Health Benefits of Dried Carrot Powder
Supports Cardiovascular Health
Carrots contain several phytochemicals with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory behaviors that help reduce the risk of heart disease. The polyphenols in carrots have been shown to increase bile secretion, which decreases cholesterol and triglyceride levels.3 The fiber in carrots also assists in keeping cholesterol down. Furthermore, carrots are a good source of potassium, which is known to lower blood pressure levels.
Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, including the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. Because these compounds tend to accumulate in the retina, they are particularly helpful in preventing age-related macular degeneration, a common cause of vision loss.4 Regular consumption of carrots and other orange vegetables is a good way to protect your eyes against the effects of aging and environmental damage.
Improves Dental Health
A study evaluating the rate of tooth-loss in an elderly Japanese population found that higher intakes of beta carotene through carrots is protective against dental issues.5 The study suggests that a dietary pattern that is high in carrots, squash, leafy greens, and lower in rice, is beneficial for the retention of teeth despite a lack of proper dental care. The low sugar content of carrots, along with their beneficial vitamins, like vitamin C, may improve gum health and provide protective effects.
Prevents Cognitive Decline
The same study noting the benefits of carrots for tooth retention also associated this dietary pattern with cognitive benefits. Higher intakes of carrots and other nutritious veggies appear to reduce the risk of dementia.5 Eating cooked and raw carrots as part of an overall healthy eating habit is a proactive way to stay sharp with age.
Reduces Risk of Cancer
The vitamin A in carrots protects DNA from the oxidative damage that can lead to cancer. Carrots come in many colors, including yellow, orange, red, and purple, each with various levels and types of antioxidants.
Orange carrots are high beta carotene, yellow carrots in lutein, red carrots in lycopene, and purple carrots in anthocyanins. Purple carrot extract has been shown to protect colon cells against oxidative DNA damage by over 20%. The antioxidants in different colored carrots work throughout the body to help prevent cancer.
