It is the time of year when heat waves strike the Indian subcontinent. Summer can be particularly cruel and intense in India. As a result, people usually eat less and even skip meals. To beat the heat, people often switch to light eating, and in turn, consume more liquid. A glass of juice sounds about perfect in this weather, right? Drinking juice is a terrific way of being hydrated in the scorching heat while also keeping the nutrients level high.
A juicer will make your life easier if you are looking to beat the heat! However, since there are several types of juicers in the market, it is imperative to buy one that suits your need. Typically, there are two types of juicers vis-à-vis conventional juicers and cold pressed juicer. A conventional juicer uses high-speed spinning to extract juice, which generates much heat. This results in the breakdown of essential nutrients and reduces the potency of the produce. KENT is India’s leading healthcare products company which is known for its household appliances.
