Additionally, it has antioxidant properties which helps to counteract free radicals (Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons and can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules) present in the body that can be detrimental to cell health.

Tissue maintenance – Vitamin A also helps the body to support the health of tissues in many sensitive areas of the body. Vitamin A is vital for pregnant women, as it assists in tissue repair.

 

Vitamin C

Antioxidant – Its antioxidant properties defend cells from mutation and damage. It helps to maintain the immune system, which is the body’s first line of defense against cancer and all other diseases.

Helps prevent cataracts – Cataracts are the clouding of the lens of the eye eventually making it completely opaque, causing blindness. This is problem more commonly found in older adults. Vitamin C is necessary to counteract all the free radicals that form on the eye as a result of direct exposure to sunlight which can develop into cataracts.

Helps to prevent heart disease – Vitamin C prevents free radicals from damaging artery walls, which could lead to plaque formation. This nutrient also keeps cholesterol in the bloodstream from oxidizing, another early step in the progression towards heart disease and stroke.

Decrease asthmatic symptoms – A noticeable decrease in asthmatic symptoms can achieved by taking 1,000 to 2,000 mg per day. This also can decrease the production of histamine, which contributes to inflammation.
