The Secrets the Makers of Popular Fruit and Vegetable Juicers Aren't Telling You
Not All Juicers Are Created Equal
If you're thinking about buying one of the many juicers available on the market, there are some facts that may surprise you. You've probably already figured out that some juicers aren't as good as others, but did you know that some can actually negate the benefits you receive from juicing your fruits and vegetables? Before you run out and buy a juicer of your own, there are some things you need to know.
Centrifugal Juicers Are Not "All That"
Those popular centrifugal juicers that you see in the department stores and on the late-night infomercials are keeping a deep dark secret from you. These juicers could actually be killing the vital nutrients in the juices they create.
A centrifugal juicer whips a lot of oxygen into the juice. Oxygenation kills some vitamins and nutrients, which means by the time your juice is ready the nutritional value of it has gone way down. If you're juicing for nutritional purposes, this is a serious problem.
The other issue with centrifugal juicers is their RPMs. If the RPMs are too high, the juice gets heated. Again, heat kills vital nutrients, making your juice a lot less nutritious than it should be.
Is All Lost?
So, if the juicers are killing the juice instead of delivering the healthy nutrition they're supposed to be, is juicing a lost cause? Absolutely not. You just need to buy a cold press juicer.
A cold press juicer with a low RPM will provide you with cold (not heated) juice that hasn't been subjected to tons of oxygenation. These juicers provide the healthiest and (in some opinions) the best-tasting juice you can find anywhere.
The Price Factor
Now, before you get all gung ho I need to warn you that cold press juicers tend to be more expensive than centrifugal juicers. Plan on spending at least $250 for a quality model. Some cost thousands. It may still be a good investment, however, when you consider how much quality organic juice costs per bottle as opposed to juicing your own at home.
