4 Key Health Benefits of Carrots - Rich in Vitamins and Nutrients

Helps Replenish Essential Nutrients Your Eyes Can Lose with Age. Cheap and cheerful, carrots are one of the easiest vegetables to grow and also very well-loved given their flavor and texture. They’re most famous for being rich in vitamin A but are also a source of folate, vitamin C, B6, and K, as well as potassium, thiamine, fiber, and biotin; combined, these nutrients provide the human body with a host of benefits, including:

  • Improve and maintain vision: Perhaps the best-known benefit of carrots, the beta carotene found in these tasty treats converts to vitamin A in the liver. This, in turn, maintains the health of the retina and protects against the development of cataracts, all while reducing one’s risk of macular degeneration by up to 40%.
  • Helps prevent cancer: Carrots contain a natural pesticide known as falcarinol, which is meant to protect it against fungal disease while growing. When consumed by humans, this pesticide can lower one’s risk of developing breast, lung, and colon cancer.
  • Helps prevent heart disease: Eating carrots regularly can help to lower cholesterol levels, thus lowering one’s risk of heart disease.
  • Improve dental health: When eaten after a meal (raw), carrots can remove plaque from the teeth and gums as well as increase the amount of saliva in your mouth, both of which can protect your gums and teeth from disease.

Outside of these health benefits, regularly eating carrots can help to detoxify the blood, keeping your skin clear and fresh, while the antioxidants found in carrots can help to prevent cell damage done by free radicals, slowing the effect aging has on one’s appearance.

Carrots are one of the most popular vegetables to juice because of their sweet taste and relatively cheap price in the store.

DEMAND THE TRUTH!

"It was the poverty caused by the bad influence of the
 English Bankers on the Parliament which has caused in the colonies hatred of the English and...the Revolutionary War."
– Benjamin Franklin

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined."
