Slow Juicer vs. High Speed Juicer

13 Nov

That juicing is a trend way to lose weight you may already know. Many Hollywood stars have been attributing their lean waist and flat belly to juicing. But aside from being helpful when it comes to getting the perfect body figure, juicing has many other great advantages. For example, it is an effective, harmless and safe method of fasting.

Fasting is not purely a religious thing; many choose to practice fasting to detox their body from toxins. Consuming only juices made of fresh produce is a great way to remove harmful toxins from the body as well as to boost the immune system.


With juice fast it is totally possible to go over a normal day, which not happen when water-fasting. But before you start a juice fast, you will need to get a quality juicer to help you get the most out of your fruits and vegetables. There is a variety of juices available in the market for you to choose from, but the most common ones are the slow juicer and high speed juicer.

High Speed Juicer

Also known as centrifugal juice extractors, a high speed juicer uses a high speed spinning blade to quickly crush the fruits and vegetables. Just so you can have an idea, the blades of a high speed juicer spin twenty to thirty thousand times a minute, which means it crushes and juices the produce very fast. The result is a heat that can destroy the properties of the juice. Plus a high speed juice is quite noise.

Slow Speed Juicer

Also called masticating juicer, a slow juicer uses a slow masticating technique to extract juice from produce. It first crush the ingredients and then press then further to yield more juice. While a slow juicer might take a longer time to prepare a juice, but they maintain the quality of the juice without losing the nutrients.

Slow Juicer vs. High Speed Juicer

High speed juicer can produce juice faster than slow juicer. That thanks to its quick spinning blades that crushes the fruits and vegetables to squeeze juice out them at fast speed. But as mentioned before, this crushing motion leads heat that destroy the properties of the juice. On the other hand, a slow juicer takes longer to produce the juice, but its masticating technique is quieter and doesn’t produce heat. It keeps the enzymes and nutrients in the juice intact, making the juice cleanse much more effective.

High speed juicer is able to crush large pieces of produce, whereas the slow juicer need small cut pieces. But due to the quick crushing action, the high speed juicer is unable to totally squeeze the juice out of the produce. The slow motion of a slow juice crushes the fruits and vegetables until the last drop of juice is extracted. Thus, it has the advantage of producing more more juice than high speed juicer.

A slow juicer also produces less foam when compared to high speed juicers. This keeps good quantity and quality of juice without foam and separation. Plus a juice with its nutrients retained can last longer (even up to 70 hours) than a juice that had its properties damaged.

As you can see, a slow juicer makes a better option over high speed juicers.
