    Carrot juice is one of the richest sources of vitamin A that can be used in the daily diet. It also ranks high as a source of the other vitamins, especially those of the B complex. Its mineral content is equally rich, and includes calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, chlorine, sulfur, and iron.

    It's one pound of raw carrots, blended to make one glass, there will be leftover fiber, you can make a cake with it, or compost it

    Was going to say carrots are pretty high on the GI, but then I decided to wiki it and

    "Many fruits and vegetables (but not potatoes) contain very little carbohydrate per serving and thus the GI is negligible. This also applies to carrots, which were originally and incorrectly reported as having a high GI."

    So... carry on carrotjuicecrew.

    1 can = 710mg sodium / 710mg potassium

    IIRC something like .7mg of potassium cancels out 1mg of sodium.

    bolthouse farms carrot juice is by far the best, make sure u get the organic one cuz its done by baby carrots while the non-organic is done by full grown and of course...non-organic. try it out i guarantee u won't be disappointed.
