Beta Carotene is classed as a provitamin or precursor to vitamin A and is found only in plants. It is converted to vitamin A in the liver and intestines as required by the body. As the quantity of beta carotene increases, the proportion of the absorbed material converted to vitamin A decreases and more of the carotene enters the bloodstream unchanged.
Beta Carotene is stored in the fatty tissues of the body and circulates in the bloodstream, where it has been found to be a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger.
Lamberts natural beta carotene is extracted in the natural form from dunaliella salina, a pink alga which lives on the surface of salt lakes and which contains small amounts of other, mixed carotenoids.
The growth of the organism is controlled in a high salt water environment which precludes contamination by harmful micro-organisms. beta carotene is full of antioxidants, which help to neutralise free radicals, protecting our cells from damage.
Beta carotene is non-toxic and good for the immune system. It has also been known to lower the risks of lung and prostate cancer. The naturally produced beta carotene is much like that found in many fresh fruit and vegetables.
