Vitamin a ? the glow-in-the-dark vitamin - supplements


The antediluvian Egyptians had a cure for "night blindness". They fed the long-suffering lots and lots of liver. Perchance they belief they were comforting the Gods of sight. In 1930, the first fat-soluble vitamin was naked - vitamin A - which, it turns out, does actually calm the Gods of sight.

Vitamin A is best known for civilizing eyesight, especially at night, which is one of two reasons we call it the glow-in-the-dark vitamin. But the eyes are not the only part of your body obliged for your generous drinking of vitamin A.

Your skin also benefits. And your hair. And mucous membranes. And nails. In fact, more or less any apparent lining your body can find.

Your immune coordination benefits, too, generous you added funds to ward off infections. Bones and teeth are strengthened with appropriate amounts of vitamin A, and even the risk of some cancers can be bargain with vitamin A.

And there are more complete and so-called benefits.

The other basis we call Vitamin A the glow-in-the-dark vitamin is since it is best known as the brainy carroty color in so many foods we enjoy. Like pumpkins, pumpkin pie and my favorite: pumpkin cheesecake ( see my recipe at http://www. thehappyguy. com/pumpkin-cheesecake-recipe. html ). And, of course, carrots, squash, peaches, apricots, cantaloupe, mangoes, sweet potatoes and the rest of the orange-spangled veggie gang.

But again, vitamin A is much more than meets the eye, as it is not essentially vitamin A that turns the fruit and vegetables orange, but a forerunner to vitamin A called beta carotene. Beta carotene does not befall vitamin A until your body processes it.

And vitamin A is just as likely, if not more so, to come from protein sources such as most dairy products, egg yolks and some fish. And the queen of all vitamin A sources is liver, that antiquated Egyptian God of sight. Calves liver. Chicken liver. Pork liver. Any liver you can sink your teeth into.

The vitamin A in protein sources is real vitamin A, no doling out required.

Other great sources of vitamin A are dark green vegetables, such as Swiss chard, broccoli, spinach and beet greens.

As critical as it is to glow with vitamin A, don't glow too brightly. An overeat can be destructive to bones and skin, causing weakness and brittleness, even foremost to tiredness and vomiting.

It is advisable not to take a vitamin A supplement but under the supervision of a physician. In most cases, it is much develop to take a liquid multivitamin such as Critical Nectar in optional daily doses. There is very hardly attempt of in receipt of an overdo that way.

Also, amplify your intake of beta carotene sources to avoid an overdose. While your body absorbs all the vitamin A it takes in directly, it converts only the beta carotene it needs (talk about customization!).

So get glowing and get the vitamin A you need.
