Behold the Carrot....
Carrots are one of the most popular veggies worldwide and can be eaten raw, cooked or juiced. Carrots get their signature orange color from antioxidants called carotenoids, which are known for protecting the eyes and skin.
In addition to high levels of vitamin A, most of the benefits of carrots can be attributed to their beta-carotene and fiber content. This root vegetable is also a good source of antioxidant agents (lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin). Furthermore, carrots are rich in vitamin C, D, E, K, and B8, as well as folate, potassium, iron, copper, calcium, magnesium and manganese.
