Vitamin A

For those of you wanting to get more vitamins in your diet, lets take vitamin in to consideration. There are two ways you can take this very beneficial vitamin. One is in a fat soluble and the second is a water dispersible (beta-carotene, lemon grass). It is preferred to take water soluble for there are less chances of overdosing.

Vitamin A helps to counter acts night blindness and helps improve eye sight. Helps to build resistant to respiratory problems. It also plays a important role in nourishing skin, hair, nails, teeth, bones, gums. It also helps to fight against pollutants in the air we breath, keep that in mind for those of you how live in large cities.

These are great food sources to increase for your vitamin A, bright colored fruits and vegetables, green leafy vegetables, carrots, liver, milk, eggs, and fish liver oil.

Raw Juice sources are carrots, kale, parsley, escarole, spinach, sweet potatoes, watermelon, and turnip greens. These all taste great in a smoothie. If you have one veggie smoothie a day, you will be on a road to better health. You want 5-6 serving of vegetables a day, but a veggie shake will get you half way to that goal.
