  • ALPHA CAROTENE DESCRIPTION

    Alpha Carotene is a specific form of carotene with a b-ring and e-ring at opposite ends. It is part of the carotenoid family which gives carrots, tomatoes, and other colorful vegetables their vibrant hues.

    Alpha carotene is one of the most abundant carotenoids in the North American diet. It is a "Provitamin A" compound, one of approximately 50 carotenoids able to be converted in the body into retinol, an active form of vitamin A. Alpha-carotene has approximately one-half of the vitamin A activity of beta-carotene. Alpha carotene is often found in carotene complex supplements and best obtained through the diet. It is seldom available as a stand-alone dietary supplement.

    ANTIOXIDANT IN ORANGE FRUITS & VEGETABLES TIED TO HEALTH BENEFITS

    Orange is the way to go when it comes to fruits and vegetables. Eating plentiful amounts of carrots, tangerines, and pumpkin pie may reward you with certain health benefits, new research suggests. People with high blood levels of alpha-carotene, an antioxidant found in orange-colored fruits and vegetables, live longer and are less like to die of heart disease and cancer than those with little or none of it in their bloodstream, according to a study published in the March issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine. During a 14-year trial, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that those with the highest concentrations of alpha-carotene were nearly 40 percent less likely to have died during the study than those with the lowest. Participants with medium levels, meanwhile, were 27 percent less likely to have died. Study authors say more research is needed to determine exactly how alpha-carotene-rich foods protect your health.


    HIGH LEVELS OF NATURAL PLANT ANTIOXIDANT ALPHA-CAROTENE ARE ASSOCIATED WITH FEWER DEATHS FROM ALL CASES
    Tuesday, November 30, 2010 by: S. L. Baker, Features Writer

    (NaturalNews.com) Picture this: a chemical is discovered that has amazing health-protecting powers. In fact, if a person consumes enough of the potent life guarding compound, his or her chances of dying from heart disease, cancer or any other reason will plummet for many, many years into the future.

    Sound like a futuristic drug out of a sci fi story? It's not. Instead, it's a natural compound available right here and right now -- the antioxidant alpha-carotene, produced by plants.

    In a large study of over 15,000 adults, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) scientists found that high blood levels of alpha-carotene were associated with a significantly reduced risk of dying over a 14 year period. The research was just published in the on-line edition of the Archives of Internal Medicine.

    There are several forms of carotenoids, including beta-carotene and lycopene as well as alpha-carotene. Alpha-carotene is very similar to beta-carotene but research has shown it may be more effective at preventing or blocking the growth of cancer cells in the brain, liver and skin, according to the CDC scientists.

    "Moreover, results from a population-based case-control study of the association between the consumption of fruits and vegetables and risk of lung cancer suggest that consumption of yellow-orange (carrots, sweet potatoes or pumpkin and winter squash) and dark-green (broccoli, green beans, green peas, spinach, turnips greens, collards and leaf lettuce) vegetables, which have a high alpha-carotene content, was more strongly associated with a decreased risk of lung cancer than was consumption of all other types of vegetables," the authors of the study noted in their paper.

    Chaoyang Li, M.D., Ph.D., of the CDC and colleagues investigated the relationship between alpha-carotene and the risk of death among 15,318 adults, all age 20 or older. The research subjects were participants in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey Follow-up Study and all had medical exams and gave blood samples between 1988 and 1994. Then researchers followed the study volunteers through 2006 to find out which of them died and how.

    By the end of the study, 3,810 participants were no longer alive -- but the risk for dying was far lower in the people who had the highest levels of alpha-carotene in their blood. In fact, as the level of alpha-carotene went up, the risk of dying went down dramatically.

    For example, compared to people with blood alpha-carotene levels between 0 and 1 micrograms per deciliter, those with concentrations of alpha-carotene between 4 and 5 micrograms per deciliter had a 27 percent lower risk of dying. And when blood levels of the antioxidant reached 9 micrograms or higher, there was stunning, almost 40 percent lowered chance of death.

    What's more, higher alpha-carotene concentrations were linked with a lower risk of dying not only from cardiovascular disease or cancer, and from all other causes. The researchers noted in their paper that these data support increasing fruit and vegetable consumption as a way of preventing premature death and suggest a need for more clinical research into the health benefits of alpha-carotene.

