Vitamin A (retinol and retinoids) – For a better perspective.

Fat-soluble vitamin A is essential for our sight. It is also important for our immune system, skin formation, and as a growth factor. Numerous carotenoids – the precursor for vitamin A – function as radical scavengers (also called, antioxidants).

A high vitamin A content is present in liver, whole milk, butter, cheese, and egg yolk. Precursors for vitamin A, predominantly β-carotene, are found in vegetables (e.g. carrots, spinach, and broccoli) and in fruit (apricots, mangos, nectarines, and peaches).

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) – for preventing scurvy (the sailors’ illness feared in the past)

Water-soluble vitamin C performs a series of functions. It is a strong reducing agent, as well as a radical scavenger and antioxidant (like vitamin A). Vitamin C is involved in preserving connective tissue. It supports iron absorption from food and participates in cicatrisation. It improves the immune system by enriching itself in leukocytes and supporting activated T-cells.

It contributes to the prevention of arteriosclerosis by smoothing the arteries’ inner walls and so preventing cholesterol from attaching itself to them. Vitamin C provides important protection to the pituitary gland and supports its hormone distribution. It is involved in the regulatory circuit of sex hormones, stress hormones, as well as thyroid growth and activity.

Fruit and vegetables contain large amounts of it.

Because it is water soluble, surplus vitamin C is simply separated in the kidney again. The absorption of too much, poses the risk of kidney stones.

Vitamin E (tocopherol and tocotrienol) – Your heart has taken it to heart.

Fat-soluble vitamin E likewise functions as an antioxidant. It mainly protects cell membranes and also plays an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. It does this by intercepting highly reactive oxygen compounds.

A high content of vitamin E is present in avocados, seeds and nuts – as well as the oils produced from these. The oils should, if possible, be cold-pressed.

A 40g portion of chocolate provides about 15% of the estimated daily requirement of vitamin E for an average adult.
