  • PABA - Natural sources of PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid) include kidney, liver, whole grains, wheat germ, brown rice, and bran. The ultraviolet light-absorbing properties of PABA have led to its extensive use as a sunscreen in suntan oils and lotions.

  • Vitamin E - Also known as alpha-tocopherol, vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin that is readily available in nuts, whole grains and vegetable and fish oils. Consumed in the correct amounts, vitamin E plays a crucial role in normal neurologic and immune system functions. While it has been reported to possess certain aphrodisiac properties, its role as an antioxidant may be more important to assist the body in cancer prevention.

  • Folic Acid - Folic Acid (a water-soluble B vitamin) is abundant in green leafy vegetables and liver and has been demonstrated to protect against cervical dysplasia--precancerous changes in cells of the uterine cervix. This vitamin may protect against heart disease, nerve damage, and neural-tube defects.

  • Thiamine - This water-soluble biochemical was the first vitamin to be discovered and is abundant in wheat and soybeans. Thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency causes a disease termed "beriberi", although when consumed in correct doses, thiamine may benefit heart disease, diabetes, and mental ability.
