Triturating Juicer Health Benefits

These juicers produce more juice that centrifugal juicers because they go slower and extract better. And the liquid produced has a longer shelf life because it is more carefully ripped from the fiber. However, the most important health benefit of using a triturating juicer is that it produces  juice with absolutely minimal oxidation. Juicers that are rapid cause faster and more pronounced oxidation, which strips the juice of its most beneficial nutrients. Increased nutrients in your juice can improve your immune systems as well as help in weight lose.

While some types of juicers specialize in fruits, vegetables or a certain density of produce, the triturating juicer does all. Vegetables with a lot of fiber like ginger or celery are cut and juiced slowly thanks to the power of dual augers. Apples and other fruits can also be juiced via a triturating machine.

Leafy greens, which can be a challenge for blenders, are easily converted into juice. In fact, due to the high pressure of two augers, leafy greens are crushed so juice can easily be extracted.
