Antioxidant and vitamin A precursor
Beta carotene is a precursor to vitamin A. It supports immune health, enhances visual acuity, and may quench free radicals. Beta carotene’s antioxidant potential also supports healthy tissues and DNA integrity. As a precursor, the body converts beta carotene to vitamin A as needed. Beta carotene is one of the major dietary antioxidants, offering free radical scavenger activity and provitamin A activity.
