This 24 Carrot Mocktail is the perfect blend of nutritious and delicious. With carrot juice being one of the main components, you’re treating yourself to tons of vitamins and a whole bunch of benefits.
Benefits of Carrots:
Carrots are low in calories and carbs, but definitely don’t skimp on vitamins A, C, K and potassium. Speaking of vitamin A, it’s vital for eye health. And with over 250% of the DV for vitamin A in just one cup of carrot juice, it could potentially benefit your eyes.
Vitamins A, B6, and C also help out your immune system. These vitamins protect your cells from damage, plus amp up your immune response. Carrots are also great for your overall heart health due to the antioxidants and dietary fibers. These same antioxidants also fight against free radicals that can cause damage to your cells, which helps prevent the possibility of developing cancerous cells.
The potassium in carrots can help in keeping your skin looking young and healthy, too. It works to protect against dryness, improve your skin tone and reduce the appearance of blemishes and scars. Carrots also maintain your cholesterol and blood sugar and can often be used as a pre or post workout food, so feel free to enjoy this mocktail after a quick swim.
Plus, the addition of our Minerals and Antioxidants mix gives you that nutritional boost! It’s made with a variety of freshly harvested sea vegetables and contains approximately 74-plant based, naturally chelated, trace minerals. It also contains antioxidants from 11 nutrient-rich super fruits like acai, cranberry, goji, maqui and pomegranate.
