Hard-to-Find Multicarotenes
 October 10, 2007
"It is important to take a carotene mixture, alpha, beta, and gamma, but it is almost impossible to find a multi-carotene supplement. Vitacost makes it easy to order at a reasonable cost! The only thing that would make the product perfect is if it were standarized (which is the only reason I gave it a 3 rating for quality)."
