Bullseye Bisque

Beta-Carotene rich Bullseye Bisque

To be a precision archer like Merida, you’ve got to have a pretty keen eye. And super foods like carrots and yams are loaded with the antioxidant Beta-Carotene, which is converted by the body into Vitamin A. Vitamin A, or retinol, helps the body’s immune system, and supports good eye health and vision.
