Carrots Nutrition Facts Vitamin A:

Carrots are high in beta-carotene (also known as Vitamin A) making them an excellent cancer-preventing food.  In tests conducted worldwide, beta carotene has been shown to stave off cancers such as pancreas and lug, stomach, intestine, throat, mouth, prostate and bladder.

Carrots contain beta-carotene, which contains a ‘carotenoid’ which acts as an anti-oxidant.  Carrots are the best source of beta-carotene and ‘carotenoid’ which the body changes into Vitamin A.

Carrots Nutrition Facts For Blood:

Raw carrots contain pectin-containing fibre which has shown to reduce blood cholesterol levels. The fibre in carrots promotes regularity, preventing constipation.

Eating two and a half cups of carrots daily has been shown to lower blood cholesterol.
