Term: beta carotene
Anti-cancer protection – orange natural food colorant
Spirulina is the richest beta carotene food, with a full spectrum of ten mixed carotenoids.
About half are orange carotenes: alpha, beta and gamma and half are yellow xanthophylls.
They worktogether in our body to enhance antioxidant protection.
Many years of research proves eating beta carotene rich fruits and vegetables gives us real anti-cancer protection.
Synthetic beta carotene has not always shown these benefits.
Research in Israel showed natural beta carotene from algae was far more effective. Natural beta carotene is better assimilated and contains the key 9-cis isomer, lacking in synthetic. As suspected, natural carotenoids in algae and vegetables have the most antioxidant and anti-cancer power.« Back to Glossary Index
