Carrots

Carrots are a nutritious, vitamin packed root vegetable that are extremely good for the eyes. Carrots were originally purple, yellow, and white. Through cultivation and breeding we have the traditional orange carrot that we all know of. It is a very significant source of beta-carotene which is phenomenal for eye health. Beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A which helps process light signals that are sent to the brain, giving better ocular acuity under low light conditions.

Carrots are also a great source for fiber, the fiber content can help you to stay regular. The fiber contained in carrots also help to keep insulin levels in check to prevent diabetes.

The vitamin K in carrots can aid in bone health. The properties in the vitamin can strengthen bones by contributing to bone density. There are also several enzymes that are vitamin K dependent in bone metabolism; this makes this vitamin an essential nutrient.

The vitamin C content of carrots help to improve immunity and aids in healing from cuts and bruises.

Celery

Celery is a member of the parsley family and is packed full of vital nutrients and minerals such as magnesium, manganese, quercetin, and apigenin.

Magnesium is a mineral and is essential for nerve function. It regulates a glutamate receptor called N-methyl-D-aspartate. It prevents the unnecessary stimulation of nerves. Overstimulation would result in nerve cell damage and nerve cell death.

Another mineral found in celery is manganese, this mineral is extremely important as it works with zinc and copper in bone formation and bone strengthening.

Quercetin is a flavonoid that helps to target and kill cancer cells and is important in combating Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases like dementia. Apigenin is another flavonoid that helps to lower blood pressure by dilating coronary vessels in the body.

Celery also contains many antimicrobial properties that can help bolster immunity and fight off infection.

Apples

Apples are a great source of vitamin C and A. Vitamin C is great for boosting immunity and vitamin A is great for eye health. Apples are also a low glycemic food, they can prevent glucose spikes which can be a preventative measure against diabetes.

The antioxidant properties of apples prevent oxidation, which in turn lowers inflammation. Apples are also low in calories accounting for about 100 calories per average sized apple.

The quercetin found in celery can also be found in apples, and its antioxidant properties increase acetylcholine which is a neurotransmitter in the brain. Apples increase acetylcholine production which can combat neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and diminished cognition. It also improves immunity with its antimicrobial properties. A good sized apple has only about 10 mg of quercetin so I recommend eating the apple skin to get the maximum benefit.

Spinach

Spinach is a phenomenal super food that has a high water and low calorie content. This combination can aid in weight loss by allowing an individual to take in fewer calories and its water content can aid in digestion.

Just like carrots, spinach is very high in vitamin K and it is essential for maintaining bone health. It works by attracting calcium to the bones where osteoblasts take it and use it to build and strengthen the bone matrix. Vitamin K plays a significant role in blood clotting by working with prothrombin and fibrinogen by promoting and regulating the blood clotting process.

Spinach is also a good source of folate and it has an essential role in creating red blood cells. It is also very important to expecting mothers as it fights against birth defects by aiding in the creation and maintenance of DNA & RNA.

In addition, the beta-carotene properties of spinach not only allow improved vision, but it helps the body to fight off infection and recover quickly.

Making the Juice Blend

I recommend obtaining fresh organic fruits and vegetables for this juice blend. If you are not able to get organic, then conventional may be used. I always opt for organic as a way to minimize the risk associated with pesticides and other factors.

Simply juice all the ingredients and refrigerate for up to two hours. Allowing it to get a crisp chill can enhance the flavor and enjoyment of the juice blend.

By combing carrots, celery, apple, and spinach you can give yourself a powerful, antioxidant-rich, anti-inflammatory, immunity system boosting, and delicious drink. Not only will you feel great but you could notice benefits after several months of steady use. To obtain the maximum effect it would be ideal to incorporate this juice blend into a healthy lifestyle involving proper exercise, diet, and sleep.
