Beta-carotene is primarily known for aiding healthy vision, which can be at risk in people with PCOS-linked diabetes. But it also contributes to strong teeth and healthy skin and hair, as well as boosting immune and reproductive systems. The latter are both vulnerable to symptoms of PCOS.
When shopping for foods rich in vitamin A-packed beta-carotene, let color guide you. The best sources come in bright packages – orange and yellow fruits and vegetables, such as apricots, cantaloupes, carrots, mangoes, pumpkins, squash and sweet potatoes.
Another good source is dark green vegetables like broccoli, collard greens and spinach. As a rule, the deeper the color, the more beta-carotene a food contains.
