Carrots

CarrottCarrots contain more beta carotene than any other fruit or vegetable. Beta carotene is a precursor to vitamin A. The liver converts it into vitamin A on an “as needed” basis. Therefore it is known as “provitamin A”. It is a phytochemical which research is now proving can help reduce the risk of disease, fight infection and support bone growth and maintenance. Beta carotene is a powerful antioxidant that scavenges free radical toxins in the bloodstream and cells and vitamin A is essential for the normal development and health of many body tissues, including skin and eyes. It is considered essential for the visual cycle, (focusing the conversion of light stimuli into electrical impulses and pigment formation in the skin. The amount of vitamin A required can increase up to 50- fold when working with a computer, watching TV, driving a car at night and reading or writing under artificial light. Carrot is considered one of nature’s finest alkaline foods and has the ability to help maintain intestinal flora. It also stimulates digestion and cleanses the liver. Carrots contain glutathione which is an important antioxidant active in the liver and participates in cleansing processes. Glutathione also helps the body recycle vitamin E and increases the body’s production of white blood cells. The alkaline nature of carrot helps the body maintain healthy pH balance. Carrots are an excellent source of calcium pectate, an extraordinary pectin fiber that has been shown to have cholesterol lowering properties. Carrots are also rich vitamins B1, B6, folic acid, K, E and vitamin C. Mineral salts include calcium, magnesium and iron as well as potassium.
