Vitamin A is a critical fat soluble vitamin and antioxidant that plays a vital role in eye and immune function, as well as supporting skin health. There are two forms of Vitamin A, Active Vitamin A and beta carotene. Active Vitamin A comes from animal-derived foods and is called retinol, while beta carotene comes from fruit and vegetables. Nutricost has formulated their Vitamin A with a palmitic acid (fatty acid) and retinol blend, which does not need to be converted into the active form, unlike beta-carotene.
Being a major antioxidant, Vitamin A effectively combats inflammation by dampening the over-reactive immune response in cells triggered by inflammatory proteins. This makes Vitamin A a powerful ally in helping fight cancer, auto-immune diseases, and other chronic conditions. It also plays a major part in eye health, since Vitamin A is a crucial part of the rhodopsin molecule, which is activated when light shines on the retina, sending a signal to the brain and relays your vision. Vitamin A helps ward off macular degeneration, which is an age related condition that can result in severe vision loss.
Whether you’re looking to protect your overall health, or looking for an immune boost, Nutricost Vitamin A offers an impressive 10,000 IU per serving that will get you headed in the right direction.
