Having sufficient amounts of vitamin A can help improve our immune systems, help to prevent infection; cancer and cardiovascular disease, and can be used to help treat symptoms of the common cold or the flu and osteoarthritis. Liver, raw carrots, squash, kale, mangoes and cantaloupe are all good sources of this vitamin.
