Vitamin A Palmitate Powder
Vitamin A is normally found in dairy, milk fat, and oil of various organ meats and fish. Beta-Carotene is also a source of Vitamin A and it can be found in many different orange vegetables such as pumpkins, carrots, squash, cantaloupe, apricots, grapefruit, yams, and seven some dark green vegetables. One of the reasons many people stay away from Vitamin A is because it is associated with fatty foods normally, however the vegetable sources of Beta-Carotene (which also contain Vitamin A) are free of fat. The more prominent the color of the fruit or veggie in question, the more Beta-Carotene (and thus Vitamin A as well) you stand to consume.

VITAMIN A PALMITATE SIDE EFFECTS
As long as suggested serving sizes are adhered to, it is not likely that any negative side effects will result from use of this supplement. However, because Vitamin A is absorbed so rapidly by the body, it is possible for toxicity to occur as a result of consuming too much. Though this is a rare condition, it can lead to fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, headache, flaky skin or even brain swelling. Taking too much can even result in liver damage or coma, though this is also rare.
