A common question our clients ask us is what type of juicer is the best one to buy. Well this is it! We love the Omega 8006 Masticating Juicer for multiple reasons. This particular juicer is a low-speed, masticating juicer compared to a high-speed, centrifugal juicer. The benefit of a masticating juicer is preservation of enzymes and nutrients from the fruits and vegetables. Because it is operating at a low speed, it extracts the most juice out of the ingredients. Centrifugal juicers kill some of the live enzymes and do not extract all the juice possible. The Omega Juicer is an affordable option for those who are looking to live a lifestyle of juicing. We highly recommend this product!

We absolutely LOVE this blender! The Vitamix makes healthy eating simple, quick, and easy. From smoothies to soups to dips and spreads, this blender does it all. There is little preparation required because the heavy duty power of the machine and sharp blades does all the chopping and mixing for you. This brand is awesome because it has a 7-year warranty so if anything happens to the machine you can get it fixed at no cost. Vitamix is the chosen blender of chefs worldwide because it is such a versatile product. It is also very easy to clean making it convenient for those with a busy lifestyle. We love this blender to make soups because when on the high setting, it actually heats the soup up! How easy it that? Try using this blender for your favorite green smoothie recipe or use it to make our Butternut Squash Soup recipe!

Trifala is a Whole Journey favorite! We use this constantly with our clients because it is such an effective product. Trifala is a popular herbal remedy used in Ayurvedic medicine to promote a healthy digestive system. It is made from three unique fruits, amla, harada, and behada, all known for their healing properties on the digestive system. Triphala has a gentle laxative effect and therefore beneficial for those with a sluggish digestive tract. We recommend this to clients who suffer from decreased elimination in order to keep bowel movements regular. It is safer than over-the-counter laxatives because it is all herbal based and non-habit forming. Triphala simply helps the body get back on track with digestion and elimination. We give this product 5 stars all the way.

When it comes to probiotics, quality is key. PB8 Probiotic is one of the only health food store brand of probiotics we recommend to our clients. It is a multi-strain probiotic containing Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium lactis, and Lactobacillus plantarum just to name a few. Probiotics are a vital part of good digestion for anyone who suffers from intestinal problems, autoimmune disorders, anyone who takes birth control pills or people who take antibiotics. In simple terms, the role of probiotics is to increase the good bacteria in our intestinal tract to help fight off the bad bacteria in order to keep a healthy balance. PB8 can be found in the refrigerated section of the supplement aisle in your local health food store. Pay attention to purchase the vegetarian capsules as they are not made with animal-based gelatin.
