Food State Beta Carotene consists of beta carotene renatured into natural carrot concentrate. This means that it is presented to the body in the same way as it would be in food, but in a more concentrated form.
The difference between Vitamin A and Beta Carotene
Vitamin A was first recognised as an essential nutritional factor by Elmer McCollum in 1915, and later isolated from fish liver oils. There are two natural forms: vitamin A1 (Retinol) and vitamin A2. Beta carotene is a precursor of vitamin A found in plants. It is enzymatically converted to vitamin A in the body as it is required. Beta carotene is considered safer than taking vitamin A because the body only converts the amount it needs at any point in time.
Many people such as vegetarians rely almost solely on beta carotene for their vitamin A requirements.
