Vitamin-A is extremely vital for maintaining healthy skin. One of my all time favorite foods has been found to offer 4 times usable Vitamin-A when combined with carrots and/or tomatoes. I'm referring to avocados. It works by allowing the body to better absorb the Vitamin-A in other foods rich in Vitamin-A.
Vitamin A 4% Vitamin C 24%
Calcium 1% Iron
Vitamin D 0% Vitamin B-6 20%
Vitamin B-12 0% Magnesium 10%
The researchers investigated if avocados could positively help the body use and absorb vitamin A from carotene-rich foods when eaten together; like combing carrots or tomatoes with avocado. The research compared a tomato sauce meal without avocado and found the addition of avocado more than quadrupled the conversion of inactive Vitamin-A into active Vitamin-A.
Skin ages when it's deprived of essential nutrients. Your skin needs proper hydration from food as well as protein and fatty acids, vitamins & minerals. If your skin is not absorbing these nutrients it will show in the condition of your skin. Eat a diet rich in colorful vegetables & fruits, and mix them together, they work better when combined.
