Interesting Facts Regarding The Benefits Of Vitamin A

Vitamin A is not a single compound but a term for a group of unsaturated molecules which include retinal and retinoic acids along with multiple pro vitamin A and carotenoids which the human body is able to convert to vitamin A. Vitamin A is one of the 24 essential vitamins and minerals required for human survival.

Deficiency of Vitamin A can lead to blindness, improper immune system, fertility issues and difficulties in absorbing dietary fat. It also affects the level of testosterone.

Effects of Vitamin A on testosterone level

Vitamin A has positive effects on production of testosterone. If there is no active vitamin A in the testicles then it is observed that level of testosterone falls and estrogen production shoots up inside the testicles. A good intake of right fats is an important building block to have a good amount of testosterone level. Low Vitamin A has negative impact on level of testosterone.

Trasferrin is used by the body to transport cholesterol molecules into Leydig cells located in the testicles to convert it into testosterone. Without Vitamin A our body will not be able to synthesize transferring molecules and thus testosterone transportation will become impaired.

Vitamin A deficiency is negative for testosterone production

Vitamin A deficiency is not good for testosterone production or testicular health. Vitamin A can increase testosterone level. Men have noticed increase in testosterone level after including vitamin A in their eating habits. It is not yet concluded if men with already optimum level of testosterone consume vitamin A can lead to further increase in testosterone level.

It is believed that just like vitamin D, vitamin A also however consumed in higher quantities raise the level of testosterone to an optimum level. After the highest point of vitamin balance in a blood is reached further increase is automatically stopped regardless of the consumption of vitamin A. Deficiency in vitamin A is less common unless you are in a developing country eating low fat diet as it is difficult to absorb vitamin A when there is no fat with it.
