What is Beta Carotene?
Beta-carotene is a type of pigment found in plants, especially carrots and colorful vegetables. The name beta-carotene is derived from the Latin name for carrot. It gives yellow and orange fruits and vegetables their rich hues. Beta-carotene is also used as a coloring agent for foods such as margarine.
What does Beta Carotene do? Beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A (retinol) by the body. Vitamin A is needed for good vision and eye health, for a strong immune system, and for healthy skin and mucus membranes. While large amounts of vitamin A in supplement form can be toxic, the body will convert only as much vitamin A from beta-carotene as it needs. That means beta-carotene is considered a safe source of vitamin A.
Like all other carotenoids, beta-carotene is an antioxidant. It scavenges free radiclas. Free radicals cause damage to cells through a process known as oxidation. Over time, this damage can lead to a number of chronic illnesses.
