Over time, the free radicals in our body do start to have a negative impact, and when it comes to our eyes, such oxidative stress comes in the form of macular degeneration. One of the most important antioxidants in the fight against macular degeneration is beta-carotene, which is a derivative of vitamin A. Carrots happen to contain very high levels of vitamin A, and can therefore be added to the diet to increase beta-carotene in the body. By neutralizing the free radicals in the eye that might cause macular degeneration, carrots can keep your vision healthy and strong for many years. Protection Status
