Carotenoid capsules: natural, orthomolecular carotenoid mix

Carotenoid complex capsules by Vitamintrend is a dietary supplement based on beta-carotene, marigold extract (lutein, zeaxanthin), tomato extract (lycopene), kale powder and blueberry powder.

Carotenoids are secondary plant substances. The most commonly knows is beta-carotene, which is the precursor of vitamin A. If required, the body is able to convert it to vitamin A in the liver. Vitamin A is vital for growth, the maintenance of a good vision, the support of the immune system and the protein synthesis. Carotenoids can be found in almost every type of fruit and vegetables and they give them their yellow-orange colour.

Importance of natural carotenoids

Vitamin A and its analogues are able to support the DNA function. In the human body, the carotenoids beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin and lycopene act as antioxidants.

Beta-carotene can mostly be found in food and it contributes to the maintenance of healthy skin and mucous membranes. It supports the thymus gland and therefore our immune system. Beta-carotene is the most effective precursor of vitamin A. However, its conversion to vitamin A is limited. Along with vitamin A, it is able to protect the skin.

During cooking (or in the form of puree or juice), most of the vegetables release more beta-carotene, because the cells are broken down. While consuming beta-carotene or carotenoids in general, always make sure to consume these plant ingredients in a natural compound, because the absorption and effect in the body are better.

Lycopene from tomato extract

Lycopene belongs to the carotenoids without provitamin A activity. As an antioxidant, it is able to protect the cells against free radicals. The body cannot synthesise lycopene itself and is dependent on the intake through food. Good sources of lycopene are tomatoes, watermelons, guavas, rosehips and grapefruits.
The lycopene in the carotenoid capsules is derived from tomato extract, which is standardised to 5% lycopene.

Zeaxanthin and lutein from marigold extract

Zeaxanthin occurs in the marigold. It protects the flower against UV radiation and is an excellent antioxidant. The main carotenoid in marigold is lutein. Along with zeaxanthin, it can have positive properties for eye health.
In the food industry, lutein is often used as an additive, for example, for yellowing egg yolks.
The marigold extract in the carotenoid complex capsules is standardised to 20% lutein and 2.5% zeaxanthin.

Blueberry fruit powder and kale powder additionally support a good resorption and properties of the carotenoid in a natural compound. Furthermore, the anthocyanins in blueberries are able to support the well-being with the antioxidant power.
Kale has been known for its health-promoting effects since ancient times. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements (good source of vitamin A, K and C as well as calcium and iron). Its secondary plant ingredients such as flavonoids are regarded as antioxidant. Kale also contains mustard oil glycosides.