    ALPHA CAROTENE USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    ALPHA CAROTENE FOOD SOURCES

    Interestingly, there are hundreds of vegetables which contain carotenoids but whose colors are not vibrant because they are blocked by green colored chlorophyll. Of all the carotenes utilized by humans, alpha and beta carotene are the most common. Food sources containing concentrated amounts of alpha carotene include carrots, sweet potatoes, kale, spinach, turnip greens, collard greens, winter squash, tomatoes, green beans, cilantro, fresh thyme, cantaloupe, romaine lettuce, broccoli, avocados, apples and Swiss chard. To maximize the availability of the carotenoids in the foods listed above, the foods should be eaten raw or steamed lightly. Individuals should consume five or more servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

    The most beneficial aspect of alpha carotene is the fact that it can be converted by the body into vitamin A. Vitamin A has long been associated with healthy skin, strong bones, excellent vision, and a properly functioning immune system. This may be one of the reasons why individuals who eat large amounts of vegetables seem to be healthier and have better overall physical fitness. Alpha carotene has also been studied as an effective antioxidant supplement.

    ALPHA CAROTENE NUTRITIONAL USES

  • Antioxidant - Antioxidants are very effective in reducing free radicals in the body. Among all of the antioxidants, few work as effectively as alpha carotene. Beta carotene also works as an antioxidant but is seemingly not as effective as alpha carotene.

  • Bone Strength - A daily intake of carotenoids may be helpful in the prevention of rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.

  • Fights Free Radicals - Protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are rogue oxygen molecules that can cause a whole host of physical problems if not kept in check. Examples of those problems include heart disease, vascular system issues, and even some types of cancers. Controlling free radicals has been linked to overall good health in several major studies. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why alpha carotene is often advertised as a supplement to aid overall good health. Such claims have been bolstered somewhat by a study that was released in 2010 and published by the Archives of Internal Medicine. The study was conducted by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who looked at more than 15,000 subjects and the levels of carotene in their bodies. The 18-year study collected blood samples from subjects and included research into how those who passed away during the period died. The researchers concluded that those with consistently high levels of alpha carotene in their systems tended to live longer than those without. Researchers believe that alpha carotene's effectiveness as an antioxidant is the main reason why certain subjects live longer.

  • Immune Health - Enhances the functioning of the immune system. In recent years, carotenoids including Alpha-Carotene have received a tremendous amount of attention as potential anti-cancer and anti-aging compounds. Alpha-carotene is a powerful antioxidant, protecting the cells of the body from damage caused by free radicals.

  • Skin Health - A daily intake of carotenoids may be helpful in the prevention of skin cancer.

  • Vision - A daily intake of carotenoids may be helpful in the prevention of macular degeneration, cataracts and photosensitivity issues.

  • Provide a source of Vitamin A and preventing Vitamin A deficiency. Until late in the 20th Century, the functions of carotenoids, including alpha-carotene, were discussed only in terms of their potential vitamin A activity. Alpha-carotene is one of approximately 50 carotenoids of the known 600. Carotenoids are called Provitamin A compounds because the body can convert them into retinol, an active form of vitamin A. As a result, foods that contain alpha-carotene can help prevent vitamin A deficiency. In addition to beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin, alpha-carotene is among the most commonly consumed provitamin A carotenoids in the North American diet.

  • Promoting Proper Cell Communication - In addition to their antioxidant and immune-enhancing activity, carotenoids including alpha-carotene have shown the ability to stimulate cell to cell communication. Researchers now believe that poor communication between cells may be one of the causes of the overgrowth of cells, a condition which eventually leads to cancer. By promoting proper communication between cells, carotenoids may play a role in cancer prevention.

  • Infertility - A daily intake of carotenoids may help the reproductive system to function properly.

  • Smoking and regular alcohol consumption may require more foods that are rich in Alpha Carotene. There have been some studies suggesting a link between excess carotenes and premature death in smokers. No concrete reason has been given for this link, so it is possible that the role of excess carotenes is rather minimal. Nonetheless, the link suggests that smokers refrain from taking alpha carotene as a supplement and instead simply maintain a healthy and balanced diet.

  • Low dietary intake of fruits and vegetables may require more foods that are rich in Alpha Carotene. In certain cases, cooking can improve the availability of carotenoids in foods. For example, lightly steaming carrots and spinach improves your body's ability to absorb the carotenoids in these foods.

