WHAT IS VITAMIN A AND WHAT ARE ITS EYE BENEFITS?
It seems like everyone knows that carrots are good for your vision. What makes it so good and what is it about the Vitamin A in carrots that makes it good!
Vitamin A actually is a group of antioxidant compounds that not only plays a role in vision but also promotes bone growth and also helps with the immune system.
Even though most people associate vitamin A comes from carrots, a range of other foods also contain significant amounts of vitamin A include beef, whole milk cheese, spinach, kale and sweet potatoes. So don’t just eat them carrots!
Vitamin A has an incredible array of benefits for the eyes. It promotes tear film stability and can be used as a treatment of dry eyes. It has also been shown to reduce the incidence of advanced macular degeneration. It even has been shown to have a helping hand in some forms of corneal inflammation and also reduce advancing retinitis pigmentosa.
Before you go ahead and stuff yourselves with 10 carrots and 2 scotch fillets to tackle the Vitamin A deficiency, there is also a thing known as vitamin A toxicity.
