Carrot a root vegetable is a very healthy food and a good source of beta carotene with numerous nutrients and antioxidants.

Known to be beneficial for eye health,it also helps in lowering cholesterol levels.The beta carotene contained in it contributes to the

Cosmetic industry use carrots widely in their produce.
