Vitamin A Info

Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin and is not synthesised by the body, so must be obtained from dietary sources. Retinol is the preformed vitamin A in animal foods, while plant foods provide the provitamin A carotenoids, the precursors that are converted in the body to vitamin A.

Vitamin A is essential for eye health and optimal vision, and deficiency causes reduced night vision and ultimately blindness and death. Other important functions of Vitamin A are in bone growth, tissue healing, immune function and mucous membrane health.

Vitamin A Benefits

Vitamin A helps maintain healthy mucous membranes, the linings of the mouth, digestive tract, respiratory system and genitourinary tract. Vitamin A reduces susceptibility to infectious diseases and allergic or inflammatory conditions affecting the mucous membranes. Colds, flu, viral infections, sinusitis and hayfever, asthma, rhinitis, eye and ear infections, UTIs, vaginitis, thrush measles, chicken pox, AIDS and pneumonia are all more common when vitamin A is deficient. It is vital for good immune function and can beneficially treat many types of skin disorder.

Vitamin A Side Effects

During pregnancy the betacarotene precursor to vitamin A is the safe form of supplement. High doses over a long term can be toxic. Caution in cases of liver damage, cirrhosis or hepatitis.

  • Awesome!

    star

    Very good product. First time trying Vitamin A on its own, so I gave this a try. Works a charm, has done wonders for my face (annoying scars and mild acne) which is now a lot smoother than it was before, and my nails are stronger. On a different tangent, I find the shape very entertaining and I enjoy taking them. But that's just me.
