Interestingly, the body can produce the whole vitamin A it needs, only from the fruits and vegetables we eat! Vitamin A from fruits and vegetables is incredibly important for many body functions. As an antioxidant it extracts free radicals and combats diseases and infections. It is therefore particularly important for our immunity.
