Vitamin A and its effects
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is stored in the liver. It is necessary for the production of visual pigment in the retina of the eye and helps protect against night blindness. Vitamin A is also important for the growth and development of cells, tissues and organs. It strengthens the immune system and helps protect against infections. Vitamin A is found in dairy products, eggs, dark leafy greens, and orange and yellow fruits. Vitamin A deficiency can lead to dry eyes, night blindness, poor growth and an increased risk of infection. Vitamin A supplementation is often recommended for infants, children and pregnant women.
