Facts About Vitamin A ... 
...and the role organic vitamin A has within the body.

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin, which can be destroyed by light and oxygen. 

Normal cooking temperatures will not destroy vitamin A significantly, however cooking in iron or copper pans will lead to more loss of this vitamin.

There are two types of Vitamin A.  The first (pro vitamin A) is also known as carotene and can be found in yellow, orange and green vegetables and fruits and is converted to Vitamin A by the body.

In plants, Vitamin A is found mainly in the form of beta-carotene.  Beta-carotene is converted to Vitamin A in a process, which ensures that Vitamin A levels do not become excessive.  Therefore beta-carotene is generally considered non-toxic.

The second type of Vitamin A is known as retinol.   This is known as a pre-formed A and can be found in foods of animal origin.

Vitamin A is essential for vision, developmental growth, cellular differentiation and proliferation, reproduction and in the immune system.

And, there are many food sources that these two forms of vitamin A can be found in.  For the Pro Vitamin A, some of the best sources are; beet greens, pumpkin, mangoes, olives, carrots, spinach and water melon.

With pre-formed vitamin A some of the best food sources are; egg yolks, liver, cheese, and fish liver oils.

Vitamin A is also required by the body for many reasons..

One important role vitamin A has, is in helping to support the immune system, which helps fight against infections and resiliance to anaemia, protection against pollution and respiratory system health.

Vitamin A and vision - this vitamin can help the formation of visual purple for night vision, protection against oxidisation and free radical activity within the body and protection against pollution and UV radiation.

Other problems if you do not get enough Vitamin A could be poor nails, poor hair or poor skin.

There are many other nutrients that are required alongside Vitamin A.  These important co-nutrients are Vitamin D, selenium, inositol, Vitamin B complex, manganese, Vitamin F, calcium, Vitamin C, zinc, Vitamin E and phosphorus.

Unfortunately, if you smoke, drink alcohol, are on certain drugs such as aspirin or have a diet extremely high in protein, then your requirements for Vitamin A would need to be increased.
