  • Tomatoes (and tomato products) account for 93% of lycopene intake among younger women and 89% among older.
  • Yellow/Orange Carotenoid: Alpha-carotene
    • Carrots account for 76% of alpha-carotene intake among younger women and 73% among older.
  • Yellow/Orange Carotenoid: Beta-carotene
    • Carrots account for 33% of beta-carotene intake among younger women and 30% among older.
  • Yellow/Orange Carotenoid: Beta-cryptoxanthin
    • Oranges (and orange juice) account for 61% of beta-cryptoxanthin intake among younger women and 60% among older.

  • Powering Up Produce

    Choosing to increase the amount of the fruit and vegetables richest in carotenoids is important for long-term preventative health among women. While foods like spinach, tomatoes and carrots are certainly part of a healthy diet, there are opportunities for women to choose a wider variety of produce. For example, while carrots are among the top food sources of alpha and beta-carotenes, cooked pumpkin is also a concentrated food source of not only those carotenes, but of beta-cryptoxanthin.  However, based on current data analysis, cooked pumpkin accounts for less than 3% of total intake of these carotenoids among American women.  

    "It's concerning that so many American women lack a variety of carotenoid-rich foods in their regular diets," says Amy Hendel, Nutrilite's Phytonutrient Coach. "By selecting the most carotenoid-rich produce choices, women can purposefully increase their carotenoid and phytonutrient intakes which can impact health significantly as they age."

    Hendel, a registered physician assistant and health/wellness expert, offers these easy substitutions to "power up" your plate and add new flavors to your meal plan:
