A-Potene, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contains 25,000 IU of beta-carotene in each softgel.
Beta-carotene is a safe precursor of vitamin A. Human intestinal enzymes convert dietary beta-carotene into active vitamin A. The extent of this conversion appears to be based on the need for vitamin A since even very large amounts of beta-carotene do not increase plasma or liver vitamin A levels above normal.
One milligram of beta-carotene provides 1,667 I.U. of vitamin A activity. Beta-carotene not converted to vitamin A is absorbed intact and has other functions in the body. Beta-carotene is an important antioxidant nutrient that protects healthy cells from oxidative and free radical damage.
A-Potene may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their daily beta-carotene intake.
