👉🏽HERE’S WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE A CARROT A DAY!
✅ELIMINATES EXCESS ESTROGEN:
Estrogen reduction is especially important nowadays, given the level of estrogen-like chemicals (xenoestrogens) in our environment.
We simply cannot escape being exposed to these xenoestrogens. Eating raw carrots can prevent the absorption of estrogen from the intestine, allowing the liver to more effectively regulate metabolism (Peat, 2012).
📚CARROTS REDUCE ENDOTOXINS/LPS:
Endotoxins (lipopolysaccharide, LPS) are the major component of the outer leaflet of Gram-negative bacteria and has profound immunostimulatory and inflammatory capacity in our bodies.
Endotoxins are a particular type of toxin that are bound to the insoluble fiber in carrots. By consuming carrots, endotoxins– get safely carried out of your body (Peat, 2011).
Constipation or diarrhea, or their alternation, usually develops when there is inflammation in the bowel.
A laxative can sometimes reduce the inflammation, but it’s important to identify the foods that contribute to the problem!
A salad of shredded carrot, with oil and vinegar dressing, has a germicidal action, and is stimulating to the digestive processes (Peat, 2020). Chronic constipation, can decreases blood circulation in the intestine, and increase the liver’s exposure to endotoxin (Grant, 2002).
Start viewing foods beyond their macro and micronutrient breakdown. Perhaps a simple carrot a day can improve your wellness goals?
