Vitamin A was the first vitamin discovered in 1913 by eliminating it from the diet of animals causing them to lose their vision.

Around the world some 500,000 children are blind due to vitamin A deficiency. You get vitamin A from orange vegetables that contain beta-carotene, from dairy foods fortified with Vitamin A and D, from animal meats containing vitamin A and from multivitamins. The daily requirement is 5000 units and negative effects on bone occur at about 10,000 units so get your vitamin A from a multivitamin and from orange vegetables such as carrots, pumpkin, and squash. This is the first vitamin of many that I will tell you about including the B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E and others
