Carrot is the source of beta-carotene, the plant form of vitamin A. the greatest nutritional benefit of the carrot is that it is an excellent source of beta-carotene. Research has linked low  Beta carotene levels in the blood decreases the risk of some cancers.

There is also evidence that high intake of beta carotene may help to protect against damage caused by free radicals. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A, which is needed for healthy vision as well as the maintenance of mucous membranes.
