Why are carrots and ginger immune boosters?
Like most vegetables, carrots consist almost entirely of water (90 percent) and their calorific value is 109 kJ (26 kcal). Although carrots are naturally sweet, they are very low in calories. They are also more filling when raw than when cooked.
Carrots are full of minerals and vitamins such as potassium, manganese, beta-carotene, vitamins K & C and biotin. The whole package strengthens your immune system as a snack or as an ingredient in soup and strengthens you for the cold season.
With its essential oils (including citral), ginger relieves nausea, promotes the metabolism and, thanks to its antioxidant effect, protects against infections. Ginger is also packed full of vitamin C, magnesium, iron, calcium, sodium and phosphorus. In addition, ginger really heats up the body, which stimulates the metabolism and digestion. Thus, ginger is also a real calorie killer for all love handles.
