Genuine juices, compared to those from the shops, made of concentrate, are from a whole different world. They are fresh and boosting with natural vitamins, without any added preservatives or sugar. You are totally aware about what is in your drink, and your own personal flavor is a mixture that you can improve and work on.
When things are in season, they tend to be cheaper, and of better quality, as they have not been picked immature , and would maybe have been sprayed with chemicals, to prolong the lifetime of the fruit.

Shop around for a machine that suits your need.
Remember also that you can use some, or many vegetables, for example, are carrots both very sweet and actually quite juicy.
