You will often hear the words “green juice” on the internet, especially in health blog posts, and Facebook-shared articles. But wait! A new and upcoming trend is a variation of green juice – one that includes ginger and carrot. It’s different kind of “orange” juice altogether!
These two vegetables have a rich variety of nutrients that boost health, as well as a better taste than green juice (which is primarily made up of bitter green vegetables). Here are a several benefits of ginger and carrots that should convince you to add this juice to your morning breakfast or snack.
Ginger is a well-known anti-oxidant that boosts gastrointestinal health. You will probably have heard many times the folk-remedy of ginger tea if you have nausea or upset stomach but did you know that this vegetable is also good for the heart? In a study published in 2013, ginger was found to have properties similar to ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) inhibitors, a drug used to manage hypertension. Ginger has also been found able to inhibit vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation, a factor that contributes to the development of heart disease. 
Like ginger, carrots are also known for their antioxidant and cleansing properties. It makes sense that they would also be able to contribute to cardiovascular health because of these. In 2011, the Nutrition Journal published an experiment whose results revealed that drinking carrot juice was able to decrease the peroxidation of lipids, a significant risk marker for cardiovascular disease. 
Cancer affects millions of people all over the world, with morbidity rates expected to increase by a terrifying 70 percent within the next twenty years. While genetics play a major role in a person’s risk for cancer, choosing the right food to include in our diet can also be vital in fighting this risk. The extract of ginger root has been shown to have significant chemopreventive properties against colorectal cancer, especially among people with an increased risk for this type of cancer. 
Carrots also have possible cancer-fighting properties with rich lycopene content (also found in tomatoes). New research has also found further natural compounds, known as polyacetylenes, which have been found to have beneficial effects in tackling inflammation and cancer. They were also found to reduce cancer growth in rats.  A 2014 study has found that carrot intake might be inversely associated with prostate cancer risk. 
3: Glowing Skin
One of the most dangerous risks to our skin is overexposure to UV rays from the sun, which can cause premature aging and cellular changes (which is ask a risk factor for cancer). Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, a carotenoid that is both an antioxidant and a photoprotective agent. It improves skin health by preventing damage caused by UV exposure. Ginger also appears to have capabilities to improve the health of your skin. Aside from its antioxidant properties that detoxify the body and clear up the skin, a substance in ginger is also reported able to speed up the healing of wounds. 
4: Improved Immunity
Ginger has been used to manage a variety of autoimmune disorders like asthma and arthritis. For the former condition, ginger is able to suppress the inflammatory response in the airway by reducing the number of goblet cells. In arthritis, a constituent of ginger is able to mediate innate immunity and inhibit the inflammatory gene pathway that causes arthritis. 
Carrots can also modulate immune function in a healthy adults when added to a low-carotenoid diet. They are able to improve the response of the immune system even during periods where immune cells were depleted in number. 
Try the classic “ACG” – Apple Carrot Ginger – for a delicious blend that you will feel nourishing your system like water nourishes the roots of a tree. You could also add beet and/or lemon juice to add further nutrition and zing!
