I am a slacker when it comes to juicing, but today I am challenging myself to juice every day, along with eating a raw vegan diet.
While preparing for the raw vegan challenge, I decided to read Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices by N.W. Walker, D.Sc. I am reading this book because my goal is to make juicing a part of my life.
I have a pretty good juicer, that I rarely use. I put my juicer to use this past weekend and I’m ready to rock and roll.
The information that Dr. N.W. Walker shares in his book, Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices, is very helpful and beneficial. He makes juicing interesting and encourages you to include fresh juices in your diet.
Dr. Walker shares a lot of information about different types of vegetable juices and the benefits you get from drinking them. But there is one juice that stands out from the others and that is carrot juice.
The King of Juices – Carrot Juice
Carrot juice is the richest source of vitamin A. The body can easily assimilate this type of vitamin A. Carrot juice not only has a rich source of vitamin A, but this juice has a good supply of vitamins B, C, D, E, G, and K.
Benefits of Drinking Carrot Juice
Carrot juice has some awesome benefits. From what I am reading, it is a juice you can drink every day. No need to add other fruit and vegetables to carrot juice, it is potent all by itself. Most juicing recipes use carrots for sweetness, but it is more to it than adding it to juice recipes for sweetness.
The carrot juice molecule is like the blood molecule. Maybe this is one of the main reasons why carrot juice is so beneficial for the body.
Here are 8 benefits of carrot juice:
1. Helps in improving and maintaining the bone structure of the teeth
2. Helps nursing mothers enhance milk quality
3. Natural solvent of ulcerous and cancerous conditions
Rev. George Malkmus, founder of Hallelujah Acres, cured himself of colon cancer years ago. He ate a 100% raw vegan diet and drank lots of carrot juice during that time in his life.
4. Helps prevent infections of the eyes and throat, as well as tonsils and sinuses and the respiratory organs
5. Nourishes the entire system
6. Helps normalize weight as well as chemical balance in the body
7. Nourishes the optic system
8. Helps with dry skin, dermatitis, and other skin blemishes
There are more benefits to drinking carrot juice, than what I listed. Just know that, carrot juice is amazing and I don’t call it king of the juices for nothing.
If you are a person who juices, make sure you make carrots a part of your juicing recipes. If you are person who doesn’t juice, give juicing a try. You’ll be glad you did!
