Carotino red palm oil is a very rich source of carotenoids;
Vitamin A is produced in the body from carotene.
Compared to carrots, "Carotino" contains 15 times more carotenoids - it is the carotenes that give the oil a red color.
Vitamin A helps maintain normal vision, skin and mucous membrane health, helps maintain normal iron metabolism and promotes normal immune function.
Vitamin A (also carotenoids) is a fat-soluble vitamin - fat is needed for it to be absorbed by our body: that is why Carotino oil is a great source of this vitamin, as it provides both vitamin A and its absorption.
Carotino is rich in tocotrienols, a very rare form of vitamin E.
The basic role of vitamin E in the body is to be an antioxidant;
Different forms of vitamin E (Tocopherols and Tocotrienols) differ in their biological activity;
Tocotrienols have 40-60 times higher antioxidant efficacy than a-tocopherol;
Vitamin E promotes the protection of cells against oxidative stress
