As a saying goes that taking in luobo (carrot and radish) in autumn and ginger in summer keep doctors away.

Carrots

Carrots contain abundant carotene, rich in alanine and other nine amino acids and proteins, fats, and rich in calcium, but also rich in vitamins and minerals such as phosphorus, iron. Carotene significantly protects eyesight, to promote children's growth and development effects. Carrots are often cooked with oil so as to let out the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D and E). Carrots are also rich in dietary fiber, antioxidants, and minerals. Stewed carrot retains the 93% of carotene while stir fried reduces to 80%. If carrots were eaten raw, only 10% of carotene could be absorbed by human beings.
