High Alpha-Carotene Levels Associated With Longer Life

information from the Archives of Internal Medicine

High blood levels of the antioxidant alpha-carotene appear to be associated with a reduced risk of dying over a 14-year period: Archives of Internal Medicine.

Higher alpha-carotene concentration also appeared to be associated with lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease or cancer individually, and of all other causes.

Alpha-carotene is chemically similar to beta-carotene but may be more effective at inhibiting the growth of cancer cells in the brain, liver and skin.
