Top 3 Best Juicers for Leafy Greens

While we may not like eating our greens, drinking them is a quicker solution to gaining all the nutrients and vitamins that we need on a daily basis. Greens such as spinach, broccoli, kale, wheatgrass and cabbage are all the rage right now, and they do indeed bring a lot to the juicing table (nutritionally speaking of course).

So why not buy a juicer that gets not only the max out of every fruit and berry dropped down its chute, but one that also squeezes every single last drop out of leafy greens that so greatly enhance the healthy benefits of  juicing. Without any further adieu, we present our top three best juicers for leafy greens.

1. The Omega J8006

We recently reviewed this masticating juicer and gave it an enthusiastic thumbs for its overall juicing performance, and that certainly carries across to leafy greens as well. I mean, if this masticating juicer can make short work of stuff like pasta, peanuts and baby food, a nice juicy celery stick or stock of wheatgrass isn’t really going to give it a challenge.

Particularly impressive was its capacity to grind up and extract the liquid out of kale, wheatgrass and spinach, which were the only greens the Omega was really tested with. Currently available for $250 on Amazon, we here at believe the Omega strikes a perfect balance of price, functionality and leafy green goodness in one package — just make sure to give it a good clean after every juicing session.

2.The Green Star GS 1000

Now, here we have a far more professional outfit at hand. The Green Star GS 1000 is the kind of juicer people run health shops with. Absolutely perfect for leafy greens, the thin grassy types in particular, Green Star GS 1000 features a bio-ceramic build (to help preserve nutrients and enzymes) and a very low RPM motor.

The results produce a deathly powerful squeeze that leaves pulp tasting almost exactly like sawdust, and some truly well preserved and wholesome green leafy juices.

There is one pretty massive drawback to the Green Star though, and that’s its price, which is currently tagged at $430 on Amazon. Twice the price of its predecessor, we do consider the Green Star overkill for home juicing, but it’s a great solution for more heavier juicing endeavors where every drop counts.

3. Lexen Juicer GP27

From a juicer where money is no object, to one where it is pretty much the only object, say hello to the Lexen Juicer GP27. A manual (yes, you read correctly) juicer designed for wheatgrass in particular, the GP27 works with almost any other type of leaf as well, kinda like a citrus juicer…but for kale, wheatgrass and stuff. Featuring a very well designed wide-mouth chute, a table fastener and a long neck crank handle; the Lexen GP27 is a manual green leaf juicer that’s actually not very physically taxing to use (despite being a manual). Besides, it is $50 on Amazon, can’t really argue with that price point.

An elegant, cheap and precise juicing machine designed to do one thing only, the GP27 does what is says pretty well.

The Omega J8006, Green Star GS 1000 and Lexen Juicer GP27  are our top 3 best green juicers. We hope they give you the incentive to squeeze out a fresh glass of some green leafy goodness to help kick start your body afresh everyday.
