    * The high amounts of beta carotene found in Carrot juice makes it a great cancer fighter.

Also it reduces the risks of many different types of cancer including breast and skin cancer.

    * Vitamin A has antioxidant properties that help eliminate cancer-causing free radicals in the body. Beta carotene transforms to Vitamin A in the body. Hence the beta carotene found in carrot juice eliminates free radicals from the body.

    * Vitamin A deficiency can cause dryness and damage to the nails, hair and skin. Drinking carrot juice benefits many different parts of the body like the skin and teeth as it is rich in beta carotene that converts to Vitamin A in the body . 

* Moreover the cleansing effect   of   Vitamin A is extremely beneficial for the liver. So drinking carrot juice not only cleanses your liver but also tones your digestion.

 * Also Vitamin A reduces fat and bile in the liver. However, to get the maximum benefits of Vitamin A, it is advisable to drink carrot juice regularly as the liver can store Vitamin A.
