Deficiency of carrot beta carotene and vitamin C acts as a risk factor for rheumatoid arthritis. Thus, consumption of adequate levels of beta carotene is necessary to prevent the occurrence of this condition.
8. Strengthens Immune System:
Beta carotene strengthens your immune system by activating the thymus gland which is one of the most important sources of immune protection. The thymus gland enables your immune system to fight off infections and viruses, thus destroying cancerous cells before they can spread.
9. Imparts a Healthy Glow:
Beta carotene prevents premature skin ageing by acting as an antioxidant, a substance that reduces oxygen damage caused by UV light, pollutions and other environmental hazards like smoking. Consumption of adequate levels of beta carotene imparts a natural glow to your skin, thus making it more attractive and beautiful.

High doses of carrot beta carotene make your skin less sensitive to the sun. Thus, it is particularly beneficial for people with erythropoietic protoporphyria, a rare genetic condition causing painful sun sensitivity as well as liver problems. Moreover, it can boost the effectiveness of sunscreen. Consumption of about 90 to 180 mg of beta carotene can reduce sunburn and provide an SPF of 4. Therefore, foods containing beta carotene or supplements can be coupled with sunscreen to enhance its effectiveness.

Consumption of beta carotene reduces the symptoms and risk of developing this condition. However, it is advisable to consult your physician before taking beta carotene supplements for treatment of leukoplakia.

However, research is still going on in this regard and so you should consult your physician before using these supplements.
