Beta Carotene Beta Carotene

Swanson Beta Carotene is a dietary supplement that contains beta-carotene. It is an organic chemical compound of plant origin, a natural precursor to vitamin A.

β-carotene belongs to a group of natural plant pigments called carotenoids. It can be produced by plants and some sea algae. Beta-carotene has a high biological activity and is an important nutrient that should be included in every well-balanced diet. In the human body, beta-carotene acts primarily as a precursor to vitamin A and it is also a powerful antioxidant.

β-carotene is considered a safe source of vitamin A. Thanks to the unique chemical structure, this compound can be easily converted into vitamin A. Importantly, the human body can control this conversion thanks to some special mechanisms. As a result, the external administration of β-carotene does not carry the risk of overdosing vitamin A, the excess of which is toxic.

β-carotene promotes proper vision. The vitamin A formed from beta-carotene forms the so-called visual purple (rhodopsin), which enables seeing after dusk. Moreover, vitamin A has a beneficial effect on the condition of the mucous membranes and prevents excessive dryness of the cornea and conjunctivas.

β-carotene is a powerful antioxidant. It effectively quenches singlet oxygen and easily removes reactive oxygen species, especially peroxide radicals, from the body. An adequate supply of natural antioxidants is an important element of health prevention and is one of the ways to slow down the body’s aging.

β-carotene has a positive effect on the skin's condition. Scientific studies have shown that increased supply of β-carotene during skin exposure to sunlight protects against photosensitization and reduces the risk of sunburn. Besides, this compound is conducive to alteration of the skin's tone, thus giving it a warm tone and making it look naturally tanned.

In summary, Swanson Beta Carotene is a dietary supplement that evens out the level of vitamin A in a safe and controlled way. It is especially recommended not only for people who want to improve the condition and color of the skin but also for sunbathing lovers.
