Juicers Buyer’s Guide

Juicers Buyer’s Guide

Lies, Lies and More Lies …

OK, I'll admit it, this is not yet a buyer's guide …

I'm busy doing so many things that I hardly have time to update this site as it deserves. Fear not, it's only temporary! I'll be back, soon and I promise I'll turn this post into a proper buyer's guide. I feel I am en expert in juicers, as I've tried 7 before finding the perfect one.

But while I'm busy elsewhere, I wanted in the meantime to point you to the juicer I have been using for the past year or so.

Introducing he HUROM 100!

Watch this and admit you're impressed.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C

Vitamin C

Analysis of 437 human blood samples has shown that when the plasma-reduced ascorbic acid level (VITAMIN C) falls below 1 mg/100 ml, the whole blood histamine level increases exponentially as the ascorbic acid level decreases. When the ascorbic acid level falls below 0.7 mg/100 ml, there is a highly significant increase in the blood histamine level. Oral administration of ascorbic acid (1 g daily for 3 days) to 11 selected volunteers resulted in a reduction of the blood histamine level in every instance.

Histamine and ascorbic acid in human blood

From Rochelle Cocco

One gram of Vitamin C should not be taken all at once. Taken in large amounts, Vitamin C has a very short half life. It gets taken out by the kidneys and excreted almost immediately.

In the article above, 0.5 gram of Vitamin  C was taken twice a day. Extended release would be better.

At very high levels Vitamin C becomes a mast cell degranulator (I had read that about a month ago and after doing some math figured out that the concentration that caused degranulation was higher than normal levels that could be reached with most supplements. I have to find the reference for this.).

When there's very low levels of Vitamin C, the kidneys recognize that and excretion goes down to nil. That's why it takes so long for scurvy to occur even though there's no intake of Vitamin C in the diet for months.

Fat, Sick And Nearly Dead

Fat, Sick And Nearly Dead

If you have any juicing questions after watching the movie, head for the Juicing and Juice Fasting forum and ask away.

Webmaster note: This is a life-changing video, a real must-watch! It is a very entertaining, inspiring feature-length (01:37) documentary. It really started me on my way to become healthy again.

Update 1:  Sorry, the full-length movie was removed from YouTube as it was only posted for a limited period. I have therefore replaced the full-length movie with the movie trailer. It is still very much a top-of-the-list, must-see documentary. If you are living in the US, you can watch it on Netflix. No such luck in the UK …

Update 2: Hey, I found an other version on YouTube, so the full movie is back on. I'll keep an eye on it from time to time and switch back to the trailer if the full-length movie disappears again.
