Taking care of a whole life might be stressful, particularly when choosing what to eat. But with ABC juice, you can never go wrong because it contains a lot of essential and safe nutrients. 

 

 

What is ABC juice?

ABC juice, or miracle juice, is made from apples, beetroots, and carrots. This beverage is rich in nutrients and is suitable for both mother and child. 

 

 

Constituents of ABC juice

 

 ABC juice is an abbreviation of apple, beetroot, and carrot. These three fruits and vegetables are the only components of ABC juice. Here are reasons why you should drink ABC juice:

 

Apples have a lot of dietary fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin C. These nutrients can help stabilise blood sugar levels, strengthen immunity, and avoid constipation. 

 

Beets are rich in essential minerals like folate, magnesium, and iron that can lower the risk of congenital disabilities, improve blood circulation, and increase energy levels.

 

Carrots contain Vitamin A, iron, and potassium which can help with fetal development, improve vision, and control blood pressure. 

 

 

 

 

Benefits of ABC juice 

 

  • It helps to boost immunity: As a pregnant woman, you are more prone to infections and diseases because pregnancy suppresses the activities of your immune system. Drinking ABC juice may help strengthen your body's defensive system and make it robust and healthy, making it a great supplement to any prenatal diet. Antioxidants such as vitamin E (found in apples) and beta-carotene (found in carrots) can help shield your body from dangerous free radicals that can lead to oxidative stress.

 

 

  • Vitamins and minerals: ABC juice contains minerals including zinc, copper, folate, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, sodium, phosphorus, and niacin, and also vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, and K. Just one glass will go a long way in providing these essential nutrients and vitamins in a day.

 

 

  • Helps to reduce inflammation: Vitamin C and beta-carotene in this juice can help relieve inflammation through detoxification and prevent oxidative stress. It also helps improve skin health by removing dirt and toxins from your system, restoring your natural complexion and glow.

 

 

  • It aids digestion: When it comes to enhancing digestion during pregnancy, ABC juice works very well. The high fiber content of beetroots and carrots is well-known for preventing constipation and regulating bowel motions. Apples also contain enzymes that aid in the breakdown of food and the absorption of nutrients. Regular consumption of ABC juice can promote a healthy digestive tract and reduce discomfort related to digestion.
  •  

 

  • Helps to prevent gestational diabetes: A frequent pregnancy condition that can cause several health problems for you and your unborn baby is gestational diabetes. Introducing ABC juice into your everyday life is a strategy to control gestational diabetes effectively. By doing this, it may be possible to avoid congenital disabilities and premature delivery, two issues linked to gestational diabetes.
