Sweet Potato

I wrote about the importance of Vitamin A previously (you can find it here), and what it does for our bodies. Along with helping with vision, Vitamin A plays a role in the immune system, reproduction, heart health, lung health, and kidney health.

With all of these important functions, it’s good to know where you can get this vital nutrient. I have put together a list of 17 sources of Vitamin A. Why 17 sources you ask? Because 17 just seemed like an underappreciated number, and it felt right.

17 Sources of Vitamin A

  1. Sweet Potato – 1 Large baked sweet potato will provide 34,592 IU of Vitamin A
  2. Beef Liver (1 Slice Cooked) – 21,566 IU
  3. Spinach (1 Cup Cooked) – 18,886 IU
  4. Butternut Squash (1 Cup Cubes Raw) – 14,882 IU
  5. Cod Liver Oil (1 Tbsp) – 13,600 IU
  6. Carrot (Medium, Raw) – 10,191 IU
  7. Kale (1 Cup Chopped) – 6,693 IU
  8. Red Pepper (1 Cup Chopped) – 4,655 IU
  9. NeoVitin (2 Tablets) – 3,500 IU
  10. Cantaloupe (Medium Wedge) – 2,334 IU

  15. Mustard Greens (1 Cup Cooked) – 738 IU

This list is far from comprehensive, but it’s a good start to get an idea of what foods have Vitamin A. Keep in mind that there are a lot of sources of Vitamin A in varying amounts. Monitoring your diet is a great way to help get your body the nutrients it needs.
