What’s A Green Juice?
Wow, what a well done page—loved the you tube feeds also. November 30th, at 9: March 21, at 2: Don't show me this message again. All items will be placed down the feed chute. I am not sure what the Omega is, it looks like there is an Omega series, but they are blenders.
Colon Cleanse Recipe #1: Water Enema
I am very new to this concept and I would like to permanently incorporate juicing into my lifestyle for weigh loss and over-all health. But I have also read of the virtues of wheatgrass and that I should have a machine that handles it, and apparently the Breville does not.
How important is wheatgrass in a healthy diet, and how important is it for a machine that can juice wheatgrass? Also, is there any thoughts that you may have regarding the intense speed of this machine rpm and the warning that high speed creates heat and therefore kills some of the benefits of the juice? Thank you for any thoughts you may have to guide me and many others through this confusing maze.
I am glad you brought up these points because they are a source of confusion for those new to juicing or buying their first juice extractor. The high speed of the Breville Juice Fountain and all centrifugal based juice extractors does create heat that will kill some nutrition.
However, juice is so nutritious that even with some nutrients destroyed there is still a plethora of nutrients left over. So the juice created by these machines is still very beneficial, no doubt about it. However, as you stated the Breville and all centrifugal juicers cannot juice wheatgrass, the mechanism used and the speed that they juice at cannot extract the juice from something as thin as wheatgrass.
They can extract some juice from some thicker leaves like that of kale, spinach, etc, but are not so effective at this. These centrifugal machines are best used for solid items like apples, carrots etc. If you want to juice all sorts of fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens, wheatgrass and even herbs then a masticating or triturating juice extractor is the way to go.
So they do produce more nutritious juice. They are a level up from centrifugal machines. Wheatgrass is not by any means essential to a diet, you can get a wonderful range of antioxidants and other nutrients by juicing a variety of fruits and veggies. Thank you for your quick and informative reply. I am amazed at how many choices there are when it comes to juicers. I can explain in detail the anatomy of the human ear, and the differences between a defense and a , but I am awash in confusion when it comes to the complexities of the juicer market.
You provide a tremendous service for all of us trying to live a healthier lifestyle through juicing. Thank you again for taking your time to provide this service. I watched a youtube. That fact and your comments have me rethinking my choice for a juicer. Can the masticating and triturating machines deal easily with beets and carrots and ginger and things like that? I would prefer to make an investment in something that would be quiet, easy to clean, and as inclusive of the many varieties of fruits and vegetables as possible.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Yep, the Breville is noisy, a little bit like kick starting a motorcycle, but it is super fast. It is a great way to wake the kids up. It is a great machine, and uses magnets and ionizing technology to bring more alkalinity to the juice, which reduces oxidation and increases the shelf-life of the juice. While this and other triturating machines juice beets, carrots, and ginger effectively, producing higher juice yields and nutritional value than both masticating and centrifugal juicer machines, it is harder work to use the triturating machines.
You need to use a bit of muscle to push the tougher vegetables into the twin gears, a little less force is needed for masticating juicers, and less still for centrifugal machines. The Green power Kempo comes with a fruit attachment, for juicing softer fruits, which it does fine. You can also make nut butters, baby food, healthy sorbets and pasta with it too.
So it does juice the greatest range of fruits and vegetables, including the thin stuff like wheatgrass and even herbs. The noise level is considerably less than that of the centrifugal machines. I also find the triturating machines easier to clean than the centrifugal machines since there are no serrated edges. The metal filter baskets in centrifugal machines also need a bit of a scrub.
Triturating machines wash down easier. I just want to thank you again for all your help with my education about juicers. I decided to buy the Omega VRT, and used it for the first time tonight.
It worked very well. My only hope now is to get used to the taste of the juice. Yes, I am a grown man, and yes, I did use the word yuck. But I will continue to try different combinations until I find some that I like. I suppose juicing a jelly donut kind of defeats the purpose right? Anyway, thanks again for your help. You guys rock like a beet!
I really like those top-loading masticating juicers. Glad you like it. Wow, what a well done page—loved the you tube feeds also. I feel ready to make the plunge now. I have a Juiceman, and love the juice. I love the quiet of the slow speed, love how much more juice you get etc. My Juiceman is a very good little machine, it was a fair price and seems pretty solid. I saw on one you tube that I can make muffins and crackers…Not sure I want to open up that old addiction.
Could you guys start a pulp page??? Hi, I was just reading through the recommendations on juicers, and honestly this is the best juicing website I have come across. My boyfriend and I are looking into getting our first juicer, slowly making the transition into eating organics,ect.
He seems pretty set on getting a Jack Lalanne juicer saw the infomercial will this work well as a starting out juicer? After reading the reviews I really wanted a masticating one, but it is a little out of the price range.
Hello, I am also considering the Jay Kornich juicer. Has anyone had any experience with this product? Hello,not used to juicing but decided since it helps me consume more fruits than I can chew. Where can I buy the best juice extractor that can juice cane sugar as well. Are these Juicers mentioned available here in Nigeria since i have not seen them around? The ones I saw were different. I have no idea about the what where and why of juicer machines in Nigeria, that is far outside my reach!!
Is a masticator the way to go? Hello, new to the juicing world and have wanted to buy a juicer for a while now. The only question I have to ask Darren is this, how do you feel about the new Nutribullet? I just need an honest opinion about that product. At the moment im leaning towards the breville but the guy on tv keeps telling me to buy his product haha.
