Betacarotene + Vitamin C + Vitamin E

The combination of Betacarotene, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E belongs to the class of drugs known as antioxidants. Betacarotene is a precursor of vitamin A and functions as a potent antioxidant. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin with antioxidant properties. Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) is a fat-soluble vitamin and also acts as an antioxidant.


The combination is indicated as a dietary supplement to support overall health and wellbeing. It is used to supplement dietary intake of antioxidants and vitamins.


The specific dosage and administration instructions may vary depending on various factors such as age, sex, and individual needs. It is important to follow the instructions provided by a healthcare professional or the product label. The combination is typically taken orally as directed, with or without food.

  • Gastrointestinal disturbances (such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea) may occur in sensitive individuals or with high doses.
  • Allergic reactions (rash, itching, swelling) to any of the ingredients may occur in rare cases.


  • Medical conditions: Individuals with pre-existing medical conditions, such as kidney stones, iron overload disorders, or glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency, should exercise caution and consult with a healthcare professional before using the combination.
  • Interactions: The combination may interact with certain medications or other supplements. It is important to inform the healthcare professional about all medications, supplements, or herbal products being taken.
