Beta-Carotene is a dietary supplement formulated to promote healthy function of the immune system, eyes and vision, hair, skin, and nails. Beta-Carotene is available in softgels from Natura-Genics®.
Beta-carotene is a type of substance called carotenoid. Carotenoids are pigments and are responsible for giving fruits, plants, and vegetables their bright yellow, red, and orange colors. Some carotenoids such as beta-carotene are converted into vitamin A in the body.
Benefits of Beta-Carotene
Due to its antioxidant effects, beta-carotene may support lung health as people age. Research has shown that high-beta carotene levels compensate for some of the damage done to the lungs caused by oxygen-free radicals. Oxidative stress is believed to play a major role in the pathogenesis of airway obstruction. Vitamin A may also support a lower risk of respiratory illnesses.
The conversion of beta-carotene into vitamin A in the body supports optimum immune function. Vitamin A is known as an anti-inflammatory vitamin and plays a critical role in supporting immune function. It is involved in the development of the immune system and plays regulatory roles in cellular immune responses and humoral immune processes.
Vitamin A is essential to promote good vision and eye health. Research has found that people with high blood levels of carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, may have a reduced risk of certain eye health conditions. Beta-carotene, a provitamin of vitamin A, supports the proper function of the cornea, which is the protective outer layer of the eye. The antioxidant properties in beta-carotene also promote vision health by protecting the eye from oxidative stress.
Individuals looking to give their skin a little boost may find some support from beta-carotene. Some studies have shown that antioxidant micronutrients promote protection from UV radiation and help maintain skin health and appearance. Carotenoids are converted to retinol by the liver. Retinol helps promote overall skin health both topically and orally. Adequate levels of vitamin A in the body also promotes stronger and healthier skin and nails.
