Benefits of Carrots

Carrots are a powerful food for the human body. They contain beta carotene, which the body converts to Vitamin A, essential for healthy eyes and vision. Carrots can lower cholesterol levels, slow memory loss and the degeneration of the central nervous system. They can also reduce the risk of diabetes and cancer and strengthen your bones.​ Carrots can be eaten raw or cooked, with both probably being best. It is suggested that cooking carrots releases more of the valuable Beta Carotene we seek.

Vitamins & Nutrients found in Carrots (Click for details)


  • For best results, fresh, organic foods are recommended.

  • Foods are most nutritious in their raw form, unless heating is required. 

  • Food sources are recommended over supplements, but in the event you must use supplements, be sure to purchase them from a reputable source. In the U.S., supplements are not regulated by the FDA.

  • "Everything in moderation" is a good rule of thumb. Don't shock your system by eating dozens of apples (or anything) in one day. A balanced, yet varied diet is the goal.  

  • As with medicine, there are no guarantees. Preventative steps can help prevent illness and possibly prolong lives, but there are many contributing factors and variables which can sometimes produce unexpected results. 

  • Do research and consult your physician before making any serious changes to your diet or taking supplements. Discuss any allergies or concerns you may have. If you are taking any prescriptions or medications, this is especially important.

  • The information presented here is based on my research and years of note-taking. What started as a short list of cures for friends and family has grown into a full and very complex database, yet is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of eating healthy foods. This list is a work in progress and by no means complete. My goal is to help people suffering from various ailments, with a secondary goal of spreading the news about the miraculous healing power of foods. Use this information as a launchpad into your new healthy life.
