Vitamin A, also known as retinol, is essential for your organs and contributes to the immune system, eye health and growth. The highest food sources of vitamin A are dark leafy greens, tomatoes, milk, eggs and red bell peppers. However, taking a vitamin A supplement will fill any gaps in your vitamin A supply for optimal health.
What happens when you don’t have enough vitamin A?
• Poor vision
• Premature ageing skin
• Consistently catching colds
• Taking a long time to recover from illness
• Difficulty sleeping
• Low moods, including depression
• Hair loss
• Heart problems
Health benefits of vitamin A
Vitamin A is a key nutrient your body needs to work well and keep you feeling your best. Below are the top benefits of taking a vitamin A supplement:
Vitamin A naturally disintegrates dead skin cells and encourages cell turnover, which gives skin a fresh ‘renewed’ appearance. This is beneficial for combatting a dry, dull complexion, tackling acne and reducing signs of premature ageing.
Strong immune system
It’s crucial to get enough vitamin A to aid your immune system. This is because it encourages the body to create white blood cells, which defend your body against colds, diseases and general illnesses.
Supports vision in low-light
You know the saying, carrots help you see in the dark? Well, it’s not entirely a myth. Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, which aids your vision. In particular, your ability to see in low light levels. So, although carrots may not give you night vision, they certainly help your nighttime trips to the toilet.
Reduces the risk of certain cancers
Retinol (vitamin A) is a potent anti-oxidant and shields your body against oxidative stress. Free radicals cause oxidative stress by attacking your cells, causing premature ageing, hair loss and even some forms of cancer.
Contributes to healthy bones
You need vitamin A for growth and development, including your bones. If you are a fully grown adult, you may not think this is important, but your cells are continually renewing and developing. So, ensure you get a good amount of vitamin A to avoid brittle and weak bones.
