In today’s busy world, packing a good shot of vital nutrients with a daily juice is something we sometimes want to do in a hurry. The Sage Nutri Juicer Plus is so fast that your juice may even be ready before your toast. The Omega VertVRT400HDS Slow Juice, on the other hand, is slow for a reason – because research suggests that even more vitamins and minerals end up in your glass.
