In conventional medicine carrots, in the form of the freshly grated root or juice, are used mainly for the treatment of nutritional disorders in babies, vitamin A deficiency and threadworms. They are occasionally used as a diuretic (to promote the elimination of water).
Carrot oil, the root extract in a carrier oil, helps skin with insufficient sebaceous secretion. It provides sustained care for rough, dry, flaky skin and preventive protection for normal skin.
People who eat a lot of carrots can see better and have a bronzed complexion. This healthy vegetable produces these two effects through its provitamin A, which is converted to vitamin A in the human body. Provitamin A is fat-soluble and therefore needs the presence of fat to be taken up by the body. Carrots should therefore always be eaten together with a little fat. Important minerals and trace elements in the carrot such as calcium, folic acid and selenium support the immune system and contribute to the development of beautiful hair and nails.
