Carrot is a root-crop known for its vitamin rich red/orange roots which are used in making foods and salads.
Red carrots contain a good dose of Vitamin A, which helps to prevent clogging of the arteries and thus helps to prevent strokes. Higher levels are found in Orange and Purple carrots. They also contain vitamin B, C and E as well as calcium pectate, which is a very good source of fibre, and they help to lower cholesterol levels. They are also very useful in the prevention of macular degeneration.
