Modern Researches of Carrot.:
Carrot is rich in carrotene, lycopene, sugar, fatty oil, essential oil, caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid, gallic acid, vitamins B1, B2 and C, and umbelliferone.
Carotene is transformed by the liver into viramin A when it is eaten. When used as a regular item in the diet the roots improve eyesight and skin health, and also have anti-cancer effects. A wonderful cleansing medicine, it supports the liver and stimulates urine flow and the removal of waste by the kidneys. The root is diuretic and ophthalmic (benefiting to the eye.)
The strong association between increased intake of beta-carotene from food and a reduced risk of lung cancer does not necessarily mean that supplementation with natural beta-carotene supplements would reduce the risk of lung cancer. Dietary beta-carotene may be a marker for diets high in certain fruits and vegetables that contain other anticancer substances that may be responsible for the protective effects. Until more is known, some doctors advise smokers to avoid all forms of beta-carotene supplementation--even natural beta-carotene.
Some,but not all,studies have reported that eating more foods rich in beta-carotene or vitamin A was associated with a lower risk of cataracts. Synthetic beta-carotene supplementation has not been found to reduce the risk of cataract formation. It remains unclear whether natural beta-carotene from food or supplements would protect the eye or whether beta-carotene in food is merely a marker for other protective factors in fruits and vegetables high in beta-carotene.
Low intake of fruits and vegetables containing beta-carotene, which the body can convert into vitamin A, may also contribute to a vitamin A deficiency.
People who eat plenty of fruits and vegetables high in beta-carotene appear to be at lower risk for macular degeneration (breakdown or damage to a portion of the retina known as the macula) than people who do not eat these foods. However, another study found no association between age-related macular degeneration and intake of antioxidants, either from the diet, from supplements, or from both combined. More research is needed to reconcile these differences. In the meantime, beta-carotene-rich vegetables continue to be part of a healthful diet.
Most dietary studies have found that women receiving high amounts of nutrients from fruits and vegetables have less risk of cervical dysplasia (precancerous changes to the epithelial cells lining the cervix). Protective effects may be especially strong from diets high in dark yellow and orange vegetables, such as carrots, winter squash, etc., and tomatoes.
The juice of organic carrots is a delicious drink and a valuable detoxifier. The raw root, grated or mashed, is a safe treatment for threadworms, especially in children.
The seed is carminative (expelling gas from the alimentary canal so as to relieve colic or griping), galactogogue, lithontripic and stimulant. They are useful in the treatment of kidney diseases, dropsy and to settle the digestive system. They stimulate menstruation and have been used in folk medicine as a treatment for hangovers.
The roasted root is a coffee substitute.
The roots are fermented in order to produce alcohol.
Carotin, extracted from the roots, is used as an orange-yellow food dye.
The leaves contain an oil that is rich in vitamin E.
An essential oil from the seed has a distinctive fragrance and is used in perfumery.
