AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Beta Carotene (Vitamin A) softgels.
Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A), an antioxidant, helps reduce oxidative stress and inflammation as well, thus preventing eye-related disorders, promoting brain health and fighting depression. An antioxidant is a substance that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules; they protect your body from unwanted substances. Antioxidants such as Vitamin A have shown to improve one’s immune system, protect against harmful substances and bacteria, and lower the risk of developing heart disease.
Vitamin A is found in two primary forms: active vitamin A and beta-carotene. Active vitamin A is called retinol, and it comes from animal-derived foods. This pre-form of vitamin A can be used directly by the body without the need to convert the vitamin. Beta-carotene is a bit different. It needs to be converted to retinol by the body after being ingested. Beta-Carotene is typically found in plants; it needs to be converted to the active form before the body can utilize it.
Vitamin A has been found to be one of the most crucial during pregnancy and breastfeeding. It plays this crucial role by creating a healthy development of the newborn. It is also extremely important to help infants and toddlers to build a strong immune system. Vitamin A protects the skin and helps prevent the formation of UV-induced erythema, or skin irritation and redness.
Antioxidants such as Vitamin A may help delay the progression of age-related macular degeneration. Finally, vitamin A improves respiratory health; it helps reduce respiratory symptoms, such as phlegm production, shortness of breath and wheezing. It is naturally found in foods such as beef liver, spinach, carrots, and cantaloupe. Vitamin A deficiency can be identified in particular the elderly and critically ill. Symptoms of Vitamin A deficiency include night blindness, poor growth, and unhealthy skin and hair. Vitamin A deficiencies have a correlation with Anemia, which is from low iron levels.
