Carrots are an easily overlooked vegetable, yet they offer a lot of health benefits. One effective way of consuming carrots is by blending them into a healthy juice that can either be drunk as is or mixed with other vegetable juices.

Carrot juice provides numerous health benefits, ranging from boosting the immunity system to helping to protect the liver. The only ingredient required to make the juice is carrots. In addition to being highly nutritious, the juice is very tasty, and the leftover pulp can be added to your dishes. Here's a look at the health benefits of carrot juice.

1. Carrot Juice May Improve Immunity

Carrot juice may help boost the immune system. The juice is filled with vitamin A and C, both of which are antioxidants that help prevent free radicals from damaging immune cells. One cup or 240 ml of carrot juice also provides more than 30 percent of the vitamin B6 required daily.

In addition to being an essential component of an effective immune response, vitamin B6 deficiency has been associated with weakened immunity. One study with rodents revealed that failure to intake enough vitamin B6 impeded the growth of immune cells.1Qian, Bingjun, et al., ‘Effects of Vitamin B6 Deficiency on the Composition and Functional Potential of T Cell Populations.’ Journal of Immunology Research, Hindawi, 2017, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5358464/.
