A masticating juicer works at slower speeds, minimizing heat buildup and oxidation. Its device (the auger system) forces greens and other produce into a tight chamber, while grinding and pressing the food to squeeze out as much juice as possible, to get the most juice out of leafy greens and wheatgrass. If you want to follow Dr. Fuhrman’s recommendations and get maximal benefit from juicing greens, then it really pays to use this type of juicer.
Juicing has great benefits for those with gastrointestinal disorders, nutrient absorption problems, or other medical conditions that impairs digestive functioning. For those individuals, vegetable juice (especially the juice of cruciferous vegetables) is often useful as a supplement to a healthful diet, providing additional beneficial nutrients to promote healing.
Add variety to your diet by juicing. Enjoy the juices on their own, or add them to soups to increase their depth of flavor and nutritional value.
You can also use the Omega juicer to help you create a wide variety of other foods, such as fresh berry fruit sorbets, nut butters, baby food and freshly ground flax seeds.
