Additional Info
Pharma Nord TanCare 60 Tablets  BioActive TanCare contains a big dose of pure beta-carotene. BioActive TanCare is manufactured in a way where betacarotene is mixed into an oil matrix that keeps it stable and increases bio-availability.In fact, studies document that betacarotene in supplemental form has better bio-availability than the betacarotene found in fruits and vegetables. Betacarotene is a carotenoid. The carotenoids are divided into two main groups: carotenes and xanthophylls. Carotenes consists of hydrogen and carbon, while xanthophylls additionally contain oxygen atoms. Betacarotene belongs to a group of yellow and red plant dyes. It is betacarotene which gives carrots their orange colour. Betacarotene is fat soluble, ie. is best absorbed along with a fat. This takes place in the upper part of the small intestine. Betacarotene is also a provitamin, as it can be converted to vitamin A when the body is in need. Betacarotene and vitamin A Betacarotene is a good source of vegetable vitamin A, and in some parts of the world beta-carotene is virtually the population's only source of vitamin A. When betacarotene is converted to vitamin A, this will contribute to the maintenance of normal skin and mucous membranes. It would also be included in the maintenance of normal eyesight. Vitamin A has a role in the process of cell specialisation in the body and contributes to a normal immune function. Ingestion of food and dietary supplements with large quantities (30 mg or more) of betacarotene may provide the skin with a harmless yellowish color that some people find attractive. The colour is a result of betacarotene accumulating in the subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis), mainly on the hands and feet. This colour vanishes as soon as the beta-carotene quantities are reduced.

Betacarotene and smokers All dietary supplements that contain betacarotene must carry a warning for smokers, advising them against the use of product. This warning is based on research showing that large doses of betacarotene taken by heavy smokers may increase their risk of lung cancer. There is no evidence suggesting that betacarotene supplements are harmful for non-smokers. In addition, there is no reason to fear getting too much vitamin A from betacarotene, as the body stops converting it once its stores are saturated.
