Just Carrots carrot juice
Carrot juice nutritional value.
Carrot juice contains a high content of Beta-Carotene, a precursor to Vitamin A, which is converted to Vitamin A in the body. It is considered essential for the visual cycle (focusing the conversion of light stimuli into electrical impulses), pigment formation in the skin (browning), and as an antioxidant in the cells. The level of Vitamin A required by the eyes can increase up to fifty-fold when working with a computer, watching television, driving a car at night, and reading and writing under artificial light, all of which place great demands on the eyes.
