Vitamin "A" protects children from malaria
It helps the body clear out the malaria parasite more quickly.
The researchers say that Vitamin "A" may protect children against the mosquito-borne malaria parasite.
Scientists say vitamin "A" appeared to be more protective under certain circumstances, including when administered during the rainy season, as well as when given to older children.
The researchers say it is because vitamin A, which is known to boost immunity, and improve the ability to fight off infection, help the body clear out the malaria parasite more quickly.
