BUENA PARK, Calif.--In a recent clinical study, it was found that beta carotene mayreduce the level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL), also known as "badcholesterol." Two hundred people were tested before and after receiving 4.5 mg ofbeta carotene for 45 days. Participants were divided into four groups: smokers, diabetics,obese people and a control "healthy" group.
In the high-risk groups, supplementation lowered LDL levels by approximately 20percent. These results, sponsored by Nutrilite, have been submitted for publication. Foradditional information, visit www.nutrilite.com.
