Raw carrot juice is rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin E. These two vitamins are fat-soluble. That means that they cannot be absorbed by our body without additional fats.
What kinds of vegetable oils can be used?
You can use your favorite vegetable oil – hemp oil, olive, sunflower, coconut, pumpkin seed oil, grape seed oil etc. Hemp oil is of high nutritional value because its 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids, which matches the balance required by the human body. Omega 6 and Omega 3 are required more in our diet than any other vitamin, and yet our bodies do not produce them naturally. It's cold-pressed, unrefined oil, made in Latvia - one of the most ecologically clean countries in the world.
Are there any other sources of fat that can be used with carrot juice?
Yes! You can eat some nuts with your juice, or you can juice some avocado to your raw juice cocktail. Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat like olive oil.
So next time, when you drink your juice or smoothie, just add 1 teaspoon of oil to a glass of raw juice and help vitamins to be absorbed.
