All About Vitamins | Vitamin A (Retinol)

NGX nutrition is tailored to your genetic make-up, so the amount of vitamin A in each bag will change depending on which person has purchased it.

However, we can still look at what Vitamin A, or sometimes called Retinol, does for your body, why it's important, and what might happen if you are deficient in it.

Function

Vitamin A is important for three main reasons, first it is fundamental for a good immune system, second is that it is crucial for good eye-sight (much better than vitamin C), and third it is useful for healthy and clear, skin.

Vitamin A is also something important to consider if you are planning on having a baby. Some recent studies have shown that low vitamin A levels can lead to reduce fertility in both men and women.

Sources

NGX is a vegan product, so the vitamin A you'll be getting comes from plants. But you can get vitamin A from a variety of sources: Cheese, eggs, oily fish, oranges, leafy vegetables, carrots, pumpkins and sweet potatoes.

Deficiency

If your body isn't converting vitamin A out of your diet well, you may be deficient without even knowing it. The following symptoms are all signs of a vitamin A deficiency:

  • Dry skin
  • Dry eyes
  • Acne and spots
  • Throat or chest infections

The best way to see if you are converting the vitamins out of your diet properly is with a DNA test. Explore the NGX website and pick up a DNA test to understand how your body operates at a genetic level.
