(Pocket-lint) - Juicers allow you to ingest more fruit and vegetables than you likely could if you were to eat them all whole. The result is a little less fibre but that's not a bad trade off for for all those extra vitamins.

There are generally two main types of juicer. Centrifugal juicers use a spinning disc and filters to create the smoothest juice quickly. Masticating juicers meanwhile, are slower but arguably easier to clean with more juice attained from the fruit and veg.

We've rounded up the best juicers we've found to help you get those extra nutrients.
