Super Beta-Carotene:(Vitamins A and D) Many leading medical authorities are recommending a diet, which includes yellow and green vegetables rich in carotenoid antioxidants. Of the carotenoids found in vegetables, beta-carotene is one of the most biologically active. Beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A only when this important vitamin is need by the body. It does not accumulate in the liver, making it a safe effective source of vitamin A. Carlson Super beta-carotene is extracted from tiny D. Salina algae plants which are grown for their high beta-carotene content in the fresh ocean waters off southern Australia. These plants biologically produce 10,000 times more beta-carotene than carrot cells. Each soft gel contains 16mg of D. Salina Beta-carotene, providing 25,000IU of Vitamin A Activity. Also present are significant amounts of other food carotenoids, alpha-carotene, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and lutien.
