Dutch population consumes little vitamin A19 September 2019
According to a publication from the Dutch government, a large part of the Dutch population consumes too little vitamin A. Vitamin A, or retinol, is a fat-soluble vitamin that can not be produced by the human body. It is important for a healthy skin and contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system. Furthermore, it supports the condition of the eyes.
Since vitamin A can not be produced by the human body, we depend on food intake for an adequate absorption of vitamin A. Amongst others, animal products like meat and dairy contain vitamin A. Besides that, carotenoids can be converted to vitamin A by our body. Some veggies, such as carrots, and fruits contain these carotenoids, but the human body is not able to produce them itself.
An other way to complement your vitamin A levels is by taking dietary supplements, such as Vitamin A by Vitaplex. This product offers 1,000 mcg of vitamin A per capsule and also contains Bioperine™ for increased bioavailability.
