Should we drink fruit juice every day ?

If you do so then remember your daily requirement of 2 fruits so stick to that requirement and blend the fiber and drink along with it as your body need fiber too .

Whats the best choice for a daily juice habit?

Should we use extractors or blenders to squeeze juice?

Use blenders as you need fiber if you use extractors they will provide you with smoothies but without important fiber removed .
