When I was in school I walked from my house to my school building. My mother accompanied me daily as she left to work in the same direction. She always had a can with carrot juice in her hand and she sipped on the juice as we walked. As I grew up I wondered why she drank the same juice daily and my curiosity led me to asking her about her habits. This is what she told me;Carrots have several benefits. They not only benefit the skin but they have a positive impact on your overall health too. Carrots are a rich source of vitamins, minerals and calcium. They are also low on calories and hence they make a perfect snack.
Here are a few benefits that you will gain if you drink a cup of carrot juice daily:
Carrots are a rich source of vitamin A or beta carotene. This is important for cell renewal and tissue growth. If you drink a cup of the juice daily you do not need to take vitamin supplements.
Carrots are also a great source of vitamin A. This vitamin helps to slow down the aging process and prevents the formation of wrinkles, fine lines and age spots on the skin. It can also be used as a cure for eczema.
The presence of vitamin C in high dosage in carrots improves the elasticity of the skin and this results in the prevention of wrinkles and lines on your skin. it also helps to get rid of blemishes from your skin.
Carrot juice will also help to keep the body well hydrated. This has several benefits on the skin and overall health. Firstly, a well hydrated body will lead to proper functioning organs. It also means that the toxins in the body will be eliminated. This will lead to an improvement in health and skin conditions.
If your skin tone is uneven or shows signs of pigmentation then drinking a cup of carrot juice will help to even out your skin tone.
Though the juice has many benefits do not drink more than 8 ounces of the juice daily as over consumption will lead to a yellowish complexion. Nowadays, I walk with my daughter to school with a cup of carrot juice in my hand.
