Immune boosting food tip of the day

Betcha Bugs Bunny didn’t get sick often. Carrots are one of the richest sources of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene converts in the body into vitamin A, a powerful antioxidant that helps strengthen cells against viruses.

Beta-carotene also assists in fighting cancer, preventing heart disease, and helping vision. The vitamin K in it is important for healthy blood clotting and the healing of wounds. The chromium in it helps stabilize blood sugar levels. And, the fibre aids digestion and helps lower bad cholesterol.

Since raw carrots can be hard to digest, you can help your body out by grating them or chopping them finely. Juicing is also a wonderful option. Mix carrots with apples and ginger in a juicer for a healthy, easy, and super-nutritious beverage/snack.
