Vitamin A and Its Function on Our Bodies

Vitamin A and Its Function on Our Bodies

Carrots are said to help with one’s vision and promote sight. That is because of one micronutrient – vitamin A. However, that is not all the benefits vitamin A has for our bodies. And as a pharmacy, we will talk about what vitamin A has to offer for our health.

Naturally occurring in different foods, vitamin A is essential for several bodily processes. These include the following:

  • It maintains the health of surface tissues such as those of the skin and linings of the eyes, inner ear, bladder, etc.
  • It helps keep the immune system healthy.
  • It promotes vision, as well as development and reproduction.
  • It may help to lower risk for some cancers, such as lung and cervical cancers, among others.

Those are just some of the ways our bodies can benefit from vitamin A.  

And while we may be tempted to buy vitamin A supplements from a low-cost pharmacy to gain the benefits, taking in large amounts of the micronutrient can still have its repercussions. That is why we should consult with our physician before doing so.
