It is quite a curious thing that there are different foods in nature that mirror the body parts they provide nutrients for. Here are five such foods.
Carrot. When you slice a carrot crosswise, the center of the carrot looks like the pupil and iris. It even has a different color in the center like an eye color. The beta-carotene helps improve eyesight and decrease the possibility of macular degeneration (loss of vision).
Tomato. When you slice open a tomato, it mimics the different chambers inside the heart. The lycopene in tomatoes reduce the risk of heart disease. If you want to increase the amount of lycopene your body absorbs from the tomato, drizzle it with olive oil. The fat boosts your body’s ability to absorb the lycopene ten times more.
