They may sound like something out of Alice in Wonderland; purple carrots are not only real; they’re the ultimate super-food. A new Australian study has shown that purple carrots are high in anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants that are stabilising bodily functions.
” They’re the original carrots, from ancient Persia,” explained the study author Lindsay Brown, professor of biomedical sciences at the University of Southern Queensland.
Many claims are made about their health benefits, but until recently remained untested.
Professor Brown conducted a pre-clinical trial on rats, using purple carrots grown in Queensland. For 16 weeks, the rats were fed a high-fat, high-carbohydrate diet. Designed to mimic the effects of an unhealthy western diet. The rats quickly put on excess weight, developed high blood pressure, became glucose intolerant (or pre-diabetic) and incurred liver and heart damage. Then, for the second eight weeks, the scientists added purple carrot juice to the rats’ food.
“Everything went back to normal” – Professor Brown said:
“The blood pressure, collagen in the heart, liver histology, liver enzymes, glucose tolerance, fat pads went all back to normal. This occurred despite continuing this terrible diet.”
There are up to 28 times more anthocyanins in purple carrot, the antioxidant that creates the purple-red pigment in blueberries than there are in orange ones.
