Product Description:

  • Bio-Carotene are small capsules with 9 mg pure betacarotene equivalent to 1500 µg retinol equivalents. This dose is about 188% of the daily reference intake level for betacarotene.
  • Bio-Carotene is manufactured in a way where betacarotene is mixed into an oil matrix that keeps it stable and increases bio-availability. In fact, studies document that betacarotene in supplement form has better bio-availability than when you get it from vegetables.
  • For optimal absorption in the body Bio-Carotene should be taken with a meal.

What Is Betacarotene:

  • Betacarotene belongs to a group of yellow and red plant compounds with a coloring effect. Betacarotene is the substance that provides carrots, among others, with their orange color.
  • Betacarotene is also a pro-vitamin that gets converted into vitamin A in the amounts needed by the body. In some parts of the world, betacarotene is the major source of vitamin A.
  • Vitamin A also contributes to normal cell division and it is necessary for normal functioning of the immune system.
  • Betacarotene and vitamin A
  • Betacarotene is a good vegetable source of vitamin A.
  • Betacarotene is fat-soluble and is therefore absorbed more readily when ingested with some kind of fat. When betacarotene gets converted into vitamin A it contributes to maintaining normal skin and mucous membranes.
  • It is of importance for normal cell division and immune function. Moreover, it helps to maintain normal vision.
  • Ingestion of food and dietary supplements with large quantities (30 mg or more) of betacarotene may provide the skin with a harmless yellowish color that some people find attractive.
  • The color is a result of betacarotene accumulating in the subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis), mainly on the hands and feet.
  • This color vanishes as soon as the intake of betacarotene is reduced.

Betacarotene and smokers:

  • In some countries dietary supplements containing betacarotene must carry a warning for smokers, telling them not to use the product.
  • This warning is based on research showing that large doses of beta-carotene taken by heavy smokers may increase their risk of lung cancer.
  • There is no evidence suggesting that betacarotene supplements are harmful for non-smokers.
  • In addition, there is no reason to fear getting too much vitamin A from betacarotene, as the body stops converting it once its stores are saturated.

Good betacarotene sources:

  • Betacarotene occurs naturally in several different foods, some of the best sources being:
  • green vegetables
  • broccoli
  • carrots
  • bell pepper
  • squash
  • apricots
  • The betacarotene content in vegetables may vary quite a lot, depending on factors like the soil they were cultivated in, fertilizers, wind, weather conditions, and the subsequent treatment of the crop

How To Use:

  • 1 capsule daily, unless otherwise advised. Do not exceed recommended amount. To be taken with food
