Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that’s important for keeping the immune system strong and healthy and for supporting the health of the skin that lines certain parts of the body, such as the inside of the nose. Also known as retinol, vitamin A is also essential for good eyesight, particularly at night.
Natural food sources of vitamin A include liver and liver products such as pâté, dairy products, eggs and oily fish. (Avoid eating liver and liver products more than once a week, especially if you’re pregnant, as you could risk eating too much vitamin A.)
Orange, yellow and red fruits and vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, peppers, mango, papaya and apricots are an important source of beta-carotene which the body turns into vitamin A.
