Everybody seems to love carrot juice. Nicely chilled in the summer, pure pleasure, not to mention plentitude of benefits...

So what do we know about carrot juice and its great properties...? Yummie, most definitely. Great for you? You betcha...

But do you know specifically?

Carrot juice is rich in pro-vitamin A, Vitamin B1, B3, B6, C, D, E, and K. It is also rich in minerals such as Potassium, Phosphorus, Calcium, Sodium, Magnesium, Iron, Iodine, Chlorine, Sulphur and Copper. Did I say it's good for you? Like your own little green, excuse me, orange pharmacy... :)

It is great for your eyesight, teeth, bones, and surprisingly helps to normalize weight. Raw carrot juice therapy is purportedly excellent treatment for cancers, and ulcers, and great nourishing agent for the whole nervous system. Surprisingly carrot juice contains insulin like compound that makes it beneficial even for diabetics.

Carrot juice is a great base for many different juices, even though many people prefer to load up on greens mostly, do not underestimate the powerful combinations of carrot juice. For example combination with celery is an excellent electrolyte balancer as it is very rich in Sodium and potasium (to get this therapeutic effect you do have to drink it in larger amounts though, 1-2 quarts a day). This combination also helps to lower blood pressure among other healthful benefits. So to your health with some orange gold! Preferrably organic :)
