Vitamins and minerals provide our body with essential nutrients and keep us in good health. (Read how to get essential vitamins from foods).

Vitamin A is also packed with beta-carotene and antioxidants — read how they prevent cancer. These also help in getting rid of harmful free radicals. Here are some of its sources.
