THE BREAKDOWN
  • Provides excellent Night time Vision

IN THE BODY

Withdrawls
Lack of Vitamin A can cause nighttime blindness, problems with your eyes, and skin lesions.


Natural Forms
Natural sources of Vitamin A include green vegetables, yellow and red fruits. The highest concentration of Vitamin A can be found in carrots.
