Lamberts Natural Beta Carotene 15mg with Mixed Carotenoids Information

Our bodies are being continually exposed to ‘free radical’ damage as a result of the environment in which we live. Air pollution and cigarette smoking are the major factors that generate ‘free radicals’, but one of the most important is the effect that sunlight has on our skin.

The body has its own natural defence mechanism to fight these ‘free radicals’, substances called antioxidants which neutralise ‘free radicals’ thus helping to protect our cells from damage. Beta carotene is one of the best known antioxidants which helps to protect the skin against the damaging effects of ‘free radicals’ created by the action of ultra-violet rays on the skin.

This product provides a guaranteed level of 15mg of natural beta carotene per capsule plus mixed carotenoids. These important carotenoids are found in many fruits and vegetables and have been of great interest to nutrition scientists. The body is able to convert beta carotene into Vitamin A according to its needs, and remaining beta carotene is stored in the skin where it can be seen as a light gold colour and is known to give some protection against sun damage.

  • High strength beta carotene 15mg, with mixed carotenoids.
  • Made in the UK to pharmaceutical GMP standards.

Vitamin A is highly important for human health.

They’re essential for maintaining healthy vision, ensuring the normal function of your immune system and organs and aiding the proper growth and development of babies in the womb.

It’s recommended that men get 900 mcg, women 700 mcg and children and adolescents 300–600 mcg of vitamin A per day.

Health benefits of vitamin A.

Protects Your Eyes From Night Blindness and Age-Related Decline

Vitamin A is essential for preserving your eyesight and is needed to convert light that hits your eye into a signal that can be sent to your brain. In fact, one of the first symptoms of vitamin A deficiency can be night blindness, known as nyctalopia. Night blindness occurs in people with vitamin A deficiency.

People with this condition can still see normally during the day, but have reduced vision in darkness as their eyes struggle to pick up light at lower levels.

In addition to preventing night blindness, eating adequate amounts of beta-carotene may help slow the decline in eyesight that some people experience as get older. 

Vitamin A may Lower Your Risk of Certain Cancers

Cancer occurs when abnormal cells begin to grow or divide in an uncontrolled way. As vitamin A plays an important role in the growth and development of your cells, it may have an influence on cancer risk. In some studies, eating higher amounts of vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene has been linked to a decreased risk of certain types of cancer, including Hodgkin's lymphoma, as well as cervical, lung and bladder cancer.

Yet, though high intakes of vitamin A from plant foods have been associated with a reduced risk of cancer, animal foods which contain active forms of vitamin A aren’t linked in the same way. Similarly, vitamin A supplements haven’t shown the same beneficial effects.

At the moment, the relationship between vitamin A levels in your body and cancer risk is still not fully understood.

Vitamin A supports a Healthy Immune System

Vitamin A plays a vital role in maintaining your body’s natural defences. This includes the mucous barriers in your eyes, lungs, gut and genitals which help trap bacteria and other infectious agents.

It’s also involved in the production and function of white blood cells, which help capture and clear bacteria and other pathogens from your bloodstream.

This means that a deficiency in vitamin A can increase your susceptibility to infections and delay your recovery when you get sick.

Vitamin A reduces Your Risk of Acne

Acne is a chronic, inflammatory skin disorder. People with acne develop painful spots and blackheads, most commonly on the face, back and chest. These spots occur when the sebaceous glands get clogged up with dead skin and oils. These glands are found in the hair follicles on your skin and produce sebum, an oily, waxy substance that keeps your skin lubricated and waterproof.

Though the spots are physically harmless, acne may have a serious effect on people's mental health and lead to low self-esteem, anxiety and depression.
The exact role that vitamin A plays in the development and treatment of acne remains unclear.

It has been suggested that vitamin A deficiency may increase your risk of developing acne, as it causes an overproduction of the protein keratin in your hair follicles.

Vitamin A supports Bone Health

The key nutrients needed for maintaining healthy bones as you age are protein, calcium and vitamin D. However, eating enough vitamin A is also necessary for proper bone growth and development, and a deficiency in this vitamin has been linked to poor bone health.

In fact, people with lower blood levels of vitamin A are at a higher risk of bone fractures than people with healthy levels. A recent analysis found that people with the highest amounts of total vitamin A in their diet had a 6% decreased risk of fractures.

Vitamin A promotes Healthy Growth and Reproduction

Vitamin A is essential for maintaining a healthy reproductive system in both men and women, as well as ensuring the normal growth and development of embryos during pregnancy. Rat studies examining the importance of vitamin A in male reproduction have shown that a deficiency blocks the development of sperm cells, causing infertility. Animal studies have also suggested that vitamin A deficiency in females can impact reproduction by reducing egg quality and affecting egg implantation in the womb.

In pregnant women, vitamin A is also involved in the growth and development of many major organs and structures of the unborn child, including the skeleton, nervous system, heart, kidneys, eyes, lungs and pancreas.

Yet, though much less common than vitamin A deficiency, too much vitamin A during pregnancy can be harmful to the growing baby as well and may lead to birth defects.

Therefore, many health authorities recommended that women avoid foods that contain concentrated amounts of vitamin A, such as pâté and liver, as well as supplements containing vitamin A during pregnancy.

Vitamin A is vital for many important processes in your body.

It’s used to maintain healthy vision, ensure the normal functioning of your organs and immune system, as well as establishing normal growth and development of babies in the womb.

Both too little and too much vitamin A could have negative effects on your health.

The ultimate healthcare supplement range

Quality comes from paying attention to detail

Lamberts believe that every single raw ingredient in a Lamberts product is as important as the finished product itself. So they are meticulous in the tests they carry out and ensure that every product that is manufactured is subjected to a series of rigorous tests to ensure they meet the specifications given on the label.

Firstly, the raw materials are tested for quality, purity and potency, then samples of products are taken and tested even while the product is still being made and then a final check is carried out on the finished product.

This commitment has enabled them to produce products of a quality that others can only aspire to and are much appreciated by health professionals, who appreciate the detail they pay to recommended amounts and the sources of vitamins they use in formulation.

The supplements are much valued for the immune system and strong bones. Their product such as folic acid, Vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and other essential nutrients are highly recommended as part of a healthy diet.

Dosage of Lamberts Healthcare Supplements

Premium quality healthcare supplements need to provide the correct potency since dosage is the key to success when using nutrition and herbs in clinical practice. You can have selected the right nutrients but get the levels wrong and you won’t get the results you hoped.

And whilst you’d be right in thinking that getting the dosage right is a fundamental requirement in practice, it is surprisingly difficult to achieve this by using many of the supplements on the market. This is why we pay such careful attention to our selection of brands.

At Lamberts they start with dosage. Lamberts philosophy of healthcare is all about ‘sound’ science - they only develop products that are at the right potency and supported by a valid scientific rationale. Indeed it is the potency of their products that truly sets them apart from most other brands and enables you to be able to put your trust in Lamberts products.

Informative and accurate supplement labels

Great products need to be perfectly labeled and Lamberts has pioneered the accurate labeling of dietary healthcare supplements.

Lamberts takes considerable care to use the correct terms for all the ingredients in their products and they do not hesitate to declare everything that is used. What they say on the label is an honest representation of what is in the product.

To be sure that their tablets or capsules contain the active ingredients specified, they know that certain inactive ingredients need to be used. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to produce food supplements without using some inactive ingredients, and products whose labels do not show any are in our opinion either inaccurately made or inaccurately labeled.
