Beta Carotene

Beta Carotene

Beta carotene is a red-orange pigment found in plants and fruits, especially carrots, and it is this compound that is responsible for the vibrant colours of many other fruits and vegetables. The name beta carotene comes from the Greek "beta" and Latin "carota" (carrot). It is known as "pro-vitamin A" or "retinol" and is converted into vitamin A in the body, which is needed for healthy vision, skin, and mucus membranes. It is also powerfully antioxidant, helping to protect the body from damaging free radicals.

Beta carotene is fat soluble so it is necessary to consume healthy fats in order for it to be properly absorbed.

Solgar Natural Source Oceanic Beta Carotene (60 Softgels)

Solgar Natural Source Oceanic Beta Carotene provides one of the best, natural forms of Beta-carotene.Carotenes are specifically found in vegetables and fruits, with beta-carotene found in those which are dark orange or green.

Some are precursors to Vitamin A and beta-carotene has antioxidant qualities, helping to minimise the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are produced by the body when you breathe, digest food, exercise or even sleep. They are naturally occuring as they are created by emotional stress, ultraviolet light, radiation and air pollution. Free radicals damage the body by causing deterioration of the cells, lower the defences against diseases and putting the body into a ‘stress’ state.

To counter the effect of free radicals, a balance of antioxidants is required. The most important Antioxidants include: Beta-carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc, Selenium and components found in certain plants including Turmeric, and Ginkgo Biloba. Antioxidants can be obtained by eating a healthy and balanced diet, but taking a supplement might be desirable to achieve an optimal intake of antioxidants.Solgar Natural Source Oceanic Beta Carotene provides one of the best natural forms of oceanic beta-carotene from a sea algae.

This sea algae, Dunaliella salina is a green micro-algae and can be found in sea salt fields. It is a strong antioxidant as it creates Beta-carotene, as well as other carotenoids such as Zeaxanthin, Cryptoxanthin, Lutein and Alpha-carotene. One softgel a day could help your cells fight the damage caused by free radicals due to exposure to ultraviolet light and deterioration of cells.

All Solgar products meet our industry recognized “Gold Standard” for excellence. Made using naturally sourced ingredients and innovating since 1947, Solgar is your perfect supplement to good health.

Marigold oil
For the first time I'v tried the marigold oil to use on scars from recent surgery. It seems very good but the dropper on the bottle doesn't work at all well I'v had to remove it.
