Beta Carotene (Natural) - 180 Softgels
 
  • Essential Nutrition
  • 25,000 IU
  • D. salina with Mixed Carotenoids
  • Converted to Vitamin A in Body

 

Natural Beta-Carotene contains additional antioxidant carotenoids, Alpha-Carotene, Zeaxanthin, Cryptoxanthin and Lutein as naturally occuring in D. salina sea algae.  This natural balance of related carotenoids is what makes this product more bioavailable than common synthetic Beta-Carotene.  Natural Beta-Carotene is a fat soluble food source of pro-Vitamin A.

Beta-carotene, like all carotenoids, is an antioxidant. An antioxidant is a substance that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules; it protects the body from free radicals. Free radicals damage cells through oxidation. Eventually, the damage caused by free radicals can cause several chronic illnesses. Several studies have shown that antioxidants help people's immune systems, protect against free radicals, and lower the risk of developing cancer and heart disease.

Beta Carotene is the most well-known and researched member of the carotenoid family. Beta Carotene benefits include powerful anti-aging properties and protection from damage caused by free radicals. Beta carotene is a water-soluble provitamin-A, meaning that it can be converted by the body into Vitamin A.

This carotenoid works in combination with the other carotenoids and other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, lipoic acid, and the antioxidant enzymes produced in your body: superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase.

Studies show that people who eat a diet rich in carotenoids, had a much lower risk of breast, colon cancer and lung cancer. One way that carotenoids fight cancer is through their antioxidant capacity. Another way that they help is to keep your cells in proper communication, an effective preventive measure against the growth of cancer cells.

People who have good levels of beta carotene have lower risk of heart disease. Beta carotene works with vitamin E to reduce the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol, which lowers the risk of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.
