming more aware of our hearts and what we can do to protect them. I am not sure if beetroot juice will protect your heart from being broken, however, this delicious, luscious red vegetable can play an important role in keeping your heart healthy.

Studies have shown that "that a daily glass of beetroot juice can lower blood pressure in people with hypertension - even those whose high blood pressure was not controlled by drug treatment." Dr. Shannon Amoils, British Heart Foundation, senior research advisor

Is it a spelling mistake? a bird? someone who doesn’t believe in God? No, its someone on the Pegan Diet.
A mixture between a Paleo diet consisting chiefly of meat, fish, vegetables and fruit and a Vegan diet that includes no animal products of any kind. So basically a Pegan diet is a Vegan diet with a side serve of meat. Upon looking at it I think they might be onto something. It’s not really a diet, it’s just good food. Yay.
Dr Hyman, a legend in
In a nutshell YES. People are becoming more and more discerning about what they eat and how they can get the best nutrient filled drink or meal for their healthy body buck. The high powered blender and cold press juicer offer different ways for the body to ingest healthy nutrients, enzymes and just plain deliciousness. Put simply the blender will retain the fibre and the juicer will give you a quicker nutrient blast that can be absorbed more easily. Both a juicer and a blender are important for different reasons but together they are unstoppable.
What does my cold press juicer do?

Instagram is turning green for the latest superfood - celery juice.
Anthony William the Medical Medium is the man behind the celery juice craze. He claims that we should drink 16oz (500ml) of plain celery juice every morning to radically transform our health and digestion and all in a single week! Anthony is not a doctor, a nutritionist or a researcher. What he does do is converse with the 'spirit of compassion' for information on how to cure diseases. In particular those that baffle the medical profession. Each to their own of course but does it work?
The concept of living juice was first introduced by Dr. Norman Walker (1886-1985). Dr Walker declared that the enzymes in fruit and vegetables die at temperatures which exceed 50 degrees Celsius. He explained that any juice extractor that used a high-speed blade or centrifuge created friction heat leading to the destruction of enzymes. Nutritionists advise plenty of fresh, raw fruit and vegetables as essential to well-being but we only obtain the maximum benefits from them when the goodness is released from the fibre.
Juicing will provide a highly concentrated nutrient drink. For optimum benefits the process must extract
The other day I was digging my way through the built up washing to find my teenage son's favourite t-shirt. Triumphantly I held it up and he told me I was ‘sick’. I wasn’t sure how to take it but apparently it’s a compliment. He rushed off happily and I returned to the leaning tower of washing. As I stared at it I got to thinking. I realised I was sick. I was tired. I was sick and tired. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. So I googled it.

When I turned 'a certain age' Facebook started sending me advertisements every day titled “how to lose those 5 kilos” or"how to remove stubborn belly fat". How did Facebook know? How did they know that I am five kilos overweight and not happy?
Now that I am 'a certain age' there might just be a light at the end of the tunnel I thought. I could lose the weight and finally be truly happy.
So, I tried the Atkins diet and I lost six kilos in two weeks, can you believe it? I was deliriously happy for an equivalent two weeks and then suddenly I wasn’t anymore. I hadn’t put the weight back on (yet) so where
People have been failing at their New Year's Resolutions for 4000 years. What makes me think I could do any better? It's been three days and I have already failed. At least back then the Babylonians were offering their resolutions up to God in the hope of improving the crop. Now we just offer them up to ourselves, or our nearest and dearest, who have no choice but to listen and nod along. But what do we get in return?
When looking at the top new year's resolutions I mostly notice this.. we have to give up, quit, try harder, be better,
We all know that making your own juice at home is better than going to the store to buy juice laden with sugar and artificial substances. When you are making your own juice, you know exactly what you are consuming, and this is critically important to your health.
Fresh fruit and vegetable juice has really taken off in Australia, but did you know that there’s more than one way to extract the juice from fresh produce? Here at Vitality 4 Life, we believe in slower methods of juicing because we've personally experienced the benefits. But we will let you decide.

A Brief History of Cold Press Juicing
