Carotenes are specifically found in vegetables and fruits, with beta-carotene found in those which are dark orange or green. Some are precursors to Vitamin A and beta-carotene has antioxidant qualities, helping to minimise the damage caused by free radicals.
Free radicals are produced by the body when you breathe, digest food, exercise or even sleep. They are naturally occurring as they are created by emotional stress, ultraviolet light, radiation and air pollution. Free radicals damage the body by causing deterioration of the cells, lowering the defences against diseases and putting the body into a 'stress' state.
To counter the effect of free radicals, a balance of antioxidants is required. The most important antioxidants include Beta-Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc, Selenium and components found in certain plants including Turmeric and Gingko Biloba.
One softgel a day could help your cells fight the damage caused by free radicals due to exposure to ultraviolet light and the deterioration of cells.
