Apple and carrot harmonize perfectly with each other, this is already known from the classic raw food. The fine sweetish note of the carrot is wonderfully absorbed by the refreshing acidity of the apple. Accordingly, a tasty, healthy juice can also be made from it.
The apple, with its numerous vitamins and minerals, is a true miracle of health. It supplies our body with vitamin C, which has an antioxidant effect and also promotes iron absorption. The proportion of dietary fibre pectin, which promotes healthy intestinal function, is very high in apples. With a recommended amount of 30g fibre per day, 100g apple already contain 10.1g. The apple contains valuable flavonoids, which belong to the secondary plant substances. They have an antioxidant effect and reduce the risk of certain cancers and cardiovascular diseases. They also inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Carrots are best known for their high beta-carotene content: With its 7.6mg, 100g carrots contain a dose that goes far beyond the daily recommendation of 2.0-4.0 mg. Beta-carotene is a provitamin A that has an antioxidant effect by intercepting harmful oxygen radicals. It can be converted in the body into biologically active retinol (vitamin A), which is important for vision, growth and nerve conduction. The body can build vitamin A from beta-carotene. It only uses as much of the food as it can convert. An overdose is therefore not possible. Beta-carotene belongs to the carotenoids which are classified as secondary plant substances.
TIP: In order to be able to take up fat-soluble Vitamine better, juices with carrot portion should be added always few drops of a high-quality vegetable oil. Particularly suitable are, for example, cold-pressed oils such as nut oil or olive oil, which support the taste of the juice.
Cut about 15-20g carrot and 20-25g apple into small cubes and juice with the Base&Soul Slowjuicer. Add a few drops of peanut oil to the finished juice.
