What is Beta Carotene?
Beta Carotene is a member of the carotenoid family of plant pigments. It is also known as pro-vitamin A, as it is converted by the body into vitamin A. Vitamin A only occurs in animal tissues (particularly liver, fish liver and dairy products), whereas Beta Carotene occurs in plant tissues (particularly carrots).
Why do customers take Beta Carotene?
Beta Carotene is converted by the body into vitamin A (retinol). Vitamin A contributes to maintaining normal skin, vision, immune functioning and mucous membranes.
How does Beta Carotene work?
Bio-Carotene contains 9mg of Beta Carotene per capsule (equivalent to 4 large carrots) in an easily digestible and stable form. Manufactured in an oil matrix to keep it stable and to ensure good bioavailability. Studies document that Beta Carotene supplement form has better bioavailability than when you get it from vegetables.
