Antioxidant effects

Beta-carotene can quench singlet oxygen, a reactive molecule that is generated, for instance in the skin by exposure to ultraviolet light and which can induce precancerous changes in cells. Singlet oxygen has the ability to trigger the generation of free radical chain reactions.
Beta-carotene may also have antioxidant properties that help neutralize free radicals, reactive and highly energized molecules which are formed through certain normal biochemical reactions (e.g. in the immune response, prostaglandin synthesis), or through exogenous sources such as air pollution or cigarette smoke. Free radicals can damage lipids in cell membranes as well as the genetic material in cells, and the resulting damage may lead to the development of cancer.
