Bio-Carotene is a dietary supplement which contains 9mg of pure, highly absorb-able beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is the natural precursor of vitamin A (retinol), and is partially converted into vitamin A in the body. Beta-Carotene is also a powerful antioxidant which neutralises harmful free radicals, therefore increasing the body's natural defence against disease.
The conversion from beta-carotene to retinol takes place in the intestinal mucosa. Vitamin A is fat soluble and can there fore be overdosed, but beta-carotene is water soluble and completely safe, even in high quantities.
Beta-carotene and vitamin A are required for normal growth and development, for tissue maintenance and repair, and for bone and tooth formation. Beta--carotene protects the skin from the effects of exposure to ultraviolet light, and helps maintain normal fertility.
One Capsule provides:
Vitamin A 1500ug From Beta-Carotene 9mg
Take 1 capsule per day or as directed by physician.
- Very high intake of beta-carotene (more than 100,000iu/day) may cause areas of the skin to take on an orange tone, which is harmless.
- Patients with diabetes, renal or liver disease, or with hyperthyroidism should take beta-carotene with caution.
