Orange carrots contain the highest concentrations of alpha- and beta-carotene. Alpha- and beta-carotene promote and support your body’s production of vitamin A, which is a necessary vitamin for healthy eyes.
Honey contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, which can help support and improve the digestive system and boost immunity. Even more, it has antiseptic properties that can inhibit the growth of certain kinds of bacteria. Finally, it contains antimicrobial properties that can help fight bacteria that cause sore throats.
Lemon juice might not be the key to curing cancer, some studies show that citrus limonoids may inhibit the development of certain tumors. Vitamin C might also help fight the formation of free radicals, which are known to cause cancer.
Turmeric contains curcumin, which is a compound that has been found to reduce swelling and inflammation. (This could be beneficial for digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, and ulcerative colitis.) Turmeric has a low bioavailability, which means that your body metabolizes it very quickly. Experts recommend pairing it with black pepper, which contains a natural substance called piperine that helps the body absorb the curcumin more slowly.
Kefir contains 12 live and active probiotic cultures (more than DOUBLE of traditional yogurt and milk), which may help increase the diversity of your gut microbiota. Several studies have shown a strong association between the gut-brain-microbiota. Probiotics introduced to the gut have been found to support immunity, improve allergies, and improve digestion.
