Carrot Ginger Juice
- 6 medium carrots

- Place all ingredients into your juicer and juice!
- Pour over ice if desired and enjoy!
First of all, investing in a quality juicer is is a major plus because it allows you to drink your juice immediately after you make it. If you happen to be a juice fiend who perhaps buys a few bottles for the week from a local juice bar, you may not realize that you are ultimately missing out on a lot of important nutrition because fresh juice oxidizes. Just think of how quickly an apple turns brown once you slice it. As soon as you juice fresh fruits and veggies, you’ve activate the vitamins, phytonutrients, minerals, and enzymes within them. If you don’t drink it within about 20 minutes after making it, the amounts of all of these wonderful nutrients will begin to decrease. So if you can, skip the shops and buy your own machine! You’ll be saving money in the long-run anyways 🙂
In terms of this glorious carrot ginger juice, it offers a wide array of specific benefits. When I think of carrots I think of eye health and radiant glowing skin because of their potent vitamin A content. Try drinking carrot juice daily for a week and notice how your skin clears and takes on a healthy glow. Some wrinkles may even decrease or go away as your level of hydration increases and nutrient sufficiency increases!
Ginger has incredible anti-inflammatory compounds and also works wonders at increasing heat in the body to rev up the metabolic process. It’s also my favorite remedy for nausea. It seriously works like a charm every time to soothe the muscles in your gut lining. So grab a glass of this healing juice whenever you’re feeling a bit funky!
