An essential nutrient for the body, Vitamin A helps to keep the body fighting fit. Vitamin A strengthens the immune system to fight colds, flu and other infections, promotes healthy skin and healing, helps build teeth and bones, maintains healthy eyes and protects the lining of the digestive and urinary tract against infections.
Vitamin A is a fat soluble nutrient which means it is absorbed with fats in the intestine into the bloodstream and then stored in a fatty tissue. Vitamin A is stored in the liver and is absorbed in the body in the form of retinol which is found in the liver and in food sources including fish oils, egg yolks and dairy produce such as butter. Many fruits and vegetables also contain carotene which is also converted by the body as required into retinol.
To support the body in maintaining healthy levels of Vitamin A, it may be recommended by your health practitioner that you take a vitamin supplement. We offer a great range of supplement choices including stand alone Swanson Beta Carotene (Vitamin A) softgels available in quantities of 100, 250 and 300.
