Beta-cryptoxanthin is an antioxidant contained within many plant foods that can benefit health in various ways. Read on to find out how beta-cryptoxanthin can benefit your body!
Pulmonary Health
Beta-cryptoxanthin has been shown to reduce lung cancer risk by 24 percent. Various juices may increase beta-cryptoxanthin levels and reduce lung tumor development, improve dilation, and reduce inflammation.
