Vitamin A For Body

Benefits And Uses For Vitamin A:

Vitamin A has been shown to have many benefits:  It protects against cancer, helps cure skin disorders, protects against night blindness, reverses some types of cornea damage and it acts in a supportive role in many bodily functions.  It is extremely beneficial in combating infections, including the common cold and flu.

Note:  Since I supplement with Organic Germanium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Zinc, I don't get more than a minor cold each year.  At the first sign of a cold, I take 100,000 IU of Vitamin A, 150mg of Zinc and 1,000mg of Vitamin C...Once.  This usually stops my cold within 24 hours.  Glen        

Deficiency Symptoms Of Vitamin A:

Acne, eczema, psoriasis, poor night vision, cornea ulcerations, anorexia, decreased immune system, stunted growth, degenerated mucous membranes.

Toxicity (Overdose) Symptoms Of Vitamin A:

Bone pain-brittleness, hair loss, dry skin, fatigue, headaches, anorexia, vomiting. 

Foods High In Vitamin A:

Animal/fish liver, parsley, mint, spinach, carrots, broccoli, dairy products, greens, sweet potatoes, cherries, apricots, cantaloupe, peaches, squash.

Supplements Of Vitamin A:

If you eat enough fresh fruit and vegetables every day, you probably don't need Vitamin A Supplements.  If you decide to supplement, we suggest you use Beta Carotene to avoid toxicity.  Your body converts Beta Carotene to Vitamin A when it is needed.  At the first sign of a cold or flu, taking 100,000-150,000 IU of Vitamin A daily for not more than 3 days can stimulate the immune system and stop the infection.

Health And Fitness For Life:

People looking for nutrient information usually want to avoid health problems, get the most out of life and the most life they can.  Not just physical existence, but mental and spiritual.  If you're looking for more than body or looks in your health and fitness goals, you can find it spiritually through God.  He can heal the stuff your diet doesn't control and bring real health and fitness to your life.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God
