Quiet, healthful, & self-contained. Some will pedal the "Classic" Juicycle ® for fitness. Some pedal-power their juice for health! "inCREDulous" one senses once actually on this - part machine & pure functional sculpture. Fresh homemade garden juicing - quiet, healthful, & self-contained. The Juicycle ® - The Village garden health tool, The Juicycle® 'Classic' is a sturdy, and portable raw food processor system (utilizing a wheat-grass juicer). You push (or cleat into) bike pedals on a semi-recumbant throne, and the Juicycle® re-directs leg energy to the juicer - freeing your hands to feed in FRESH vegetable produce - a blending of FRESH liquid extractions known to aid and enhance normal human gland and brain functions. The Juicycle® generates 1 to 10 oz/min fresh juice from an "easy" - to "hammer" pedaling (spinning) pace. This liquid refreshment contains naturally occurring nourishment for every body. This nutritious concentrate is usually consumed immediately, avoiding packaging and landfill repercussions. This enables refreshment! (With some simple garden ingredients, giggles, and *little effort*) .
Certain common vegetable juices are free-radical nibblers (there's that anti-oxidant theme again, hmm). Many are fundamental ingredients to 'Smart Drinks'. This is genuine "nerve food". Initiates describe immediate and noticeable <positive> effect (after a sip of wheat grass-celery cocktail). Phone or email for the complete 10-page plan manual (for the Do-it-Yourselfer) for a lifetime of fun and synergy. The turn-of-the century hand-cranked juicer machine is often mistaken for a "meat grinder" - a plated, cast-iron unit. The wheat-grass juicer has a spout. There usually is no steam (i.e. 'tip me over and pour me out'). The Juicycle ® turns the handle three or four times (normal hand-cranked rotations) faster and easier. The Juicycle ® is a sturdy, adjustable, portable, and rugged tool-set that will free your hands to blend together your own vibrant, healthful beverage. Fresh juice tidbits: add a bit of fresh ginger tea, salt and ice cubes. From In the Sun, since 1990 - a unique quiet experience for fitness and health. Fresh juice. A natural health charge .
