The Benefits of Carrot-Ginger Soup

The Benefits of Carrot-Ginger Soup include the health benefits of both fiber and carotenoids. Not to mention the flavor. SoLé Soups Carrot-Ginger is savory and naturally sweet all at once. This soup is smooth and satisfying, high in fiber, rich in vitamin A, and potassium.

Fiber:

Fiber is an essential part of a healthy diet. Dietary fiber — found mainly in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes — is probably best known for its ability to prevent or relieve constipation. But foods containing fiber can provide other health benefits as well, such as helping to maintain a healthy weight and lowering your risk of diabetes, heart disease, and some types of cancer. There are numerous health benefits to a diet rich in Fiber, including lower cholesterol. Studies also have shown that high-fiber foods may have other heart-health benefits, such as reducing blood pressure and inflammation.

Carotenoids:

Much of the research on carrots has traditionally focused on Carotenoids and their important antioxidant benefits. Additionally, some of the newest research has turned to another category of Phytonutrients found in carrots called Polyacetylenes (namely Falcarinol and Falcarindiol). Several recent studies have identified these Phytonutrients can actually help inhibit the growth of cancer cells.* Apparently, the rich Carotenoid content of carrots helps prevent oxidative damage inside our bodies, and helps prevent oxidative damage to the carrot Polyacetylenes themselves; these two amazing groups of Phytonutrients seem to work in a synergistic way to maximize health benefits overall. The Phenolic compounds in ginger are known to help relieve gastrointestinal irritation, stimulate saliva and bile production and suppress gastric contractions and movement of food and fluids through the GI tract. An amazing combination of benefits, from two fantastic ingredients- in a truly delicious, yummy recipe; enjoy Sole Soups Carrot-Ginger varieties often! (Available in both Vegan and Vegetarian formats.)

The Benefits of Carrot-Ginger Soup also include the flavor of course. At SoLé SoupS, our commitment to you is soups, salads, and fresh frozen entrees that are both delicious and as healthy as possible.
