The MC always makes my skin feel great. Even as a guy I've gotten compliments from one of my GF about how smooth my skin felt. Roothie are you supplemeting with any EFA oils?? If not try try putting at least 2 tblsp of hemp or flax seed oil in your superfood drink daily. After a few weeks you notice how smooff and plyable your skin will be and your hair will have a nice sheen to it
On carrot juice I've read the all that beta carrotene is only fat soluble so I started adding hemp or flax oil when I have carrot juice. My killer combo recipe for carrot juice is carrots, celery, cilantro, red beets,apples, ginger. Add a coupla tblsp of hemp or flax oil and it make for some mighty powerful nutrition. It'll make ya wanna hug a tree .Yeowsa! ;+D I use to use parsley instead of cilantro but both for flavor and the fact that cilantro is a great chelating element for heavy metals I started using that. I've also been known to use spinach. If I happen to have all 3 handy I'll throw a little of each in to cover the green side of things. In the summer a really refreshing and nutritious "green juice" juice is celery ,cucumber, one or all of the above mentioned greens, apples (green) and the ever present ginger. Ginger always ads a little spicy kick and it's great for digestion.
My #1 recommendation for folks looking to amp up their nutritional intake and good health in general is a juicer. Packaged juices have to be pasteurized (heated) and that destroys the live enzymes not to mention just plain losing nutritional value in the processing and storage. Then is the flavah. As much as I love carrot juice I have never found a prepackaged carrot juice that tastes even remotely close to what fresh made tastes like and I ain't talking just little different. We're talking worlds apart and for me personally I can't even drink any canned carrot juice cause I can't stand the taste.
Roothie look in your local Craigs list. You should be abe to find some used juicers pretty cheap. Also look in healthfood store bulletin boards. That's where I found my current Omega juicer that normally sells for like $250 and I bought mine in like new condition for $100. If you have any questions about brands types etc. E me direct and I'll be happy to advice you the best I can.
