Vitamin A takes part in eyesight, growth, reproductive capabilities, and cell differentiation
The Ancient Egyptians knew that consuming beef liver rich in Vitamin A could maintain or improve good night vision. "In this explicit intake of liver we effectively witness the first functional food containing Vitamin A" say the authors of an overview in the 'Klinischen Monatsblättern für Augenheilkunde' [Ophthalmology Clinical Monthly] (Thieme, Stuttgart. 2010).
Vitamin A is required for the functioning and division of epithelial cells, and therefore influences growth and the production of skin, mucous membranes and cartilage.
Vitamin A can support the intestine in producing a protective mucosa. This happens via Vitamin A's protection of the epithelial tissue, which is necessary for forming the intestinal mucosa.
Along with the protein Opsin, it helps to form the visual purple (Rhodopsin) in the rods and cones of the retina, thereby playing an essential role in sight. It is also significant in reproductive processes such the development of the placenta and foetus, and well as for testosterone production. By interacting with iron, vitamin A influences haematopoiesis (blood formation), and leads to increased production and release of red blood cells.

Long periods spent watching TV, heavy reading, working on a computer, driving at night and intense sunlight all take their toll on our eyes.
A sufficient vitamin A supply is advantageous in countering this. It can support the intestine in producing a protective mucous membrane.
