Beta-carotene is an anti-oxidant found in rich-colored fruits and vegetables such as oranges, beets, carrots and kale. Our bodies convert beta-carotene into vitamin A, an essential vitamin which gives us good eye health, super healthy skin, boosts our immune system, and protects us from free radicals, all of which lower our risks for disease. Beta-carotene in a supplement, such as multi-vitamins, can be toxic when consumed in high doses. Smokers and ex-smokers have a higher risk of lung cancer when taking beta-carotene supplements and some drugs have a bad interaction with these supplements. Beta-carotene in its natural form do not cause any risk to our health. You can never overdose on beta-carotene when eating it in fruits and vegetables.
