What are the Health Benefits of Drinking Carrot Juice?

Carrot juice is known for beta carotene, providing our body Vitamin A, B Vitamins, Vitamin E and many minerals. The health benefits of drinking carrot are;
A good prenatal health, eyesight, bones and teeth, liver and nails, skin and hair as well as helping in cancer prevention.

Carrot juice is considered reducing the risks of many different types of cancer including skin and breast cancer. The cancer-fighting properties of carrot juice are often considered to be excellent due to the high amounts of beta carotene. Beta carotene changes to Vitamin A in our body. Studies have connected Vitamin A with cancer prevention by its antioxidant properties that assist eliminating cancer-causing free radicals in our body.

Deficiencies in Vitamin A can cause dryness and damage to the skin, nails and hair. Drinking carrot juice to produce Vitamin A is said to benefit many different parts in our body. Vitamin A also strengthens bones and teeth.

Drinking carrot juice is thought to be extremely beneficial for the liver due to Vitamin A’s cleansing effects. Vitamin A reduces bile and fat in the liver. However, for the liver to reap the maximum benefits of Vitamin A, it is said that drinking carrot juice needs be done regularly rather than occasionally. The liver can store Vitamin A.

Drinking carrot juice is also thought to improve eyesight due to Vitamin A creation in the body. Deficiencies in Vitamin A can lead to night blindness which can be very dangerous. For example, if a person with night blindness is driving a car at night, the glare of the headlights from oncoming cars in the opposite direction can affect him or her in a way that makes the eyes not refocus properly. An easy way of detecting a Vitamin A deficiency is to walk from a well-lit room to a dimly-lit or dark room. Your eyes should have little trouble adjusting to the change in light.

Drinking carrot juice, as well as eating carrots, is thought to be especially beneficial for prenatal health. Beta-carotene that forms into Vitamin A is said to be very healthy for both mother and child. Some studies have shown that when babies drink both milk and carrot juice they get the best possible amount of Vitamin A.

The darker the color of the carrot, the more carotene it contains. Many people find the taste of carrot juice enjoyable and surprisingly sweet. Carrot juice does have a high concentration of natural sugar, so those with diabetes should consult their doctor as to how much they can drink. Drinking carrot juice is also thought to be good for reproductive health due to the Vitamin E content.

Overview
Carrot juice has a particularly high content of β-carotene, a source of vitamin A, but it is also high in B complex vitamins like folate, and many minerals including calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron. A pound (454 g) of carrots will yield about a cup of juice (about 236 ml)[citation needed], which is a low yield compared to fruits like apples and oranges. However, carrot pulp is very tough; the main difficulty in juicing carrots is in separating the pulp from the juice……

胡蘿蔔汁是用胡蘿蔔位主要原料製作成的飲料。一般使用新鮮的胡蘿蔔,削去皮後,使用榨汁機或手力壓榨成蔬菜汁。很多人認為飲用胡蘿蔔汁比食用胡蘿蔔做成的菜餚更容易使得營養被身體所吸收。然而胡蘿蔔汁缺少胡蘿蔔的原有纖維,常久飲用不利於腸胃的正常消化。胡蘿蔔汁具有明目、抗肺癌、高血壓、夜盲症、乾眼症、睡眠呼吸暫停、食欲不振、皮膚粗糙等疾病的功能。胡蘿蔔汁擁有胡蘿蔔獨特的清淡的甘甜味。胡蘿蔔由於含纖維較多,胡蘿蔔汁的質量大約為原胡蘿蔔質量的三分之一,沒有蘋果、橙子榨出的蘋果汁、橙汁比例高,因此胡蘿蔔汁價格也相對昂貴一些。
