EATING CARROTS WILL HELP YOU SEE IN DARK ! IS IT TRUE?

It is crunchy, tasty, and highly nutritious. Carrots are a particularly good source of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants. They also have a number of health benefits. They’re a weight-loss-friendly food and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health.

People probably first cultivated the carrot thousands of years ago, in the area that is now Afghanistan. The original small, forked, purple or yellow root had a bitter, woody flavor and was quite different from the carrot that we know today.

We  look into reasons for adding carrots to the diet and any precautions to take. And also the age-old question: Do they really help you see in the dark?

Carrots are rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They are also a good source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are nutrients present in plant-based foods. They help the body remove free radicals, unstable molecules that can cause cell damage if too many accumulate in the body. Free radicals result from natural processes and environmental pressures. The body can eliminate many free radicals naturally, but dietary antioxidants can help, especially when the oxidant load is high.

Some of the amazing health benefits of carrots are mentioned below :

Vision : Can carrots help you see in the dark? This is true. Carrots contain vitamin A, and a vitamin A deficiency may result in xerophthalmia, a progressive eye disease. Xerophthalmia can cause night blindness or difficulty seeing when levels of light are low. So, in a way, carrots can help you see in the dark. However, most people’s vision is unlikely to improve from eating carrots, unless they have a vitamin A deficiency.

Cancer : Too many free radicals in the body may increase the risk of various types of cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute. The antioxidant effects of dietary carotenoids — yellow, orange, and red organic pigments present in carrots and other vegetables — may reduce this risk. Lutein and zeaxanthin are two examples of these carotenoids.

Leukemia: In 2011, researchers found evidence that nutrients in carrot juice extract could kill leukemia cells and slow or stop their progression.

Lung cancer: Also in 2011, researchers concluded that drinking carrot juice may help prevent the type of damage that leads to lung cancer in smokers.

Digestive health : Consuming more carotenoid-rich foods may lower the risk of colon cancer. The findings of a study published the following year suggest that people who consume a high-fiber diet have a lower risk of cancer than those who consume little fiber.

Diabetes control : Carrots have a sweet flavor and contain natural sugars. What does this mean for people with diabetes? Carbohydrates make up around 10% of a carrot, and nearly half of this is sugar. Another 30% of this carbohydrate content is fiber. A medium carrot provides 25 calories. Overall, this makes a carrot a low-calorie, high-fiber food that is relatively low in sugar. For this reason, it scores low on the glycemic index (GI). This index can help people with diabetes understand which foods are likely to raise their blood sugar levels.

ANJEER AKA FIGS

Indians and their love for dry fruits is beyond definition. Right from gravies to desserts, from breakfast to snacks and from snacks  to dinner, Indian meals are simply incomplete without a variety of dry fruits. What makes this delicious bond even more strong is the enormous health benefits these dry fruits offer, especially figs  are unique in that they have and opening, called the “ostiole” or “eye,” which is not connected to the tree. Figs range dramatically in color and subtly in texture depending upon the variety

Figs can be eaten either fresh or dry and has a sweet taste and variety of health benefits that it provides. The high amount of calcium, iron and potassium present in it along with the high amount of fiber and low fat makes it a healthy food to include in your diet which can be eaten alone or mixed in yogurt, salad and toppings on cereals and oatmeal.

 

Helps in weight management: Moderate amount of figs can help in controlling weight. They are rich in fiber, and therefore dietitians suggest that eating figs is a good way to keep junk and fried foods at bay. When in the mood for a light snack, pick figs and they will make you feel full, at the same time, but in a healthy way.

Controls blood pressure and ageing: Figs are rich in potassium, which negates the effect of sodium and helps in controlling blood pressure. They can also help in controlling ageing effects by providing you enough iron, estrogen, etc. This keeps your hormones in check and boosts your energy as well. Figs are also great for skin and hair and nails. Mashed figs applied on the face can prevent acne.

 

Controls blood sugar: The chlorogenic acid present in figs helps in reducing blood sugar levels in diabetics. Potassium which is found in abundance in figs also plays a good role in control of blood sugar levels.

 

Prevent kidney stones: Boil some figs in water and once cool, this water can be consumed for a few days to prevent kidney stones.

 

Strengthens Bones It is often seen that despite eating wholesome meals, there are several deficiencies that pop up from time to time. And the best way to include the essential vitamins and minerals in your diet is by adding figs to your daily menu. Figs are loaded with calcium and even small quantities can strengthen your immunity.
