Beta Carotene is a precursor of Vitamin A, as such, your body converts Beta Carotene into Vitamin A. Vitamin A plays a major role in the maintenance of normal healthy skin, vision, immune system and mucous membranes. Just like Vitamin A, in addition to providing sustenance and its nutritive value, Beta Carotene can be helpful in protecting the skin against UV radiation from sunlight by contributing to the process of repairing the damage caused by exposure. Beta Carotene does not raise the same toxicity concerns as taking large amounts of Vitamin A and therefore is more suitable for pregnant women.
Adults: Take ONE capsule daily with the main meal of the day, or as directed by your health professional. For protection against sun damage, take for 2 weeks before your holiday, during the holiday and for two weeks after for a longer lasting tan.
