Uses For Vitamin A
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin. It may help promote growth and bone development, reproductive function, cell growth, immune function, and the integrity of mucosal and epithelial surfaces.*
Vitamin A is derived from cod liver oil. Each softgel also contains refined soybean oil to complete capsule volume.
Vitamins attempt to provide your body with nutritional support. There are two main types of vitamins: water-soluble and fat-soluble. Fat-soluble vitamins can be retained by your body for extended periods of time‚ while water-soluble vitamins can't. Vitamin A is a type of fat-soluble vitamin‚ found in foods such as cheese‚ oily fish‚ milk‚ eggs‚ and liver.*
This nutrient attempts to help support several functions: it strengthens your immune system‚ helps you see more clearly in low light‚ and keeps your skin healthy. All the vitamin A you need can be obtained from a healthy diet. A poor diet can cause low levels of vitamin A‚ which is a condition called vitamin A deficiency. Other risk factors for developing vitamin A deficiency include following a vegan diet‚ being diagnosed with cystic fibrosis or inflammatory bowel disease‚ consuming excessive amounts of alcohol‚ and having low iron levels (iron deficiency). A mild vitamin A deficiency often causes no symptoms. However‚ in its most severe form‚ vitamin A deficiency can result in night blindness‚ which is an inability to see in the dark‚ even when sufficient light is present. It can also cause poor immune functioning‚ making you more prone to suffer from minor illnesses. Pure Encapsulations’ Vitamin A 10‚000 IU may help you avoid these problems.*
