Including a portion of carrot in your daily diet may have a protective effect against the liver diseases, some scientists suggested.
Hepatoprotection is the ability of certain agents which process the properties to reduce the injurious effects or to preserve the normal hepatic physiological mechanisms. In most cases, liver injury is the result of overexpression of toxin accumulation in the liver.
In the investigation of the liver protective activity of methanolic extract of Daucus carota (D. carota) seeds in experimental rats model, researchers at the Rawatpura Sarkar Institute of Pharmacy assigned randomly into 4 groups of rats (two test, standard and toxic control).
However, rat group treated with methanolic extract of Daucus carota (D. carota) seeds showed a significant decrease of serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT), serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) which are associated to several expressions of liver diseases and increased levels of natural antioxidants produced by the body.
Further analysis of the efficacy of carrot, mango, and wheat extracts against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)-induced oxidative stress and hepatotoxicity, researchers at the Ain Shams University conducted an animal study including 4 albino rats.
These results indicated a strong effect of the extracts in reduced lipid peroxidation by increased levels of antioxidant in inhibition of the reactive oxygen species in the induction of oxidative stress.
Dr. Ebeid HM, the lead author after taking into account of other co and confounders said, "Microscopic examination of the treated rats exhibited a normal histopathological structure" and "carrot, mango, and wheat extracts could be used as nutraceuticals for the prophylaxis and treatment against hepatotoxicity and oxidative stress".
However, additional data collection on large example size and multi-centers studies performed with human consumption of the whole food during the course of the disease will be necessary to complete the picture of carrots liver protective possibilities.
