Beta carotene‚ which helps your body produce vitamin A‚ is an essential nutrient. Have you ever heard someone tell you to eat your carrots so you can see in the dark? While that isn't totally accurate‚ beta carotene (the reddish-orange compound in foods like carrots‚ apricots‚ and sweet potatoes) is capable of enhancing visual acuity‚ allowing you to see things in finer detail. Support for healthy vision is especially important as you age.
Even more important‚ however‚ is beta carotene's potential to support healthy tissues and DNA cells. It may promote immunity due to its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants work to fight off free radicals that may be capable of harming your cells.
Beta Carotene with Mixed Carotenoids by Pure Encapsulations is a natural source of this antioxidant. The beta carotene in each easy-to-swallow soft gel capsule is derived from Dunaliella salina algae. In addition to the main ingredient‚ this supplement also provides the mixed carotenoids lutein‚ zeaxanthin‚ cryptoxanthin‚ and alpha carotene. All of these plant-derived retinoids come together in order for your body to convert it into a usable form.
Since mixed carotenoids are water-soluble‚ daily intake is needed in order to avoid a deficiency. While beta carotene itself is fat-soluble‚ it's less likely to build up in your tissues and cause uncomfortable side effects than vitamin A itself.
Each bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Beta Carotene with Mixed Carotenoids contains 90 softgels. Take two to four capsules daily‚ in divided doses with food.
