Beta-carotene is a pigment and a member of the carotenoid family, which is commonly found in plants such as carrots, sweet potatoes, and spinach. Beta-carotene is a precursor to vitamin A and is often used as a dietary supplement due to its potential health benefits, such as promoting healthy vision, supporting immune system function, and reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases.

Beta-carotene is generally considered safe for consumption, and it is a common ingredient in many dietary supplements. However, excessive intake of beta-carotene supplements may cause the skin to turn yellow-orange in color, a condition known as carotenemia.
