Carotenoids Benefits

Sufficient intake of carotenoids is important, because by working as antioxidants they help the body to protect cells, tissues and organs against the damaging effects of free radicals, which may contribute to the development of disorders such as cancer, heart disease and eye diseases.

Some carotenoids can be converted to vitamin A: beta-carotene is the main dietary source of vitamin A and is essential for normal growth and development, healthy immune systems and vision.
