The Health Benefits of Carrots
One of the health benefits of carrots is well known: the carrot is rich in beta-carotene, which the body stores and converts to vitamin A as it is needed.

Vitamin A deficiency leads to poor vision; thus, the age-old parental advice concerning the benefits of carrots to good vision can be scientifically supported.The many components (sometimes referred to as flavonoids) that cause fruits and vegetables to have different colors are believed to be important to human health.

The compound that makes carrots and other vegetables orange is called "carotene", named aptly after the carrot. The overall importance of these individual compounds to human health is a matter of some debate. In other words, the health benefits of carrots may not be associated with one single compound, but with the numerous vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and dietary fiber that it contains.
