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.
Due to legislation, we cannot outline the specific functions of some ingredients, however we encourage customers to responsibly use the wealth of information online to find their uses.
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?
