Solgar Beta Carotene
Solgar Beta carotene capsules provides a natural source of beta carotene’s meaning it has a mixture of carotenoids found in nature derived from plants. This includes beta carotene, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, lutien and alpha carotene. Carotenes are such important compounds. They are similar in structure to Vitamin A so get turned into Vitamin A inside the body so there is no risk of overdosing on vitamin A making this a safe way to take Vitamin A throughout pregnancy. The carotenes are a family of compounds that are red or orange and found in nature The body collects these and deposits them into the retina and in the eyes and under the skin. There it protects the cells from the ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Carotene’s are therefore used to help reduce the effects of sunburn, and also for treatment of macular degeneration and cataracts which are caused in part by oxidation. The carotene’s are also known to play a part in preventing changes to the cervical cells so early detection of CIN 1, 11 or 111 cells can be given 3 months of treatment with carotenoid’s before removal to see if reversal takes place. If you are thinking about taking carotene’s because of any issues like this be sure to talk to a practitioner such as ourselves as well as your doctor so that we can guide you with supplement use.
