Juicing in a  slow pressed Centrifrugal juicer is a must: I have Oscar 900 which still costs around £ 350 and I bought mine 12 years ago- and its still as good as it was then.  I found a a cheaper option.  Von Shef’s Professional Red Slow Masticating Juicer. It has Free 2 Year Warranty – and reports that it is a Quiet Motor and highly efficient at Juice extraction £67.99 from Amazon. Check it out.

Wild Nettles at this time are really helpful to our liver and particularly good for detoxing.  Juice Recipe: hand full of nettles and spinach, 1 large apple, 1 Lemon, 2 Carrots.
