Vitacost Carotene Complex with Pro Vitamin A Description

Promotes immune system health and antioxidant activity in the body.*

What is Vitacost Carotene Complex?


Vitacost Carotene Complex is an advanced carotenoid nutrition complex that derives its healthful benefits from carrot juice, lemon grass and spirulina. It includes beneficial amounts of carotenes, including lutein, zeaxanthin, alpha-carotene, beta carotene and cryptoxanthins.

 

Carotenoids are fat-soluble pigments found in plants. Algae, many fungi and bacteria, as well as higher plant life have the ability to produce carotenoids. Carotene refers to carotenoids that contain only carbon and hydrogen such as alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lycopene.

 

Alpha-carotene and beta-carotene (which converts to vitamin A in the body) are responsible for the color of carrots. Beta-carotene is also found in pumpkins, mangoes, apricots, spinach and parsley. Dunaliella salina, a unicellular green algae, is another natural source of beta-carotene.

 

Xanthophylls are carotenoids that contain hydroxyl groups such as lutein, zeaxanthin and beta-cryptoxanthin, or keto groups such as canthaxanthin. Lutein and zeaxanthin are plant pigments found in spinach, collard greens, kale and mustard greens. Cryptoxanthins are derived from pumpkins and mangoes, as well as red capsicum.

 

How does Vitacost Carotene Complex support health?

  • Promotes immune system health.*
  • Promotes cognitive health.*
  • Maintains healthy skin.*
  • Promotes antioxidant activity.*

Why choose Vitacost Carotene Complex?

  • Convenient way to obtain carotenes without consuming large amounts of foods containing carotene.
  • Supplies 10,000 IU of vitamin A per 1-capsule serving.
  • Each bottle contains 120 servings.
  • Exceptional quality at an extraordinary value.

Please note: This formula has been improved to contain less filler. The new, concentrated version features smaller, easier-to-swallow capsules and a natural beige color with visible green “specks” (from the natural spirulina content).

Could not see any evidence this was working I bought this for my skin but experienced no change in my skin's condition while taking this. I would not buy this again, or recommend to a friend. September 29, 2010
Hard to tell how much it helps I believe in these products but I do not know to what extent of health benifits they are producing. February 16, 2010
Smells delicious! Carotene is vitally important for your eyes and skin. Compared to Solaray Food Carotene (25000 IU), which isn't available here at Vitacost, this product seems to be similarly potent if I take the same dose (ie 3x the pills). The price is about the same per dose. I do love that this product smells fresh, like I have a box of vegetable goodness! January 21, 2010
