CAROTENES are a group of chemical compounds from the carotenoid family, which are naturally occurring dyes in plants. Among carotenes, beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin are the most important for the human body. Beta-carotene is a precursor to vitamin A in the body. Which is essential for the health of vision, skin and the immune system. Lutein and zeaxanthin, on the other hand, play a role in protecting the eyes. Especially against the harmful effects of UV radiation. For athletes, carotenes, especially beta-carotene, may be important for their antioxidant properties. Physical exercise causes an increase in the production of free radicals in the body, which can lead to tissue damage and delay the process of muscle regeneration after training. Antioxidants such as carotenes neutralize free radicals and help prevent these negative effects.
Dosage: varies depending on the type of carotenoid.
