Sticking to a diet is never easy. In fact, as a growing number of Americans fight to remain healthy, it only seems to become more difficult.
While there are temptations all around us, the solutions are never to be found. So then, what options are open to us?
Well, exercise and dieting is a start, but for many it is not enough. Dietary supplements are a hit, but with it being a mostly unregulated market, you can never be sure that you are getting what you paid for, or that it will even work as guaranteed. This leaves us in a bind.
There is however an additional option, which takes a previously unheard of approach towards weight loss and health. It is called the NutriBullet Blender, and it has managed to make an impact in the diet and healthy eating industry.
Lets take a look at NutriBullet Blender, review the company, see what they sell, take a look at prices, and find where you can buy it. Then, we will look at comparisons between this product and similar products on the market. Finally, we will look at user feedback so that you can decide if this is the right product for you.
What It Is
So what is it exactly? The product is a special kind of blender sold by the NutriBullet Company. The machine is advertised as a blender that goes beyond what normal juicers do. By that, the company states that the product blends so finely, that it extracts the nutrients from fruits and vegetables, which would otherwise go unabsorbed by our bodies.
By drinking what we blend, we absorb the extra minerals and nutrients provided by this special blending technique, aiding our body. In addition, the healthy food we use to prepare the shakes or smoothies helps reduce weight and increase health. As a result, it falls firmly in the category of a dietary supplement device, helping us help ourselves.
Where as there is limited scientific research to back the claim that additional minerals and nutrients are extracted from the prepared foods, the NutriBullet Blender is regarded as a fantastic solution for reducing pretty much any food into a very fine uniform mixture.
As for what it looks like and how it operates, it is oval in shape, thin, and about a foot high. It comes in a matte grey finish, with silver highlights. In addition, a limited time only blue and gray option is available.
The product works like many other blenders, in that you first fill a specially made cup with what you want blended. The blender fits over the top like a cap.
After making sure the cap is on tight, you turn the cup upside down before placing on the blender stand. Blending then occurs when you turn the machine on.
