Carotene powder is a red-orange pigment found in plants and fruits, especially carrots and colorful vegetables.

The name beta carotene comes from the Greek “beta” and Latin “carota” (carrot). It is the yellow/orange pigment that gives vegetables and fruits their rich colors. H. Wachenroder crystallized beta carotene from carrot roots in 1831, and came up with the name “carotene”.

beta carotene powder benefits

Carotene Powder Benefits:

1.Vision Benefits

Carotene powder can help reduce the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration. According to the National Institutes of Health, taking carotenoid supplements containing carotenoids with antioxidant properties, such as beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, might be helpful to treat and prevent age-related macular degeneration.

Lutein and zeaxanthin supplements are sometimes prescribed to reduce the risk of developing eye diseases and to improve eye function.

2.Cardiovascular Benefits

Some studies have shown that carotene powder can help reduce your risk of developing atherosclerosis (the buildup of plaque in your artery walls that eventually narrows your blood vessels). Hypertension, glucose intolerance, and abdominal obesity are all risk factors for atherosclerosis, and studies have shown that carotenoids help to improve these risk factors.

Carotene powder may also help improve early atherosclerosis that hasn’t yet progressed to full-on cardiovascular disease. However, it seems that these cardiovascular benefits can only be reaped when carotenoids have been consumed over a long period of time (nine to 20 years, as suggested by one study).

3.Skin Aging Protection

Most skin aging is caused by UV radiation (sunlight). Studies have shown that carotenoids, when consumed, are stored up in your skin and serve as a line of defense against skin damage from UV radiation. It’s suggested that lycopene and beta-carotene, specifically, provide this skin protection.

Lycopene and beta-carotene supplements are also effective at preventing skin redness caused by UV radiation. This effect is even more pronounced when a lycopene or beta-carotene supplement is combined with vitamin E.

4.Skin Cancer Protection

Many studies have shown that beta-carotene powder help protect against the development of skin cancer and pre-skin cancers. One way they do this is by promoting cell differentiation and inhibiting cell cycle progression. They also protect against skin cancer by modulating apoptosis (cell death). Carotenoids are able to induce cell death in melanoma cells.

5.Potential Health Benefits

In addition to the known health benefits of carotenoids, there are additional potential benefits some studies suggest.

6.Bone health: A study suggests that carotenoids, particularly lycopene, have a positive effect on bone health. Another study suggests that taking beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin can help lower the risk of developing osteopenia (a condition in which your bones are weaker than normal).

7.Slowing rate of mental decline: A medical article published in the Journal of American Medical Association showed that long-term beta-carotene supplementation may provide cognitive benefits.

8.Boosting immunity: It is widely thought that beta-carotene powder boost immunity, especially the provitamin A carotenoids, because vitamin A is in itself necessary for good immune system function.

9.Breast cancer and prostate cancer risk reduction: While still under investigation, many studies have suggested that carotenoids, especially lycopene, have anti-cancer effects on sex-hormone-dependent cancers like breast cancer and prostate cancer.
