Beta Carotene: Beta-carotene is the precursor of Vitamin A and in the body it is converted in to Vitamin A which is required for a variety of physiological functions in the body especially maintaining the functioning of human eye. It helps in formation of pigment Rhodopsin during dark adaptation and promotes differentiation and maintains structural integrity of epithelia. Vitamin A helps in mucous production.

Zinc: It help is synthesis of more than 70 different enzymes. Zinc containing enzymes regulates metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. Zinc fastens wound healing; maintain normal growth rates, balance skin hydration and the senses of taste and smell. It assists normal growth and tissue repair. It boosts cell mediated immunity. It is poorly absorbed when given orally. Zinc is well distributed in tissues lik skeletal muscle, skin, bone, pancreas, kidney, liver, retina, prostate, RBC, and WBC. Zinc is mainly excreted through intestine and only 2% loss in the urine.

Selenium: It is a vital antioxidant, along with vitamin E, it helps protect the immune system and maintain healthy heart function. It is required by pancreas for proper functioning and tissue elasticity and has been shown to protect against radiation and toxic minerals. Raised cardiovascular disorders are associated with selenium-deficiency.

Manganese: It is essential for enzyme formation and functioning. Manganese is a trace mineral required in small amounts. It’s required for the normal functioning of neurons and many of our body’s enzyme production. Manganese is also required for bone growth, development and maintenance. When combined with other nutrients like calcium, zinc and copper, manganese supports bone mineral density essential feature for geriatric patients. Manganese is a part of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD), which is one of the most important antioxidants in the body as they protect by scavenging free radicals formed. This property of manganese helps in reducing inflammation.

Copper: It is the third most abundant essential trace mineral, and is required as cofactor for many proteins, iron utilization enhancer. Copper, along with amino and fatty acids as well as vitamins, are required for normal metabolic processes. It is well orally absorbed.
