According to the latest breakthroughs in Australia, the answer to this question may be a resounding yes. The studies are still preliminary but the results are VERY exciting.
Purple carrot juice is both delicious and nutritious, and we’re a little surprised it’s taken this long for someone to pay attention, especially given the frantic search these days for new ‘magic formulas’ to market. Far from magical but indeed very promising, the purple carrot is very similar to orange carrots but, as you may have guessed, purple in color, a long-forgotten vegetable which fell out of favor, according to lore, simply because it was not fashionable. Orange carrots became all the rage a century ago and purple carrots rather fell off the radar, so to speak.
Someone has finally begun exploring the health benefits of the purple carrot, however, and at first blush they seem almost astounding. The high anthocyanin content which gives it its color is part of a group of nutrients called flavonoids or polyphenols, which have powerful antioxidant properties. Aside from the possibilities for curing or preventing cancer, epidemiologic research has also found links to the intake of flavonoids and resistance to cardiovascular disease. According to experts, the tap-root of this vegetable is a rich source of many different nutrients, including, as with orange carrots, the precursor to beta-carotene, an important nutrient in fighting a variety of health problems.
It is being said that purple carrots offer many more benefits than orange carrots and possibly far higher concentrations of many powerful anti-cancer properties than most other fruits and vegetables. When mixed with concentrated Shiraz grape juice, the powerful punch of the purple carrot anti-oxidants and vitamins with the tannins and resveratrol of the grapes and skins is a strong elixir for health.
Dr. Red Neutraceuticals’ Olevine product contains both concentrated purple carrot juice and shiraz grape juice. It is quite expensive, so if you can get it at a bulk or discounted rate, all the better. You will likely find this Australian product hitting the shelves in Europe and North America more commonly as the benefits become more widely known. Extremely high in anti-oxidants (known to help in the prevention of cancer by scavenging cell-damaging free radicals), this particular brand is also fortified with olive leaf and extra red grape extracts.
