Vitamin A

 

Ladies, vitamin A is essential for great looking skin.

Vitamin A helps form and maintain healthy teeth, skeletal and soft tissue, mucous membranes, and skin. It is essential for good vision. It also helps strengthen your respiratory system, helps your skin, hair, teeth, gums, and nails, and defends against premature aging. Vitamin A deficiency causes blindness.

Where to get it –

Almonds, apricots, fortified breads and cereals, broccoli, butter, cabbage, canteloupe, carrots, cheese, chicken, dark greens, eggs, fish, mandarin oranges, mango, meat, milk, oatmeal, plums, tomatoes, turnips, watermelon, yogurt

Don’t go crazy though – Vitamin A is toxic at high doses. Never take more than 10,000 IU a day unless under direct supervision of a doctor. You probably don’t need to take a supplement.
