Dosage Range

Consumption of the recommended five or more servings of fruits and vegetables per day provides between 3 and 6 mg of beta-carotene. Supplemental intake of beta-carotene ranges from 3 to 30 mg/day, although medicinal doses to treat erythropoietic protoporphyria or prevent a reaction to sun in patients with polymorphous light eruption range from 30 to 300 mg/day (PDRHealth 2005). The dose

required to provide photoprotection is greater than 24 mg/day for more than 2 months (Sies&Stahl 2004).

To enhance absorption, supplementation should be taken with meals.