Appreciate your timely reply. I have never used the nutribullet but it looks pretty neat and very powerful. However, technically it is a blender and not a juice extractor, and I am not as familiar with blenders. Hello Darren, It has been so great to find out you blog about juice maker. I am new to juice maker world. I want to buy one to make juice for my family instead of buying commercial juice with preservative. Does one and two gears make MUCH different in juice quality?
If my bugget ranging from huron, omega to Green Power, which is the best buy and with which model? Sorry for the late response! It is such a great idea to make the change from store-bought juice to fresh juice. To be honest with you, whether you buy the Omega, Hurom, or Green Power you are going to get awesome quality juice that provides excellent health benefits.
However, if you do want to get little more juice and nutrition from your fruits and veggies, then the Green Power goes the extra mile because it is a triturating juicer, and the Hurom and Green Power are masticating juicers.
So yep, the twin gears do make a difference — not a massive difference, but definitely a difference. If so, which one. The nutribullet looks like a neat little device, but you cannot really make a comparison with the machines reviewed on this page.
The infomercial hypes up the nutribullet to be some other amazing thing different to a blender, but that is just marketing, it is a blender, and not one of the best blenders at that. For more info about blending vs juicing check out our page — http: Citrus fruits can be juiced in centrifugal, masticating and triturating juicers so it is not necessary to get a separate citrus juice extractor if you are getting one of these other units.

Even though there are many juice extractors on the market to choose from, it is good to know that there are only three basic types — 1 Centrifugal Juicers 2 Masticating Juicers single gear juicers 3 Triturating Juicers twin gear juicers Centrifugal Juice Extractors Centrifugal Juice extractors are made with powerful high-speed motors that make juicing quick and easy.

A salt water flush is best done in the morning on an empty stomach , you might also want to do an enema before you start. You will most likely experience loose stools, if not you probably did not have enough salt in your mixture. Your mixture should be as salty as you can bear, it will taste awful, chug it down and wait for the avalanche! As the mixture moves through your body you will want to stay close to a bathroom for a few hours.
This flush can flush out good bacteria from your stomach, so I recommend that you supplement with a probiotic like Latero-Flora. Drinking fresh vegetable juices improve your health in so many ways that you just cannot live without them even though they taste awful sometimes. Buy a nice juicer and start juicing those vegetables, the greener the better and the more disgusting it tastes, the healthier it is for you: I sometimes blend my vegetables with freshly squeezed orange juice when I don't want to chug down something that tastes awful.
I recommend you do the same in the beginning to get your tastebuds used to your new healthy juices. The master cleanse diet has been around for close to 50 years , it is considered to be one of the best ways to give your digestive organs a rest. Mix all of the above and drink the above times a day.
No other food or liquid should be taken while you are on this cleanse. This cleanse is done for a minimum of 10 days and it is recommended that you read the book and CureZone FAQ before starting.
If you're lazy and don't want to find all of this information yourself, there is an ebook available that helps you prepare and go through the master cleanse, you can read about it here. Mix 1 tablespoon of bentonite and 1 tablespoon of whole psyllium husks 1 teaspoon of powdered psyllium with water or juice, then shake and drink immediately before it turns into a gooey form, then drink another glass of water to chase it down. Fasting on water really cleans out your body , but it can also make you extremely weak.
I've tried it for days and I had to give it up, because I had things to do at the time and I learned the hard way that you can't water fast if you have to do stuff! I recommend this cleanse for the most experienced cleansers , it can be dangerous if you do not know what you're doing.
There are many clinics that provide water fasting supervision and I highly recommend those , but do not do it alone for long periods of time if you're new. Juice fasting doesn't cleanse your body quite as fast as water but it is still extremely beneficial. The longest juice fast I've been on myself is about 2 weeks.
Fasting on juice is so much easier because you actually get a lot of calories from your freshly squeezed juices. It isn't like water where you get 0 calories and have to rest all the time, you can actually move! The only piece of equipment you need is a good juicer, I use the Omega and have been using it since , and it hasn't let me down.
I myself have not experienced anything more than a mild headache. If you experience anything intense that does not pass you should contact your doctor immediately. Probiotics are great , I've talked about them on several pages on this website.
I highly recommend that you supplement with probiotics. You can never really go wrong with them. They are especially helpful when you're doing enemas, cleansing or fasting because that's when your body needs the extra help.
An example would be after you've done an enema or been to a colon hydrotherapy clinic. Your colon has been flushed with water and sometimes you can lose important microflora from your stomach. That's where probiotics come in, they provide the body with healthy and beneficial bacteria that help maintain the microflora of your intestines. If you can't find one locally I recommend Latero-Flora.
Last but not least, my favorite subject to repeat over and over. If you're familiar with this website you know I never stop nagging about diet ;-.
Your diet is your foundation, it is the most important aspect when it comes to your health. If you're eating unhealthy foods then you have no one but yourself to blame when diseases come knocking at your door. It doesn't matter if you do colon cleanses, they can help for awhile but your problems will always come back if you aren't eating healthy! I'll leave it at that, eat lots of those foods, especially fruits and vegetables and you will not regret it.
And if you don't want to make your own colon cleanse, you can always buy a proven effective, natural solution, which is what I like to do. Recommended One of the best ways to keep your body clean, healthy, and functioning properly is to do a colon cleanse.
Colon cleanses can be done by just eating a strict healthy diet, or going on a juice fast. You can also buy a professionally formulated herbal colon cleanse, which has been formulated to effectively and safely eliminate constipation, toxins, and clean your body.. I've done a lot of research on the best colon cleansers, and I have to say, there are a lot of bad ones out there.
