Beyond Seeing: Carrots

Fibro Daily December 22, 2012

Carrots are known for their eye-enhancing nutrients, but they do offer more than just a better view of the world.

This nifty orange cruncher is the best source of carotenoids, especially important for fibromyalgia patients to know because other foods that contain them—like tomatoes—often cause stomach irritation to fibro patients. Carotenoids help prevent cancer and help to fight infections. They also help maintain cell health which proves vital for all people, but which many believe plays a key in the control of fibromyalgia. Doctors suspect that both chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia may originate in the cells.

Eat carrots raw or cooked, as both styles provide all the goodness you need.
