Carrot Juice Cleanse
Cleansing can often be a very difficult and confusing thing to do especially if you’re new to this. But even veterans who are very experienced in detoxifying their body, cleansing their colon, and overall alternative health and raw lifestyles can sometimes not be sure what types of juices or ingredients would be best for either a juice cleanse or any sort of total cleanse in general.
While I won’t be addressing every type of ingredient and juice out there, I will be talking about one of the healthiest and also one of the most commonly used vegetables used for both eating and cleansing with juices, and this would be the carrot. A lot of different people have tried a carrot juice cleanse solely with carrot juice itself while others use it as an ingredient in a vegetable juice blend instead.
Let’s first discuss a carrot juice cleanse using only carrot juice. While I’m all for having cups of whole carrot juice each and every day I do not believe that doing a carrot juice cleanse where all you drink his carrot juice and water is healthy for you. This is not only because of the fact that the body needs a variety of different nutrients from a variety of different produce but also because of the high levels of beta carotene which is then converted to vitamin A.
Carrots are so rich in vitamin A or beta carotene that drinking too much of this juice all the time every day during a cleanse could lead to vitamin toxicity which is a real threat and is very common amongst people who are cleansing for the first time or simply are ignorant of vitamin toxicity’s existence. This does not however mean that I believe that carrot juice can’t be used in conjunction with other juices on a regular basis.
In fact, a carrot juice cleanse done alongside other fruit juices and vegetable juices can be one of the best means of detoxing the body. My personal favorite is to drink a mixture of carrot juice, beet juice, cucumber juice, and celery juice. When a glass of juice is divided into equal parts among these various vegetables and taken on a regular basis during a juice cleanse this could be one of the most effective and potent detoxifying beverages that you can drink. As always, I recommend if you are going to juice do so with organic and properly washed and cared for produce don’t skip good hygienic procedures as you’re concentrating not only vitamins and minerals but possibly pesticides and chemicals as well so be careful.
