Carrots and Eye Health

Carrots are crunchy and delicious.  They have so many benefits o- my god.  The power that carrots bring to your health is amazing let me tell you.  Before I start to add the flare of health to the eyes let me inform you on the other benefits.

Carrots protects the teeth and gums. Teeth plaque and food particles are removed just like brushing your teeth when crunching on carrots.  The gums are stimulated and saliva is increased which balances acid and cavity forming bacteria. The minerals in carrots prevents teeth from damages.

Carrots have fiber which assist in cleaning the colon out. They are also known to prevent stroke, heart disease, high cholesterol, cancer, and infection.

Carrots are known as the miracle wonder to our skin because they contain vitamin A and antioxidants which prevents skin wrinkling, acne, dry skin, blemishes, uneven skin tone,  and pigmentation.  Aging is also known to slow down

Carrots and Eye Health

The beta carotene in carrots are perfect for the eyes.  The beta carotene is converted into vitamin A into the liver and then it goes into the retina which is necessary for night vision.  Beta Carotene is so important to the eyes because when it is eaten in large amounts it can protect against senile cataracts and macular degeneration.

I like carrots, but I don’t like to eat them alone.  I often cook them with other foods are eat them raw with other foods.  They are not my cream of the crop to eat alone.
