Carrots as Superfoods
Harnessing the powerful vitamins and minerals contained in carrots while you're on a detoxifying cleanse can help in many ways. The beta-carotene that gives carrots their vibrant color is not only important for eye health but is also a strong cancer-fighting antioxidant that protects cells against harmful free radicals and promotes optimal cell functioning. Carrots also lower the risk of heart disease, cancers, and type 2 diabetes and provide sound nutrition for pregnancy and night vision.
