👉🏽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). ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
🔅IMPROVES STOOLS/POOPS: ⁣⁣⁣
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).⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
💥TAKEAWAY:⁣⁣⁣
Start viewing foods beyond their macro and micronutrient breakdown. Perhaps a simple carrot a day can improve your wellness goals?⁣
