Daucus carota

Carrot juice is one of the most important juices in juice therapy. It has been used as a therapeutic agent since the days of the ancient Greeks. Carrots also form a staple part of the diet of various countries and may also be used raw in salads, or cooked.

Carrots contain pro-Vitamin A, and carotene. It is especially recommended for young infants and nursing mothers.

Although the most obvious negative effect that obesity has on an individuals lifestyle is the way it affects the individuals aesthetic appeal, this is by no means the most significant impact. Obesity is a major contributor to the development of a number of other conditions including heart failure as well as chronic respiratory illness. Because of the additional weight, and hence, stress that is placed on the knees and ankle joints, there is also the likelihood that an obese individual is going to suffer from intense knee joint pain – which will significantly impact his ease of movement on a regular basis. While more and more people become aware of the dangers of obesity, a lot of them turn to a better and healthier lifestyle by paying attention to what they eat as well as the amount of exercise and physical activity that they get. While fast foods are definitely the most convenient dietary option we have when it comes to our fast paced lifestyles, it is important to make note of the fact that the foods have absolutely no nutritional value and are simply stacked with empty calories that do nothing else than add to the fat layers of the body.

Our increasing reliance on machinery and automobiles also ensures that the body is not able to burn off as much fat as it needs to as a result of physical exercise. Because weight loss is becoming the need of the hour, there are a number of rather effective weight loss remedies that have been developed and perfected all over the world. Cabbage juice is considered to be one of the most effective methods of losing weight. When attempting to follow a cabbage juice diet, it is important to bear in mind that raw cabbage juice is extremely bitter and not likely to be an enjoyable experience. However, the flower is rich in anti oxidants and carrot juice benefits include the ability to help fight cancer.

Cabbage juice also contains impressive quantities of calcium, iron, iodine and potassium along with an assortment of very important vitamins. One of the best cabbage soup recipes is to simply wash and chop enough of the flower and place it in a blender along with some distilled water about 2/3 up before blending the ingredients together. Store the resulting juice in a bowl covered with plastic wrap and stand them at room temperature. After a period of three days, the cultured cabbage juice is ready to drink, but one must first separate the liquid from the pulp and consume the liquid.
