Carrots are nutritional heroes because they store a goldmine of nutrients. No other vegetable or fruit contains as much carotene as carrots do. Also I know that carrots contain something which the body converts to vitamin A. This is a truly versatile vegetable and an excellent source of vitamins. Though it is clearly carrots are healthy, but can I overdose with it?

Raw carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A and potassium. They contain vitamin C, vitamin B6, thiamine, folic acid, and magnesium. Cooked carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, a good source of potassium, and contain vitamin B6, folic acid, copper, and magnesium. The high level of beta-carotene is very important and gives carrots their distinctive orange color. Carrots also contain, in smaller amounts, and essential oils, carbohydrates and nitrogenous composites. They are well-known for their sweetening, healing, diuretic, remineralizing and sedative properties.
In order to assimilate the greatest quantity of the nutrients present in carrots, it is important to chew them well. They are the exception to the rule; they are more nutritious cooked than raw. They are rich in antioxidants Beta Carotene, Alpha Carotene, Calcium and Potassium, and vitamins A, B1, B2, C, and E. Good thing about beta-carotene overdosing, is that the body doesn't convert the excess to vitamin A. If this were the case, serious toxicity problems, such as liver damage, would occur with overdosing of carrots.
