Beta-Carotene

Sweet potato and carrot juice provides you with ample amounts of beta-carotene, the orange pigment that gives the juice its color. Beta-carotene breaks down into two vitamin A molecules, and your body uses this vitamin A to maintain healthy kidneys, as well as your immune system and tissues within your eyes. A 1-cup serving made from equal parts sweet potato and carrot juice contains 39,605 international units of vitamin A — almost 17 times the daily vitamin A requirements for women or more than 13 times the required intake for men, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements.

Is juicing fruits fattening?

Is juicing fruits fattening?  What about all the sugar?

If you juice fruits exclusively, the calories and natural sugars could add up and you won’t get as comprehensive mix of vitamins and minerals.  Most veggies, however, contain a lot fewer calories and sugars than fruits.  Consider making some healthy vegetable juice or mixing some veggies in with your fruits to reduce the calories and sugars you’ll consume.  Combining the two types of produce will also enhance the juice’s nutrient content.

Won’t freshly prepared juice go bad? 

Not if you store it properly, in a clean, sealed, airtight container that you keep in your fridge.  Most juices will stay wholesome and fresh for at least 24-48 hours if stored this way.  However, some of the more “fragile” nutrients in produce may start degrading within a day or so.  To get the maximum benefit from juicing, it’s best to drink the juice the same day you make it.  You won’t be making gallons of it in any one batch, so drinking it the same day (or within 24 hours) shouldn’t be a problem.
