100 Softgels - 7,500 mcg (25,000 IU)
Beta-carotene is a substance from plants that the organism converts into vitamin A. It also acts as an antioxidant and an immune system enhancer.

Dark green and orange-yellow vegetables are a good source of beta-carotene. People who dislike or limit their consumption of beta-carotene containing vegetables are at high risk of developing vitamin A deficiency.

Beta-carotene is actually a double molecule of vitamin A. It may be converted to vitamin A in the upper intestine before absorption; beta-carotene can also be converted to vitamin A in the liver. People with diabetes, low thyroid activity, and those who use a lot of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) without antioxidants such as vitamin E have lowered ability to convert beta-carotene to vitamin A. Assimilation of vitamin A and carotenes is helped by the presence of bile salts and fatty acids in the intestine.

Beta-carotene performs several functions. Some of them are:

Eyesight - beta-carotene is needed for the formation of rhodopsin, or visual purple, which allows people to see at night. When a person lacks beta-carotene, there is a lag period in generating visual purple, resulting in the inability to see well at night, termed “night blindness”. Beta-carotene also helps maintain the health of the cornea, the eye covering. Beta-carotene deficiency may allow irritation or inflammation of eye tissue to occur more easily.

Growth and tissue healing - beta-carotene is involved in bone tissue formation and promoting healthy teeth. After tissue injury or surgery, beta-carotene is needed for the repair of tissues and to help protect them from infection.

Healthy skin - beta-carotene stimulates growth of the base layer of skin cells.
It helps the cells differentiate normally (progress from less to more mature cell forms) and gives them their structural integrity. It does this for both external skin cells and the body’s inner skin, the mucous membrane linings of the nose, eyes, intestinal tract, respiratory lining, and bladder. By this function, it also helps protect these areas from cell degeneration and dangerous conditions.

Antioxidation - beta-carotene helps protect the organism (particularly cell membranes and tissue linings) from the irritating effects of free radicals or unstable molecules by neutralizing them. Beta-carotene also protects tissues from the toxic singlet oxygen radical. This function usually requires an amount higher than the RDA recommendations, perhaps 10,000 to 20,000 IUs per day or more. Throughout its antioxidant effects, beta-carotene helps protect the body from irritating effects of smoke and other pollutants.

Cellular health - beta-carotene has shown to improve immune response by stimulating T-helper cell activity. It seems to avoid cell degeneration while maintaining the immune system alert and in optimum condition.
