4 little-known benefits of vitamin A

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is mainly stored in the liver. It exists in two forms: retinol and carotenoids.

The first, retinol, is present only in foods from animal sources. It is the only form of vitamin A that is bioavailable (available to the body).

Carotenoids, the second type of vitamin A, are found only in plant foods. There are over 600 different types of carotenoids, but only the provitamin A type carotenoids are beneficial to health, once converted to retinol.

Today, we present 4 of its many benefits!

The benefits of vitamin A

1. It helps to maintain and strengthen the visual system

Vitamin A (retinol) improves vision by allowing the eyes to adapt to changes in light.

It also reduces the risk of eye disorders. Most of these disorders affect the elderly; however, a deficiency in vitamin A can cause the appearance of these disorders even in adulthood. Night blindness, glaucoma and cataracts are some of the eye problems that vitamin A helps to prevent.

2. It supports the body's immunity

Vitamin A helps regulate the genes involved in the immune response. This process helps protect the body from infection and disease.

3. It helps to fight against inflammations

Vitamin A has antioxidant properties that neutralize free radicals in the body that cause tissue and cell damage, which helps to reduce inflammation, the source of all disease.

4. It stimulates and regenerates the epidermal cells

Vitamin A is necessary in the healing and regeneration process of the skin. It also helps to reduce the signs of aging by increasing collagen production and reducing the risk of acne.

Sources of vitamin A

Food sources of retinol are butter, cod liver oil, fatty fish, egg yolks and whole milk. Sources of carotenoids are dark green leafy vegetables, peppers, sweet potatoes, broccoli, kale, parsley and carrots.

If you wish to supplement your dietary intake of vitamin A, don't hesitate to start a course of our Multivitamin which contains 800 µg of vitamin A, i.e. 100% of the Reference Intake!
