Beta Carotene General Information
Beta Carotene is derived from the Latin name for carrot and belongs to a family of natural chemicals known as carotenes or carotenoids. Carotenes give yellow and orange fruits and vegetables their rich colors. Beta Carotene is also used as a coloring agent for foods such as margarine. The bright colors found in nature and the molecules that cause them have always fascinated organic chemists. The earliest studies on carotenoids date back to the beginning of the 19th century. Wackenroder first isolated beta-carotene in 1831, and many other carotenoids were discovered and named during the 1800s, although their structures were still unknown. The human body converts Beta-carotene into vitamin A (retinol). It is an antioxidant. Eating foods rich in Beta carotene protects the body from damaging molecules called free radicals (in the body free radicals are high-energy particles that ricochet wildly and damage cells).

Beta Carotene Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Some studies have indicated that people who take Beta-Carotene supplements may be at greater risk for heart disease and cancer, making researchers suspect that multiple nutrients found in a healthy balanced diet may be more effective than supplements alone in protecting against cancer and heart disease. Beta-Carotene offers protection from cancer only when other important antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, are present in the diet. Some studies have suggested that Beta-Carotene can be beneficial to people with scleroderma, a connective-tissue disorder, but it is suggested you consume foods rich in Beta carotene to meet your body’s needs. Studies also have suggested that taking high doses of Beta-Carotene may decrease sensitivity to the sun. This is helpful for people with skin conditions caused by sunlight exposure, such as the development of hives or eczema upon exposure to the sun. Click on the links below for more information.

Beta Carotene Dosage Information
The best sources of Beta-Carotene are yellow, orange, and green leafy fruits and vegetables (such as carrots, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, cantaloupe, and winter squash). Generally, the greater the intensity of the color of the fruit or vegetable, the more Beta-Carotene it contains. In taking supplements, it is important to follow the guidance of an appropriate health care professional to ensure the proper dosages can be taken for your symptoms. Beta Carotene supplements come in capsule and gel forms and should be taken with meals containing at least 3 g of fat to ensure absorption.

Beta Carotene Safety & Interaction Information
For those who smoke or drink heavily, this supplement should be used with caution due to the possibility of an increase in the risk of heart disease and cancer. Even though Beta Carotene offers protection from sunlight for people with certain skin sensitivities, it does not protect you from sunburn. Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.
