Carrots are good for eyes as they keep them healthy, protect them against the sun, lowers chances of cataracts and other eye problems. Apart from being highly nutritious with beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium and antioxidants, carrots are weight-loss-friendly and also linked to lower cholesterol levels.
As for the red cabbage, its Vitamin C content acts as an antioxidant which helps protect our cells while its potassium content ensures we have a healthy heart. Being high in fiber, it makes digesting foods easier and keeps the digestive system healthy apart from providing small amounts of calcium, magnesium, and zinc, which can help build and maintain healthy bones.
It is also a good source of vitamin K and makes for a perfect immune booster since it has ten times more vitamins, cancer-fighting flavonoids and a winning amount of antioxidants than a green cabbage. Hence, its consumption improves eye, teeth, bone and immune health.
