Heath Benefits of Carrot Juice with Turmeric and Ginger

Ginger

  • Ginger root contains gingerol which has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties responsible for its healing properties.
  • It can be used to control all types of nausea including sea sickness, morning sickness, post-surgery nausea and chemotherapy related nausea.
  • Its anti-inflammatory properties help in reducing progression of muscle pain and exercise induced muscle soreness.
  • The active agent gingerol helps to lower infection risk. This bioactive substance inhibits the growth of bacteria and works against oral bacterial that causes gum infections.


Carrots

  • Improves vision – they are rich in beta-carotene which is converted to vitamin A that helps improve night vision. Beta-carotene also helps protect against muscular degeneration and senile cataracts.
  • Helps prevent cancer – they contain falcarinol and falcarindiol which have anticancer properties that reduce the risk of lung cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer.
  • Slows down aging – beta-carotene acts as an antioxidant to cell damage caused by regular cell metabolism.
  • Promotes healthier skin – the vitamin A in carrots prevents premature wrinkling, acne and dry skin.

Turmeric

  • According to researchers, it slows down growth of cancer cells. The curcumin found in turmeric destroys cancer cells and also causes the cells to digest themselves.
  • Turmeric is a natural liver detoxifier. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties may help to delay cirrhosis.
  • In the past it has been used as a natural treatment for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Recent research indicates that curcumin can block the formation of the beta-amyloid plaques that get in the way of brain function in Alzheimer's disease

      I juice my raw carrots and snack on them whole too. Works for me both ways. Sometimes I want the texture instead of the juice. But I've never added added turmeric or ginger to it though. I usually juice my carrots with oranges, some berries and maybe some kale. Thanks for the tip about adding turmeric and ginger to it Gertrude!

      Great! I have also tried them in my meat dishes. Any particular reason why you do not juice?

      I do not juice our carrots but all 3 ingredients you listed definitely have health benefits and we try and incorporate them into our diet often in one manner or another.
