Delicious Pin It
(NaturalNews) Juicing fresh, organic produce in your own home will allow you to produce some of the most nutrient rich food on the planet which can be used to heal just about any illness known to man. Juicing allows you to consume very high concentrations of vitamins, minerals and enzymes in amounts that would be impossible to obtain from eating solid foods. This is why it is one of the most effective treatments in reversing cancer.

The key is to be sure the juice is consumed immediately and is produced in a way that extracts the most nutrients possible. There are three main types of juicers available which work in different ways and have different advantages. This simple guide will explain the key differences between them so you can purchase the best juicer for you.

Centrifugal juicers

Centrifugal juicers work by shredding the solids into tiny pieces while spinning, which causes the juice to be pressed out through centrifugal force. Think of a washing machine on the final spin cycle when the water is being spun out of the clothes. Centrifugal juicers are popular because they are the least expensive type of juicer. The problem here is that the shredding and spinning process creates heat and also allows more oxygen to penetrate the food. Heat and oxygen will both destroy some of the nutrients in the juice, making it less nutritious. With that said, even juice made with centrifugal juicers is far more nutritious than anything you can buy at the grocery store.

Pros: Fast and inexpensive.

Cons: Comparatively lower quality juice, produces less juice, sometimes noisy.

Price Range: $80-$250

Cold press juicers

Cold press juicers include both twin gear and single gear juicers. These machines operate by masticating or chewing the solids and squeezing the juice out. The gears turn slowly which means no heat and no oxidation, which produces a higher quality juice. More enzymes, vitamins and minerals are extracted by this process when compared to centrifugal juicers. Masticating juicers, as they are often called, are more expensive, heavier and slower than centrifugal juicers.

Pros: Higher quality juice, higher yield, juice lasts longer, can serve in other food processing functions.

Cons: More costly, heavier, slower, more food preparation due to typically narrower shoots.

Price Range: $250-$500 or more depending on the brand.

Manual juicers

Manual juicers can be a great alternative if you want to save some money and don't mind putting in a little elbow grease. They produce a very high quality juice with a high yield.

Pros: High quality juice, higher yield, easy to use, easy to clean, inexpensive.

Cons: Slow, more labor intensive, sometimes limited to certain fruits and vegetables.

Price Range: A good manual juicer should cost about $100.

Recommendations

If you're looking for the top of the line, very best the juicer available then go with the Norwalk juicer. This juicer uses a hydraulic press to extract maximum juice and maximum nutrients. It is the official juicer recommended for Gerson therapy. The only downside to this juicer is it carries a $2,400 price tag. If you want something more affordable, the Hurom slow juicer sells for around $350 and possesses all of the advantages of a cold press juicer without many of the downsides.
