Health Benefits of Carrots

They’re not just a low-cal snack. Making carrots a part of your diet can:

  • Keep eyesight sharp: Vitamin A protects ocular health.
  • Strengthen the immune system: Vitamin A also helps cells grow.
  • Promote regularity: The fiber fills you up and contributes to good digestion and absorption.
  • Lower your risk of cancer: Beta-carotene may help prevent aging-associated health problems, including gastric and prostate cancer as well as inflammation and coronary heart disease.

How should I prepare them?

Boiling carrots may reduce their nutritional content, but freezing them will maintain most of it. Enjoy them raw, shredded in salads, or in smoothies.
