Sally T. Vitamin A + Zinc
Vitamin A is a fat soluble, long chain alcohol eg retinol. Naturally occurring Vitamin A is found only in the animal organism, although provitamins occur in the vegetable kingdom. An esterified form and esters such as the acetate and palmitate are sometimes referred for nutritional and medicinal use. The most active in humans is the trans vitamin A. Retinol is readily absorbed by the body and is found in animal foods such as liver, eggs and fatty fish.
Beta-carotene is a precursor for Vitamin A. The body has to convert it into retinol. All orange and dark green fresh foods contain beta-carotene.
