What is Beta-Carotene?
β-Carotene is an organic, strongly colored red-orange pigment abundant in plants and fruits. The human body converts beta carotene into vitamin A (retinol) – beta carotene is a precursor of vitamin A. We need vitamin A for healthy skin and mucus membranes, our immune system, and good eye health and vision. Vitamin A can be sourced from the food we eat (see: Wikipedia).
