Vitamin A is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in many bodily functions. Vitamin A promotes the normal functioning of the eyes, skin and mucous membranes, as well as the immune system, and participates in the process of cellular differentiation. The body is unable to produce vitamin A on its own, so it must be obtained from food.
Retinyl palmitate is a safe and effective form of vitamin A. Two drops contain 750 micrograms of highly-absorbed vitamin A. Suitable for people who have difficulty swallowing.
Vitamin A is present in animal products as retinoids and in vegetable products as carotenoids, which are converted to retinoids by the body. Vitamin A is a generic term for retinoid compounds that have the biological activity of retinol. Vitamin A activity is expressed as retinol equivalents (RE).
