Beta carotene is converted into vitamin A (retinol) which is an essential vitamin. Beta carotene is a red-orange pigment, known as a carotenoid, found in plants and fruits, especially carrots and colorful vegetables as well as a normal component in breast milk. As we cannot synthesize carotenoids ourselves, they must be supplied as dietary intake or food/pharmaceutical supplements. Humans need vitamin A for healthy skin and mucus membranes, the immune system, and good eye health and vision.
Beta carotene is the most studied carotenoid regarding its potential effects on health. Beta carotene can increase your protection against ultraviolet damage, eye diseases and is important for early development.
Beta carotene supplementation may not be advised if you are a smoker, consult a health care practitioner before use.
