About Carotenoids

The entire family of Carotenes are found naturally in many vegetables and fruits, specifically, Beta-carotene is found in those that are dark orange or green. The difference between a dark orange carrot and a pale one is its Carotene content. Beta-carotene and other Carotenoid supplementations are an appealing and convenient way to make up the difference. Unfortunately, most diets are lacking in these important nutrients.

Beta and Alpha-carotene are precursors to Vitamin A and act as antioxidant nutrients. They are the only Carotenoids converted to appreciable amounts of Vitamin A. However, the body only converts these Carotenoids into Vitamin A as needed. Beta and Alpha-carotene are important for the immune system and help to provide resistance to infection. They are also necessary for the development and maintenance of healthy epithelial tissue and mucous membranes such as the lining of the lungs, bronchi and other respiratory tissues. Epithelial tissue forms a barrier against bacteria and other foreign substances and aids directly in the prevention of infection and disease. Much attention has been devoted to the entire family of Carotenoids including: Alpha-carotene, Lutein, Lycopene, Zeaxanthin and Capsanthin. Research has demonstrated that some of these Carotenoids have significant antioxidant and protective benefits greater than Beta-carotene.
