My dad was the one who got me started with juicing.  He juiced ages ago before juice bars popped up all over the place.  His favorite was carrot juice (and he made a lot of it).  This recipe is in homage to my dad, and it’s a perfect drink make during cold and flu season when we need to give our immune systems a good boost.

Is Carrot Juice Good for You

Yes.  Carrots are rich with beta carotene, lutein and zeanxanthin.  This carrot juice provides additional nutritional benefits due to the celery, apple, lemon, cucumber, fresh turmeric and ginger that it’s blended with.

Carrot Juice Benefits

There are numerous health benefits of carrots.  They’re rich with three crucial nutrients… beta carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin,  which are important for good eye health.  The nutrients in carrots protect more than our vision though, they’re also important for decreased risk of heart disease and stroke.  They also help keep our immune system strong and protect brain health and cognitive functioning.

Health Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric has become quite a buzz word in the world of nutrition.   It’s mostly consumed through Indian and middle-eastern dishes, but I’ll add either fresh or dried to my soups, juices and smoothies for the added nutritional boost.  It also comes in capsule form for those who would rather pass on adding it to their foods.   Turmeric helps to boost our immune system, it has cancer fighting properties, anti-inflammatory properties, it’s a liver detoxifier, it has the ability to help lower cholesterol levels, and it aids in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease (a completely devastating disease).  

Health Benefits of Ginger

Ginger also gives a boost to our immune system, it has anti-inflammatory properties, it protects against colorectal cancer, it improves brain function and may also protect against Alzheimer’s disease.
