This study evaluated whether simultaneous supplementation of sodium cholate and beta-carotene to a diet enhanced the accumulation of beta-carotene in mice. For 2 wk, male ICR mice were fed either a basal diet or a diet containing Dunaliella-bardawil beta-carotene 50 mg/100g that was or was not supplemented with sodium cholate (0.25 g/100 g). The concentrations of beta-carotene in liver and plasma were approximately 5 and 10 times higher, respectively. In the mice fed the beta-carotene diet with… CONTINUE READING
