Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin whose main compound is retinol, which is strongly linked to eye health.* Vitamin A is readily available in meat, fish, poultry, and dairy products. Many fruits and vegetables contain beta carotene, alpha-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin, all of which are converted into provitamin A in the body. Sweet potato, carrots, spinach, and apricots are particularly good sources of vitamin A.
Vitamin A plays a vital role in health and growth. It is essential for vision, healthy skin and hair, and boosting the immune system as well as helping to maintain fertility and fetal development.*
A healthy diet usually provides a good amount of vitamin A, but some people may need to supplement it.
Inadequate bile production and chronic exposure to cigarette smoke and/or alcohol can affect the absorption of vitamin A.
Vitamin A is included in most multivitamins and is also available as a stand-alone supplement. It is a fat-soluble vitamin that is stored in the body. This means that taking too much can lead to high amounts of vitamin A in the body.
