Carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes and squash all contain an antioxidant called beta-carotene. It is the yellow/orange pigment that gives them their rich colors. Our bodies convert beta-carotene into Vitamin A, which we need for healthy skin and mucus membranes, our immune system, and good eye health and vision.
