Viral carrot salad is said to balance hormones, but how true is that?

We're almost 100% sure you've seen a TikTok video of carrot salad, which according to tiktokers, helps with hormone balance as well as metabolism. According to people who consume it, it has incredible benefits, but expert Laura Purdy says that in fact, there is still no study that shows that carrot salad is directly related to balancing hormones, and if you want a quick result for balancing them, maybe you don't have to rely on the internet alone.

"A recipe like raw carrot salad likely won't harm your hormonal health, however, there is no scientific evidence linking hormone balancing to raw carrots. If you are concerned about hormonal health, it is very important that you visit and consult with a specialist doctor," says Purdy.

However, if you want to try carrot salad as a quick and healthy recipe, you can follow this preparation method:

Peel the carrots and cut them into strips, so that they look like pasta. Next, add apple cider vinegar, a pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Remember, it is very important not to add a large number of ingredients, as you can reduce the taste and of course, the benefits that tiktokers say you get from this salad.
