WHAT IS BETA-CAROTENE?
Beta-carotene is a plant based precursor of vitamin A, found in carrots and other colourful vegetables. Beta-carotene is converted into vitamin A by the body, according to the body's needs. Studies show that beta-carotene has powerful antioxidant capabilities, which means it can neutralise free radicals; the unstable molecules that our cells are faced with on a daily basis.
Our beta-carotene supplement is made with Dunaliella salina, a type of micro-algae found in sea salt fields. To survive the salty conditions, this micro-algae has high concentrations of beta-carotene to protect against the intense light.
We harness the nutrition from the algae using a vegetable cellulose capsule, which enables us to avoid the addition of unnecessary chemicals, excipients, binders and coatings that are commonly found in tablet supplements. A vegetable cellulose capsule is designed specifically to break down naturally within the acid of your stomach, ensuring that your body absorbs the nutrients during digestion.*WHAT DOES VITAMIN A DO?
