You are what you eat. Fruits and vegetables have properties that will, in essence, make you more attractive. Along with the health benefits of eating fresh produce, you may notice that your skin has that bright glow, making you more attractive to others.

To reap the beauty benefits of consuming fruits and vegetables, stick with ones that are high in carotenoids. On the Reboot with Joe website (rebootwithjoe.com), juicing experts tell us that, “carotenoids are made by the plant and once we have ingested these nutrients, they travel into the bloodstream and are distributed into the skin and other organs. These nutrients concentrate in the skin, giving us a lovely skin tone and offer protection from the damaging effects of UV radiation.”

Fruits and vegetables that contain carotenoids including beta-carotenes and lycopenes, the anti-oxidants credited with putting a glow on the skin, are: carrots, mango, sweet potato, pumpkin, red and yellow peppers, tomato, watermelon, pink grapefruit, apricots, peaches, spinach, and papaya. A fast and effective way to consume an abundance of fruits and vegetables is through juicing.

Juicing extracts key nutrients from the vegetables and fruit into an easy-to-consume form, making them easy to absorb. If you need some guidance on purchasing the equipment, retailers point to the popular Breville Juice Fountain Plus. It's a dual-speed juicer with a specialized disc that extracts more nutrients than other choices.

Along with increasing your natural glow, juicing and consuming more carotenoids will also bring benefits to your vision health, may prevent cataracts, support a healthy immune system, keep mucus membranes of your respiratory tract healthy, and reduce the risk for some cancers.
