Beta carotene is a kind of carotenoid, not only found in carrots, but also in green and red fruits and vegetables. It is an orange-yellow fat-soluble compound, which is unstable when exposed to oxygen, heat, and light, and is relatively stable in weak alkalis. After being metabolized in the human body, it can produce retinol which has significant vitamin A biological activity. Beta carotene powder also has antioxidant properties and may help in preventing cancer and other diseases. Humans cannot synthesize β-carotene by themselves, so we get them through food and healthcare supplements.
KS β-carotene including powder 1% &10%, β-carotene oil 30% and high content 96%. All of these specifications are orange-red colors with high quality. Welcome to inquiry if you are interested in them.
The role of beta carotene is mainly to help the body convert vitamin A, which mainly has the following benefits,
Light from the outside is projected on the retina and converted into neural signals that are interpreted by the brain. Rod cells in the retina can perceive black and white images and recognize the outline of objects in poor lighting conditions, such as at night. The photoreceptor action of rod cells requires the help of rhodopsin. Rhodopsin is composed of rhodopsin and retinal to assist in imaging. Therefore, a lack of vitamin A will affect the synthesis of rhodopsin. Causes the inability to see at night, resulting in night blindness.
Human epithelial tissue cells can secrete a glycoprotein, which reduces the water evaporation on the surface of the tissue and keeps the tissue moist. Vitamin A can help synthesize mucin. When vitamin A is lacking, mucin will also decrease, making the skin rough and dry, increasing the chance of bacterial infection.
3. Antioxidant effect
Beta carotene is an antioxidant that is widely added to healthy foods to help fight cancer and prevent cataracts.
