The benefits of using retional & vitamin A

Vitamin A helps to oxidize free radicals that damage your body and skin. Not only does it help reduce fine lines, reduce and lighten age spots, and help to rejuvenate skin, it is important for your body as well. Deficiencies in Vitamin A can lead to fatigue, dry hair, cracked and dry nails, and acne. Vitamin A helps boost bone health, support your immune system, oxidize free radicals that can lead to cancer, support reproductive health in both men and women and help with night blindness.

 

Eating Healthy is one of the first and most important areas for skin and overall health.

Foods rich in Vitamin A include:

Liver, Carrots, Cod, Kale, Sweet potatoes, Spinach, Salmon, Mackerel, Trout, Collard Greens, Winter Squash, Mango, Eggs and Cantaloupe to name just a few.

Vitamin A is fat soluble so you do not want to overdue supplementing with Vitamin A. It is better to get your Vitamin A from a healthy diet. Vitamin A is also better absorbed when eaten with fat. Most meat sources also have fat. But fruits and veggie sources, add a dash of olive oil to your greens or salad to get better absorption.
