Vitamin A in a Non Toxic Formula is Known as Beta Carotene
Beta-carotene is the pigment responsible for giving yellow vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes their coloring. It is one of the major carotenoids and one of the most biologically active of more than 1,000 carotenoids in food. Beta-carotene is one of the most important naturally occurring antioxidants.
Beta-carotene may be referred to as provitamin A in some literature because the liver easily converts it into vitamin A (retinol). While excessive amounts of vitamin A may be toxic, the body will convert only as much beta-carotene as needed, making it a safe source for vitamin A.
How Vitabase Beta-Carotene Can Benefit You
Beta-carotene is one of a group of red, orange, and yellow pigments called carotenoids. Beta-carotene and other carotenoids provide approximately 50% of the Vitamin A needed in the American diet. Beta-carotene can be found in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. It can also be made in a laboratory.
Beta-carotene is used to decrease asthma symptoms caused by exercise; to prevent certain cancers, heart disease, cataracts, and age related macular degeneration (AMD); and to treat AIDS, alcoholism, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, epilepsy, headache, heartburn, high blood pressure, infertility, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, and skin disorders including psoriasis and vitiligo.
Beta-carotene is also in used in malnourished (underfed) women to reduce the chance of death and night blindness during pregnancy, as well as diarrhea and fever after giving birth.
As a powerful antioxidant, beta-carotene destroys free radicals including singlet oxygen. This oxygen is missing an electron and is very damaging to human tissue if not quickly scavenged.
