the King of the vegetable juices carrot juice is
extremely high in pro-vitamin A (beta-carotene).
Pro-vitamin A is converted to vitamin A in the body
depending on the body's need for vitamin A (there is no
such thing as a toxic dose of carrot juice). Carrot
juice also contains vitamins B, C, D, E, K and the
minerals calcium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, and
Carrot juice is excellent for skin problems such as
acne, boils, cysts, and abscesses, dry and rough skin.
These problems are mainly related to a poor diet and
life style, which result in an acid condition of the
blood. Carrot juice can neutralize this condition
because it is rich in potassium and vitamin A.
Lupus Erythematosus (an autoimmune disease) is a
systemic disease that causes inflammatory damage to
connective tissue in the joints, muscles, skin, kidneys,
heart, lungs, and nervous system. It can be remedied
with high amounts of vitamin A, mineral salts, and
natural carbohydrates. Carrot juice can fill the above
need of the body and protect the individual from excess
consumption of vitamin A (hypervitaminosis A).
Drinking a lot of carrot juice over a long period of
time can cause your skin to turn slightly yellow.
This is because carrot juice detoxifies your liver and
purifies your blood (a good effect), the toxins leaving
your body cause the color. To reduce this, dilute your
carrot juice with a green such as wheat grass, kale, or
chlorophyll (a commercial combination of green juices)
etc. The three 'C's' juice drink, Carrot, Celery and
Cabbage; drink at dinner or supper or both daily.
The amount of carotene (which is converted to vitamin A
in the liver) contained in carrots is indicated by the
depth of the coloring matter. The large, firm,
dark-yellow carrots, therefore, should be selected for
juicing, rather than the light-yellow ones, because of
their greater carotene content. Another vitamin
contained in carrot juice is vitamin E. This vitamin
appears in three forms, known chemically as alpha-,
beta-, and gamma-tocopherol, and commonly known as the
vitamin E complex. In animal experimentation, vitamin
E has been found to affect reproduction. When foods
bearing this vitamin were fed to animals which had
failed to reproduce, their sterility was overcome.
Vitamin A promotes growth of bones and teeth, the
maintenance of healthy body tissues, and the maintenance
of normal glandular functions. It aids in the
resistance to infections. Vitamin A is especially
necessary in the diet of expectant mothers to build up
and maintain the health of both mother and the
developing child. Fresh carrot juice should be
included in the diet not only during pregnancy, but also
during the period of nursing the baby.
