Combination of well-researched carotenoids with botanicals, minerals and vitamin E.

Vitamin E has a role in the protection of cells from oxidative stress. This ‘oxidative stress’ appears to be a major factor in many human diseases.

Zinc is a mineral essential to many body processes including the maintenance of normal cognitive function, vision, fertility and reproduction, hair, skin and nails and the immune system. Zinc also contributes to the normal metabolism of fatty acids and macronutrients.

Chromium contributes to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.
