- Carrot - Carrots are nutrient-rich and contain beta-carotene, vitamins, and minerals. Beta carotene is an antioxidant and improves cognitive function. The beta carotene has health benefits, including support for eye health and can reduce the risk of eye problems. Whole or peeled carrots are fine to use in the juice recipe.
- Orange - Oranges are high in vitamin C and is linked to a lower risk of illness, including heart disease and cancer. Additionally, oranges help in lowering blood sugar, bad cholesterol, and inflammation. Navel and Valencia oranges are the most common year round, but any oranges are fine to use.
- Ginger - Ginger is a powerful root that is loaded with nutrients. It can aid digestion, reduce nausea, and help fight the common cold. It also helps reduce cold and flu symptoms. Fresh ginger juice can also be used to make ginger tea and ginger shots. Freeze ginger juice in an eye cube tray and add it to water or smoothies for extra nutrients and flavor.
