Vitamin A (retinol) is a fat-soluble vitamin, and is stored in the liver. Retinol is metabolised by the body into many different forms of vitamin A, so plays a large part in health maintenance. It is needed:
- for normal growth of healthy skin and body tissue;
- as a powerful antioxidant; and
- for vision in low light.
Best Natural Sources of Vitamin A
Mangoes, melons, apricots, papayas, tangerines, tomatoes, carrots, liver, eggs, dairy products, some fatty fish, dark green vegetables, pumpkin, sweet potato and watercress.
Vitamin D is fat-soluble, stored mainly in the liver, and:
- increases the efficiency of intestinal absorption of calcium; as well as
- helping the body utilise calcium and phosphorus, which will promote healthy teeth and bones
Best Natural Sources of Vitamin D
Vitamin D is synthesised by the skin in the presence of sunlight, but can also be found in egg yolk, fish liver oil and fatty fish (e.g. salmon, mackerel, etc.).
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) are non-essential, unsaturated fatty acids belonging to the Omega 3 family. They are needed for the production of prostaglandins, which are involved with:
- healthy brain function;
- vision; and
- learning ability, co-ordination and mood.
Best Natural Sources of DHA and EPA
- Oily fish (e.g. sardines, salmon and mackerel); and
- Plant oils (e.g. flaxseed and walnuts).
Nature’s Own Cod Liver Oil is clean, stable and free from ocean pollutants.
