Natural presentation of carotenoids including beta carotene derived from Dunaliella Salina algae. Beta carotene can be converted in the body safely into Vitamin A, as required by the body.

 

Potential applications: Cataracts / macular degeneration (lutein & zeaxanthin) Carotenoids are likely to be beneficial for acne and hyperkeratotic disorders. Colds, respiratory infections, cardiovascular protection, photosensitivity (e.g. solar urticaria), dry eyes, preventing damage through sun exposure, vaginal candidiasis. Ailments of the mucosal surface (epithelial cells). Cystic fibrosis – upwards of 15mg beta-carotene per day have been shown to suppress lipid peroxidation Cognitive function in the elderly may be associated with carotene status.

Beta carotene is required for healthy corpus luteum development, and so is important for healthy reproduction and may help prevent ovarian cysts.

Known contraindications: High vitamin A intake is contra-indicated in pregnancy, whereas the non-toxic carotenoids are suitable for supplementation.

Interactions: The conversion of carotenes to vitamin A depends on several factors, including protein status, thyroid hormones, zinc, and vitamin C. The conversion rate diminishes as carotene intake increases and when serum retinol levels are adequate.

The cleavage of vitamin Beta carotene into retinol requires vitamin E. Vitamin A appears to increase the bioavailability of inorganic iron and improve haemoglobin production.
