By making fresh living juice a daily part of your diet, you can look forward to:
Speed Centrifugal Juicers ~ 1,000 rpm to 30,000 rpm:
Most juicers available through retail outlets (e.g. Panasonic, Breville, Black & Decker, Waring Health, Acme, Omega 4000, Jack LaLanne etc) are 'high speed centrifugal
juicers', with speeds ranging between 1,000 rpm through to 30,000
rpm. Their main purpose is to produce juice as fast as possible, by cutting / shredding
your produce at extremely high speeds. The result is generally an oxygenated
juice that is heated at a molecular level, subsequently shortening the
life of the juice to varying degrees. Most high speed juicers require
regular pulp removal and cleaning, which can be annoying.
speed centrifugal juicers are not true juice extractors, as the resultant
juice also contains finely cut / shredded produce 'blended' into it, often giving
the illusion of a higher juice extraction rate. Thus many 'high speed centrifugal
juicers' are in reality a cross between a 'juice extractor / blender.' Although they cannot extract
a 'living juice', they certainly can produce a "fast food" juice. High speed centrifugal juicers tend to
suit busy people or 'beginners' who are happy with a basic quality blended juice.
Press Masticating Juicers ~ Up to 200 rpm:
We chew our food at about 30 to 60 chews per minute via a cold press masticating
process, thus insuring maximum nutrient availability. If our mouths were
to imitate high speed centrifugal juicers, we would be chewing at an incredible
1,000 to 30,000 bites per minute... That is rather unnatural.
Some discerning customers insist on using only 'Cold Press Juicers' with speeds ranging from 70 to 200 rpm. Cold press juicers are purpose built machines
that extract a high quality 'living juice' for maximum well-being.
Dr Sandra Cabot
press juicers are genuine juice extractors that literally extract juice
from your produce via a slow speed pressing action, e.g. 'cold press' masticating process.
Because the nutrients are preserved, the juice tastes stronger (much
better) and has a much longer shelf-life (especially when refrigerated). These cold press juicers are especially appealing to
health enthusiasts, sports people, convalescing patients and the elderly, as recommended by Dr Sandra Cabot.
Many people have been stranded in remote locations and died of starvation, despite being surrounded by various edible foods such as many seaweeds etc.
One frequently overlooked wild food that grows in abundance in so many places - is good old grass!
A major reason given for not using grass as a survival food, is because humans do not have a rumen to digest the grass properly. But there is another method of extracting the many beneficial nutrients from grass, and that is via a cold press juice extractor. In fact one of the greatest survival tools you could ever own, is a cold press manual juicer, which is perfect for those uncertain times when there is no electricity available.
During times of strikes, pestilence, famine and even war, in most places there is an abundance of grass beneath our feet. This information may just save your life one day, because although all food supplies may disappear, grass juice can keep you going for quite some time, at least until help arrives, or you are rescued etc.
One upside of living on grass juice for extended periods of time is that you will definitely look like an overachiever of the Jenny Craig program (weight loss program)! You will also remain hydrated, which is essential to survival.

One apple - two results! Juice oxidation comparison
The ambient room temperature was just 7 degrees Celsius, thus oxidation took much longer than usual;
The first difference that we noticed was that the high speed Champion Juicer required about twice as many Granny Smith apples than the LexSun Standard Juicer, to make just one glass of juice, i.e. the LexSun Juicerextracts 100% more juice than the Champion Juicer;
Secondly, the high speed juicer shredded the apples at a high speed, which caused a lot of finely shredded pulp to be mixed in with the juice, slightly similar to a blender;
The Champion Juicer cutter operates at approximately 1,725 rpm, which is slower than most high speed juicers (usually range from 1,000 to 30,000 rpm);
The LexSun Juicer auger (single gear) operates at just 80 rpm, which is an incredibly low speed;
The oxidation process started very quickly with the juice from the High Speed Juicer and soon spread throughout the top 1/3rd of the juice. Within 60 minutes the oxidation was spreading much further;
The juice from the Cold Press Juice Extractor eventually developed a very thin layer of oxidation on the top where the juice was exposed to the atmosphere; otherwise there was no oxidation throughout the rest of the juice;
After 60 minutes the juice from the high speed juicer tasted much weaker than at the beginning and did not look very appetising;
After 60 minutes the juice from the cold press juicer tasted the same as the beginning and still looked great!
Cold press juice extractors are a specialty item and usually take longer at juicing compared to high speed juicers; however, the emphasis of cold press juicers is on 'quality', not speed. While the juice from a cold press juicer can be consumed immediately with all nutrients intact, it can also be stored in a refrigerator for days and still remain fresh and packed full of nutrients.
On the other hand, when juicing with a high speed juicer such as a Champion Juicer, it is imperative that you drink the juice immediately after juicing, while the juice is still 'alive.'
Despite the oxidation caused by high speed juicers (which is even worse with higher rpm machines), please keep in mind that it is definitely better to drink a mediocre juice, than none at all!
Cold Press Juicers Are more Nutritious - October 2007 - top
Independent tests have concluded that:
Non-centrifugal cold press juicers produce juice that lasts longer and contains more nutrients,
Non-centrifugal cold press juicersextract more nutrients - in some cases double or even three times more than centrifugal juicers! (e.g. double the calcium etc,)
Juice from non-centrifugal juicers still looked and smelt palatable after 48 hours,
Juice from non-centrifugal cold-press-style machines is more nutritious and stays fresh and tasty for up to 48 hours,
Non-centrifugal cold press juicers are easier to clean, do not have large bulky parts and are a great CHOICE for juicing.
is recommended that you drink at least 250 ml's of fresh living juice each
eating fruits and vegetables in their natural state does provide a substantial
amount of vitamins and minerals, much of their goodness is locked in the
fibre which is expelled from your body. However,
you can obtain additional benefits from them when they are juiced, especially
with a quality: low r.p.m. - cold press type - non-centrifugal juicer.
you juice fruits, vegetables and etc., their goodness is released from
the fibre and you are able to drink their highly concentrated nutrients,
which are then able to enter your bloodstream very quickly and efficiently.
is recommended that you swirl the juice around in your mouth a little,
thereby mixing your living juice with your salvia, which aids in a more
complete digestion. This is especially applicable to carrots, as in their
normal state carrots require considerable chewing. Drinking fresh juice before a meal often reduces hunger at meal time.
