Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin which boosts immune function and helps maintain healthy eyes and skin. The Vitamin A group includes retinol, retinal, and provitamin A carotenoids. The most important of these is beta-carotene, which comes from vegetables and plants and is important for eyesight.

Most people get enough Vitamin A through their normal diet. It is found in meats and vegetables, however Vitamin A supplementation can be useful to support the eyes and skin, or your health practitioner may suggest a course of Vitamin A when the dietary intake is insufficient, or for a specific condition.

  • Having enough vitamin A will support your immune system, assist your eyes and skin to stay healthy, support overall growth and development and provide an anti-oxidant which assists metabolism.
  • Vitamin A should not be taken during pregnancy, or for women planning a pregnancy, as an excess can cause birth defects. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant and wish to take Vitamin A.
  • Did you know� the story that �eating your carrots will help you see in the dark� is due to the high level of Vitamin A in them!
