Improve Vision With Carrots, Ginger & Orange Juice

Improve Eye Vision Naturally with Carrots, Ginger & Orange Juice

Beside carrots, the best way to get a super dose of beta-carotene is by eating oranges. They help maintain the health of your eyes, skin, heart and many other organs.

Loaded with anti-inflammatory compounds as well as a number of antioxidants like vitamin A and vitamin C, this super-energising and delicious juice will surely boost your immunity! 

 

Main health benefits of carrots

They have a few health benefits that you may already know about. To shed light on some of these benefits, here are a few ways carrots may be beneficial to you:

Improve vision

We all know how carrots are “good for the eyes.” There are rich in beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the liver. Vitamin A then transforms to rhodopsin in the retina, which you need for night vision. Beta-carotene also protects against macular degeneration and senile cataracts. In one study, people who ate the most beta-carotene had 40% lower risk of macular degeneration than those who consumed little.

Helps prevent cancer

Studies have revealed how carrots reduce the risk of breast cancer, lung cancer and colon cancer. This is due to falcarinol and falcarindiol which have the anticancer properties. Falcarinol is a natural pesticide the carrot produces that protects its roots from fungal diseases. In a study, 1/3 lower cancer risk by carrot-eating mice.

Slows down ageing

Regular metabolism damages cells. The high level of beta-carotene acts as an antioxidant for these cells. Furthermore, it helps slow down the ageing of cells.

Promotes healthier skin

Vitamin A and antioxidants protects the skin from sun damage. Deficiencies of vitamin A cause dryness to the skin, hair and nails. Vitamin A prevents premature wrinkling, acne, dry skin, pigmentation, blemishes, and uneven skin tone.

Helps prevent infection

Carrots are known by herbalists to prevent infection. They can be used on cuts – shredded raw or boiled and mashed.

Promotes healthier skin (from the outside)

Carrots are used as an inexpensive and very convenient facial mask. Just mix grated carrot with a bit of honey. See the full recipe here: carrot face mask.

Prevents heart disease

Studies show that diets high in carotenoids are associated with a lower risk of heart disease. Carrots have not only beta-carotene but also alpha-carotene and lutein. Regularly consuming carrots also reduces cholesterol levels because the soluble fibre in carrots bind with bile acids.

Cleanses the body

Vitamin A helps the liver to flush out toxins from the body. It does this by reducing bile and fat in the liver. The fibre in carrots also helps clean out the colon and quicken waste movement.

Protects teeth and gums

When you eat carrots raw, they clean your teeth and mouth. They scrape off food particles and plaque just as your toothbrush does. Furthermore, carrots stimulate gums and trigger a lot of saliva, which being alkaline, balance out the acid-forming, cavity-forming bacteria. In addition, the minerals in carrots prevent tooth damage.

Prevents stroke

In a study at Harvard University, people who ate more than six carrots a week are less likely to suffer a stroke than those who ate only one carrot a month or less.

Eye health juice recipe

Ingredients:
6 medium carrots, peeled
4 small oranges, peeled
2.5cm knob fresh ginger, peeled

Simply run all ingredients through a juicer, pour into two glasses, and drink immediately.

Enjoy!
