  1. I’ve always been a carrot fan and I’m already 55 but people who does not really know me, thinks I’m only in my mid 40’s thanks to this amazing roots. ?

  2. In 1991, When I finally gave up smoking. I developed a craving for eating raw carrots, every day, all day, for a couple of months. Then the need to eat them just left me. So maybe my body naturally wanted to detox after years of smoking with toxins stored in my fat deposits. So carrots are good for one.

  3. You do not mention that the fat-soluble carotenoids in carrots will not be absorbed unless they are consumed with a little oily food such as avocado, fish, nut, seed or other oils. Consuming a raw or juiced carrot is pointless without oil!
