Vitamin A Deficient? Eat These Superfoods!

March 27, 2015 10:04 am

If you want to improve or maintain the quality of your eye health, it’s best to start from within. The Vitamin A found in foods helps to prevent blindness, eye inflammation, and dry eye, and it’s best obtained through the foods that you eat. The average adult needs approximately 5,000 IU of Vitamin A per day, and these three foods can help you to get it.

  1. Carrots. Carrots have always been known for being good for your eye health, and it’s largely due to their high amounts of Vitamin A. One carrot alone contains 10,191 of Vitamin A and just 25 calories, which provides 204% of your recommended daily intake without adding to your allotted calories.
  2. Iceberg lettuce. While spinach gets all of the credit for its many health benefits, iceberg lettuce holds its own when it comes to Vitamin A. The mild, crunchy lettuce contains 361 IU of Vitamin A in just one cup, as well as a variety of other vitamins and minerals.
  3. Sweet potatoes. Though there are quite a few foods that contain large amounts of Vitamin A, none of them come close to sweet potatoes. This versatile tater offer 438% of the average adult’s recommended daily amount of Vitamin A, and one medium sweet potato contains just 103 calories.
