Has anyone tried beta carotene? My eye doctor recently recommended it (right after he had a close look at my face!) He suggested anywhere between 25,000 to 50,000 iu a day. I've started with the lower amount only today, and will let you all know how things go after a month or two.

Hi Danusia,

Now you tried beta carotene for more than two monthes, what do you think about it?

Did you get an improvement on your eyes or your skin?

Best wishes,
Luciana

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to try the beta carotene for as long as I would have liked. I got an allergic rash within days of starting on it, and although I can't be sure that the two were related, I stopped using it and didn't try again. I've had a very eventful spring with lots of health problems in my family, so I just neglected to give it another shot.
