Carrots - Beta-carotene

Carrots*

Beta-carotene is found in plants like peppers and carrots. Beta-carotene is changed into vitamin A, and we need vitamin A for good vision and eye health, for a strong immune system, and for healthy skin and mucous membranes.

Antioxidants


Beta-Carotene exhibits good radical-trapping antioxidant behavior at lower oxygen levels. Antioxidants have been studied for their ability to prevent chronic disease. Mixtures of carotenoids or combinations with other antioxidants (e.g. vitamin E) can increase their activity against free radicals. 1

Another study showed that 44 percent of people with colon cancer who were given 30 mg daily supplements had cancer inhibition after just two weeks. And researchers in Arizona showed supplementation, also using 30 mgs per day for pre-cancerous mouth lesions (Ieukoplakia), caused total or partial regression in 71 percent of tumors. After clinical trials on prostate, cervical, colon, melanoma and breast cancers, the US Prostate Cancer Research Institute concluded there was "sufficient reason to supplement with beta-carotene." 2

Three Elements Inc.'s Proprietary Extraction Methods


Carrots have been separated from other carotenoids because the health benefits of other leafy greens have shown real promise to the health world more than ever before. We can deliver Vitamin A, and the other nutrients found in carrots at a higher purity, and a higher nutrient level.

That is why the private label extracts provided by Three Elements Inc., are a true innovation in the field. With our proprietary method of extraction, we solve the problem of the time constraints with nutritional extracts. The result is product specific shelf life , and a higher level of purity and nutrient strength than what is on the market.

These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.  Carrots are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.  Carrots are a food, not a drug or dietary supplement.
