Consistent with popular belief, carrots really do improve eyesight. They are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted into Vitamin A and then to rhodopsin – a purple pigment that is necessary for night vision. In addition, beta-carotene protects against macular degeneration – an eye disease that causes vision loss.

Other benefits of carrots include:

  • Slowing the process of aging cells
  • Reducing cholesterol levels
  • Aiding in cleansing the body by flushing out toxins
  • Helping with psoriasis, eczema, acne, and overall skin health
  • Assisting in preventing cancer
