Scitec Nutrition Beta - Carotene contains Beta-carotene which is a precursor of vitamin A and as such, necessary for its production. The compound is fat soluble (also known as lipid absorption) and it is assimilated by adipose tissue, where it protects and reinforces the body´s natural defence systems.
Plant carotenoids are the main food source of pro-vitamin A. During human digestion, enzymes within the intestine can convert a single molecule of beta-carotene into two molecules of vitamin A.
Vitamin A has a number of important functions within organisms, particularly generating pigments for correct retinal function. It also has antioxidant properties. A lack of vitamin A (also known as Vitamin A deficiency) can cause certain eye problems, and especially a lack of night vision.
