One vitamin that should never be overlooked is vitamin A. Vitamin A is an important nutrient to take for overall health, as it supports many functions in the body.* Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin, but does not have to be consumed in high doses on a daily basis, because it can be stored in the liver.
There are two forms of vitamin A - Retinol (preformed Vitamin A) and Beta-Carotene (Retinoids).Retinol is found in fish oils, egg yolk, liver, milk, and margarine. Beta-carotene is found in deep-yellow and deep-green leafy vegetables. Some of the important functions vitamin A can support include:
Healthy tooth and bone development*
Reproductive system maintenance*
Immune system maintenance*
