Beta Carotene helps your body produce the miracle ‘glue’ Collagen!
Beta Carotene (provitamin A) is a carotenoid and is converted to active vitamin A by the body. This vitamin is known to help the body produce collagen, and can also encourage the strength of your cartilage (which is required to keep your pelvic organs and other structures in the pelvic area in position) and keep mucous membranes healthy. We need vitamin A for good vision and eye health, for a strong immune system, and for healthy skin and mucous membranes. Whilst big doses of vitamin A can be toxic your body only converts as much vitamin A from beta-carotene as it needs. That means beta-carotene is considered a safe source of vitamin A. Beta-carotene is a type of vitamin A that is known to help your body produce collagen, and it also helps to keep cartilage strong, so it is essential for a healthy and supportive set of pelvic floor muscles.
Do you suffer with Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)? Boost with Beta Carotene to restore the balance!
Bacterial Vaginosis is characterised by the tell-tale fishy odour smell which indicates that’s your vaginal acid levels or vaginal pH, is out of balance. When vaginal pH levels become too acidic this leaves you susceptible bacterial vaginosis. If you have lower circulating levels of phytonutrients in your bloodstream like vitamin C and beta carotene you are more likely to get Bacterial Vaginosis. So supplementing with this vital nutrient will help to keep the balance just right – optimum pelvic health remember is our goal!
If I eat a healthy diet why would my pelvic floor problems benefit from a Beta Carotene supplement?
We might be living longer, but results show that we are not actually getting a ‘healthier life expectancy’. What’s the point in that? We want a full and active life and a healthy pelvic floor is pivotal to our quality of life. When our pelvic floor goes wrong it affects all aspects of lives. You might be eating what you think is a healthy diet, but statistics show that with the proliferation of processed foods, intensive farming and GMO (Genetically modified Foods) our foodstuffs are less nutrient dense than ever before. Couple that with our busy lives balancing stress, pollution and ageing and you are looking pelvic floor problems head on.
Researching clinical papers and harvesting the information from food trials and medical research we have crafted a unique blend of vitamins and minerals designed to supplement for optimum pelvic floor health and the Kegel8 Beta Carotene supplement is one of our favourites.
"Overactive bladder symptoms, heavy periods, Bacterial Vaginosis and vaginal dryness are clinically proven to be helped by supplementing with Beta Carotene (provitamin A)."

Kegel8 recommends you consider supplementing with Beta Carotene for following reasons:
Consider Beta Carotene if you have Overactive Bladder (OAB) Urge Incontinence (UI) and Frequency ✔
- Findings from a study in Boston, USA suggest that for some women, overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms of frequency and urgency could possibly be ameliorated by modifying high-dose supplements of vitamin C and—among smokers—β-carotene. 
Consider Beta Carotene for Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) Cystitis, ureteritis treatment, and urethritis ✔
- Recurrent lower urinary tract infections can be reduced by supplementing with Beta Carotene (a source of Vitamin A). 
- Beta-carotene a powerful antioxidant and is found in high concentrations in the ovaries. However, if there is a beta carotene deficiency the ovaries will be less likely to be able to fight off infection. Studies show that adequate levels of beta-carotene can help to prevent excess cell damage. Beta-carotene is also vital for boosting immune function* and for the normal growth of the type of mucosal membranes especially in the vagina. Healthy mucosal membranes will reduce the risk of inflammation of the bladder, ureter (tubes running from kidneys to bladder) or urethra (tube running from bladder out) as well as urinary tract infection. 
Consider Beta Carotene if you have Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) & pelvic inflammatory disease ✔
- Beta Carotene could help prevent Bacterial Vaginosis (BV). Leaving bacterial vaginosis untreated can lead to complications such pelvic inflammatory disease. Bacterial Vaginosis is not sexually transmitted and is caused by a bacterial imbalance. If your body is deficient in Vitamin C and beta-carotene, pathogenic bacteria can cause an infection in your vagina. 
Consider Beta Carotene to treat Heavy Menstrual Periods and Ovarian Cancer ✔
- Heavy Periods? Studies show that vitamin A (Beta-Carotene) helps prevent Menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding). Testing the blood levels of 71 women suffering with excessive bleeding, researchers found that all the women had Vitamin A deficiency. After taking vitamin A supplements of Beta Carotene for just two weeks, 90 percent of them returned to normal menstruation levels. Research studies have also found carotenoids such as beta carotene, as well as vitamin A, to be useful in treating conditions related to oestrogen dominance, including ovarian cancer, heavy menstrual bleeding, and benign breast disease. A study from the International Journal of Cancer found that high carotenoid intake decreased a woman’s risk for ovarian cancer. In fact, beta-carotene rich carrots were among the foods most strongly associated with decreased risk. 
Consider Beta Carotene (Vitamin A) for Vaginal Dryness ✔
- Vaginal dryness is a common problem for women during and after menopause, symptoms of vaginal dryness include itching and stinging around the vaginal opening and in the lower third of the vagina. Vaginal dryness also makes intercourse uncomfortable. to relieve this condition, use lubricant and nourish the body with a variety of vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B12 and essential fatty acids. 
- Intakes of Vitamins and Minerals In Relation To Incontinence
- Adjuvant effect of Vitamin A on Urinary Tract infections During the 6 month follow up period the infected rate of the vitamin A (Beta carotene) supplemented group reduced from 3.58 - 0.75 per 6 months.
- Effects of carotenoids on immune function Since the immune system plays a major role in cancer prevention, it has been suggested that beta carotene may enhance immune cell function. Several human trials, using dietary beta-carotene supplementation with a wide range of intakes, have been undertaken to address this hypothesis. The general conclusion of these studies is that this compound can enhance cell mediated immune responses particularly in the elderly.
- Preventing Bacterial Vaginosis With Diet Poor nutrition has been added to the list of risk factors for bacterial vaginosis. Researchers suggest that high fat intake, particularly saturated fat may increase vaginal pH, thereby increasing the risk of bacterial vaginosis.
- Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A) | Dr. Susan's Healing & Healthy Living Studies have also determined that vitamin A (beta Carotene) helps prevent heavy menstrual bleeding.
- Mayo Clinic. Vaginal Atrophy Changes in the acid balance of your vagina makes vaginal infections (vaginitis) more likely.
