:: Vitamins and Minerals / Benefits of vitamin A
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).
