NOW® Natural Beta Carotene is a precursor of vitamin A that fights against free radicals, supports healthy vision, and protects your skin.

What is NOW® Natural Beta Carotene?

Vitamin A is found in two forms: retinol and beta-carotene. Retinol comes from animal-derived foods. Beta-carotene however is a type of carotenoid that’s found primarily in plants and gives orange and yellow vegetables their color.

The main benefit to beta-carotene is that it may serve as either a powerful antioxidant or converts to retinol (vitamin A) based on what your body needs. This plant-based pigment also plays a critical role in maintaining healthy vision, skin and neurological function.

Health Benefits of NOW® Natural Beta Carotene:

  • Helps maintain healthy eyes and clear vision
  • Protects the skin from UV induced irritation and redness
  • Fights free radicals that can damage the body
  • Reduces respiratory issues such as shortness of breath and wheezing
  • Why Our NOW® Natural Beta Carotene is a Good Choice!

    The vitamin A we receive from beta-carotene is plant based compared to retinol which is derived from animals. That makes NOW® Natural Beta Carotene ideal for vegetarians who are looking for a clean source of vitamin A.

    Get your dose of vitamin A with 25,000IU of natural, high quality Beta Carotene.

    Beta-Carotene: Main Image

    Beta-carotene is a substance from plants that the body converts into vitamin A. It also acts as an antioxidant and an immune system booster.

    • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
    • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
    • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

    Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

    For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
