To live vigorously and luxuriantly, to flourish

Carrots

Carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotene and alpha-carotene, compounds that are converted to vitamin A in the body. One of the most common antioxidants in carrots, lutein is predominantly found in yellow and orange carrots and is important for eye health.  Red and purple carrots are high in lycopene which is known to decrease your risk of cancer and heart disease as well as enhance vision. Carrots contain phytochemicals that have antioxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and other health enhancing properties. Carrots are high in the soluble, pectin and vitamins K, C, and the mineral potassium.
