Of all the vegetable juices, carrot juice is THE BEST. An integral and potent part of the healthy diet, carrot juice packs a powerful nutritional punch straight to the cells of your body.
Raw carrots contain all the elements and vitamins that are required by the body. Carrots are one of the richest sources of Pro-vitamin “A” carotenes. When the fiber is removed in juicing, our bodies can absorb these powerful nutrients in 15 to 20 minutes.
Carrot juice is a great base for hundreds of juice combinations.

*Eating a carrot raw provides access to about 1% of the available beta carotene, but with a glass of carrot juice, the system absorbs almost 100% of the beta carotene!
**One pint of carrot juice per day has more constructive value than 25 pounds of calcium tablets.
