Carrots are excellent sources of beta carotene, Vitamin K and fiber. It is also a good source of Vitamin C, B6, B3, and B1.

Carrots are uniquely composed of a variety of antioxidants, unlike any other food. These varieties of antioxidants and polyacetylenes together provide a protective shield to the heart. It saves the heart from oxidative damage, plaque formation, bad cholesterol elevation, and other problems.

The benefits of carrot juice are like a blessing in disguise for women.

Carrot juice is beneficial during pregnancy. It helps in proper development of the fetus and also reduces the chances of fetal infections and miscarriage. It helps in the production of breast milk during lactation.
I like my carrot juice unstrained. This helps me take advantage of all the above mentioned nutrients and its fibre too. Straining the juice will lead to loss of valuable fibre content of carrots. This fiber adds on to the benefits of carrot juice. It helps in regularizing bowel movements and aids digestion. Carrot juice also helps in conditions like constipation and acid reflux. It helps in weight loss and preventing sugar hikes in blood after juice intake.
The lesser-known benefits of carrot juice are that it also contains calcium, this helps in the growth and development of bones in children and women.

I came across dietburrp while browsing for a very trivial question. You give lot of useful information. Thanks for that. Am from south india and would like to know are there any vegetables or fruits that should be avoided during winter? Is it true, by eating some vegetables, one will get cold or it gets aggravated? Thanks in advance!
well , scientifically that is not true. science does not really claim that this is a fact. but ayurveda does believe in such a concept . like for ex , avoid banana as they might cause cough .. and so on .. well the answer depends on how much you believe in ayurveda . so personally i find a mid way for most such controversial theories , like no matter what you eat, if its winter , if you consume anything from the refrigerator , there is a chance you might catch a cold. so just take care of the temperature of food and not really the food.
mostly you should concentrate on using the seasonal fruits and veggies, i know we get everything in every weather now a days ,, but that is all green house produce. so just enter a farmers outlet , and buy the daily produce , you will get only seasonal there … it will help in maintaining good health
