Can the CellSentials cause my skin to turn yellow?
Hypercarotenemia is a benign temporary yellowing of the skin caused by consuming large amounts of beta-carotene. The amount necessary to cause this type of condition, regardless of the weight of the individual, far exceeds the amount contained in the daily dose of the CellSentials. The amount of beta-carotene in a daily dose of the Vita Antioxidant is similar to the amount of beta-carotene obtained from one small carrot. Eating one carrot per day won’t cause hypercarotenemia.
If, however, someone is regularly juicing vegetables or consuming large quantities of vegetables high in beta-carotene (in addition to taking the CellSentials), it may be possible to develop hypercarotenemia.
