Juicing is a great way to make sure you get your daily dose of vital nutrients. There are many health benefits associated with juicing because fresh fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants that help every cell in your body operate at peak performance. There are a lot of different juice extracting machines on the market to choose from but you may want to consider a twin gear juicer because they have a number of benefits over many of the other machines on the market.
The most commonly available machines are centrifugal juicers which use a blade rotating at high speeds to chop fruits and vegetables to a pulp and separate the juice from the fibrous parts. Centrifugal juice extractors can do a good job with most fruits and some vegetables but a masticating juicer will do a better job of extracting juices, even from vegetables that are notoriously difficult to extract juice from.
Centrifugal juicers have a difficult time extracting juice from leafy green vegetables but a masticating juicer operates in a different fashion. Rather than a rapidly spinning blade a masticating machine will use an auger to compress fruits and vegetables to squeeze the juices out. In the case of a twin gear juicer, fruits and vegetables will go through two stages of extraction to get as much juice as possible out of the fruits and vegetables you put into the machine.
A couple of the best twin gear juicers on the market are the Samson 6 in 1 Electric Wheatgrass Juicer and TriBest Green Star GSE-5000 Elite Juicer. The Samson 6 in 1 Electric Wheatgrass Juicer does an excellent job of extracting juice from leafy green vegetables, it doesn’t take up too much room on your countertop, and it is a very quiet machine. The Green Star GSE-5000 is easy to assemble, easy to clean and uses a quiet yet heavy-duty twin gear impeller press system for maximum juice extraction.
There are many choices for different types of juicers but whichever type you decide to go with, take some time to do a little comparison shopping to make sure you get a good quality unit at the best possible price.
