Carrot greens are lacy and feathery and are something you may never thought you could eat, but should. These greens contain an impressive list of nutrients, including significant amounts of vitamin A, dietary fiber, vitamin C, calcium, protein and iron.
Carrot greens are rich source of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll contains powerful phytonutrients which work towards preventing the growth and formation of tumors. Studies show carrot leaves to have the ability to inhibit the growth of tumorous cells, in turn restricting malignant cell division.
Effects on the kidney: Acting as a mild diuretic, chlorophyll helps in stimulating the flow of urine while its detoxifying properties aid in filtering the kidney thus minimizing the risk of edema as well as combatting kidney stones or dissolving the ones already formed.
Effects on the colon: The detoxification effects of chlorophyll also help in loosening and cleansing the colon while the dietary fibers assist in pushing out the accumulated wastes, promoting better absorption of nutrients.
