Vitamin A in a Vegan Diet

Vitamin A is essential to human health. It is great for our eyesight, our immune system and bone growth[1].

Our bodies convert beta-carotene to Vitamin A. This means that good sources of Vitamin A are vegetables that are high in beta-carotene – carrots, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, spinach, cantaloupe, mango, apricots, and kale – so eat some of these every day!
