High Levels of Alpha-Carotene Linked to Longer Life Span
Carrots are orange because they are full of carotenoids, a class of yellow, orange or red fat-soluble pigments.
The most famous carotenoid is beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A and also has antioxidant properties.
Additionally, carrots contain alpha-carotene, another A-vitamin precursor.
High levels of alpha-carotene were linked to a longer life span in a study published in a 2010 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine.
Carrots are also rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, which may protect the eyes from severe age-related macular degeneration.
