Anything prepared has been homogenized (heated), and may have unnecessary additives to keep it shelf stable, coloring making it prettier to sell, or any number of other things which are not going to be helpful (or healthful). Freshly made juice has far more benefits than anything you can buy which is not 'freshly made' and consumed within 20 minutes, when the enzymes begin to break down & oxidation begins to degrade the juice.
Maybe you will consider buying a used juicer on Craigslist or elsewhere to start more economically. Also, will you have an experienced Juicer giving you guidance? Otherwise, have you thought about learning more about how to conduct a safe juice fast before you dive in?
