  • Beta Carotene – The main reason you need beta carotene is because it converts to Vitamin A, which is actually what is good for your eyes. Vitamin A not only protects your eyes but also allows them to work properly. Having enough Vitamin A in your diet will help prevent eye diseases, such as nearsightedness, night blindness, and even glaucoma.
  • Vitamin C – Vitamin C is an all-around antioxidant. And remember: ANTIOXIDANT = ANTI-AGING. So this will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and crows feet and even help prevent cataracts, corneal ulcers, and macular degeneration.
  • Vitamin E – Vitamin E and Vitamin C basically go hand in hand. Also good for your skin as it helps keep healthy tissue strong.
  • Copper – This also helps prevent macular degeneration.
