vitamin a Vitamin A



The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is 1000 micrograms (mg) for men, and 800 mg for women. The benefits of vitamin A includes a better vision, supports the immune system and aids in the growth and maintenance of bones, cells and skin. But beware of overdosing; too much of vitamin A (six or seven times the RDA) can cause dry skin, headaches, joint pain and insomnia.

Besides pills and capsules, vitamin A often can be found in the form of skin oils and face creams, helping in treating acne and pimples (vitamin a face cream).
