Natural Factors BetaCareAll
BetaCareAll is made from the sea plant Dunaliella salina. D. salina is grown in the clear, clean waters near Whyhalla, Australia, and is harvested mechanically, without chemical additives or solvents. The mixed carotenoids in D.salina are very bioavailable and may be the best natural source of mixed carotenoids available in a nutritional supplement.
D. salina is a boon to vegetarians because it is a vegetable source of vitamin B12 and many amino acids. The carotenoids from D. salina are excellent supplemental carotenoids if you don`t eat enough fruits and vegetables.
Beta carotene: proven to be a potent antioxidant and free radical quencher.
Lycopene: The carotenoid that gives tomatoes and berries their red colour. Men who eat tomatoes regularly reduce their risk of prostate cancer significantly. Lycopene quenches singlet oxygen even more efficiently than beta carotene and vitamin E. It has also been shown to diminish the effect of mutations caused by radiation exposure.
Alpha carotene: The lesser known sibling of beta carotene, is liberally found in carrots, pumpkins, red and yellow peppers, and yellow corn. In the laboratory alpha carotene inhibited the growth of human cancer cells. The inhibitory effect increased as the dose of alpha carotene increased.
Cryptoxanthin: is found in papayas, peaches, tangerines and oranges. When 15,161 women were monitored for 15 years, high levels of cryptoxanthin were associated with a significant reduction in the risk of cervical cancer.
Zeaxanthin: is found in spinach and other green leafy vegetables and is particularly good at protecting the eyes from macular degeneration.
Lutein: is found in spinach and other green leafy vegetables and protects the eye from macular degeneration. Scientists conclude that the carotenoid lutein accounts for the protective effect. Lutein may be the antioxidant specifically protective to the lungs.
