Carrots contain amounts of Vitamin B, C, K iron, potassium. zinc, copper, selenium, and calcium. Importantly carrots are the richest source of Bet-Carotene which one of the most effective pro-vitamin A, Carotenoids an essential vitamin.

The body converts Carotenoids like Beta-Carotene into pro-vitamin A.

If you just happen to be vegan or vegetarian the Beta-Carotene conversion is the only way Vitamin A can be sourced.

Beta-Carotene is a very powerful Anti-oxidant that functions to remove harmful and damaging toxins from our body, it keeps the body and the skin well hydrated.

Carotenoids also offer protection for your eyes by increasing the thickness of the macula.The active components in carrots also aid in treating eye inflammation and eye allergies, supporting the eyelids and surrounding tissues along with eyes can get affected.

Carrots can be eaten raw, whole, chopped, grated, or added to salads for colour or texture.

Some carrot beverages I recommend are carrot burgers, carrot soup, carrot juice, carrot cake, or perhaps some nutritious carrot porridge?

Tinned and frozen carrots should be avoided.
