Why is Vitamin A Necessary?

Vitamin A plays a vital role in bone growth, reproduction and immune system health. It also helps the skin and mucous membranes repel bacteria and viruses more effectively. It is essential to healthy vision, and may slow declining retinal function in people with retinitis pigmentosa.

A glaring omission in all the pseudo-science about vaccines is the power of this simple, cheap, effective, natural antiviral agent. Step one below is where vitamin A is most important. The reason your dermatologist may treat acne or wrinkles with retinoic acid (vitamin A) is because it strengthens the integrity of human cells. Not just the skin, but every cell in your body. A virus must penetrate your cells before it can ever make copies of itself, release these copies, and activate your immune system to release the chemicals that make you go through a healing episode (some call it “sick”). Adequate vitamin A levels prevent viruses from ever getting inside your cells. Even after penetration, large doses of vitamin A, 400,000 iu for 2 days, will abort viral infections like measles.

Your body forms vitamin A from chemicals you get from fruits/vegetables called “carotenoids”. These are plentiful in dark green, red, yellow, and orange produce. Sweet potatoes are very high in carotenoids. However, the conversion of carotenoids into vitamin A is dependent on T3-thyroid hormone. If thyroid levels are low (TSH above 1.0), you can’t convert carotenoids into vitamin A. This will make you more vulnerable to viral infections.

Again, regardless of your decisions about vaccinations, make sure the things that normally keep humans healthy are in place.
