Health Benefits of Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a group of essential fat-soluble compounds that is essential for the process of vision, cell growth and development and immune function. Vitamin A deficiency can result from an inadequate intake of foods high in vitamin A or beta-carotene (a precursor of vitamin A), including liver, egg yolk, whole milk, butter and cheese. Beta-carotene is found in carrots, dark green leafy vegetables as well as pumpkin, melon and various other fruits.

“It’s companies like Persona who give the gift of nutrition from the very start that truly make this world a healthier place,” commented Howard Schiffer, founder and president, Vitamin Angels. “We are proud Persona Nutrition has been a partner of Vitamin Angels for the past three years, and has helped us reach one million children who need vitamin A the most. We look forward to reaching many more children with essential nutrients through our continued partnership.”
