Carrots are an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K. Since they’re rich in an antioxidant called beta carotene, they’re good for your eyes. Beta carotene, or carotenoids, give carrots their orange hue and may protect you against cancer. They also improve cognitive function and protect your skin against ultraviolet (UV) sunrays. It’s easier for your body to use carotenoids when they’re heated, so try steaming or roasting your carrots.
