Carrots are one of the most common vegetables used throughout the world. They are incredibly versatile and can be consumed in a variety of ways. No matter how they are consumed, carrots offer a number of health benefits and should be added to any diet.
Carrots Reduce Heart Disease Risk
Studies have shown that carrots can reduce the risk of heart disease. Carrots are high in antioxidants, which work to reduce cholesterol levels. Elevated cholesterol levels are a risk factor for heart disease. One study determined that eating seven ounces of carrots a day for three weeks can reduce cholesterol levels by at least 10%. Another study revealed that eating carrots can reduce your risk of heart attack by 33%.
Carrots are also high in potassium, which can help relax your blood vessels and arteries. Doing so can reduce the risk of hypertension and other similar diseases that placed added stress on the cardiovascular system.
They Improve Eye Health
Carrots contain beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, all of which work together to improve eye health. Carrots can decrease the risk of macular degeneration and blindness. A lack of Vitamin A has been a proven factor in both night and permanent blindness. Carrots provide Vitamin A via the beta-carotene.
