Vitamin A foods.
Vitamin A, also known as retinol when activated in the body, is an essential micronutrient that we need for:⠀
– Maintaining vision⠀
– Promoting growth and development⠀
– Protecting tissues and organs⠀
– Enhancing immune function⠀
Vitamin A is a key anti-inflammatory due to the role it plays in our immune function, specifically in the gut which houses around 70% of our immune system.⠀
Research has also shown that vitamin A receptors are abundant in certain parts of the brain and plays a part in modulating neurotransmitter systems.
