When it comes to juicing, carrots have everything going for it. They are high in beta-carotene, which helps fight cancer, and they are extremely rich in many essential vitamins and minerals. Carrot juice mixes well with both fruits and vegetables.
Just as carrots are a staple for juicing vegetables, apple is the staple in juicing fruits. The apple yields a great deal of raw juice, and the pectin it contains efficiently removes toxins and promotes regularity. Apples help balance out strong flavored fruits and vegetables.
Ginger Root is a vegetable that can be kept fresh for months and be used as a minor ingredient in juices. Ginger root helps soothe troubled stomachs.
These three mixed together are absolutely delicious.
2-3 Large Carrots, washed
