Anti-Aging Vitamin A in Your Diet

Daily allowance of Vitamin AAnti-aging Vitamin A is widely used for treating skin care issues like liver spots, pigmentation problems, acne, baldness and even some skin cancers.

Many of the skincare products on the shelves are infused with Vitamin A. But, as with most vitamins and minerals – the best way to get it is naturally, from your diet.

Today, our health experts share their tips for getting Vitamin A naturally from everyday foods:

Eat Your Broccoli

Broccoli is one of America’s favorite vegetables because it tastes good, is versatile and is available all year long. Some people think beta-carotene (vitamin A) is only found in orange and yellow vegetables, but broccoli is an excellent source of vitamin A. It’s also a rich source of vitamin C, and bone-building vitamin K, and has plenty of fiber to fill you up and help control your weight.

Although 1/2 cup of cooked broccoli is a serving, you can easily eat twice that daily! You can eat broccoli raw, lightly steamed, stir-fried, roasted, or grilled. Eat it as a side dish, or toss into grains, egg dishes, soups, and salads.

Green Smoothie

My favorite way of getting my vitamin A is through my green smoothie recipe, which combines the use of raw foods to create a beautifying beverage. The green smoothie contains that I drink practically everyday contains over 450% of raw vitamin A from spinach and kale. Don’t let this scare you, as this is smoothie is to live for!

  • In a blender, combine 4 cups of either raw organic spinach or raw organic kale leaves (or a combination of both).
  • Add about 2 1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk, 1-2 cups of ice cubes, and your choice of fruit (strawberries, blueberries are best, as they are lower in sugar).
  • Add stevia to sweeten (or your favorite sweetener).
  • Blend for 1 minute, or until completely smooth.

I like to add 1 ounce of an avocado to make a smooth drink, which also adds vitamin E (great for hair and nails), as well as more vitamin A.

    Skin care can be easily done by avoiding UV radiation at all times. Food supplements like vitamin A and E also helps a lot in maintaining the health of our skin. *:'””

    Natural remedies are really great because they are cheap and they also do not have very bad side effects compared to medications.:*:.;
