Maintain eye health and boost your immune system with Swanson's Beta Carotene supplements. These easy to swallow softgels deliver the essential nutrient Vitamin A straight into your body where it works to support vision, fight off infections, maintain the lining of the digestive tract and promote skin healing.
Vitamin A is an essential nutrient required by the body for normal growth. As well as supporting eye health, particularly night vision, it is used for bone and teeth formation, cell structure, protects the lining of the respiratory and digestive tracts and keeps the immune system working effectively.
Vitamin A is absorbed by the body in the form of retinol and there are two main dietary sources: liver, egg yolks and dairy produce which contain retinols and many fruits and vegetables which contain carotenes which the body converts to retinol. Beta-carotene is a group of red, orange, and yellow pigments called carotenoids. In fact it is these carotenoids that are responsible for the orange colour in carrots, pumpkins and sweet potatoes. Beta-carotene is also converted into retinol by the body.
Swanson Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A) only contains the recommended and safer form of Vitamin A, beta-carotene, helping you to avoid an excessive intake. The US Swanson brand of nutritional supplements is a well-supported product choice for its rigorous testing and quality assurance program. You can trust Swanson to bring you regulated supplements with guaranteed potency and purity.
Vitamin A is required to help keep the body working efficiently and effectively particularly the eyes, skin, digestive system and the immune system. Eating a diet plentiful in fruits and vegetables is a great way to help ensure your body gets all the beta-carotenoids it needs to convert into Vitamin A.
Choosing to take supplements is also a good way to ensure you are maintaining, as well as optimising your intake of this important nutrient.
