Value Of Carrots. Carrots are a very healthy addition to your
diet as they are one of the richest sources of beta carotene. They are also packed with vitamins and minerals. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the
USDA, 100 grams of carrot provides the following nutrition value: The first health benefit of carrots we will be talking about today is their
Anti-Ageing Benefits. Carrots also contain Vitamin C that aids the
collagen production in the body. Collagen is a type of protein that is vital
for the maintenance of the skin elasticity. It helps prevent wrinkles and locks the process
of aging. Vitamin A, being an antioxidant, also attacks
the free radicals to prevent the signs of aging like wrinkles, pigmentation and an uneven
skin tone. The next one is Sun Protection:
Beta-carotene, found in carrots, is a skin-friendly nutrient that is converted to vitamin A inside
the body. It helps in repairing the skin tissues and
provides protection against the sun’s harsh rays. The antioxidants and carotenoids protect and
condition the skin to increase its immunity against the sun and heal sunburns. In fact, the consumption of carrot juice in
the summer acts as a natural sun block. On number three we got Eye Care. Carrots are excellent for the eyes, thanks
to the presence of the abundant amounts of beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin
A in the liver. This vitamin is converted in the retina to
rhodopsin, a purple pigment necessary for night vision. Beta-carotene improves the night vision and
protects against eye problems like glaucoma, macular degeneration and senile cataracts. It is also helpful in treating night blindness. A study has proved that the consumption of
beta-carotene reduces the risk of macular degeneration by 40%. The next one is Cardiovascular Benefits. Carrots contain a variety of antioxidants
and polyacetylenes which, together, provide a protective shield to the heart. Studies have shown that the consumption of
foods high in carotenoids lowers the risk of heart disease. Besides being extremely rich in beta-carotene,
carrots also contain alpha-carotene and lutein. The regular consumption of carrots protects
your heart from oxidative damage, plaque formation and bad cholesterol elevation. This is because they contain soluble fibers
which bind with bile acids. On number five we talk about how carrots Clean
Teeth and Gums. There are several foods that act as a natural
toothbrush and the carrot is one of them. One of the health benefits is that this vegetable
acts as a natural abrasive that scrubs away plaque and leftover food particles. Since stains can attach themselves to plaque,
chewing on carrots at the end of a meal can reduce discoloration and clean the mouth during
times when you’re not able to brush your teeth directly after eating. Eating carrots also stimulates the production
of saliva, a substance that helps to prevent plaque from forming. The last health benefit of carrots we will
be talking about today is that carrots contain Plenty of Potassium
One cup of raw carrots contains about 400 milligrams of potassium which is an electrolyte
that is vital to health. Potassium has the potential to carry a small
electrical charge throughout the body, which, put simply, is needed for muscle contractions
including keeping the heart pumping at a steady rate. Helping your heart maintain a healthy rhythm
is just one of the many health benefits of carrots.
