Vitamin A

 

The vitamin that helps your vision the most is Vitamin A, particularly your nighttime vision. This vitamin is most useful for helping with vision at night time 

actually, and it helps your body against a condition known as night blindness, or Xerophtha.

Vitamin A is also known as Retinol or Carotene though, and it has a wide variety of other health properties too. This vitamin is a powerful antioxidant in fact, which helps combat the effects of time and free radicals. Vitamin A is frequently used in skin care and beauty products these days too, because it helps keep your skin looking younger and healthier.

Vitamin A helps with a number of ailments and health issues though. It helps strengthen weak eyesight in addition to improving night blindness for instance. Vitamin A is also an excellent skin vitamin. Not only does it improve facial skin's tone and suppleness, but it helps combat blackheads and reduce acne as well.

Other skin conditions vitamin A helps with include preventing or healing boils and carbuncles, repairing open ulcers, and making skin, hair and teeth healthier too.

Inside the body Vitamin A plays critical roles as well. There it helps build resistance to diseases and sicknesses, guards us against respiratory infections, builds strong bones, helps us live to older ages, and helps our body digest proteins.

Some health symptoms that can occur when a person is deficient in Vitamin A include eye problems, red and itching eyes, dry and brittle hair, loss of appetite, sterility, and an impaired sense of smell.

Most of the natural food sources for vitamin A include different types of fish, cod liver oil, dark green leafy vegetables, carrots, butter, and whole milk.

Vitamin A can be gotten from herbal sources as well though, and some of those include Alfalfa, Black Cohosh, Bee Pollen, Capsicum (Cayenne), Dandelion, Echinacea, Fennel, Fenugreek, Garlic, Ginger, Ginseng, Kelp, Peppermint, Red Raspberry, Rosemary, Sage, and Yarrow.

As you research vitamins and their herbal sources, you'll find there are several that often stand out as seeming to be a source for everything. These are not miracle herbs and they don't provide you with every single vitamin you need, but they do come quite close. And it's because of this that we recommend these particular herbs for general daily multi-vitamin uses.
