Carrots a wonderful snack food


Carrots are one of my favorite healthier snacks, along with cherries and cucumbers. Especially baby carrots, I love them because they are ready-to-eat and taste so sweet.
It is recommended that carrots should be cooked or juiced to get the most nutrients out of them.
But I prefer to eat raw carrots, they are yummy and so crunchy ...  :-)

And of course, let's not forget carrot juice.
Carrot juice and health go hand in hand. They have been used for thousands of years for medicinal purposes. Many people consider drinking carrot juice one of the healthiest lifestyle choices possible. 
A glass of carrot juice is loaded with vitamins that are great for your skin, hair and has fewer calories than fruit juices.


Carrots benefits :
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
1.)  Carrot juice gives the body Vitamins A, B, E and many minerals. 
2.)  Because it is very rich in beta-carotene which is an antioxidant, it prevents cell degeneration and
      the aging process is slowed down.
3.)  Healthy glowing skin
4.)  Cleanse the body, Vitamin A assists the liver in flushing out the toxins from the body.
5.)  Also Vitamin A in carrot juice improves eye-sight and helps in bone disorders and osteoporosis. 
6.)  Prevent heart disease and stroke.
7.)  Healthy teeth and gums. Carrots clean your teeth and mouth.
8.)  Cancer prevention. It help slows down the aging of cells.
9.)  Add thickness to hair, fast hair growth
10) A powerful antiseptic. Carrots prevent infection, they can be used on cuts, raw or boiled and
       mashed.





A little extra about vitamin A:
Vitamin A and antioxidants protects the skin from sun damage. Deficiencies of vitamin A cause dryness to the skin, hair and nails. Vitamin A prevents premature wrinkling, acne, dry skin, pigmentation, blemishes, and uneven skin tone.


Drinking carrot juice every day can help overcome the problem of gray hair.

Greying of hair is a natural process. The hair has a tendency to lose its natural color with age and turn grey, but what cause premature greying? 
It can be because of chemical pollution in air and water, use of shampoos, conditioners, synthetic hair products, smoking, drinking too much coffee or alcohol. 
What to do?
Try to drink carrot juice for a B5 source, vitamin B5 not only fights premature gray hair but raises moods, sometimes better than prescription antidepressants. Carrots are particularly effective in supplying our blood with minerals needed for hair health and hair color. There are few reports of people successfully using carrots to limit gray hairs. 


Once again, it is recommended that carrots should be cooked or juiced to get the most nutrients out of them. 
So why not give it a go?
Bon Appetit!

Carrots have the highest content of beta carotene, or Vitamin A, of all vegetables.
  
Carrots are one of the rare vegetables which are more nutricious cooked than raw.
