carrotsBeta Carotene is a precursor to vitamin A, that is, your body converts carotene into vitamin A.  Many multivitamin mixes include Beta Carotene as well as vitamin A but not all people can utilize this nutrient.  Diabetics, those with a low thyroid, those with severe liver problems, and blood Type A cannot convert beta carotene to vitamin A.  Beta carotene nourishes the soft tissues such as gums, eyes, and lungs.  It is a powerful antioxidant.  Food sources are carrots (where it was first isolated-thus the name carotene), yellow, red and dark green fruits and vegetables.
