GLOSSARY
VITAMIN A

Vitamin A

 

How does it work?

Vitamin A is an essential fat-soluble vitamin required for many functions such as antioxidant activity, growth and development, immune function, maintenance of epithelial surfaces, vision and eye health and cancer prevention.Research has shown vitamin A can assist in reducing the severity of childhood infections such as measles and infectious diarrhoea as well as reducing adult infections of the urinary tract and lower respiratory tract.2 Due to its role in epithelial health, vitamin A has been effective in improving skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, skin cancers and UV-induced skin damage and photo-aging.3 Vitamin A is a component of the light-sensitive pigment rhodopsin ,found in the retina, and deficiency can lead to night-blindness  and vision disturbances.4 Therefore supplementation of vitamin A has shown improvement of this condition as well as the maintenence of vision.5

What results can be expected?

Vitamin A is used to treat and prevent deficiency states as well as assisting in the maintenance of vision and eye health, reducing the severity of infections, improving skin disorders and helping prevent certain cancers.6
