What makes this simple salad so potent?
Carrots contain unique undigestible fibers that help feed the good bacteria in your belly. These fibers also help detox excess estrogen from the body by preventing estrogen reabsorption from the intestine, meaning the liver can more effectively regulate metabolism. Balanced hormone levels lead to better moods, improved sleep, and healthy skin and hair production. Really, what isn’t to love?
Apple cider vinegar helps regulate blood sugar, so glucose levels remain steady, helping with inflammation.(1) Apple cider vinegar can increase the feeling of fullness and thus reduce cravings. And if that wasn’t enough, vinegar also has polyphenols which help stop cell damage that can lead to other diseases, like cancer.
Enjoy a small portion daily for added gut health and hormone support!
