CarrotCarrots should be considered a goldmine of natural vitamins and nutrients. Among other raw vegetable juices, carrot juice is an absolute leader in the context of the variety of its therapeutic effects, the contents of useful elements and its compatibility with other juices or foods. Nutritional and therapeutic values of carrot juice were discovered by the health practitioners of early European civilizations. Carrots originate from the Mediterranean region, where this vegetable was used by the Ancient Greeks since the 20th century B.C. They loved drinking carrot juice for its excellent cleansing effects and, in addition, it was considered a good remedy for constipation and physical exhaustion.

As we all know, no other vegetable contains as much beta-carotene as carrots. In our body, beta-carotene is  converted into Vitamin A, which assists in improving our eyesight and the functioning of our immune system, strengthening our bones and teeth, preventing possible problems with the functioning of the thyroid glad. Vitamin A also has positive effects on our hair, nails and skin. Besides, this Vitamin is associated with good cleansing effects: it can clean our liver from fat and other unnecessary elements. However, for receiving maximum results for the liver, it is necessary to drink carrot juice on a regular basis.

Raw CarrotsThe list of useful microelements and nutrients which are contained in carrots is really very impressive. Along with the mentioned beta-carotene, it includes also Vitamins C, B, E, D and K, proteins, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, aluminum, sodium, manganese, iron, copper and a lot of other minerals. Carrots contain great amounts of nicotine acid, which is important for metabolism of fats and lipids. The vegetable is a great source of natural magnesium, which assists in decreasing bad cholesterol levels in the body, helps to relieve spasms and strengthen our blood vessels.

Carrot juice has very good anti-inflammatory, anti-cancerous and anti-aging properties. Carotene is a known anti-oxidant, which can prevent degenerative processes in the cells and has great anti-aging effects. The compounds containing in carrot juice also have antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties. That is why it can be effective to treat wounds and insect bites with some carrot juice, which in such case will also bring some slight relief for pain and help to avoid swelling. Also, drinking raw carrot juice can be helpful for lowering the symptoms of stresses and normalizing the function of your digestive system.

Carrot JuiceMany specialists underline that mixing carrot juice with other fruit or vegetable juices can substantially boost therapeutic effects of these natural remedies. For example, adding some spinach juice to a glass of your carrot juice can help you to refresh your mind, calm down and improve your sleep. Also, this mixture has very good cleansing properties and can relieve the symptoms of constipation. It is recommended to mix carrot juice with beetroot juice or with the juice received from various berries: such drink will be a great tonic, which can also provide you with your daily doze of Vitamin C.

Drinking carrot juice is extremely beneficial for pregnant women and young children. Vitamins A and E are very important for normal development of the fetus. Since carrot juice has good amounts of natural sugar, the majority of children like drinking it. For your little one, you can mix carrot juice with some orange juce or a little of lime juice, and your child will receive a healthy doze of all useful microelements and nutrients, as well as have a better appetite and lower risks of having a cold or a flu.  Always remember that two glasses of fresh carrot juice a day can substantially improve the overall health of you and all the members of your family.

    I get the 10 lb. bags, which fit in the fridge. But I don’t juice them. We just cook them and eat them raw. I buy the carrot juice. If you had a good old fashioned root cellar, I’m sure they’d stay good for a while. I wouldn’t be able to keep them in my house that long without the fridge.

    Vitamins A and E are fat soluble. Therefore, unless you mix in some oil with the carrot juice, will be of no benefit to the carrot juice drinker.

    My dad told me about drinking carrot juice, and after I tried a taste of his, I began drinking it myself. I had just read an article in Good Housekeeping about lack of certain vitamins contributing to dry skin, which I had been suffering from, and after drinking the carrot juice for a couple weeks, have noticed a significant difference in skin, and hair! Also, helped my constipation, feel fuller so eating less (Yay!), and more energetic. This will be a ritual for me from now on!

    I am 53 (and still have to show my ID!). Part of my New Year’s resolutions was to change my eating habits and get the weight off. Decided to create my own “V8” juice, which consists of a bag of carrots, few stalks of celery, couple of red tomatoes, a little parsley, a garlic clove, piece of green bell pepper. I also add a pinch of cayenne pepper and little ground flaxseed. Shake it up and pour. Delicious! Makes about a quart. I drink 2-4 4oz glasses throughout the day. I also walk on my treadmill now about 15-20 minutes a day, and have increased my water intake (4 16oz bottles a day). The weight is pouring off and my energy level is through the roof! No wonder Bugs Bunny was so cool and outsmarted everyone…those carrots!! LOL

    I used to have an Urticaria and has been taking medicines (anti-histamine) all the time. I cannot eat foods that can trigger it. Then I started drinking a glass of carrot juice everyday. After a month, I stopped taking my medicines and was able to eat foods like shrimps, crabs and eggs again.It’s been four years now and am still drinking carrot juice and enjoying its benefits. The only side effect is my palms’ color is turning orange…
