Is a fat-soluble vitamin found as either preformed vitamin A or pro-vitamin A carotenoids in the diet, plays an important role in the growth and development of several systems in the body. According to the Office of Dietary Supplements, preformed vitamin A commonly comes from animal sources, especially the liver.
The primary function of vitamin A is to support vision, especially in dim lighting, by creating pigments that are needed to help keep the retina of the eye healthy. It also helps produce the protein rhodopsin, which absorbs light in the retina. In addition, vitamin A helps support the growth and development of the cornea and other membranes of the eye.
Bones, Skin and Immune Function
Although vitamin A’s main function involves the eyes and vision, it also plays important roles in the development of bones, including the teeth. In addition, vitamin A aids immune function and helps provide a barrier against infections of the skin, lungs and mouth. Some studies also suggest there may be a link between vitamin A consumption and a decreased risk of the development of some cancers.
