Advanced Research Carotavit Beta Carotene - 100 Vegetarian Capsules
Advanced Research Carotavit Beta Carotene is a quality health care supplement product formulated by Hans A. Nieper, M.D. Beta-carotene is a substance from plants that the body converts into vitamin A. It also acts as an antioxidant and an immune system booster. Most beta-carotene in supplements is synthetic, consisting of only one molecule called all trans beta-carotene. Natural beta-carotene, found in food, is made of two molecules—all trans beta-carotene and 9-cis beta-carotene.
Researchers originally saw no meaningful difference between natural and synthetic beta-carotene. This view was questioned when the link between beta-carotene-containing foods (all natural) and lung cancer prevention was not duplicated in studies using synthetic pills. In smokers, synthetic beta-carotene has apparently caused an increased risk of lung cancer and disease of the blood vessels in double-blind research. Animal research has begun to identify the ways in which synthetic beta-carotene might cause damage to lungs, particularly when animals are exposed to cigarette smoke.
Much of natural beta-carotene is in the all trans molecule form—the same as synthetic beta-carotene. Moreover, much of the 9-cis molecule found only in natural beta-carotene is converted to the synthetic molecule before it reaches the bloodstream. Also, absorption of 9-cis beta-carotene appears to be poor, though some researchers question this finding.
Despite the overlap between natural and synthetic forms, natural beta-carotene may possibly have activity that is distinct from the synthetic form. For example, studies in both animals and humans have shown that the natural form has antioxidant activity that the synthetic form lacks. Also, in one trial, pre-cancerous changes in people reverted to normal tissue with natural beta-carotene supplements, but not with synthetic supplements. Israeli researchers have investigated whether the special antioxidant effects of natural beta-carotene might help people suffering from asthma attacks triggered by exercise. People with asthma triggered by exercise were given 64 mg per day of natural beta-carotene for one week. In that report, 20 of 38 patients receiving natural beta-carotene were protected against exercise-induced asthma. However, because synthetic beta-carotene was not tested, the difference between the activity of the two supplements cannot be deduced from this report.
Increasingly, doctors are recommending that people supplement only with natural beta-carotene. However, no studies have explored whether the adverse effect of synthetic beta-carotene in cigarette smokers would also occur with natural beta-carotene supplementation. Until more is known, smokers should avoid all beta-carotene supplements and others should avoid synthetic beta-carotene.
In supplements, the natural form can be identified by the phrases “from D. salina,”“from an algal source,”“from a palm source,” or as “natural beta-carotene” on the label. The synthetic form is identified as “beta-carotene.”
Dr. Hans A Nieper has achieved (during his lifetime) International acclaim in Science, Medicine and Technology. As reported in several International Journals, Dr. Nieper is truly one of the greatest luminaries of this century. In addition to his research, theories and promulgation of vacuum/space field Tachyon physics and technologies (Telsa), he was the President of the International Association of Space Field Energy Scientists.
In Medicine, his discoveries of various "metabolic substances" orotates, aspartates, arginates and AEP compounds, which are necessary in cell metabolism, resulted in great demands for his lectures including the World Health Organization's Cancer Symposium and adoption of various Government Medical Authorities (in Germany) of several of his successful "Non-Toxic" Medical protocols. Dr. Nieper was also the President of the German Oncology Society.
Advanced Research nutritional supplements are the progression of Dr. Nieper's commitment to metabolic therapies in harmony with nature. They painstakingly research each raw ingredient to assure that the highest potency, most assimilable materials are used and that they meet Dr. Nieper's Standard of excellence. All their products are then scientifically formulated and meticulously manufactured.
