Why include carrot juice in your routine?
If it is worth including carrot juice in your daily diet ?! For sure! Below you give the main advantages of this preparation:
- It is rich in beta carotene, which is converted to retinol, one of the purest forms of vitamin A, a wonderful substance when it comes to healing and reducing redness and inflammation, Takatsu explains;
- It is an ally of beauty as it helps to rejuvenate, brighten and soothe the skin;
- Topically (directly on the skin), it can help combat sun damage as it contains falcarinol, an antioxidant;
- It has carotenes that act as a very mild sunscreen if the juice is used topically, explains the nutrologist;
- Helps maintain tan naturally;
- Increases immunity;
- It is beneficial for eye health;
- Helps lower cholesterol levels (due to the presence of potassium).
Most people consume carrot juice solely because they believe it helps in tanning the skin. Takatsu points out, however, that the drink will not leave anyone more tan. But, yes, it can help people to have darker skin by stimulating melanin in a healthier way. Importantly, sun exposure should be done until 10am, and always with the use of sunscreen ?, he says.
Although very beneficial to health, carrot juice should not be consumed excessively and in some cases is contraindicated. • When consumed in large quantities, carrots can cause tooth decay and yellowish hue on the skin. In addition, it can cause an allergic reaction in people who are allergic to birch, sagebrush, spices, celery and related plants ?, Takatsu points out.
For patients with diabetes, carrots can reduce blood sugar levels by interfering with medications used and causing suboptimal levels. Thus, if the person has diabetes and consumes a large amount of carrots, I recommend monitoring blood glucose ?, concludes the nutrologist.