    ALPHA CAROTENE DOSAGE INFORMATION

    ALPHA CAROTENE SUPPLEMENTS

    Unlike beta-carotene, alpha-carotene is not often found as a single dietary supplement. When it is found, it is more commonly seen in food-based carotene complex dietary supplements, which suggests that most of the quantities found in people's blood comes from food (primarily yellow-orange and dark green vegetables and fruits, including broccoli, carrots, collards, green beans, lettuce, peas, pumpkin, spinach, sweet potatoes, and winter squash). Eating more of these sorts of alpha-carotene-rich foods and increasing fruit and vegetable consumption is a means of preventing premature death. The best way to obtain plentiful alpha carotene and other nutrients is to make yourself fresh vegetable and fruit smoothies or juices daily using the above foods.

    DEFICIENCY FACTORS & SYMPTOMS

    Carotenoids such as alpha-carotene are fat-soluble substances, and as such require the presence of dietary fat for proper absorption through the digestive tract. Consequently, your alpha-carotene status may be impaired by a diet that is extremely low in fat or if you have a medical condition that causes a reduction in the ability to absorb dietary fat such as pancreatic enzyme deficiency, Crohn's disease, celiac sprue, cystic fibrosis, surgical removal of part or all of the stomach, gall bladder disease, and liver disease. Supplementing your diet with pectin may decrease the absorptioon of carotenoids. Take these supplements separately at different times of the day to prevent nutrient interactions.

    Due to low consumption of fruits and vegetables, many adolescents and young adults do not take in enough carotenoids. In addition, if you smoke cigarettes and/or drink alcohol, you may have lower than normal blood levels of alpha-carotene. Statistically speaking, smokers and drinkers eat fewer foods that contain carotenoids such as alpha-carotene. Also, researchers suspect that cigarette smoke destroys carotenoids. However, if you do smoke or drink, use carotenoid supplements with caution.

    A low dietary intake of carotenoids such as alpha-carotene is not known to directly cause any diseases or health conditions, at least in the short term. However, if your intake of vitamin A is also low, a dietary deficiency of Alpha Carotene and/or other Provitamin A carotenoids can cause the symptoms associated with vitamin A deficiency. In addition, long-term inadequate intake of carotenoids is associated with chronic disease, including heart disease and various cancers. One important mechanism for this carotenoid-disease relationship appears to be free radicals. Research indicates that diets low in alpha-carotene and carotenoids can increase the body's susceptibility to damage from free radicals. As a result, over the long term, alpha-carotene deficient diets may increase tissue damage from free radical activity, and increase risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and cancers.

    DIET VS SUPPLEMENTS

    There is an ongoing argument within the supplement community as to whether or not alpha-carotene is better taken as a supplement or ingested as part of a balanced diet. Some supplement marketers have floated the idea that the body better absorbs alpha carotene when taken in supplement form. However, medical studies beg to differ. It would appear as though supplements may have some beneficial effect, but the body best absorbs Alpha Carotene when it is sourced from a healthy diet rich in carotene containing vegetables. As the debate rages some supplement companies make the case that supplements are a good idea in lieu of a balanced diet. This is a reasonable claim due to the fact that most Americans do not eat a well balanced diet. If supplementation is the only way most people will get enough Alpha Carotene in their systems, it is probably a good idea according to supplement makers. However, whether or not to supplement is a decision that is ultimately left to the individual and his or her health care provider.





    ALPHA CAROTENE SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS INFORMATION

    SAFETY CONCERNS

    Various studies involving Alpha Carotene, and Carotenoids in general, did not show any serious side effects when taken in moderation by healthy individuals. High intake of carotenoid containing foods or supplements is not associated with any toxic side effects. In fact, no upper limit dosage has been recommended by the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine at the National Academy of Sciences, which studied carotenes, did not establilsh a Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL) for carotenoids when it reviewed these compounds in 2000. That being said, health care practitioners still caution against taking Alpha Carotene in excess because of the general rule of toxicity associated with excess consumption of any supplement. Remember that these supplements are not regulated by the FDA. Read labels and purchase a quality, food-sourced supplement, if possible.

    Despite all of the well known benefits of vitamin A and antioxidants, there is still quite a bit about alpha carotene that remains unknown. Therefore it is advised that individuals consult their health care practitioners before beginning a supplement regimen that includes daily intake of alpha carotene.
