Five benefits of beta-carotene for your health

Beta-carotene is a carotenoid (a red-orange-yellow pigment) that gives certain vegetables their significant colour. You can find it in carrots, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and more. The more intense the fruit or vegetable’s colour, the richer it is in beta-carotene.

Besides being a powerful antioxidant, beta-carotene converts into vitamin A in your body and has many health benefits. It’s essential for your overall well-being because it takes care of your vision, skin, immune system, and brain.

Health benefits of beta carotene

Here are 5 benefits of beta carotene that make it essential in your diet:

1. Eye health

Both beta-carotene and vitamin A are beneficial for our eyesight. A deficiency in vitamin A can lead to dry eyes, and a deficiency in beta carotene is linked to poor peripheral and night vision.

Lights, screens, reading up close, and UV exposure can worsen your eyesight over the years. A carotenoid-rich diet supports eye health and may even prevent eye diseases. To naturally improve your eyesight, increase your beta-carotene intake.

2. Skin health

Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant which is essential for skin health. They protect the skin cells from ageing and sun damage while improving skin texture and appearance. By reducing inflammation, antioxidants also help the skin repair itself from within.

Exposing yourself to the sun and its damaging UV light can cause hyperpigmentation and sunburn and pose a risk of skin cancer. Beta-carotene has natural tanning properties that enhance your pigmentation without risking damage from the sun.

By consuming beta-carotene, you can achieve a bronze tan, ensure UV protection of the skin (SPF is still mandatory), and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.

3. Brain health

Cognitive ability can be improved when consuming carotenoid-rich foods in the long term.

Multiple studies have proved the health benefits of high beta-carotene levels in the blood, such as improved memory performance and a lower possibility of poor cognitive function in older age.

Supplementing with beta-carotene can also circumvent cognitive impairment. It could improve verbal and cognitive memory in adults.

A combination of beta carotene with other nutrients has been observed to have the best impact on cognitive function. Those nutrients must have high antioxidant properties, such as zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin E.

4. Immune system

The immune system acts as a safety guard in your body. A complex network of cells, organs, and proteins safeguards the body against infections. This network remembers every microbe (germ) that has entered the body and has been defeated. This enables the immune system to recognise and eliminate the microbe as fast as possible if it ever enters the body again.

As a powerful antioxidant, beta-carotene can reduce inflammation and boost the immune response by increasing disease-fighting cells in the body.

5. Reduced risk of chronic diseases

Consuming beta-carotene-rich foods daily may reduce the risk of chronic diseases, like cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Antioxidants help reduce oxidative stress in the body, lower inflammation, and neutralise harmful free radicals.

Research suggests that carotenoids’ antioxidant properties may help reduce the risk of developing breast, lung, and pancreatic cancer.

It was also found that when consumed regularly, beta-carotene can help prevent cardiovascular diseases and possibly strengthen protection for current smokers.
