to make the sun your friend

During the summer months, exposure to sun is considerably increased. For this reason, skin protection against the harmful effect of sun is necessary.

Along with the skin protection products, during this time it is important to use larger amounts of beta carotene, which may cause the body to produce melanin (skin pigment) and neutralize the harmful effect of the increasingly harmful sun beams.

To put it simply, the use of UV-protection creams is a must, while beta carotene enhances the protection and prepares the skin for tanning.

Present in the dermis cells, it protects the skin cells against the harmful UV rays effect, enabling regular tanning during sunbathing, with no sunburns or allergic reactions.

Beta carotene is the proverbial natural antioxidant, present in numerous foods with yellow, orange, red and green colour (carrots, spinach, apricots, mango, tomatoes, peppers) The regular intake of beta carotene allows the body, when needed, in the liver, to transform it into vitamin A, the essential vitamin performing a number of functions in the human body, such as good vision, particularly at night, optimum growth and development and others.

Therefore beta carotene is also known as pro-vitamin A.

As an antioxidant, it protects the body against the harmful effect of the so-called ‘free radicals’, enemies to every living cell.

Additional intake of beta carotene as dietary supplement cannot cause vitamin A overdose because the body produces only the needed amount of vitamin A out of the beta carotene present in it.

The maximum daily intake, according to experts, is 6 mg beta carotene. One ALKAKAPS beta carotene soft gelatin capsule contains 2 mg purified beta carotene. The recommended daily dose is 1 capsule twice daily, in the morning and evening, taken with a meal.
