Today we’re going to talk about the first sign of vitamin A deficiency: nyctalopia. Nyctalopia is night blindness.

The active form of vitamin A is called retinol. Retinol is needed for peripheral vision and to see in dim light.

Beta-carotene is the precursor to retinol—it needs to convert into retinol to become active.

Thinking that you’re getting enough of the active form of vitamin A because you’re consuming beta-carotene can cause you to become vitamin A deficient.

It’s important to consume the active form of vitamin A to support your eyes and your overall health.

Foods rich in vitamin A (retinol):
• Cod liver oil
• Grass-fed liver
• Raw cheese
• Butter (raw)
• Cream (raw)
• Egg yolk

Benefits of vitamin A:
• It helps you see in the dark
• It prevents dry eyes
• It helps the eyes compensate
• It helps prevent rough, scaly, or dry skin
• It supports the immune system and helps prevent infections
• It supports healthy mucus membranes and your internal skin
• It helps support childhood development

Top causes of vitamin A deficiency:
• Pregnancy
• Breastfeeding
• Polymorphism
• Pasteurization
• Low-fat diets
• Liver damage
• Lack of bile
• Gut damage
