NUTRIENT SNAPSHOT ABOUT CARROTS

– Orange carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which the body makes vitamin A from. We all know they promote eye health, but they also aid in digestion, weight control, and contain silicon which promotes skin and nail health – yep, they are even good for your toe-nails!

– Eating carrots raw daily can reduce the risk of cancers of the esophagus, stomach, intestines, and prostate. Plus the essential oils they carry protect against parasites.

– The green carrot tops are rich in chlorophyll, protein, minerals, and vitamins. You can use small amounts in salad, as a garnish or brew into a tea.

– Purple carrots have extra antioxidants that may benefit arthritis and heart disease.

– It’s best to buy loose carrots rather then those in plastic bags and consume them pretty quickly so they don’t lose their beta-carotene content.

Stick a few small carrots sticks a day in your kids lunch box to help strengthen and clean their teeth. Regularly eating carrots may also help encourage lower jaw development and minimize over crowded teeth.
