As Beta Carotene is a precursor of vitamin A found in plants it is enzymatically converted to vitamin A in the body as it is required
Beta Carotene is considered safer than taking Vitamin A because the body only converts the amount it needs at any point in time
Hence at Cytoplan we do not have Vitamin A in any of our products – only Beta Carotene, the safe precursor
Beta Carotene that is not required to be converted into Vitamin A circulates in the blood, acting as a powerful anti-oxidant and free radical scavenger.
Food State Beta Carotene is presented to the body in a form that is as close to nature as possible by using natural carrot concentrate
Food State Beta Carotene is suitable for Men, Women, Children and the Elderly

Food State Benefits

At Cytoplan we uniquely sell our vitamin and mineral products in a ‘Food State’ as such these are supplements that present vitamins and minerals in a format as close as possible to the foods where those micronutrients naturally occur. This means they work in the body like food, which means the body knows how to use them to nourish whichever part of the body is in need.

Choosing Cytoplan

Cytoplan was founded in 1990, by practitioners with many years experience in nutrition science. We work closely with Doctors and scientists to produce products which are highly bio-effective, truly innovative and backed by research and studies.

The difference between Vitamin A and Beta Carotene

Vitamin A was first recognised as an essential nutritional factor by Elmer McCollum in 1915 and later isolated from fish liver oils. There are two natural forms: Vitamin A1 (Retinol) and Vitamin A2. Beta carotene is a precursor of vitamin A, found in plants. It is enzymatically converted to vitamin A in the body as it is required.

Beta carotene is considered safer than taking vitamin A because the body only converts the amount it needs at any point in time. Many people such as vegetarians rely almost solely on beta carotene for their vitamin A requirements.

How it works in our bodies

Beta carotene that is not required to be converted into vitamin A circulates in the blood, acting as a powerful anti-oxidant and free radical scavenger. Beta carotene and other carotenoids contribute to the health-keeping benefits of a diet high in fruit and vegetables.

Vitamin A is easily used up by the acids and oxidants in smog and cigarette smoke, so it is vital to get optimum amounts daily. Beta carotene has an important antioxidant function: it scavenges free radicals. One significant characteristic of the fat-soluble vitamins is that they can be stored in the body in large amounts, so that the effects of their deficiency in the diet may not manifest for many months.
