Amazing Health Benefits of Beta-Carotene

pic10_109276358Did you know that delicious foods such as cantaloupe, peaches, apricots, oranges and papayas, carrots and sweet potatoes support your breast and menstrual health? They also give you glowing, radiant skin, and healthy vision!

All of these foods are rich sources of a form of vitamin A called beta-carotene. Beta-carotene has amazing health benefits. It helps to protect the body from developing many types of cancer, including cervical, lung, and bladder cancer. It also helps to prevent heart attacks and lowers the risk of strokes.

Beta-carotene rich foods also help to improve female health. Deficiencies in beta-carotene have been linked to benign breast disease, heavy menstrual bleeding, and skin aging. Because it is needed for healthy mucous membranes, a lack of beta-carotene can worsen the signs of aging of the vagina and genitourinary tract after menopause.

It is also essential for healthy immune function, resistance to infection, and healthy vision. Enjoy beta-carotene rich foods every day for excellent health! Love, Dr. Susan
