Porter's five forces model in the report provides insights into the competitive rivalry, supplier and buyer positions in the market and opportunities for the new entrants in the global beta-carotene
market over the period of 2017 to 2025.
Zagajewski et al., "Different effect of beta-carotene
on proliferation of prostate cancer cells," Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA)-Molecular Basis of Disease, vol.
Other investigators have reported that the beta-carotene
content in cooked orange-fleshed sweet potatoes was 67 mg per kg to 160 mg per kg, which was similar to the researchers' ingredients.
The bioavailability and VA equivalency of beta-carotene
in biofortified cassava was assessed in two studies in US women (Table 1) [3, 4].
It was assumed that AFB1 could be responsible for oxidative stress related apoptosis in MDCK cells and the beta-carotene
may act as regulator of cellular pathways involved in apoptosis by adjusting ROS production within the cells.
Bausch + Lomb, which supplied supplements for both AREDS trials, still sells the AREDS1 formula with beta-carotene
(left) or with lutein in its place (not shown).
The team found that orange-fleshed honeydew had significantly higher beta-carotene
concentrations than cantaloupe, but the two melon types had similar beta-carotene
Increased intake of beta-carotene
, vitamin C, or magnesium was associated with better hearing at both speech and high frequencies.
The nanostructure protects beta-carotene
against degradation and it modifies its sorption in the body.
Furthermore, a statistically significant reduction of 18% in risk of progression to advanced AMD for patients receiving lutein and zeaxanthin in the absence of beta-carotene
, when compared with patients receiving an AREDS formulation with beta-carotene
(and not receiving L+Z), was reported.
In the present work, the model equations for simultaneous determination of beta-carotene
and lycopene concentrations in hexane layer extract of lycopene/[beta]-carotene mixtures have been derived.
Hammad went on to say, “We needed to determine if beta-carotene
is actually helping our patients and if lutein, zeaxanthin or omega-3 fatty acids could reduce risk of developing AMD.”
