Beta-Carotene

Once considered just a potent source of vitamin A, beta-carotene has gained prominence as a disease-fighting substance.  Today, experts think that beta-carotene – along with the related nutrients called carotenoids –may protect against heart disease and cancer.

What it is?

Beta-carotene is part of a larger group of nutrients known as carotenoids, which are the yellow-orange pigments found in fruits and vegetables (see Carotenoids).  Because the body can convert it to vitamin A, beta-carotene is sometimes called provitamin A.  However, beta-carotene provides many benefits besides supplying the body with that vitamin.

What it does?

An immune system booster and a powerful anti-oxidant, beta-carotene neutralizes the free radicals that can damage cells and promote disease.  By acting directly on cells, it combats – and may even reverse – some disorders.  It appears to be most effective when combined with other carotenoids.


  • Beta-carotene is a celebrated soldier in the war on heart disease.  Results from a survey of more than 300 doctors enrolled in the Harvard University Physicians' Health Study revealed that taking 50 mg (85000 IU) of beta-carotene a day cut the risk of heart attack, stroke and all cardiovascular deaths in half.  Other studies have shown that it can prevent LDL ('bad') cholesterol from damaging the heart and coronary vessels.  High levels of beta-carotene may also offer protection against cancer of the lung, digestive tract, bladder, breast and prostate.


  • Acting as an antioxidant, beta-carotene has reversed some precancerous conditions, particularly those affecting the skin, mucous membranes, lungs, mouth, throat, stomach, colon, prostate, cervix and uterus.  Further, it has been shown to inhibit the growth of abnormal cells, strengthen the immune system, fortify cell membranes and increase communication among cells.


    One hint of concern did arise, however, about beta-carotene's cancer-fighting benefits.  In the early 1990s, landmark studies in Finland and the US found that male smokers taking beta-carotene supplements had an increased risk of lung cancer.  Though some found the studies flawed, many experts caution smokers to maintain adequate beta-carotene levels though natural food sources, not supplements.


  • As an antioxidant, beta-carotene may be helpful for a wide range of additional ailments, including Alzheimer's disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, male infertility, fibromyalgia, psoriasis and a number of vision disorders.

    Caution!

    Consult your doctor before using beta-carotene if you have a sluggish thyroid (hypothyroidism), kidney or liver disease, or an eating disorder.

    Many experts recommend that smokers, particularly those who drink large amounts of alcohol, avoid synthetic beta-carotene supplements.

    Reminder :  If you have a medical condition, talk to you doctor before taking supplements.


  • There is no RDI for beta-carotene though about 10000 IU (6 mg) may meet the RDI for vitamin A.  Higher doses are needed, however, to provide the full antioxidant and immune boosting effects.

    If you get too little

    Signs of a beta-carotene deficiency are similar to those of inadequate vitamin A:  poor night vision, dry skin, increased risk of infection, and the formation of precancerous cells.  A deficiency may increase your risk of cancer and heart disease.  However, vitamin A deficiencies are rare.  Even if you don't eat fruits and vegetables or take supplements, you can still meet your vitamin A needs with eggs or other foods that supply it.

    If you get too much

    It's almost impossible to get too much beta-carotene, since the body discards what it doesn't process.  If you ingest high levels – over 100000 IU a day – your palms and soles may turn a harmless orange tone, which will disappear when you lower the dose.


  • Dosage

    Beta-carotene is probably most effective when combines with other carotenoids in a mixed carotenoid formula.  Naturally sourced beta-carotene is preferable to the synthetic form.  Most people benefit from 25000 IU (15 mg) of mixed carotenoids a day.  Those at high risk of cancer can take up to 50000 IU (30 mg) twice a day.

    Guidelines for use

    Take supplements with meals.  No adverse effects have been noted in pregnant or breast-feeding women taking up to 50000 IU a day.

    Other sources

    Carrots are a rich source of beta-carotene, as are other yellow, orange and red fruits and vegetables, from sweet potatoes to rock melon.  Green vegetables, such as broccoli, are also beneficial – the darker the green, the more beta-carotene the product contains.

    Shopping Hints

    Buy beta-carotene in combination with other carotenoids, such as lycopene, alpha-carotene, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin and lutein.  These combination formulas are an effective and economical way to boost your antioxidant levels.

