Beta-carotene: for beautiful skin and healthy eyes

Beta-carotene is the best-known carotenoid of the over 400 carotenoids in the plant world and the most occurring carotenoid. Carotenoids belong to the secondary plant substances, which give vegetables and fruits their colour. The main sources are yellow and green leafy vegetables, yellow fruit, carrots, spinach, pumpkin, broccoli, grapefruits, mangoes, peaches and tomatoes, but it can be found in many other vegetables and fruits as well.

Beta-carotene is the precursor of vitamin A and is therefore called provitamin A.

When vitamin A is needed, the body is able to transform beta-carotene into vitamin A (retinol), which is interesting for population groups that take in very little vitamin A through foods. Vegetables and fruits rich in beta-carotene are able to meet the daily vitamin A requirement.

Beta carotene conversion

Until now, it was presumed that 6 micrograms of beta-carotene were transformed into 1 microgram of vitamin A, but now it is believed that the body needs twice as much beta-carotene to produce 1 microgram of vitamin A, namely 12 micrograms of beta-carotene.
Beta-carotene, which isn´t used immediately, is partly stored by the body for a later transformation. 80-85% are stored in the subcutaneous fat and 8-12% in the liver.
How much beta-carotene is transformed into vitamin A depends on how much is already available in the body, which prevents an excessive accumulation. Excess beta-carotene is simply excreted by the body.

Beta-carotene is one of approx. 50 carotenoids with provitamin A activity, of which it is the most active.

Benefits of beta-carotene for the hair

Vitamin A, which is formed from beta-carotene in the body, is needed for the cell growth of all cells including the hair cells. A vitamin A deficiency can cause dry, dull and lifeless hair and a dry scalp. Vitamin A is also able to promote the hair re-growth.
