Five combinations of carrot juice
“Eat your carrots!” You’ve heard these words spoken by your mom every day growing up, no doubt. Are we still dangling the proverbial carrot in front of our kids’ noses?
Well, according to several good sources and research out there on the benefits of carrots, we should be. Moreover, when they name the nutrient, beta-carotene, after well…carrots, you can be sure that the carrot was there first, and then came the cart.
Let’s explain. Carotenoids are responsible for the bright colour of carrots. One of its hero nutrients is beta-carotene, a precursor to active vitamin A, responsible for many of the carrot and carrot juice benefits that we know about today. The Web is packed with studies showing that beta–carotene is crucial for improving immunity in the body, protecting the skin, heart, lungs, brain and eyes.
When we juice our carrots and friends (such as pineapple, beetroot and ginger) at Rugani, you drink a concentrated dose of healing power. Carrots are hard at work fighting free radical damage that can cause various forms of chronic diseases. It balances blood sugar, improves blood health, relieves congestion, fights inflammation, cleanses the kidneys, protects eyesight, boosts brain function, supports a healthy heart and could be used to support cancer treatment. Carrot juice is the root of all goodness and can support nearly every part of the body!
“Root vegetables have always been renowned for their healing properties, once extracted. Root plants exist to sustain life, but the availability of the Life Force is dependent on unparalleled freshness. When the farmer is both producer and processor, harvesting at sunrise and bottling by sunset, families can be sure that Rugani Juice leaves no nutrients behind to ensure families stay as healthy as ever.”
Here at Rugani Juice, we have created a vegetable extract to benefit any family member:
Think of pure carrot juice as the wise old grandmother juice, which can be mixed with any of the younger veggie and fruit extract generations to level the optimum daily nutritional intake.
Excess sugar typical in a modern diet has an increasingly detrimental impact on your health. Did you know that one cup of raw carrots contains only about ten grams of carbohydrate and almost four grams of fiber? The fiber in carrots helps to slow down the release of sugars, in the form of glucose, into the bloodstream. Your grandmother will be proud!
Fathers are the embodiment of physical superhero strength, and our beetroot juice is the superfood no dad can live without. We like to add carrots to pack an extra punch for dads to grow stronger, faster and increase physical endurance.
These two superhero vegetables are responsible for increasing blood flow and regulating blood pressure when nitrates are converted into nitric oxide, which relaxes arteries to improves blood circulation and flow of oxygen to the brain. Beetroot and carrots both have anti-inflammatory properties, and the presence of antioxidants can help dads recover after an intense workout. Our beetroot and carrot combination juice makes for a great detoxifier and helps support healthy liver function. Both veggies provide the body with sufficient iron to help produce healthy red blood cells.
Moms make everything better. Moms nurture. They heal aching bodies. They heal sore hearts, and they make you smarter by stimulating brain activity. So too does ginger – one of nature’s most powerful medicines.
Our ginger-infused carrot juice is a powerful antioxidant, has anti-inflammatory properties and contains therapeutic and potent immune-booster compounds like gingerol, shogaol, paradol and zingerone. Ginger is comfort throughout Winter, just like moms are. Ginger-infused carrot juice boosts the immune system, lowers cholesterol levels, reduces the risk of cancer and regulates blood sugar levels.
Daughters are sweet and fair but also active in body and mind, and so are pineapples. Pineapple is a delicious tasting, nutrient-dense tropical fruit, yet low in overall calories that provides a ton of health benefits.
The highest concentration of nutrients and vitamins are found in the skin of fruits and veggies, which is why our extraction technology processes the whole skin of a pineapple. This makes it extremely high in vitamins C and B1, potassium and manganese that help prevent disease formation, improves heart health and is a natural anti-inflammatory. It also releases a good dose of feel-good hormones, called serotonin, and is a natural infertility fighter due to its high antioxidant properties.
Boys need to grow big and strong like fathers, but in a post-modern feminist era, they also need to be in touch with and create healthy bodies, sensitive hearts and bright minds.
We have made a juice combination especially for boys – carrot and pineapples together have an intense fresh flavour that is also rich in all the nutrients the rest of the family of Rugani veggies offer. The sweetness of the pineapple takes the edge off the more savoury carrot flavour.
