CAROTENS with Vitamins C and E



Carotenes, vitamin C & E

Beta-carotene is the most important compound in the group of carotenoids. It is also called provitamin A because it is one of its precursors in the body. It is a natural pigment found in many fruits and vegetables, particularly carrots.



Tanning is the skin’s way of protecting itself against ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. This occurs in the following way: in the dermis, the middle layer of the skin, there are cells, called melanocytes, which secrete a substance that pigments the skin, melanin. When the sun’s UV rays reach the skin, melanin rises to the upper layer (epidermis), where it is deposited, thickening it and absorbing the sun’s rays that are harmful to the skin. When melanin comes into contact with UV radiation, it oxidizes, causing the skin to turn a darker tone, which in combination with the pigmentation provided by beta-carotene produces a tan with fewer exposures, long-lasting and natural.

Vitamins C and E in complement with beta-carotene, act by destroying oxygen free radicals, which result from the oxidative activity of UV radiation, thus becoming an effective resource against skin aging and degeneration caused by radiation. UV A and UV B. They exert a strong protective effect, prevent erythema (redness of the skin) and reduce the risk of burns in people sensitive to sun exposure.

The suggested dose of this dietary supplement exceeds the RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) of vitamin C and E. This product can cause toxic effects due to the accumulation of fat-soluble vitamin E, do not consume it again without consulting your docto



Do not use in people with hypersensitivity to the active principles. Smokers should avoid using any beta-carotene supplement. Its intake is not recommended on an empty stomach because the presence of vitamin C can cause heartburn. Doses higher than the recommended dose can cause yellow pigmentation of the skin that disappears when the intake is stopped. Do not use in case of pregnancy, lactation or in children.
