The Singlet Oxygen 

Singlet Oxygen

O2 is the oxygen we breathe. A singlet oxygen is similar to the oxygen we breathe but there is one little, teeny, tiny difference… a single oxygen has an extra electron (like having $0.99 in change).

This free radical is involved in joint diseases (like arthritis) and eye diseases.Carotenoids, such as Vitamin A and lycopene, can tame the single oxygen and so can Vitamin E.
