Vitamin A is essential for the maintenance of healthy epithelial tissue, which is found in the eyes, skin, respiratory system, GI and urinary tracts.  Vitamin A, also called retinol, helps your eyes adjust to light changes when you come in from outside and also helps keep your eyes, skin and mucous membranes moist.

Vitamin A mostly comes from animal foods, but some plant-based foods supply beta-carotene, which your body then converts into Vitamin A. It also has antioxidant properties that neutralize free radicals in the body that cause tissue and cellular damage. Scientific studies have demonstrated that beta-carotene is helpful to people who already have Coronary Artery Disease.

Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and calcium transport to bones.  Most people are low in Vitamin D, so ask your doctor to test your D levels with a simple blood test. If you are low in D, it could lead to many health problems such as lower immune function, increased risk of multiple sclerosis, and developing heart disease.  For women who are looking to become pregnant, it is critical to have your D levels checked. 

One recent study showed That there is "considerable evidence that low maternal levels of 25 hydroxyvitamin D are associated with adverse outcomes for both mother and fetus in pregnancy as well as the neonate and child". It is also believed that good levels of vitamin D is protective against all cancers.
