Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin and plays a key role in eye health. The body gets some of its vitamin A from animal fats and also some from beta carotene and other carotenoids found in fruit and vegetables.
This vitamin not only supports night vision but is also involved in healthy skin, immunity and bone health.
Most over 50’s will have ample stores of vitamin A, mostly in their liver and there appears to be little concern for vitamin deficiency within the UK. In addition, vitamin A is well absorbed in older populations and some institutions believe that seniors should not consume this vitamin due to toxicity concerns.
Prime Fifty has decided not to include vitamin A in its range of supplements.
