VITAMIN A



Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin and is otherwise known as retinol. The liver maintains Vitamin A concentrations and is stored here as well as the retina, kidneys, lungs and adrenal glands.

When the body is in need of Vitamin A, it is released into the blood via retinol binding protein.

If you are someone with a protein digestive problem, then you are at risk of a Vitamin A deficiency.

Vitamin A is vital for growth, development of bone, vision, reproduction, immunity cell growth and maintaining mucosal and epithelial surfaces.
