We've all heard the adage that "vitamin A will help you see in the dark" as children. While this myth isn't totally accurate, vitamin A has other health benefits that go beyond vision. Vitamin A helps our immune system, skin, hair, bones, and the surface tissues that make up our interior organs. So, while the superpower portion of the statement may be a little exaggerated, mum was correct about vitamin A's benefits. Let's face it, moms are always correct. Without any further ado, let’s begin the narration of vitamin A.


Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is found in many foods. A fat-soluble vitamin dissolves easily in fats and oils, allowing it to be absorbed and stored in our fatty tissues and liver for later use (whenever we may need them). Vitamin A can be divided into two types: The first is retinol and retinyl esters, which are preformed vitamin A molecules. Animal products, such as dairy, liver, and fish, are the only sources of this kind. Provitamin A carotenoids are the second type. These can be found in abundance in many of our favourite plant foods (fruits and vegetables!). For example, mango, carrot, spinach, broccoli, etc.

Beta-carotene, found primarily in yellow, orange, and red fruits and vegetables, is the most frequent form; your body converts beta-carotene to vitamin A naturally.

Retinal is the most active form of vitamin A, and it is the main cause of vitamin A's contribution to eye health (but more on that later!). This micronutrient also has antioxidant capabilities, which help to prevent heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Vitamin A is a game-changer for keeping your skin and hair happy and healthy in general.


Vitamin A promotes the production of sebum, an oil that keeps the skin and hair wet and prevents them from drying out. It also aids in the generation of new skin cells, which helps to reduce ageing, minimise acne scars, and treat skin problems like acne and psoriasis. It can benefit the skin through a nutrient-dense diet or a topical cream.