    Latest Findings

    Beta-carotene may help to protect against many types of cancer – but in smokers it may actually increase the risk of lung cancer.  Recent studies show that this surprising effect seems strongest in men who smoke at least 20 cigarettes daily, and increases even further when alcohol intake is 'above average'.  (Interestingly, former smokers do not appear to be at heightened risk.)  One theory is that smokers generally have low vitamin C levels, and that this imbalance causes beta-carotene to heighten, rather than decrease, free-radical formation.


  • You'd have to eat about half a kilo of fresh rock melon to get the beta-carotene supplied in just one 25000 IU capsule.

    ( Lycopene 10% 5000 IU )

    How does it work ?

    Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that may help protect cells from damage. This is why there is a lot of research interest in lycopene’s role, if any, in preventing cancer.

    Skin and Hair 

    The health benefits of fish oil can be incredible for the body’s largest organ, the skin. This source of essential fats improves the health and beauty of human skin in several ways. Fish oil benefits and nourishes the skin with fats and contributes fat-soluble vitamins that help skin maintain a smooth, elastic texture. There is also evidence that fish oil prevents wrinkles and works against the aging process.

    The deficiency of EPA and DHA in diet contributes to skin conditions, such as dandruff, thinning hair, eczema and psoriasis, as well as age spots and sun spots. Without the essential fatty acids, too much moisture leaves the skin. The truth is your internal health can appear on your skin, and taking fish oil internally as a supplement may be as good as or better than applying conventional moisturizers.


    In one study, individuals taking fish oil equivalent to 1.8 grams of EPA had a significant reduction in symptoms of eczema after 12 weeks. Researchers believe that these effects may be due to fish oil’s ability to reduce leukotriene B4, an inflammatory substance that plays a role in eczema.

    According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, fish oil can aid in preventing or slowing heart disease, which is especially great for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis sufferers who are at a higher risk of developing heart disease. When it comes to using fish oil supplements for the alleviation of psoriasis symptoms, studies have been mixed with some showing improvement but others showing no effect. If you suffer from psoriasis, you may want to try a fish oil supplement, or else I highly recommend that you make sure to have fish rich in omega-3s regularly.


    One of the biggest reasons fish oil leads to healthier skin is definitely the fact that it can reduce inflammation. Research has shown that fish oil supplements can even reduce sun-induced inflammation and provide sunburn relief. “The sunburn response is markedly reduced by dietary fish oil rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.”

    Omega-3s

    There are 3 chains of fatty acid chains called ALA, EPA and DHA.  Typically, ALA comes from plant sources like hemp, flax and chia seeds.  EPA and DHA are found in high concentration in animal sources like cold-water fish and krill oils.

    Lycopene

    Not only does lycopene protect against heart attacks, but it is also associated with reduced risk of cancer.  Additionally, this phytonutrient has antioxidant benefits for the skin.

    Alpha-Carotene/Beta-Carotene/Beta-Cryptoxanthin

    These phytonutrients are part of a group of compounds called “carotenoids”.  Some carotenoids convert into vitamin A for use in the skin.  Some carotenoids do not convert into vitamin A and, instead, they exert potent antioxidant protective benefits. 

    Vitamin A

    Extremely important for eye health, vitamin A is also used in the body to support normal skin cell turn over and to repair skin tissue.  Vitamin A derivatives, like retinol, are frequently used in topical skin care products to smooth and clarify skin. 

    Vitamin E

    Vitamin E actually refers to a family of eight compounds.  Some of the compounds are more potent in terms of increasing the skin’s ability to stand up to the sun’s UV rays.  Other members of the family have more antioxidant, cholesterol lowering, and anti-cancer effects.

    B-Complex

    Also known as the “stress fighting” family of vitamins, the B-Complex supports healthy nerves, skin, eyes, hair, liver and mouth.  Two of the B-vitamins, biotin and pantothenic acid, are essential for smooth skin and lustrous, shiny hair. 

    Zinc

    This mineral acts as an antioxidant and is essential for collagen formation.  Zinc promotes efficient healing of skin infections, is important for tissue strength & repair and helps normalize sebum production for oily skin types.

    Zinc sulfate is a zinc salt that has many uses as a medication or nutritional supplement. Zinc sulfate is often prescribed for individuals deficient in the mineral zinc. Zinc sulfate is also used to treat acne, due to its anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties. As of 2010, zinc sulfate is being studied as an alternate treatment for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), particularly for patients who cannot tolerate more standard ADHD medications. As with any medication or supplement, always consult your doctor before taking zinc sulfate.

