Lady Carrot

“Chew that raw carrot, its good for your eyes!” well… actually, I was quite surprised to discover that carrot releases most of its vitamins when cooked! So don’t chew on that orange stick if you hate it raw!

As a child I used to munching on those leftovers from Carrot salad – the ends of the carrots, which are hard to grate without sacrificing parts of your fingers! But these days I can’t made my self to eat one single raw carrot. Good thing is that they can be eaten in a variety of ways!

Did you know that only 3% of the β-carotene in raw carrots is released during digestion? This can be improved to 39% by boiling, pressure-cooking, baking, microwaving, grilling and frying. Refreshing news that not all vitamins get spoiled by cooking! PLUS cooking also increases antioxidant power! Enough said – you can not go wrong with the carrot as CARROTS are one of the most versatile vegetables in the world. Personally, I add them to the most of my soups, sauces and salads. Great taste, minimum calories and so many health benefits.

Good 4 your Eyes

So what about that eye vision improvement power? Well carrots won’t improve your visual acuity if you have less than perfect vision. Obviously a diet of carrots won’t give a blind person 20/20 vision. :) Shame! But the vitamins found in carrot can help to promote overall eye health. Carrots contain β-carotene, a substance that the body converts to vitamin A, which is an important nutrient for eye health.

Once again our mothers were right… even if it’s not a miracle remedy, Lady carrot is a great natural source of vitamins to support our precious eyes – so we can enjoy all those things we love in our life!

Good 4 your Skin

As mentioned before it’s a greatest natural supplier of β-carotene. Which helps protect skin tissues and provides protection against the sun’s harsh rays. Its increasing immunity against the sun, heal sunburns and help you to achieve better tan results :) Just drink a glass of carrot juice before and after sunbathing to get enviable perfect tan*.


Carrots has even more positive effects – helps with anti-aging and with hair repair too. So good thing is that carrot can be used almost in every cuisine and any cooking process. Yey!

Wiki facts

The carrot is a root vegetable, usually orange in colour, though purple, red, white, and yellow varieties exist. The most commonly eaten part is a tap-root, although the greens are sometimes eaten as well. Carrots are widely used in many cuisines, especially in the preparation of salads, and carrot salads are a tradition in many regional cuisines. Predecessors of carrot are likely to have come from Persia (Iran and Afghanistan).

The carrot gets its characteristic and bright orange colour from β-carotene, and lesser amounts of α-carotene, those are partly metabolized into vitamin A providing more than 100% of the Daily Value per 100 g serving. Carrots are also a good source of dietary fibre (11% DV), vitamin K (16% DV) and vitamin B6 (11% DV), but otherwise have modest content of other essential nutrients. They content 88% water, 4.7% sugar, 2.6% protein, 1% ash, and 0.2% fat. Free sugars in carrot include sucrose, glucose and fructose (the good ones).
