1 Answer:

Hello Ryan! Thank you for asking at

Salak is a fruit that contains fiber, protein, sugar, potassium, iron, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin C and vitamin A. In addition, there are also antioxidants in salak. One of the antioxidants that can be found in salak is beta carotene. Beta carotene plays an important role in eye health. Beta carotene can reduce the risk of aging eye tissue and slow down the occurrence of cataracts in the eye. Some sources say that the beta carotene content in salak is 5 times greater than carrots. However, it does not mean that the benefits given are 5 times greater. The need for adult human beta carotene per day is 4.8 mg. The recommended daily intake for beta carotene is 3-6 mg. In 100 grams of salak (1 salak fruit weighs about 78 grams), there are about 3 mg of beta carotene. High beta carotene content can also be found in oranges, ripe papaya, and red watermelon. Although salak and other fruits that contain beta carotene are good for the eyes, beta carotene alone is not enough to treat eye problems. If you have eye problems, you should consult an ophthalmologist.

That's my explanation. May be useful.
