Benefits of Vitamin A
• Promotes Lung Health
Vitamin A plays an important role in the respiratory epithelium and the lungs. Research has found that during moderate vitamin A deficiency, the risk of respiratory tract diseases is increased, and reoccurring respiratory infections may be influenced by vitamin A supplementation. Vitamin A also has antioxidant properties which promote protection in the body from free radicals. Oxidative stress is believed to play a major role in the pathogenesis of airway obstruction.
Vitamin A is known as an anti-inflammatory vitamin and plays a critical role in supporting immune function. It is involved in the development of the immune system and plays regulatory roles in cellular immune responses and humoral immune processes. Vitamin A is also involved in the production and function of white blood cells. Therefore, adequate levels of vitamin A may promote a speedy recovery when dealing with some illnesses. Its antioxidant properties promote the protection of cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which may play a role in several diseases.
• Promotes Eye and Vision Health
Vitamin A is essential to promote good vision and eye health. It is a major component of rhodopsin, a protein that absorbs light in the retinal receptors. Rhodopsin helps support vision during nighttime and adequate levels may support reduced risk of night blindness. Vitamin A also supports a clear cornea, which is the protective outer layer of the eye. Some studies suggest diets high in vitamin A may promote a reduced risk of certain eye diseases and complications.
• Promotes Hair, Skin, and Nail Health
The antioxidant properties of vitamin A support healthy skin by preventing free radicals from causing cell damage. This may also promote a reduced risk of signs of aging in the skin. Vitamin A has also been used to promote reduced inflammation associated with certain inflammatory skin conditions. Its role in healthy cell production supports healthy hair and nails. Additionally, it assists skin glands to produce sebum, which moisturizes the scalp.
