Why should you eat carrots?

When you think of a carrot, chances are you picture a bright orange root vegetable with long green fronds. While this is the most common color of carrots, some can be red, yellow, white - and even purple! A medium raw carrot only has 25 calories and is very high in beta carotene. The body converts beta carotene into Vitamin A. As you may know, beta carotene is a powerful antioxidant that is famously good for your eyes. Carrots also contain other vital nutrients like vitamins C, K, B6, folate, niacin, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium among others.


What are the health benefits of carrots?

In addition to all of the antioxidants and nutrients, carrots are thought to have numerous health benefits. Besides being great for your vision, carrots are believed to help reduce the risk of cancer, may help you manage your blood pressure and improve heart health, promote healthy bones, benefit your immune system, and boost your digestive processes because of the fiber content.


Are carrots keto?

Carrots contain more carbs than other vegetables that are more popular on the keto diet. Because carrots contain around 9.6 g of carbs per 100g, many people are unsure whether carrots are keto. Are carrots keto? Like many things in life, moderation is key. If you are following a keto diet and tracking your carbohydrate intake, you may be hesitant. You will find that the health benefits of carrots are important to overall health despite the carbs. So YES, carrots are a great keto addition - in moderation.
