Blending vs. Extracting: What's the Difference?

Blending vs. Extracting: What's the Difference?

To get the most out of life, you need to feel your best, and the only way to feel your best is to get the most out of the foods you eat. Lucky for you, that's what we're all about!

Eating an apple a day is an excellent first step on the long journey toward optimum health, but what if chewing away at your apple left many of the nutrients contained within untouched? Your body needs those nutrients to function at its full capacity, so let's take a deeper look how you can do more with your daily eats.


Blending foods in a traditional blender or mixer was the conception of who we are today. When you blend foods, you maintain all the essential components that make up delicious, whole foods - the skin, the fiber, the vitamins, the seeds - everything! But most blenders aren't powerful enough to turn these things into a scrumptious, nutritious drink. Usually, you end up with a chunky, drippy mess that's hard to drink and doesn't taste very good.

This is one of the reasons blending is so unsustainable. How often do you want to drink something with chunks of food and stringy bits of kale? Beside not being palatable, these giant chunks have not been broken down and they create more work for your digestive system and less absorbable nutrients for your body to use.

On top of that, you have a big machine with lots of buttons that you don't use often. You use it once to churn out this drink, and then you take 10 minutes pulling it apart and washing all the pieces. If you aren't tired by the process before starting, you will be by the end.


That's where extraction came in!

Nutrition extraction is the key to healthy eating and proper nutrient absorption. It's the mechanism the NutriBullet uses to break down fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and other plant foods down to their most absorbable state.

Unlike juicers and blenders, nutrition extractors break down the cell walls of fibrous plant foods, releasing the important vitamins and minerals contained within. At the same time, they reduce beneficial fiber, pulp, seeds, and skins into a smooth-as-silk texture, delivering food to your body in an easily digestible, easily absorbable form.

Better than that? It all happens in 40 seconds or less. Nutrition extraction is the ultimate upgrade from blending; it creates a smooth, easily drinkable smoothie, it optimizes nutrient bioavailability and it enables you to consume more fruits and veggies than you ever have before.

So, when you're ready to take your health to that next level, don't blend it! Extract it! NutriBullet helps make healthy eating a breeze. Check out NutriBullet PRO, which breaks down the toughest skins, seeds, stems, and more so your body can reap all the benefits offered by nature's best. Get it today.

I just got my nutribullet few days ago and I already feel ALOT better !!! I've only tried 2 of the recieipes so far but tonight I went out and bought all the main ingredients to experiment with . I am so glad I bought this machine
I have just purchased the nutribulletrx. It hasn't arrived yet, however I am excited about it's arrival. I have been on all kinds of medicines for years and know that I do not eat well. As I watched the ad on tv I thought this system would be perfect for me.

Nutribullet Rx is the best in the world of Extraction. Just try it and you shall confirm it. The soup made with it can not be compared with any other.
Just bought our nutri bullet and we love it! Have to study recipes!

I LOVE my NBRX, have been using it for a few months now. The veg/fruit smoothies are great, full of fiber, vitamins, low calorie and taste great! I haven't tried the soups yet, but I definitely will. Its so easy, and the "machine" takes up little space and is super powerful!
