If I remember right, Carrot juice;s two claims to fame is betacarotene (proto-Vit A) and a whole lot of Calcium.

If you're getting the carrots from out of the bag and using the juicer to make fresh juice, you should be able to get the nutritional information off the side of the bag. If you're getting the carrot juice pre-made, that nutritional information should be on the side of the jar also.

Are you getting carrots from a place where they don't provide the nutritional content?

Buying them in a bunch from the farmers market. I was just thinking how much work it is in doing this myself with the juicer plus cleanup plus longevity. It seems to me you would get more nutrition from the real deal but then again odwalla or naked brands are claimed to be close to the real deal.

It has lots of Vitamin A and C (Alpha and Beta carotene) but not so much calcium (One serving has about 4% daily RMA) if you make your own you can control the amount of sodium in it but do watch commercial brands. Add some cantaloupe to it it helps the flavor and adds potassium very good for your muscles.

Try this link for complete nutritional information on most foods http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/cgi-bin/nut_search.pl
I believe it is also fairly high in sugar with the roughage/fiber filtered out of the whole carrots.If you don't want to turn into an "orange blob" j/k you may want to consider adding some less sugary vegies such as greens etc. (which are less palatable on their own)into the mix as well to reduce the sugar content and add a larger variety of nutrients.

Forget juicing, eat the carrot instead.

Having the sugars from the carrot without the fibre will create a surge of insulin, resulting in weight gain.

Nature has designed it perfectly, yet we find a way to mess with it. Juicing veges may give you some satisfaction, but you will get no where near the results you will if you eat the entire thing.

Drink water, eat carrots. Simple!
