PARRY'S
NATURAL MIXED CAROTENOIDS

ANTIOXIDANT POWERHOUSE.

RESTORES PHYSIOLOGICAL BALANCE.

Parry's Natural Mixed Carotenoids display effective anti-oxidant properties that help in protecting the body against cell and tissue damage by scavenging free radicals. It is a blend of nature's best antioxidants, collectively called "Natural Mixed Carotenoids", which include Beta-carotene, Alpha-carotene and Xanthophyll's like Zeaxanthin, Cryptoxanthin and Lutein, extracted from the microalga Dunaliella saline, the richest source.

CAROTENOIDS - THE SUPER PIGMENTS

Carotenoids are pigments found in plants and other organisms such as algae and some species of fungi and bacteria that carry out photosynthesis. These pigments play a dual role: to absorb energy from sunlight during photosynthesis and to protect plant cells from photodamage.

Carotenoids are a large group of more than 600 different biochemicals. Some of these molecules are provitamin A and have a range of diverse biological functions in relation to human health. There are more than 400 carotenoids found in nature and Beta-carotene is perhaps the most important one. Beta-carotene is used in food industry as a colouring additive, antioxidant and as provitamin A.

NATURAL MIXED CAROTENOIDS

The unicellular microalga, Dunaliella salina is one of the natural sources of Natural Mixed Carotenoids. It accumulates massive amounts of Beta-carotene. The Beta-carotene synthesis increases with the unbalanced physiological conditions of cell, created due to various stress factors. A normal cell has a condition of physiological balance. Under stress conditions this balance is disturbed, such as formation of excessive tee radicals. In order to protect and continue growth, the cells are known to generate additional Beta-carotene under stressed conditions. The pigment has antioxidant property that quenches excessive free radicals, restoring the physiological balance.

UNDERSTANDING THE ISOMERS OF BETA-CAROTENE

NATURAL MIXED CAROTENOIDS

Cis Isomer

  • Found only in Natural sources of Beta-carotene
  • Strong antioxidant and free radical quencher
  • Enhances Bio-availability
  • Improves absorption of Trans Isomer

All-Trans Isomer

  • 100% vitamin A precursor
  • Does not possess free radical quenching property
  • Synthetic Beta-carotene is 98-100% All-Trans

NATURAL BETA-CAROTENE
CLEARLY ABOVE OTHER SYNTHETIC FORMS

Natural Beta-carotene

  • Source of Natural mixed carotenoids, predominantly Beta-carotene
  • Therapeutically more effective and well absorbed
  • Contains both cis and trans isomers, exhibiting vitamin A and antioxidant activity
  • 9 Cis Beta-carotene is a good solvent for all trans Beta-carotene enhancing bio-availability

Synthetic Beta-carotene

  • Provides only Beta-carotene
  • Less effective and not well absorbed
  • Contains only trans isomers : Exhibits vitamin A activity only
  • All- trans has high tendency to crystallize exhibiting low bio-availability

NATURAL BETA-CAROTENE - DUAL ROLE

Natural Beta-carotene functions in two ways

  • As provitamin A, which is due to its ability to be converted to vitamin A as and when the body requires
  • As an antioxidant, protects against cell and tissue damage by scavenging free radicals.

This dual function of Natural Beta-carotene is due to the presence of Cis and Trans Beta-carotene Isomers.

Natural Beta-carotene is readily converted by the body into vitamin A and thus plays an essential role in vision, growth, reproduction and regulation of the immune system and in helping maintain the health and integrity of the skin and mucous membranes. However, while high doses of vitamin A can be toxic, Beta-carotene is only converted to vitamin A by the body as required, thus making it non-toxic and safe.

SUPERIOR FEATURES

  • Parry's Natural Beta-carotene with Mixed Carotenoids is extracted from Dunaliella salina, the nature's richest source.
  • Parry's Natural Mixed Carotenoids are safe due to its unique ratio of Cis vs Trans Isomers.
  • High Cis Isomer content and an ideal composition of different carotenoids that act in synergy, make Parry Natural Mixed Carotenoids a potent antioxidant.
  • It is highly stable and easily absorbed by the human body due to its high bioavailability.
  • Parry Natural Mixed Carotenoids are gelatin-free and 100% vegetarian.
