Beta Carotene Capsules Product Description
Buy Vitamin A Supplements in the form of Beta Carotene Capsules online at Wholesale Nutrition. Each Beta Carotene capsule contains 15 mg of Beta Carotene, equivalent to 25,000 International Units of Vitamin A, 500% of the RDA for adults.
The carotenes possess antioxidant properties. Vitamin A supplements serve several biological functions including involvement in the synthesis of certain glycoproteins. Vitamin A supplement deficiency leads to abnormal bone development, disorders of the reproductive system, xerophthalmia (a drying condition of the cornea of the eye), and ultimately death.
Commercially available beta carotene is produced synthetically or from palm oil, algae, or fungi. Beta-carotene is converted to retinol, which is essential for vision and is subsequently converted to retinoic acid, which is used for processes involving growth and cell differentiation.
