Which juicer do I recommend for health?

Juicing can change your life. I know so many people who’ve experienced aggressive health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardio-vascular disease, chronic fatigue, depression etc. who have turned to juicing (along with a healthy plant-based diet), radically reclaiming their health! And there are loads of people like me, who really value health (long before the need for it to go downhill); embracing juicing and healthy eating is an excellent preventative measure…

Juicing is an awesome way to get a rich infusion
of powerful nutrients, really quickly.

People often ask me which juicer I use. It can be a little confusing because there are so many different models on the market, so I decided to create this page to help.

Which juicer do I use and recommend?

Matstone: Amazing Price for its Functionality

My absolute favourite is the Matstone juicer (known as the Samson in North America). I’ve tried many different juicers over the years and this one comes up top of my list for both juice production ability and price. I like it because it’s easy to assemble and easy to clean; it really squeezes out your fruits and vegetables to maximise the enzyme and nutritional benefits.

Masticating Juicer -v- Centrifugal (the 2 main types of juicer)

The Matstone is a masticating juicer, which basically means it gently mimics the action of your teeth. Essentially it is chewing the vegetables, greens and juice for you. You might struggle to munch through 8 salads in one go, but a masticating juicer does all the hard work effortlessly, leaving you with a super vibrant glassful. It really presses out as much juice as it possibly can. The masticating type is much slower, less aggressive and has many nutritional benefits over a centrifugal juicer.

The centrifugal juicer is the most common and least expensive type of juicer. It spins at high speed to force the pulp out. The action is more wild and leaves a lot more of the nutritional content in the pulp (that you throw away). Centrifugal juicers also struggle to juice greens like wheat-grass and kale.  However, if you only want a very occasional juice, then a centrifugal juicer would probably be your best option price-wise.

If you are wanting to get into regular home juicing then I can wholeheartedly recommend a masticating juicer, like the Matstone…

Carrot & Ginger Zinger

Here’s why I love it…

  • Juices wheat-grass, leafy greens, vegetables and hard fruits REALLY WELL!
  • Slow turning masticating juicer, retaining high quality nutrients.
  • Excellent price compared to other masticating juicers.
  • You can make raw vegan ice cream with it.
  • You can make nut butters, pates and even raw carrot cake with it.
  • You can even make pasta with it.
  • Comes with a whopping 12 year motor warranty.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Energy efficient with a quiet 1HP motor.

This juicer opens up a whole new world of health, and currently retails at around £179 in the UK and $225 in the USA. If you are new to juicing it might seem a lot, although compared to other good models, the price is a lot lower. And when you think about how much you value your health, it’s priceless.

Manual Juicer (for wheatgrass, greens veggies and hard fruits)

lexen_juicer_8The Lexen Manual Juicer is the ultimate juicer if you are on a tight budget or just don’t want to use electricity. It features a masticating live-enzyme cold press process and is excellent for kale, spinach, parsley, wheat-grass and veggies. Some of my friends use this and really feel like they connect with their food more by using this one.

  • It is excellent value with a high yield of juice (and minimal amount of pulp).
  • Perfect if you are new to juicing and want to ‘try it out’ without forking out for a bigger electric model.

It’s amazing value for money and is currently retailing at around £25 in the UK and $50 in the USA.

    Great info! And especially like that you provided the link for where to buy in my country. Thanks.

    Great. People keep asking me, so I thought it was easier to put all the info down in an article like this 🙂

    Very useful to have the links thank you. May be good to invest in a manual one if we end up having no electricity for a while! I have a Vitalmix, Oscar. it looks very similar to yours Trinity and was about the same amount of money. Have you made nut butters or vegan pates with it? I have only used it as a juicer and am very impressed with it.

      Pleasure Lisa. A manual one has many benefits.
      The Matstone is actually the same as the Oscar. Infact, when I was first introduced to this juicer in Maui (what seems to be a lifetime ago now) it was called the Oscar… I’ve never seen it called that in the UK though – is yours an import? Or an older model? I search around for ages trying to find an Oscar, until I realised they had a different name here.
      I do sometimes make nut butters and pates in it, although not as often as juice.
      Remember the Ice Cream I made on the raw retreat? I made that in my Matstone juicer. So incredibly simple. I’ll post the recipe. It’s like two ingredients!!!

        Trinity, How could I forget that most amazing ice cream. I have a banana and cashew nuts waiting for your recipe! It was so amazing! I may be able to do it in my vitamix?

        My juicer is about 5 years old and is called Vital max , Oscar 900. I got it from Vitality 4 Life. it’s a silver colour but is made of plastic.

    Great article Trinity, thanks. I abandoned juicing with my centrifugal juicer because I couldn’t bear the waste in the pulp which always seemed a lot for about 1 teaspoon of juice! I’ve had my eye on a vitamix but they’re £459 last time I looked. I’ll check out the Matsone. It sounds like a great, cheaper alternative 🙂

      Hi Amy, I also have a vita mix and I got a loan to get it and also bought a juicer at the same time! I am not that impressed with the vita mix as I don’t like creamy consistencies. The soup has a frothy creamy texture if you follow their instructions and this is just using vegetables and bouillon! I do use it quite often but use it more like a powerful blender. It is good for smoothies. I think Lakeland are selling smaller ones for less than £450.00. 🙂

    Hi Amy,

    You’ll think this is funny. I use a blender nearly every day… so which blender do I have? I use a £30 hand blender for all my main blending! I make it work for me and LOVE it. Really easy to wash too.

    I can’t get away with a cheap juicer in the same way though. Just doesn’t do what I need it to do…

    with love

    Hi Trinity, I too have a matstone. I’ve had it for a couple of months now and absolutely adore it. I bought it locally in Brighton and got a free same day delivery and an £8 tray of wheatgrass thrown in free.I juice every morning and find the slow, quiet song it sings so much easier on my ears than my old centrifugal one.I love my green juices but my favourite at the moment is beetroot and pineapple. Yummy !

    It’s better to mix some distilled water when juicing. Naturally, the body is not designed to absorb the nutrition from fruits and veggies in a liquid form. I use a blender, instead of a juicer. It takes longer because you have to cut the ingredients in small pieces, but I only use small amount of ingredients and add some water. The best ingredient using a blender is cucumber because the water content and the neutrality of the juice, so you can use it for either fruits or veggies. I blend at high speed and the ingredients get pulverized. Then I use a cotton cloth filter and I hand-squeeze as much juice as I can. It yields a lot more juice than using a juicer and I don’t ingest the amount of sugar when I use the juicer. It works for me. Try it.
