Carrots are a popular choice for juicing, as they mix well with many other vegetables and some fruits. Carrots are a nutritionally dense root vegetable, and juicing them allows you to get all the nutrients without any of the indigestible fiber— nutrients are delivered to your cells and tissue at a faster rate. Carrots are higher in natural sugar than most vegetables, so consult your doctor before adding carrot to your daily diet.
