CarotenAll 60 softgels - alpha-carotene, astaxanthin, beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin and lycopene | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas CarotenAll contains alpha and beta-carotene extracted from palm fruit (Caromin) in ratios identical to carrots. One softgel of CarotenAll provides greater amounts of the major carotenoids (Alpha-, Beta-Carotene, Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Lycopene) than 5–6 servings of fruits and vegetables.
who can benefit from CarotenAll?
CarotenAll would benefit most adults as a recent study found that only a minority of adults met the guidelines for intake of both fruits and vegetables
what distinguishes CarotenAll?
• CarotenAll provides a combination of six dietary carotenoids in an amount equivalent to that found in 5-6 average servings of fruits and vegetables as well as gamma-tocopherol, a natural form of vitamin E
• it also contains alpha- and beta-carotene, here extracted from palm fruit, in ratios identical to that found in carrots
• Lycopene, Phytoene and Phytofluene are antioxidant carotenoids extracted from GMO-free tomatoes by Lyc-O-Mato
how does each active ingredient function in CarotenAll?
• alpha- and beta-carotene are distributed throughout the body and have been investigated in a wide range of biological roles, such as for improving lung function, serving as antioxidants, stimulating immune response and regulating cell death (apoptosis)
• Lycopene supports healthy prostate function and protects against damage from free radical singlet oxygen.
• Lutein and zeaxanthin concentrate in the eye's macula and lens and protect these tissues from oxidative stress
• Astaxanthin is a highly potent antioxidant carotenoid found in seafood and algae that protects lipids from peroxidation
• gamma tocopherol works synergistically with the carotenoids to reduce the free radical forms of one another

Six reasons why eggs are awesome superfoodsEggs are so nutritious they can be nicknamed nature's oldest superfood.
Eggs are abundant in essential vitamins and minerals as well as unique antioxidants and brain nutrients many people are lacking in their nutrition when they don't eat eggs regularly.
Here is a breakdown of the six reasons why eggs are such an awesome food choice
Pigmentation spots : why do we get them when we age?Do you sometimes look down onto your arms and notice they are covered with white spots that resemble freckles in reverse?
Especially when arms get tanned in summer, these white spots tend to stand out more than ever.
This led me to the idea to look up what can be a cause of this weird pigmentation.
Mine turns out to be one called idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis (IGH), in other words, an unexplained teardrop-shaped lack of pigmentation, which is apparently very common among most people of over 40 years , but may also happen at a younger age. These white spots appear on the shins, legs, arms, and other sun-exposed areas of the body like the face, neck, and shoulders.
Apparently the body experiences a gradual reduction of melanoyctes and skin cells no longer produce pigment, a similar process that causes the graying of hair. The condition is also increasingly being seen in both sexes and darker skinned individuals with a history of long-term sun exposure, which has lead scientists to believe that excessive sun exposure and sun damage is another cause of these white spots.
They are generally 1 to 3 mm in size and commonly show up on the legs before progressing to other parts of the body.
These white spots are not caused by trauma or infection, nor do they indicate an increased risk of skin cancer.
Hereditary factors may be involved because this skin problem seems to run in families.
IGH is not related to vitiligo, in which melanin-producing cells called melanocytes die or are unable to function properly and no longer form melanin.
Other common causes of skin discolorations are
LASIK eye surgery, is it safe?In the past decade, LASIK eye surgery has boomed in popularity. It is easy to understand why: instead of wearing contacts or glasses, after surgery your eyes are corrected to result into (almost) perfect vision. However, sometimes we also hear horror stories: late 2016 Dutch television showed a program in which a house physician laments he's suffering from horrible neuralgic pains after having undergone laser surgery. Experts claim this is an extremely rare side effect from a specific type of LASIK surgery that nobody needs to worry about.
Protect your body against the dangers of agingAntioxidants, everyone has heard of them, but only a few know what they really are and what they do.
Antioxidants are present in fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains, where they protect the plant against insects. Fruits and vegetables that have bright, distinctive (dark) colors, have the highest amount of antioxidants, such as the very well known red tomatoes, blueberries, purple grapes, green (and purple!) kale, yellow corn and orange carrots.
What to wear: a pair of glasses or contacts?!
A short while ago, yours truly went back to wearing eye glasses after having worn contacts for over 30 years. My eyes had 'run dry' and as a result an inflammation snuck in, causing an inability to wear (hard) contacts. Despite having worn glasses as a kid and young adult, it took me longer to adapt to them than expected. This has much to do with the fact I now need two pairs of glasses: one for reading and another one for further away. With two pairs it seems as if you are always wearing the wrong pair and.. where did I put them down again?
