Fruit components: why they are good for you

Beta-carotene:

May play a significant role in reducing the effects of certain illnesses (such as heart disease, decreased immune function, cataracts, and forms of cancer) and, perhaps even prevent them. Beta-carotene is a provitamin A compound. Foods or supplements containing beta-carotene are converted to vitamin A for the maintenance of healthy skin, good vision, and a robust immune system. Beta-carotene is also a powerful antioxidant, and has been shown to help guard against cancer and heart disease.

Folic acid:

It is primarily suggested by doctors and nutritionists for those who are pregnant or could become pregnant. Folic acid has been found to greatly reduce the risks of having children born with certain birth defects, including neural tube defects, cleft palate and cleft lip and spina bifida. There have also been studies that show people suffering from depression are often deficient in folic acid. It’s thought that folic acid being able to reduce levels of homecysteine in your blood can help prevent depression. Also folic acid is responsible for aleviating some effects of Alzheimer, anemia, and multiple sclerosis!

Vitamin B complex:

They make metabolism stronger, promote cell growth, maintain healthy skin and muscle tone and enhance immune and nervous system function. Besides that, these vitamins reduce stress and depression. Additionally, vitamin B complex can prevent heart desieses, birth defects, broken bones from osteoporosis, and stroke!
