Beta Carotene is a member of the carotenoid family of plant pigments, which are responsible for the yellow, orange and red colours of certain fruits and vegetables. Beta Carotene supplements is also known as pro-vitamin A, as it is converted by the body into vitamin A. Vitamin A only occurs in animal tissues (particularly liver, fish liver and dairy products), whereas Beta-Carotene occurs in plant tissues (particularly carrots).

I chose this product because it has a combination with vitamine E and because 1 capsule contains 6mg beta-carotene. A lot more than most other products on the market. 1 capsule a day is more than enough. This products is also a good preparation for sunbathing and protects against free radicals.

You won't get a tan from taking these but they do protect against the sun and UV rays. Especially during the summer I highly value these.

I'll have to wait a little longer because I've just started taking these, but what I noticed immediately is that a lovely tan appeared on my skin after just 2 days of sunlight.
