With Betaplex you can achieve therapeutic levels of Vitamin A safely in pure, safe and easy liquid carotenoid formula that contains mixed carotenes.
Carotenoids and Vitamin A
Carotenoids and Vitamin A are necessary for proper immune function, eye and skin health. Carotenoids are not toxic (as Vitamin A can be when taken at higher levels than the body needs). Your body controls the conversion of carotenes to Vitamin A and does not allow the generation of toxic levels of Vitamin A. Therefore, carotenoids are a safer, healthier way to achieve healthy Vitamin A levels in the body.
Carotenoids are a group of phytochemicals that are responsible for different colors of foods (oranges, reds, yellows). They are recognized as playing an important role in maintaining good health and in the prevention of many human diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer by way of their strong antioxidant activity. In addition to being potent antioxidants some carotenoids also contribute to dietary Vitamin A. There is clear scientific evidence in support of their beneficial role as anitoxidant phytochemicals in the prevention of several chronic diseases.
Free Radicals and Antioxidants
Free radicals cause oxidative damage of cellular DNA, protein and lipids, resulting in the initiation or development of numerous diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes mellitus, cataract, rheumatoid arthritis, or different neurodegenerative diseases. Carotenoids are recognized as playing an important role in the prevention of human diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer by way of their strong antioxidant activity.
Chemoprotective Effects of Carotenoids
Studies demonstrate chemoprotective effects of carotenoids against colon and rectal cancers by modulating the proliferative activity of procarcinogenic proteins in the gut tissues. Carotenoids have also been shown to have chemoprotective effects against skin cancers and cancers arising from epithelial tissues lining the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, and various organs. Research also demonstrates carotenoids to have cardioprotective effects and to play an important role in life extension in mammalian species.
One of the ways the doctors at University Health Clinic like to use Beta-PLEX is as an antiviral and supportive treatment in viral bronchitis. They also use it with patients at risk for sun damaged skin and skin cancer due to excessive sun exposure. It is especially important with patients who have systemic lupus for protecting them from the solar reactions and dermatitis common in lupus patients.
