Ingredient Spotlight: Carrots Are Health Gold Mines!

market-14.jpgCarrots, orange jewels of the earth, have been named one of the healthiest foods in the world. Not only do carrots support liver function and digestion, but these root veggies are also high in Vitamin A, which benefits the immune system and skin clarity. Available all year round, though freshest in the fall and summer months, carrots add fantastic crunch to any salad, and blend perfectly into juice. At Urban Remedy, we love carrots in our Ensalada juice and Carrot Kheer.

Still not convinced? Lets talk vision. The geranyl acetate found in carrots can lower your risk for cataracts and glaucoma. Great skin, and great vision to see it with? Sounds like a delicious recipe for beauty!

BeamIf anti-oxidants are on your mind, then carrots belong in your diet. Carrots contain the phytonutrient beta-carotene, an anti-oxidant that eliminates free-radicals in your body to lower your risk of developing cancer.

Struggle with acidic foods? Try substituting carrot juice for orange juice during your morning. Same orange-y look, same sweet taste, less acidic aftermath. At Urban Remedy, we combine yams, dandelion greens, and burdock root into the mix for an irresistible Beam of flavor!
