Orange Glazed Carrots

Oranges and carrots are like a true match made in heaven to protect your vision and improve the eyesight. We bring you a combination of these two health boosters in an utterly delicious recipe.

Nutritional Benefits

A study has claimed that people who regularly eat oranges are less likely to develop macular degeneration which is one of the leading causes of vision loss. Oranges also have good doses of Vitamin C that boosts immunity and fights off infections. The juicy and crunchy carrots are good sources of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants. The beta-carotene in carrots is a pre cursor of vitamin A. Deficiencies in vitamin A are the leading causes of blindness in most parts of the world.
