Even though vitamin A is considered a single-nutrient, it is actually a fat-soluble compound made up of retinol, retinal and retinyl esters.

Vitamin A is popular for improving vision. But that’s not its only benefit, as it also supports cell growth, immune function, and fetal development in your body.

Furthermore, it is also beneficial for several skin conditions — among which the most popular one is acne.

1. Potent Antioxidant

Just like its precursor provitamin A carotenoids (beta-carotene, alpha-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin carotene), vitamin A also has antioxidant properties.

This means that vitamin A protects your body against free radicals  — molecules that harm your body by creating oxidative stress.

In case you didn’t already know, oxidative stress can be fatal in the worst cases. Many chronic illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, and cognitive disorders are directly linked to high levels of oxidative stress. (1)

So if you want to reduce these harmful molecules from your body, then add foods rich in vitamin A to your diet.

2. Improves Eye Health and Reduces Macular Degeneration

As mentioned earlier, vitamin A improves your vision. It also protects your eyes from certain eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

According to this study, high levels of vitamin A, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin reduce risk of AMD by up to 25%.

The same study states that the reduction in risk is thanks to the oxidative-stress-lowering properties of vitamin A and the other carotenoids.

3. May Reduce Risk of Certain Cancers

Vitamin A may reduce risk of certain cancers due to its antioxidant properties.

According to this study conducted on over 10,000 adults, participants with the highest levels of alpha-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin had a 46% and 61% lower risk of dying from lung cancer respectively than those who had the lowest intake of these nutrients.

Furthermore, another study concludes that retinoids (vitamers of vitamin A) slow down the development of certain cancer cells including breast, bladder, and ovarian cancer cells.

4. Boosts Immune System

Vitamin A boosts our immune system by creating certain cells, such as B- and T-cells, which play a key role in helping our immune system fight off certain diseases.

Furthermore, vitamin A deficiency leads to a significant increase in pro-inflammatory molecules that diminish immune system function. (2)

5. Enhances Fertility and Fetal Development

In case you didn’t already know, vitamin A is vital for both male and female reproduction because it plays a key role in sperm production

Vitamin A is also important for fetal growth, fetal tissue development and maintenance. (3)

Health Issues Associated With Vitamin A Deficiency

After reading the benefits of vitamin A, its importance becomes clear as daylight.

People deficient in vitamin A may face severe health complications, including:

  • A rare type of blindness that is preventable with the help of sufficient vitamin A intake.
  • Increased risk of dying from infections like diarrhea and measles.
  • Increased risk of acne and hyperkeratosis.

Daily Recommended Intake

For men, women, and children, the daily recommended intake of vitamin A is 900 micrograms, 700 micrograms, and 300-600 micrograms, respectively.

Remember, too much of anything is bad, and vitamin A is no exception. Just like vitamin A deficiency can lead to several health complications, excessive intake can also be risky.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
