Beta Carotene Overview
Body First’s Beta Carotene provides antioxidant support and enhances the effects of other antioxidants and vitamins. Beta carotene may lower risk of heart disease, improve respiratory function, promote skin health, help prevent diabetes and protect the immune system. *
Beta carotene is an antioxidant carotenoid that can be converted into Vitamin A in the body. Beta carotene works together with vitamin C and vitamin E to protect the skin against ultraviolet radiation. All three are necessary to exhibit their full protective benefits, suggesting that antioxidants work most effectively in conjunction with each other. Beta carotene and vitamin A work to promote skin, eye, and heart health. Beta carotene’s diverse antioxidant properties help oxidize free radicals and promote immune system function. Research supports that beta carotene may increase respiratory capacity and protect against asthma, emphysema and even bronchitis. *
