Monch, Monch: Here’s Why You’ll Love Carrots

What health benefits do you usually associate with carrots?

My parents told me to eat them for good eyesight. I absolutely love carrots and I eat them raw on a daily basis. Ironically enough, I also have 20/20 vision. These two realities may not be directly related, but one thing is for sure: carrots are amazing and have many more benefits than we know!

More Than Meets the Eye

Carrots are rich in vitamins, like Lutein and Beta-Carotene. Not only do they help your eyes but they can also work wonders on your hair

Vitamin A

Vitamin A deficiency is one of the most common factors that lead to hair loss. This vitamin can promote hair growth – making it thicker, longer and stronger, too. Vitamin A also prevents dry scalp, as beta-carotene is proven to help moisturize. On top of that, Vitamin A boosts sun protection, further safeguarding your hair.

Vitamins C and E

Vitamins C and E improve blood circulation to the scalp, which can prevent premature graying. It just so happens that carrots are another versatile ingredient found in Kimberly Elise’s Alchemy 27.

Beyond Hair

Beyond hair care, carrot oil is also believed to help relieve stress. The earthy scent can help “ground” you when you’re combating stress and exhaustion.

If essential oils aren’t for you, I recommend baking your stress and exhaustion away. Not only can a carrot dish aid in grounding you, but the process of making it can help calm you as well.
