Choosing a Juice Extractor

Juice Extractor - Jack LaLanne Juicer

If you are considering the purchase of a new juice extractor, chances are you already realize the importance this appliance can have on your health. Many people know that they need to increase their intake of fruits and vegetables, and even those who feel like they already eat healthy realize that getting adequate levels of these important foods can sometimes be quite difficult.

There has been a lot of research and many studies which all confirm the health benefits of juicing and many of us simply do not want to miss the opportunity of providing these benefits to ourselves as well as our families. Juicing offers an excellent way to get the most nutrients from fruits, vegetables and leafy greens, such as wheatgrass. However, juicing should not be considered an alternative to eating healthy, but merely a supplement to a healthy diet that is unable to consume enough of these foods on a daily basis.

When it comes to juicing, the first thing you need to consider is the type of juice extractor you will need. There are a lot of different juicers, all claiming to offer the best technology or some other fancy feature, but finding the one that is right for you means getting beyond the hype and understanding the basics of a good juice extractor.  Some of the most popular juice extractors are offered by Breville, Omega, Champion, Jack LaLanne Juicer, Braun and Green Star, these companies all offer excellent juice machines and a product you can rely on.

Some of the important factors you will want to consider in choosing a good juice extractor include:

 

  • The juice machine needs to be easy to clean. If the juicer has a lot of parts or unnecessary accessories it can be a hassle to use and cleaning can be difficult. If this is the case, the juicer will probably sit in a cabinet and never be used.

 

  • The juicer needs to be powerful enough that it can easily handle juicing larger pieces of fruits or vegetables without bogging down or needing to have the pulp emptied all the time.

 

  • Juice extractors tend to be quite loud, but there are models which are known to be much quieter than others.  This can be very beneficial for anyone who likes to juice early in the morning without waking up everyone in the house.

 

  • Many people are discovering the remarkable benefits of drinking wheatgrass juice, but wheatgrass can be one of the most difficult things to juice.  Not every juice extractor can handle the demands of juicing wheat grass, so if wheatgrass juice is one of your objectives you need to be sure that the juicer machine you choose can stand up to wheatgrass, spinach and other types of leafy greens without getting bogged down. It is possible to find a dedicated wheatgrass juicer, which can be very helpful for this task, but it is not necessary, especially when you are just starting out.

 

  • Versatility is another important factor when considering a juicer machine. We’ve already discussed the benefits of having a juicer machine that can handle wheatgrass, but some people don’t realize that juicing carrots and apples can be quite different than juicing oranges and lemons. If you do not want to have to purchase a separate citrus juicer, you will want to be sure the juice extractor you choose can juice citrus fruits as well.

 

 In conclusion, the best juice extractor is the one you will use.  Consider the factors that are most important for your needs as well as your budget and get the best juicer your money can buy.

Wheatgrass Juice

Wheatgrass Juice

Wheatgrass Juice

You’ve probably heard of all the great benefits of wheatgrass juice, but do you know specifically what those benefits are?  One of the most beneficial aspects of wheatgrass juice is that it’s immediately absorbed into the bloodstream and assimilated by your body.  Many people claim that they get an immediate energy boost!

Two ounces of fresh wheatgrass juice is equivalent to approximately three pounds of organic produce, in the amount of vitamins and minerals it can provide.  This is an amazing amount of essential nutrients and a wonderful source of vitality.  Drinking two ounces will leave you feeling energized and refreshed throughout the day.

Wheatgrass juice provides a remarkable source of nutrients; vitamins, minerals and living enzymes.  It is a complete protein with about 30 enzymes and most of the vitamins and minerals your body needs.  Wheatgrass contains approximately 70% chlorophyll, as well as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. 

