What Is Carrot Extract Beta-Carotene?
Beta-carotene is an antioxidant that converts to vitamin A and plays a very important role in health. It’s responsible for the red, yellow, and orange coloration of some fruits and vegetables.
Vitamin A is found in two primary forms: active vitamin A and beta-carotene. Active vitamin A is called retinol, and it comes from animal-derived foods. This pre-formed vitamin A can be used directly by the body without needing to convert the vitamin first. Provitamin A carotenoids are different because they need to be converted to retinol by the body after they’re ingested. Beta-carotene is a type of carotenoid that’s found primarily in plants; it needs to be converted to active vitamin A before it can be utilized by the body.
There’s plenty of evidence that eating high-antioxidant foods that contain beta-carotene is good for your health and may help prevent serious conditions.
Benefits of Carrot Extract Beta-Carotene
1. Has Powerful Antioxidant Activity
Beta-carotene and other carotenoids have antioxidant activities and are valued for their ability to prevent chronic disease. They protect the body from damaging free radicals, which are the primary cause of aging and degeneration. Studies have shown an inverse relationship between the presence of various cancers and dietary carotenoids or blood carotenoid levels. However, it appears that carotenoids can promote health when taken at dietary levels but may have adverse effects when taken in high doses by people who smoke or who have been exposed to asbestos. Researchers are still determining the proper doses for carotenoids to be beneficial and not dangerous. Nonetheless, it’s clear that consuming foods containing beta-carotene and other antioxidants helps lower levels of inflammation and fight oxidative stress within the body.
2. Supports Healthy Pregnancy
The American Pediatrics Association cites vitamin A as one of the most critical vitamins during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Vitamin A plays an important role in the healthy development of the fetus and the newborn, with lung development and maturation being particularly important. It’s also needed for infants and toddlers to build a strong immune system. According to research published in the European Journal of Nutrition, there should be a 40 percent increase in vitamin A intake for pregnant women and a 90 percent increase for breastfeeding women. It’s safest to get beta-carotene from the foods you eat, so women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should consume more yellow and orange fruits and vegetables. If you do need a supplement to get enough this carotenoid, use it under the supervision of your health care provider.
3. Protects the Skin
Beta-carotene metabolism takes place in a wide variety of organs, including the skin. Many studies have found that it helps prevent the formation of UV-induced erythema, or skin irritation and redness. Although it can’t be compared to the efficacy of sunscreen, there’s evidence that beta-carotene can protect the skin against sunburn by increasing the basal defense against skin damage caused by UV light.
4. Carrot Extract Beta-Carotene Can Protects Your Eyes
Beta-carotene and other antioxidants may help delay the progression of age-related macular degeneration, which causes vision changes that are sometimes so severe that irreversible legal blindness can occur. Antioxidants are effective in slowing down the progression of macular degeneration symptoms because they can help prevent oxidative stress, which plays a significant role in the degeneration of cells and nerves in the retina/macula.
The Age-Related Eye Disease Study established that a combination of dietary antioxidants, including zinc, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E, effectively slowed the progression of macular degeneration.
5. Treats Oral Leukoplakia
A study conducted at the University of Arizona confirmed the activity of beta-carotene in patients with oral leukoplakia, which is highlighted by thickened, white patches that form on your gums and inside your cheeks. Most leukoplakia patches are benign, but some may be early signs of cancer. Fifty patients were given 60 milligrams of beta-carotene a day for six months, and then participants were chosen to either continue treatment or use placebo therapy for 12 additional months. The results showed that 52 percent (26 patients) of the participants had a clinical response to treatment, and 23 of the 26 patients who responded positively completed the second, randomized phase of the study.
6. Improves Respiratory Health
Research published in the European Respiratory Journal suggests that eating fruits with beta-carotene can improve respiratory and pulmonary function. In comparison with eating fruit rarely or never, people who ate fruit at least once a day had reduced respiratory symptoms, such as phlegm production, shortness of breath, and wheezing. Fruits of any kind help to fight respiratory conditions, including mango, papaya, and cantaloupe.
