Benefits of Carrot Juice

I recently bought a juicer and let me tell you I have been in love with it! For a few years now, I’ve loved fresh juice, especially green juice. I was always hesitant to actually buy a juicer because they’re kind of pricey and I was nervous that I wouldn’t “commit” to the juicing life. I finally bit the bullet and bought a juicer because when I added up all the juices I bought from the little juice store up the street, I could have had a juicing machine of my own within a few months! So here I am packing my juice machine home, with no idea what I’m doing. I didn’t know any recipes or what fruits and veggies go well together. I went to the grocery store and just stocked up on tons of fruits and veggies and began experimenting with combinations. I quickly learned that I loved using lots of carrots in my juice recipes. And they have a natural sweetness to them, so you don’t need to add any fruits to sweeten your juice. The curious person I am, I began to wonder what are the health benefits of carrot juice? I mean I’m ingesting this drink every single day and I didn’t even think to look into what it could do to my body. I guess I figures, ‘hey, it’s a veggie, so I should be good’. But I still wanted to find out. Here are a few benefits I found in my research.

I also want to point out that I am in no way a 100% healthy eater. I do treat myself to junk food every now and then. But I really try my best to eat as healthy as possible, especially since I’ve noticed a change in my body feeling a lot better in general while on a healthier diet. I encourage you to join me on this healthy lifestyle and get to eatin’ some carrots little rabbit!

Benefit #1: Improves your vision

Since about elementary school, I’ve always had to wear glasses. I have to get my yearly eye exams, and on this year’s eye exam, my prescription did not change much at all, whereas the previous year there was a massive spike in how bad my eyes had gotten in just one year. So I can actually say that I have noticed a difference in my drinking carrot juice.

Benefit #2: Full of Antioxidants

The antioxidants contained in carrots help protect against cancer, improve brain function, and decreases the risk of heart disease and stroke

Benefit #3: Helps increase skin healing.

This is especially important for me because I have acne-prone skin. So when I have a flare up in my acne, I can be left with bad spots on my face. Carrot juice helps with skin healing quicker and better.

Benefit #4: Regularizes menstruation

I honestly had no idea that carrot juice helps with improving or regularizing menstruation, but I noticed the past couple months that my cramp pains have significantly reduced. I usually have such debilitating cramps that I have to stay home and basically be in bed all day. I literally had to call off work or leave work to go home and deal with the pain. No amount of Advil would relieve the pain. Then unknowingly, I started on my health kick and started drinking at least a few carrot juices per week. I noticed my cramps were barely noticeable. This benefit of carrot juice has been life changing for me.

Benefit #5: Excellent source of Calcium

I grew up believing that you can only get Calcium from milk. As I grew up, I started to dislike milk more and more. I guess my tastebuds changed over time. I really do not drink milk, except for a small splash in my coffee. Once I started making my own carrot juice at home and did research on what I was putting into my body, I was so happy to discover that carrots are an incredible source of calcium which is essential to bone health and bone growth.

I hope this information was helpful for you and it inspires you to try something new, like carrot juice. Please subscribe on the right hand side. All you need is your email and it’ll be a huge help for me as I’m still working on growing my blog. Thank you in advance for your support! xo

  1. Wow! I didn’t know carrot juice can do all those things! I have also used glasses for years and usually my eye sight gets worse every years that passes! Also, I have acne-prone skin as well and I am always up to helping my skin in any way! Do you have any favorite carrot juice recipes that you have a blog post on?

    1. Hi Stevie! Yea, I feel your pain. I’ve worn glasses since about 4th grade and my sight has gotten worse with every passing year. The last few years were exponentially worse. Then here comes carrot juice saving the day lol! I will for sure be sharing a blog post on my favorite carrot juice recipes. I have a few that I’ll be sharing 😉 Thanks so much for visiting!

    1. Hi Nina, yes it has been life changing in the best way possible! I couldn’t believe it. All the years, nothing else worked and who knew something natural would be the best thing for me haha! Thanks so much for visiting 🙂 xo

    1. Hey Faith!!! Yes, I got curious because I was drinking so much carrot juice I was like “what am I doing to my body?” haha. Turns out it was so much good coming out of it! I’m going to be sharing some carrot juice recipes soon on the blog! 🙂

  2. Ugh!! So damn jealous! I used to have one and my hubby and I have the tendency to pick up and move often, so it’s one of the thingsI I’ve let go without buying again. Especially because it can take up so much dang space. I miss the days of putting a big bowl of fruits and veggies in the fridge at night and then waking up and making a big pitcher of healthy goodness!

    1. It’s been amazing! Hopefully y’all can get another one? I always see juicers in great condition on Craigslist or OLX! Thanks so much for visiting!
