What’s Up Doc? How’s about a Carrot?
Ever wonder why Elmer Fudd had such a hard time catching Bugs Bunny? Maybe it was because he just couldn’t see.
Carrots are said to improve your eyesight, true or false. Well, it’s true. With every crunch carrots help keep your eyes strong, however it’s not just the carrot themselves, it’s the vitamin A. Duke Health points out the real source of eye care is found in moderate quantities of vitamin A, which carrots have plenty of! Duke Health explains that without the daily-recommended dose of vitamin A“…the outer segments of the eye’s photoreceptors begin to deteriorate, and the normal chemical processes involved in vision no longer occur”.
However, don’t go filling your cute leather satchel with carrots because your Ray Bands are tiring. Too much carrot intake will overload your body with carotene causing your skin to turn yellowish. Remember it’s the vitamin A that restores vision. So here’s a list of a few foods that are rich in vitamin A:
- Sweet potato
- Dried Apricots
- Mozzarella Cheese
Don’t forget: Always in moderation
