How to get most benefits of Vitamin A and Carotenes

To get the most benefit from Vitamin A and Carotenes you should know how it works. Vitamin A and beta carotene are fat-soluble, which means you store them in your liver and in the fatty tissues of your body.VitaMinder Vitamin Chest: K

To avoid any chance of a toxic buildup, we suggest you stick to the Vitamin A in your daily multivitamin supplement and skip any additional A supplements.
But if you’re having one of those frantic days where eating right is way down on your priority list, taking a mixed carotenoid supplement can help make up for that skipped breakfast, fast-food lunch, and takeout dinner.

These supplements contain beta carotene, lycopene, lutein, and other carotenoids.
To get the most benefit of Vitamin A and beta carotene, be sure to also get sufficient amount for Vitamin E, zinc, and selenium. You need Vitamin E to help Vitamin A work more effectively; you also need extra Vitamin E if you take large doses (more than 15 g daily) of beta carotene supplements.

You need zinc to help transport Vitamin A around your body and you need selenium to help beta carotene work more effectively.
Vitamin A and beta carotene are blocked by alcohol, cigarettes smoking, birth control pills, Bile-sequestering cholesterol drugs, drug used to treat arthritis, psoriasis, or cancer.
Don’t overdo on the Vitamin A supplements—more than 5,000 IU (1,000 RE) a day can be harmful.

To avoid possible problems and get maximal benefit doctors suggest taking mixed carotenes instead. In this case you’ll get your A’s along with extra antioxidant protection.
