Who doesn't want to make sure their eyes keep doing their job, their skin keeps glowing, and their body keeps viruses and harmful bacteria away? Find out about all the Carrot Juice Benefits for your health.
We drink juices every morning. We experienced a dramatic difference in our health and daily routine since we adopted the juicing habit.
Carrots and celery might seem like an unlikely combo, but when you blend them, they taste just right. Many people have a hard time drinking vegetables in juice, so this is a good option for those who dislike the pulp in their vegetable drinks.
The juice does yield quite a bit, but drinking it is a great way to pack your body with nutrients.
Drinking celery and Carrot juice has been known for years as an energy booster but drinking it is just as beneficial and is highly nutritious. You can drink this any time of the day, whether drinking it alone or as a mix with other juices.
The carrot and celery combo are a little sweet due to the carrots, but drinking it is an excellent way to get in your daily servings of vegetables.
Many people have been drinking or eating vegetables in juice form for years, and drinking celery and carrot juice is one of the most popular out there.
If you drink this on its own, you only need to add a little ice to thin it out, but drinking this as a mix with fruits is also good.
We add apples and ginger for extra sweetness and zing! Apple juice is naturally sweet and full of antioxidants!
Your body really rewards you with optimal health and well-being.

🔪 How to Make Carrot Apple and Celery Juice
Carrot juice and celery juice work perfectly in any juice recipe. They complement well because carrots are creamier, sweeter, and denser than the more watery and fresh celery.
Step 1: wash and rinse your produce
Depending on your Juicer, you may be able to throw roughly chopped fruits and vegetables in the Juicer or even without cutting them; or just roughly cut your produce in big chunks. If not, take out the apple's core and the carrots' tops. You don't need to peel carrots.
I usually chop off the hardtops of the carrots but do not peel them.
Step 2: Juice Your ingredients
Most juicers work the same way: you insert the fruit or veggie into a chute, and the freshly squeezed juice comes out. However, this may vary depending on your juicer. Just follow your juicer's instructions.
Start introducing fruits and veggies, combining the leaves and solids to prevent the juicer from getting stuck.
If you want to thin the juice a little, you can add about half a cup of water in the juicer aperture, so it drags some of the rest of the fruit and veggies.
You may want to add some lemon drops to add acidity. Add ice if you like to have it cold.
Step 3: Store (if not drinking immediately)
You can reserve the carrot juice for 24 hours in a mason jar.

🥕 Absorption of carotenoids present in your carrots
Our body's absorption of the carotenoids present in vegetables like carrots and spinach is positively affected by soluble fats. This means that adding some healthy fats to your breakfast will enhance the absorption of your juice nutrients. Think almonds.
Make sure to eat carrots and spinach with some healthy oil such as avocados, coconut oil when cooked, or extra virgin oil in your salads to enhance the absorption of the carotenoids.
We like eating about five organic almonds with our morning carrot juice; this provides extra fiber, good oils, and energy sources first thing in the morning!

Blood pressure and carrot celery Juice
Carrot celery juice is one of the most popular juice recipes for people with high blood pressure.
When drinking carrot juice, you can lower blood pressure. This is due to the high content of potassium. High levels of potassium are associated with low blood pressure.
Celery is a well-known natural diuretic. It removes excess fluid from the body and has a mild blood pressure-lowering effect.
Juice is also great for people on a weight loss regime, as it has celery that helps fight the body's inflammation, it has no added sugar, and is low in calories.

🍎 Apples health benefits
Apples are rich in phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals. They contain antioxidants, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory properties mainly due to those flavonoids and polyphenols.
As a food, apples should be part of everyone's diet, helping prevent heart disease, cancer, and other conditions like diabetes or arthritis.
Apples are high in dietary fiber, and have zero fat or cholesterol. They also contain many Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and potassium.
The tannins found in apples fight free radicals that can lead to cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses.
Today, you can find apples year-round, but they are at their best in the fall season. That's when we eat apple pies and make tons of applesauce!
🧃 Why Juicing?
Juicing for health is a great way to get your fair share of vitamins in your body efficiently and fast, first thing in the morning. However, It would be challenging to get all the nutrients of these ingredients in the morning, by chewing celery, apple, carrots, and ginger.

