Betavit AFR 30 Softgel Capsules
Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body. When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage. Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers" and hence prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals. Antioxidants may also enhance immune defense. Various factors contribute to oxidative damage such as: smoking, alcohol, sunlight exposure, preservatives, certain medicines and excessive exercise. Many vitamins and minerals act as antioxidants in their own right. Betavit AFR® is scientifically formulated with multivitamins, minerals and micronutrients with added antioxidants beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and selenium. Just one capsule a day may be the best way to provide the body with the most complete protection against free radical damage. * RDA not established. Beta-carotene: Can be converted into vitamin A (retinol) if the body needs more vitamin A. Is not converted to vitamin A if the body has sufficient vitamin A, when it then acts as an antioxidant which protects cells from damage caused by harmful free radicals. Vitamin C: Strengthens the immune system, which is the body's natural resistance against colds, flu, chest infections, etc. Also supports the circulatory system and helps maintain healthy blood vessels. Vitamin E: Functions as a tissue antioxidant, thereby keeping cells healthy. Protects unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin A against oxidation in the body. Supports cardiovascular health. Protects red blood cells. Vitamin B1: Is required for the release of energy from glucose. Maintains healthy nerve function. Vitamin B2: Is necessary for cell respiration and growth. Is important for good muscle tone. Is involved in metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Is necessary for excellent vision, skin, nails and hair.
