Ello Yumies! Hope you’re all doing great :)) last time we met we talked about Vitamin-D and just a quick reminder, always try and remember to get your daily dose of sunlight but most importantly let’s hope it’s not cloudy. So, for our third time this month I am going to talk about another Vitamin which I myself always associate it with Bugs Bunny because as most of you know, Carrots were his favourite food. Carrots are known to be rich in Vitamin-A and this will be our new discussion.
Vitamin-A has many functions, one of which is very popular and that it helps the vision, especially in low light and when it comes to colour vision, and it also maintains and helps protecting the cornea. Vitamin also help in skin development; it helps in the distribution & functionality of T-Cells (which is a type of white blood cell) that protects the human body from being infected. Most importantly it plays an important role in the reproduction system as it helps the embryo to develop & grow healthy.
What are the sources of Vitamin-A? there are many food sources that contain Vitamin-A including Mangos, Spinach, Tomatoes, Eggs, Sweet Potatoes, Bell Peppers, Leafy Vegetables & Squash. On the other hand, if you aren’t vegan, there’s another variety that you can choose from and that includes Beef & Lamb Liver, Liver Sausage, Bluefin Tuna, Salmon, King Mackerel, Goat Cheese, Caviar and Cheddar.
