Carrot Powder - Organic
Carrots are nutritional heroes; they store a goldmine of nutrients. No other vegetable or fruit
contains as much carotene as carrots, which the body converts to vitamin A. This is a truly versatile
vegetable and an excellent source of vitamins B and C as well as calcium pectate, an extraordinary pectin
fiber that has been found to have cholesterol lowering properties. The carrot is an herbaceous plant
containing about 87% water, rich in mineral salts and vitamins (B,C,D,E). Raw carrots are an excellent source
of vitamin A and potassium; they contain vitamin C, vitamin B6, thiamine, folic acid, and magnesium. The high
level of beta-carotene is very important and gives carrots their distinctive orange color.
The known phytonutrients in carrots are lutein, lycopene, alpha, beta and gamma carotenes, zeaxanthin and
xanthophyll. These phytonutrients are nature's marvelous provision for healing of various diseases. Carrots are
credited with many medicinal properties; they are said to cleanse the intestines and to be diuretic,
remineralizing, antidiarrheal, an overall tonic and antianemic. Carrots are rich in alkaline elements which purify
and revitalize the blood. They nourish the entire system and help in the maintenance of acid-alkaline balance in
the body. The carrot also has a reputation as a vegetable that helps to maintain good eyesight. Its highly
energizing nutrients are also particularly beneficial for the liver.
