Benefits of my morning carrot juice routine

Carrots. The bright orange root vegetable that makes think of Bugs Bunny. Joke aside, carrots are a rich source of nutrients and minerals so drinking carrot juice daily is a habit that everyone should start, as it is both healthy and tasty. I alternate drinking various vegetable/fruit juices around 20 minutes before eating my breakfast to help stimulate digestion and let me tell you, carrot juice is one of the better tasting ones! I used to make my juices myself but this Schneekoppe version is just so much easier to use.

As we all know, carrots contain vitamin A in the form of beta carotene and can considerably boost eye health. The liver converts beta-carotene into vitamin A and then this compound goes to the retina and becomes rhodopsin, a substance necessary to healthy night-vision. Aside from that, carrots are a high source of antioxidants that can help reduce your risk of various forms of temporary illnesses and serious chronic diseases. Higher intake of carrots also decreases the risk of cadriovascular disease, helps protect against cancer and the potassium present in carrot juice can reduce cholesterol levels. For those of you who like to party, the good new is that carrot juice cleanses and detoxifies the liver, so it’s a great ‘morning after’ drink to cure that awful hangover.

Especially for us ladies, drinking carrot juice is not only about our health but also about beauty benefits. Since it is high in essential oils, it helps prevent acne. The beta caroten helps reduce sunburn and increase the skin’s resistance towards sun damage. It also reduces cell degeneration and slows down the aging of the body by improving the amount of collagen in the skin and hence reducing the visible signs of aging like sagging skin and wrinkles so YAAAAY for carrots!!!
