CARROT
vegetable juicing,health,detox,carrots,recipes,cleansing,celeryCarrot juice is very often referred to as `the king of the vegetable juices’. It is very versatile; it can be mixed with all other vegetable juices, adding a sweet flavour, and it blends very well with apple juice. In fact, I juice three or four carrots and an apple every day as part of my juicing routine. Carrots have by far the highest beta-carotene level of any vegetable and beta-carotene is converted by the body into vitamin A Older, more mature carrots have the highest level of beta-carotene.

In addition to their abundance of beta-carotene, carrots are a moderate source of vitamin C (though cooking greatly reduces the content), and contain some vitamins B, E and K, as well as the minerals calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and other trace minerals. Eyes, skin, hair and nails all benefit from carrot juice. If you drink over 1.2 litres/2 pts/5 cups a day your skin can take on an orange glow, which does you no harm and will disappear as soon as you decrease your intake. Carrots have a tonic and cleansing effect on the liver, releasing stale bile and excess fats, and they therefore reduce cholesterol levels.
There are said to be 300 varieties of carrots in the world, with varying degrees of sweetness. The American Californian carrot yields 350 g/12 oz/1 cups of sugar from 1 litre/1% pts/4% cups of carrots juiced, and the English carrot yields only about 75 g/3 oz/% cup, so you should expect variations in the amount of juice yielded by the carrots you buy. If picked straight from the garden, try and juice as much stem as possible as this part is loaded with vitamin K.

Choose potatoes with eyes, which indicates that they are capable of sprouting, as they will be full of enzymes, and avoid potatoes with green-tinted skins. Raw potato juice is unpalatable and must be sweetened with honey or diluted with carrot, lemon or apple juice.
