Carrot Apple Juice Benefits
Apples contain quercetin, which helps boost the immune system and reduce inflammation.1 Carrots are rich in beta-carotene and studies have shown that beta-carotene enhances immune functions in the human body.2
Epidemiological studies have linked the consumption of apples with reduced risk of some cancers, as well as the prevention of cancer cell proliferation.1 Several studies have indicated that consuming carrots plays an important role protecting the body against the development of different types of cancers.3
