    2. the daily requirement of vitamin A

    According to the recommendation of the German Society for Nutrition (DGE), women should take approx. 0.8 mg
    (2.6 i.E.) and men 1.0 mg (3.3 i.E.) of vitamin A per day. For children the value is approx. 0.6 mg (2 i.U.). However, in some life situations (such as pregnancy), certain diseases or operations, the daily intake may be increased.

    3 What happens when vitamin A is overdosed?

    An overdose through food is practically impossible. An overdose of vitamin A happens when vitamin A has been administered in high doses over a long period in the form of food supplements. An acute overdose of vitamin A manifests itself in nausea and vomiting. If the overdose continues over a very long period of time, sleep disturbances, dry skin and hair loss may occur. In pregnant women, an excess of vitamin A can even damage the unborn child.

    4. the intake of vitamin A

    Vitamin A is absorbed by the human organism depending on the fat content of the food. The vitamin is sensitive to heat and light in the presence of oxygen. For this reason, up to 20% of the vitamin is lost during preparation and cooking. The vegetable precursor of vitamin A (beta-carotene) is converted to vitamin A in the intestine. The vitamin A esters from animal food are broken down in the intestine and absorbed by the intestinal cells. Vitamin A can then be absorbed from the tissue as required and stored as vitamin A esters. Lungs, mucous membranes and the liver are particularly good stores.
