GreenStar Juicers are made by the award-winning Tribest who have been adored globally by juicing devotees, raw food enthusiasts and leading nutritional therapists for more than a quarter of a century. The latest addition to the renowned range of twin gear juice extractors is the GreenStar Elite GSE 5050 Twin Gear Masticating Juicer, which features a whole host of upgrades compared to the original juicing line from GreenStar.
Famous for their innovation of integrating twin gears into juicing technology, GreenStar have enhanced their latest appliance with the addition of much bigger twin gears which have an extra stage, three rather than just two, with an all-new mixing stage. The Gerson Institute are renowned for their work in both the preventing and healing of diseases naturally, and they have been one of the main inspirations for the GreenStar range.
In the Elite GSE 5050 model, the pulp is mixed much more easily which allows the membranes to be penetrated more easily, allowing a greater volume of both juice and minerals to be removed. The juicer has also been made much easier to operate by GreenStar thanks to a reduction in the number of different parts which are also simpler to take apart, put back together and to clean. The body design of the Elite GSE 5000 has also been given a contemporary revamp which is attractive as well as being practical. For a price tag of less than £700, the GreenStar Elite GSE 5050 Twin Gear Masticating Juicer is without question one of the best buys on the market.

Green Star Elite GSE 5050’s innovative 3 step juicing process
The three stages of the GreenStar Elite GSE 5000 Twin Gear Masticating Juicer are as follows:
Step 1 - with none of the harmful heat produced by centrifugal juicers, the first stage involves the cutting and crushing of the fruit and vegetables, slowly yet powerfully
Step 2 - the pulp is thoroughly mixed, allowing the membranes to be split open easily, allowing the extraction of vital minerals. This new mixing stage after the crushing but before the pressing allows far better processing of soft fruits
Step 3 - the produce is now pressed for maximum juice yield. The gears are shaped differently for pressing compared to mixing, forcing the fruit and vegetable produce towards the screen which divides the pulp and the juice. This strong action forces the juice through whilst maintaining its nutritional value and freshness.
These jumbo-sized twin gears are the longest on the juicing market and have the result of juicing the product for far longer than in any other appliance; this creates a far better juice yield. This mechanism is so effective that the GreenStar Elite GSE 5000 even outperforms all other GreenStar juicers on juice yield. This is no mean feat as GreenStar were already market leaders with their juicers producing the best juice yield available! The extent of the juice yield is clear to see from the pulp which is removed, being extremely dry by comparison to other juicers.
The GreenStar line also includes unique bio-magnets in the dual gears which pulls more minerals into the juice and enhancing the bioavailability. This means your body is far more able to absorb, process and utilise the minerals which have been dissolved on consumption.
Other key features
Some of the other new highlights of the GreenStar Elite GSE 5050 include:

Convenient handle for carrying allowing greater portability between storage and use in the kitchen

Great Twin Gear Juicer
I was soo indecisive about which juicer to go for so I called Juicers.co.uk and they were ever so helpful. They took the time to explain to me about the different juicers and then recommended the most suitable one for me depending on my needs and what I intend on juicing on a regular basis. I finally decided to go for this juicer and spend the extra for the chrome finish. I have to say, the chrome finish does make the juicer look very slick and its performance is simply superb. I love the juicer and use it everyday without fail. The quality of juice is just amazing. I could never imagine drinking a bag of kale juice but this juicer has got me on the leafy greens. It is expensive but definitely worth it.
