Carrots are one of my favorite vegetables to include in my diet on a daily basis.
They taste good and they are so good for you.
This popular root vegetable is a good source of several vitamins and minerals, especially biotin,
potassium, and vitamins A (from beta carotene), K1 (phylloquinone), and B6.
Vitamin A: Carrots are rich in beta carotene, which your body converts into vitamin A.
This nutrient promotes good vision and is important for growth, development, and immune function.
Biotin: This B vitamin plays an important role in fat and protein metabolism.
Vitamin K1: This vitamin is important for blood coagulation and can promote bone health.
Potassium: An essential mineral, potassium is important for blood pressure control.
Vitamin B6: A group of related vitamins, B6 is involved in the conversion of food into energy.
