VITAMIN A FOR PILATES
Vitamin A protects the delicate internal linings of the throat, mouth, trachea, nose and lungs from infection, pollution, dust and smoke. Vitamin A increases resistance to disease of the mucous membranes against germs, viruses and infections.
There are three forms of conversion from food-based vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) into useable vitamin A, which is a fat-soluble compound. The most effective form for the respiratory system is retinoic acid, which is essential for the health of tissues within the lungs and trachea termed mucosal tissues. These protect against invading airborne germs, viruses and bacteria.