Hi, I love your posts and your recipes. I never knew you can do so much with carrot. Being a hypertensive person it is a great relief to see or have an alternative to high blood pressure drugs. I would like you to recommend other vegetables and fruits that can also help at times like this. Thank you.
Thank you for your kind words and your interest in finding alternative ways to support your health. Before going further, it's essential to consult with your healthcare provider for any significant dietary changes, especially if they might interact with your current medications or health conditions.
That said, incorporating certain fruits, vegetables, and other plant-based foods into your diet can help support heart health and potentially reduce blood pressure. Here are some great choices:
1. Berries: Particularly strawberries and blueberries, are packed with antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins. These have been linked to reduced blood pressure in individuals with hypertension.
2. Beets: These root veggies are high in nitric oxide, which can help lower systolic blood pressure. Try a beets juice.
3. Sweet Potatoes: These are powerhouses of magnesium, potassium, and fiber, all beneficial for reducing blood pressure. Here's a sweet potato juice.
4. Leafy Greens: Cabbage, collard greens, spinach, kale, and others are high in nitrates, offering benefits for blood pressure control.
5. Whole Grains: Especially oatmeal, contains beta-glucan fiber, potentially lowering both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
6. **Pistachios**: One study found that these nuts can help reduce blood pressure during stressful times. Remember, it's best to choose unsalted versions to maintain their health benefits.
7. Bananas: One medium-sized banana offers a substantial amount of potassium, a mineral known for its blood pressure-lowering properties. Other potassium-rich foods include beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, and avocados.
8. Kiwifruit: A study found that eating three kiwifruits daily could significantly lower blood pressure. Kiwifruit delicious chopped up in fruit salad or sprinkled on vegan yogurt.
Remember, these foods are meant to supplement and not replace your prescribed medications. Always talk to your healthcare provider before making any significant changes to your diet or health routine. Stay healthy and happy!
What helps for fibromyalgia
While no specific plant-based foods have been proven to cure fibromyalgia, a balanced and nutritious diet can support overall health and potentially alleviate some symptoms. Here are some plant-based foods that may be beneficial for individuals with fibromyalgia:
1. Fruits and vegetables: Include a wide variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet as they are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Berries, leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli and cauliflower), and colorful produce like bell peppers can provide valuable nutrients and support your overall well-being.
2. Whole grains: Opt for whole grains such as quinoa, brown rice, oats, and whole wheat bread. These foods are a good source of complex carbohydrates, which can provide sustained energy and help regulate blood sugar levels.
3. Legumes and beans: Incorporate legumes and beans like lentils, chickpeas, black beans, and kidney beans into your meals. They are excellent sources of plant-based protein, fiber, and various nutrients.
4. Nuts and seeds: Almonds, walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, and hemp seeds are examples of nutrient-dense options. They provide healthy fats, protein, and important micronutrients like omega-3 fatty acids.
5. Healthy fats: Include sources of healthy fats in your diet, such as avocados, olives, coconut oil, and extra virgin olive oil. These fats can contribute to reducing inflammation in the body.
6. Herbal teas and spices: Some individuals with fibromyalgia find relief from symptoms by consuming herbal teas like chamomile, peppermint, or ginger tea. Additionally, spices like turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon have anti-inflammatory properties that may help manage pain and inflammation. You may want to give this infusion a try.
It's important to note that the impact of diet on fibromyalgia symptoms can vary from person to person. It may be helpful to consult with a registered healthcare professional who can provide personalized guidance and ensure you're meeting your nutritional needs while considering your specific condition.
