Sun Damage Fighters: Beta Carotene


Beta-carotene converts to vitamin A in the body.  While supplements have not proven in studies to help prevent skin cancer specifically, diets high in beta-carotene-rich fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of some other cancers. This potent antioxidant also boosts the immune system's ability to fight disease.

Beta-carotene is found in orange colored vegetables and fruits, including carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, apricots, and mangoes.
