Natural health enthusiasts have focused for years on beta-carotene, a carotenoid found naturally in fish oil, carrots and other sources. Many members of the carotenoid family such as lutein and lycopene have been shown to have a positive influence on health.
Although individual carotenoids offer distinctive health benefits, their synergistic effects may increase their potency and range of benefits. These include powerful free-radical quenching ability. Nature's Sunshine has created a special blend of carotenoids mimicking the ratios in which they are found in body tissues.
Each capsule of Carotenoid Blend contains 80% of the E.C. RDA of vitamin A as beta-carotene (4,000 IU). Other carotenoids included are betacarotene, alpha-carotene, lutein, lycopene, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, phytoene, phytofluene and astaxanthin.
