Beta Carotene

Beta Carotene

Beta carotene (β-Carotene) is an antioxidant that is converted by the body into vitamin A (retinol). Vitamin A is essential in maintaining health, and when taken as supplements can lower risks of disease. Carotenoids also maintain normal skin, vision, immune functioning, and mucous membranes.

Bio-Carotene contains 9mg of Beta Carotene per capsule (equivalent to 4 large carrots) in an easily digestible and stable form. Manufactured in an oil matrix to keep it stable and to ensure good bioavailability. Studies document that Beta Carotene supplement form has better bioavailability than when you get it from vegetables.

    Beta Carotene is a member of the carotenoid family of plant pigments. It is also known as pro-vitamin A, as it is converted by the body into vitamin A. Vitamin A only occurs in animal tissues (particularly liver, fish liver and dairy products), whereas Beta Carotene occurs in plant tissues (particularly carrots).

    We recommend 1 capsule per day, or as directed by a physician.

    Note: Do not chew the capsule; swallow it whole.

    Relative to the food we eat, the size of individual nutrients are actually incredibly small. As a result, we need to use units other than grammes (g) to describe them. Here's what the common units for nutrients are:

    Grammes (G)- often used to describe nutritional powders. Most teaspoons of powder weigh approximately 5g.

    Milligrams (Mg)- 1000mg is equal to 1g

    Micrograms (Mcg or μg)- 1000μg is equal to 1mg

    International Units (IU)- Slightly more complex than milligrams (mg) and micrograms (μg), International Units measure differently from nutrient to nutrient. The most common nutrients that are likely to be measured in IU are vitamins D, E and A.

    • Vitamin D: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.025 μg of D2 or D3
    • Vitamin A: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.3 mcg retinol
    • Beta-carotene (provitamin A): 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.6 μg of beta carotene
    • Vitamin E: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.67 mg d-alpha-tocopherol

    Aly Topping - 16th August 2013:

    I love having a tan! I have found since taking carotene that it helps prolong my tan. I usually go quite red in the sun which then develops into a tan but i have found that the redness appears far less now.
