Beyond eye health: this winter, make carrots your best friend

Dec 06, 2020 12:35 IST

You've probably grown up listening to the phrase 'eat carrots, they're good for the eyes'. But let's look beyond that. The crunchy superfood is all you need this winter to amp up your immunity game. Beta carotene, potassium, vitamin K1 and fibre. You name it and carrots have it. Carrots contain pectin, a form of soluble fibre known to lower blood sugar levels. They contain plant compounds like carotenoids that act as antioxidants and may reduce the risk of multiple heart diseases and cancer. Last but not the least, if you have weight loss goals, carrots have to be your favourite snack as it keeps you satiated for long. Dash the carrots and add them to your salad or eat them raw!
