Where would juicing be today without our friendly orange root vegetable, the carrot?! Carrot has been juiced long before it has become cool to “juice,” so let’s take a look at what makes this a must in your next vegetable juicing recipe.
Carrots are full of beta-carotene, which the liver converts to Vitamin A. The health effects from the Vitamin A and beta-carotene are tremendous. Vitamin A has been shown to slow skin wrinkling and aging, giving your skin a glowing effect, and this Vitamin also turns into rhodopsin which is responsible for giving you better vision at night. And beta-carotene helps prevent macular degeneration of the eyes. So it’s true, carrots really do give you better vision!
Carrots also have a cleansing effect on the liver and digestive system, and help to prevent kidney stones and relieve arthritis and gout. They also help to lower cholesterol and protect against cardiac disease.
