I have been thinking about juicing to get a few more raw veggies into my diet..from a previous question i know that blending veg makes them more bio-available. I tried it & to be honest I didn't like the chew & drink action..it may not have been blended enough i dunno. My friend has a juicer & gave me one with kale, cucumber etc & it was pretty good. Anyway, my question is, have any of you guys got any positive negatives between the two, apart from the juicing takes away the fiber. I've had a quick look around but the reviews recommend this product/that product which makes me suspicious..so i turn to your good selves for any input. thanks in advance. Ps... i know i can "just eat the vegetables" i just feel a little top up 2 or 3 times a week will do me good.

I eat loads of veg but also juice a vega. If it is true that the mineral levels of vegetables are lower than they used to be (soil depletion etc) then I like the juice to add more minerals and vitamins to my diet - there is a limit to the amount of vegetables that I can actually eat. Also, I feel that too much roughage and fibre is bad for my digestion - causes diarrhoea.
I have used both centrifugal and masticating juicers and love my Matstone masticating juicer.
