Vitamin A 

Foods with Vitamin A

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.

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.
