The Miracle Juice: Carrot Juice

Carrot juice, because of its many healthy benefits, is frequently called the "miracle juice." Many people suffering from various ailments have found that adding carrot juice in their diet has greatly improved their health. I like to make a batch for the day and store it in an air tight jar in the fridge.

A friend introduced me to carrot juice two years ago.  He was consuming a number of carrot juices a day to heal lymphoma cancer, along with a special vegetarian diet he was following from a natural healing therapy called Gerson Therapy.  He cured himself after two years, all natural, no pharmaceuticals!

Once I experienced the benefits for myself, I really got hooked on carrot juice, and so it can be quite frustrating when I am unable to source my organic carrots.  I use the Oscar DA1000 slow masticating juicer and store my carrot juice in an airtight jar if I don't drink it immediately.

Ingredients:  (source organic at a local farmer)
x10 carrots
x1 apple
*cucumber can also be added to increase the volume if you wish

* A teaspoon of good healthy fat eaten before drinking your juice will help to increase absorption of nutrients (raw organic cream, raw butter, avocado, or coconut oil)

Here is a list of benefits of carrot juice:
  • It contains the largest source of vitamin A, than any other fruit juice, and contains beta carotene
  • It provides an important source of dietary fibre 
  • It contains important nutrients such as calcium, phosphorous, iron, sodium, potassium, vitamin B complex, and as mentioned - mostly vitamin A
  • Carrot juice is a therapeutic agent used for over 150 years as an ancient practice 
  • It is reported to contain healing properties that have proven to treat varied diseases
  • It makes your skin glow. Complexion problems can be eliminated with the intake and digestion of needed potassium in carrot juice to help neutralize excess acid to the skin
  • The vitamin A in carrot juice helps the liver flush out toxins from the body - toxins that cause complexion problems
  • A cup of carrot juice promotes healthy digestion
  • It also regulates blood sugar levels
  • It helps you feel full for a longer period of time on relatively few calories
  • It improves your eyesight.
  • It helps you build a natural UV line of defense for your skin against free radicals from UV light

So...get a juicer and start juicing carrots now!  Make sure you source organic. You can add 1 to half an apple per serving.
