Who knew that the little orange things called carrots could be so beneficial to your health, especially when you juice them. Drinking one cup of carrot juice a day will provide you with several amazing health benefits.
Carrot juice is rich in beta-carotene, which is an antioxidant, and it prevents cell degeneration, or in other words it slows down the aging process. Another key vitamin in carrot juice is potassium, which can help your cholesterol. Drinking carrot juice has also helped many relieve their aches and pains that come with the territory of aging and muscle strain.
Having a harder time seeing? This could be due to a Vitamin A deficiency. Drink carrot juice to help improve your eyesight.
Finally, we all have a little extra weight we would like to lose. Extra weight could be the reason why you are suffering from back pain in the first place. Carrot juice makes it easier to lose weight because it is low in calories and high in vitamins. It keeps the digestive tract healthy and even helps reduce fat and bile in the liver.
Is carrot juice a miracle drink? We are starting to think so. It is chock full of vitamins and health benefits! You can receive these benefits by juicing your own carrots or by buying organic carrot juice unpasteurized from a store. Of course the latter is not as good as fresh carrot juice, but it will still give you many of the benefits.
Many people are surprised by the sweetness of carrot juice and like to drink it plain. Others find the juice hard to swallow. To make the juice tastier, try mixing with apple juice, orange juice, or even pineapple juice.
Cheers to better health and a use for those carrots taking up your produce drawer!
