The difference between Vitamin A and Beta Carotene

Vitamin A was first recognised as an essential nutritional factor by Elmer McCollum in 1915 and later isolated from fish liver oils. There are two natural forms: Vitamin A1 (Retinol) and Vitamin A2. Beta carotene is a precursor of vitamin A, found in plants. It is enzymatically converted to vitamin A in the body as it is required.

Beta carotene is considered safer than taking vitamin A because the body only converts the amount it needs at any point in time. Many people such as vegetarians rely almost solely on beta carotene for their vitamin A requirements.

How it works in our bodies

Beta carotene that is not required to be converted into vitamin A circulates in the blood, acting as a powerful anti-oxidant and free radical scavenger. Beta carotene and other carotenoids contribute to the health-keeping benefits of a diet high in fruit and vegetables.

Vitamin A is easily used up by the acids and oxidants in smog and cigarette smoke, so it is vital to get optimum amounts daily. Beta carotene has an important antioxidant function: it scavenges free radicals. One significant characteristic of the fat-soluble vitamins is that they can be stored in the body in large amounts, so that the effects of their deficiency in the diet may not manifest for many months.