Studies suggest that wheat grass juice can help build red blood cells, normalize high blood pressure and stimulate healthy tissue growth.  Consuming wheatgrass helps the lymph system drain and carry toxins away from body cells.  The chlorophyll in wheatgrass can help release toxins stored in cells or fatty tissues into the bloodstream, filtered and removed.  Wheatgrass juice should be taken on an empty stomach.  Start with a one ounce serving and work your way up to two ounces a couple of times a day.   Use a wheatgrass juicer to juice wheatgrass, your typical vegetable juicer will not be able to effectively juice this fibrous grass.   Keep the wheatgrass juice refrigerated and drink it the same day it is juiced.

Wheatgrass juice is an excellent for weight control.  The wheat berry contains starch that is stored energy which is converted to a simple sugar for a quick energy source.  The nutritional value of wheatgrass is so high; many people don’t experience any “cravings” that tend to lead us to overeat.  Because a singe dose of wheatgrass contains the nutritional value of approximately 3 pounds of produce, it naturally shuts off the appestat in the brain, controlling hunger and helping you to lose weight. 

Another of the many great wheatgrass benefits is its ability to stop the growth and development of unfriendly bacteria.  Rather than taking direct action on the bacteria itself, the wheatgrass juice produces an unfavorable environment for bacterial growth.  The water-soluble chlorophyll in the wheat grass inhibits the action of proteolytic bacteria, which breaks down protein into simpler substances.

Because of its high levels of beta-carotene, some studies suggest that wheatgrass can help reduce your risk of certain types of cancer.  The National Cancer Institute reported in 19 out of 21 studies, that diets high in beta-carotene contribute at least a 40% reduction in the risk of developing some kinds of cancer.  Dr. Chiu-nan Lai, Ph.D., at the University of Texas Cancer Center, Dept. of Biology in Houston, Texas has determined that chlorophyll is the active factor in wheat sprout extracts, which inhibit metabolic activity of carcinogens.

Chlorophyll is also beneficial in the treatment of many skin diseases and as a burn treatment.  Either applied as an ointment or by using a wheat grass juicer to extract the beneficial juice, the effects of chlorophyll can alleviate discomfort and minimize the possibility of infection due to skin diseases or burns.  Wheatgrass powder can be purchased for use as a topical agent, or mixed into an ointment.  The wheatgrass ointment is very soothing and provides relief to the itching and flakiness associated with many skin ailments such as eczema and psoriasis.

Isn’t it time you tried wheatgrass juice to restore your health and boost your energy?  All you need is an ounce or two to receive these benefits and provide your body with an abundance of essential nutrients.

The Breville Juicer

A juice extractor is designed to break down the cellulose barriers in the cells of the fruits, vegetables, grasses and herbs you process with your juicer.  By breaking down these barriers the abundance of healthy nutrients and enzymes are easily released and absorbed quickly by the body.  Juicing makes it possible to ingest large quantities of nutrients that would otherwise be impossible given the massive amounts of food you would need to consume.  These vital nutrients are then made available immediately to the cells in your body when consumed in freshly extracted juices.

Drinking fresh juice daily will help the body detoxify and rebuild through the assimilation of the vital life-giving enzymes and nutrients.  This inpouring of essential nutrients provides enormous health benefits and can aid in the healing and prevention of many illnesses.

When choosing a juicer there are several important factors to take into consideration:

  1. You want to receive the most juice from the produce used.
  2. The juice needs to retain the highest quality nutritional value possible.
  3. The juice you extract needs to maintain reasonable stability with all the nutritional benefits, freshness, and enzymes retained; even during extended storage.
  4. The juicer should be easy to set-up, use and clean.
  5. Your juicer should be high-quality offering you years of dependable service.

 

There are many quality juicers available and choosing a juicer need not be complicated.  If you’re looking for a wheatgrass juicer, you want one with the lowest RPM available to avoid oxidizing the wheatgrass juice.  A wheatgrass juicer is a specially designed juicer equipped to handle the fibrous nature of wheatgrass and its unique juicing requirements.  Likewise, a designated citrus juicer will not be able to accommodate juicing other fruits and vegetables.  Regardless of your needs, a Breville juicer or Jack Lalanne Power Juicer will always be a good investment and give you the quality juice necessary for good health.