    Use of Zinc Sulfate for Zinc Deficiency

    Zinc is stored in your bones and in your muscles; without enough, your immune system is weakened, leaving you more susceptible to infections and illnesses. Zinc also helps to keep the layers of your skin strong. When you are zinc deficient, you are more prone to open skin infections and your body has difficulty healing wounds. Zinc sulfate can remedy this deficiency.

    Use of Zinc Sulfate in Treating Acne

    Studies have shown that zinc sulfate, taken orally, decreases acne. Acne is an inflammatory process. According to Mayo Clinic dermatologist Lawrence Gibson, "the mineral zinc plays a role in wound healing and reduces inflammation, which could help improve acne."

    Folic Acid : Folic acid is also known as vitamin B9 or folate. Folic acid is important for tissue growth, cells development, and healthy brain development. It is a vital element for cell division, which is necessary for producing the genetic material, the DNA. Hence, the level or status of folic acid in the body plays an important role in the division of cells and tissues.

    Acne : Folic acid, with other important antioxidants, helps in eliminating toxins from the body, which can reduce acne on the face. But, we should also note that the overdose of folic acid can lead to more acne, patchy and dry skin.

    Hair Growth : Folic acid plays an important role in hair growth. It renews the cells that aid the growth of hair. Folic acid deficiency can lead to premature graying and hair loss.

    Firm Skin : Folic acid helps improve the firmness of the human skin. It also helps reduce the signs of skin aging.


  • Biotin, or Vitamin B7, is a water-soluble vitamin that’s a part of the vitamin B complex — a group of key nutrients needed for healthy metabolic, nerve, digestive and cardiovascular functions.

    Biotin acts as a coenzyme in the body that’s needed for the metabolism of fatty acids, amino acids and glucose. This means that when we eat foods that are sources of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, vitamin B7 biotin must be present in order to convert and use these macronutrients for bodily energy, to carry out physical activities and for proper psychological functioning.


    Biotin is also a nutrient that helps us keep a young, attractive appearance since it plays a major part in maintaining the health of our hair, nails and skin. In fact, biotin sometimes gets the nickname the “H” vitamin, which stems from the German words Haar and Haut that mean “hair and skin.” Vitamin B7 biotin is commonly added to hair and skin beauty products, although it’s believed to not be absorbed very well through the skin and actually must be ingested to be fully beneficial.


    Biotin can be found in foods like organ meats, eggs, avocado, cauliflower, berries, fish, legumes and mushrooms.

     Daily Recommended Values of Biotin (Vitamin B7)

    According to the National Academy of Science’s Institute of Medicine, the daily recommended value of biotin is:

    5 micrograms daily for infants

    6–8 micrograms daily for infants ages 7 months–3 years

    12–20 micrograms daily for children ages 4–13

    25 micrograms for adolescents

    30 micrograms for male and female adults over 19

    30 milligrams for pregnant women and 35 milligrams for women who are breastfeeding

    Maintains Healthy Hair, Skin, and Nails

    Vitamin B7 is needed to maintain healthy skin, hair and nails — so when someone experiences a vitamin B7 deficiency, symptoms may manifest in the form of thinning, splitting and brittle hair, or dermatitis that results in dry, irritated skin. You may notice that biotin is included in many cosmetic face creams, hair masques and other over-the-counter beauty products for this reason, but vitamin B7 biotin is much more effective when it’s eaten rather than applied topically.


    According to studies, taking high doses of biotin can help treat weak hair and nails. In fact, this benefit of vitamin B7 biotic was first discovered when horses were effectively treated with biotin to correct problems with the horses’ hoofs becoming brittle and cracked.


    Vitamin B7 biotin can also help to protect skin from acne, fungal infections, rashes and severe dryness and cracking.


  • Magnesium Sulfate is a natural compound used in beauty products because of its numerous benefits. According to Wikipedia, Magnesium Sulfate's popularity as a bath salt or soak is partially cosmetic: the increase in ionic strength prevents some of the temporary skin wrinkling, which is caused by prolonged immersion of extremities in pure water. This does not seem to indicate, however, that the same effect would last for longer periods of time when applied topically in a beauty product. However, Magnesium Sulfate can also be absorbed into the skin and serve as an anti-inflammatory, sometimes fighting acne and blemishes. This ionic strength and anti-inflammatory property makes Magnesium Sulfate a popular ingredient in beauty products.
