Health Notes from Dr. Liz

January 3, 2014

Each gorgeously hued carrot supplies different health-boosting properties. Red for lycopene, a potent cancer fighter, purple for anthocyanin that wards off inflammation and yellow xanthophyll, along with good ‘ol orange beta carotene, which supports eye health. A beautiful bargain for only 25 calories per carrot. Dr. Liz
