Vitamin A

Daily Values – 5000 IU per day. Vitamin A is an ANTI-OXIDANT that is needed to maintain healthy skin and mucous membranes, helps prevent night blindness, promotes fetal growth and development, and is required for the functioning of a healthy immune system. It is also shown to prevent some types of cancer especially when consumed in the form of beta-carotene found in vegetable and fruits. Sweet potatoes and spinach as well as liver and cod liver oil are among the many sources. Caution! Since Vitamin A is fat soluble and is stored by the liver, toxicity is a possibility usually in cases of consuming high doses of Vitamin A Supplements.
