Natural Beta Carotene Vitamin A source from Betatene®
Betatene® provides a unique combination of important natural carotenoids that are found in many fruits and vegetables. Betatene's rich and unique mixture of natural carotenoids include Beta-Carotene, Alpha-Carotene, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Cryptoxanthin. Betatene® supplies several natural isomers which consists of a mixture of cis and trans isomers of beta-carotene, whereas synthetic beta-carotene consists mainly of the trans isomer.
Beta-carotene serves as an important safe source of Vitamin A, an essential nutrient. Supplements of vitamin A can cause toxicity at high doses, but beta-carotene, also called provitamin A, is converted into vitamin A (retinol) only as the body requires it, preventing vitamin A toxicity.
Carotenoids, a beneficial group of nutrients, are antioxidants that quench free radicals, which are hazardous molecules that can damage cells and contribute to aging. Beta-carotene with other carotenoids are also being studied for their antioxidant activity and potential effects on immune system support, skin health and eye health.
