Vitamen A or Retinol- will eating it benefit the skin?

Vitamin A, also known as retinol is known for its skincare benefits it also has several important functions for the body. Studies have shown that it if ingested, Vit A. may help skin & acne too (do not exceed the RDA/DV as it’s toxic & harmful to the body) however topical applications (applying on the skin) of retinol/ retinoids have greater benefits for the skin and can also be used for acne prevention.

Vitamen A preforms several important functions in the body such as increasing the immune systems strength against illness and infection, improves vision in dim lighting and keeps the skins lining healthy on parts of the body such as the nose.

You can get vitamin A by including good sources of beta-carotene in your diet, as the body can convert this into retinol.

The main food sources of beta-carotene are yellow/ red fruits & veg (carrots, sweet potatoes, mango, papaya, apricot & red peppers) and green (leafy) vegetables, such as spinach.

Below is a vegan recipe we love with the approx. recommended daily amount of vitamen A needed for an adult. Like, share, & comment:
