Beta-carotene is a dietary supplement‚ a carotenoid which is converted in the body to Vitamin A and supports anti-oxidant protection.
• Beta-carotene is a safe precursor of Vitamin A. Human intestinal enzymes convert dietary betacarotene into active Vitamin A‚ this conversion is based on the need for Vitamin A since even very large amounts of beta-carotene do not increase plasma or liver Vitamin A levels.
1 mg of beta-carotene provides 1667 I.U. of Vitamin A activity. Normally‚ Beta-carotene not converted to Vitamin A is absorbed intact and has other functions in the body.
• Beta-carotene is an important anti-oxidant that protects healthy cells from oxidative and free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable chemicals formed in the body during metabolism and from exposure to environmental
sources such as pollution and cigarette smoke.
•Free radicals are necessary for energy metabolism and immune function‚ but when an excessive number of free radicals are formed‚ they can attack healthy cells‚ especially their membrane lipids and proteins. This leads to
cellular dysfunction and contributes to a number of degenerative diseases.
• Beta Carotene efficiently quenches a chemically reactive species of oxygen called singlet oxygen. Singlet oxygen participates in oxidative reactions which can impair or destroy important cellular components‚ such as membranes‚ nucleic acids(DNA) and enzymes.
• Research Studies have proven the importance of beta-carotene for normal immune function. The immune benefits of beta-carotene are due to its Vitamin A precursor role and its anti-oxidant function. Beta-carotene is present in selected fruits and vegetables such as carrots‚ sweet potatoes and green leafy vegetables.
