What are carrots good for?
Carrots have vitamin A which is good for the skin. One cup can provide one dose which has 686 percent of your daily
requirement. Two basic forms of vitamin A are found and one is found in carrots. Preformed vitamin A is found in animal
sources and a vitamin source found in carrots. Researchers say that the preformed vitamin A , which is stored in fat cells which
is fat soluble may be linked to bone loss and fractures. The body’s metabolism converts vitamin A into a pro vitamin which is beta-carotene. Beta carotene protects the body against ultra violent rays (livestrong.com).
Vitamin A is effective in treating eczema. Medication made from alitretinoin is used to treat skin lesions and severe eczema. It
is also used to treat skin tumors.
Beta carotene also supports the eye.
