In early 2021, a new Avivagen product for people hit the market – it’s called Beta Blend and it is an Avivagen exclusive formula for providing advanced immune support. At Avivagen, we want people to live their best life. And this is why we are committed to developing products to support better health.
“Been using the Beta Blend for the 50mg Beta-Carotene Norisoprenoid Blend and I’m sure the vitamin A helps too. Been taking these just over three weeks, taking one pill morning and one early evening with food (I find that is the way I need to take them). They appear to be working well as after a couple weeks I experienced relief from a gut issue. I would recommend these.
This is an update as of July 22nd 2021 – Continuing use of the Beta Blend with Beta-Carotene Norisoprenoid Blend and the results have gotten a bit better yet and are extremely good. Very pleased with the results.”
Epidemiological studies show that eating fruits and vegetables protect us against diseases like cancer and heart disease – especially eating foods with beta carotene.
Although beta carotene is a source of vitamin A, the levels of the vitamin are tightly controlled in the body and we cannot explain the results. But what if beta carotene has an effect apart from being a source of vitamin A? Originally, it was thought beta carotene functions as an antioxidant.
Human clinical intervention trials testing high doses of supplemental beta carotene show significant increases in cancer incidence and mortality in heavy smokers and people exposed to asbestos. Many studies get underway to try and explain the negative outcome of the trials.
Although beta carotene is a source of vitamin A, the levels of the vitamin are tightly controlled in the body and cannot explain the results. But what if beta carotene has an effect apart from being a source of vitamin A? From here, we wondered if beta carotene oxidation products play a role.
Our team confirms that when beta carotene is oxidized, it has properties consistent with helping prevent cancer (U.S. Patent No. 5,475,006). The transformation of beta carotene by oxidation provides the actual active agents to support immune function.
Avivagen first saw these results in dogs and livestock.
Now we know that the non-vitamin A effects of beta carotene originates in its oxidation products.
Avivagen confirms that beta carotene oxidation products occur naturally, often in significant quantities. For example, in plant food products, and humans have safely ingested dietary beta carotene oxidation products over countless years. Studies confirm it is safe.
Avivagen is the first company to develop a supplement that conveniently provides the full benefits of beta carotene as well as vitamin A. This product is now improving overall health in livestock, pets and humans. And the next chapter? More products that help all of us live our best life.
