Beta Carotene

Why do we need beta carotene and what does it do for our body and health? Here’s a quick overview and as you can see it’s primarily to do with Vitamin A.

Below is a list of foods containing beta carotene. Sadly with all of the pollution assailing us there is a need to focus on our intake in order to support our body’s efforts in keeping us healthy.

In yesterday’s blog I thought carrots were the gem, but according to research they have the fourth highest level.

Recently I am garnering a new respect for the health benefits of the lowly potato. Sweet potatoes are third on this list.

Potatoes will be the topic of a future blog.
