Dr. Herrington's Health Fact

Regina Naturopathic

Like all colourful vegetables, carrots are a gold mine of antioxidants such as carotenoids, polyphenols and vitamins. Beta-carotene in carrots helps protect vision (yes your grandmother was right!). A high intake of carotenoids has been linked with a significant decrease in post-menopausal breast cancer, as well as prostate cancer.
