Lamberts Beta Carotene
Beta carotene is one of the most important pigments and is found throughout the plant world. It is a precursor to vitamin A.
Beta carotene is one of the main antioxidant nutrients in our diet that help our bodies to destroy harmful free radicals which can otherwise harm tissues and organs.
Beta-carotene gives yellow and orange fruit and vegetables their colour. It's turned into vitamin A in the body, so it can perform the same jobs in the body as vitamin A.
Good sources of beta-carotene
- yellow and green (leafy) vegetables – such as spinach, carrots and red peppers
- yellow fruit – such as mango, papaya and apricots
