A (Vitamin A)

A (VITAMIN A)

Vitamin A is an essential nutrient, a potent anti-oxidant, and required for normal vision and for healthy skin and mucous membranes. It is also needed by the thymus gland. Beta carotene is a precursor (building block) of vitamin A and a major component of the body’s natural antioxidant defenses including fighting cancers. Recent research indicates taking natural forms of beta carotene are the best way to get Vitamin A along with Vitamin D and a wide range of whole food concentrates to assure body assimilation. Synthetic forms of beta-carotene may be harmful.

Vitamin A plays a role in a variety of functions throughout the body, such as:

  • Vision
  • Gene transcription
  • Immune function
  • Embryonic development and reproduction
  • Bone metabolism
  • Haematopoiesis
  • Skin health
  • Antioxidant activity

Vitamin A Palmitate is essential not only for normal skin development, but also for the growth and maintenance of bones, teeth, glands, nails and hair. Studies suggest A also helps support against night blindness, cystic fibrosis, infection and maintenance of epithelial tissues.

Vitamin A is class of phytochemical, a carotenoid, and is fat soluble.

A is needed for eye health and skin health, enhances immunity, helps mucous membrane tissue repair, immune system support and protection, acts as an antioxidant, may  help support immune system prevention of certain cancers and other diseases.

Vitamin A is needed for new cell growth.

Vitamin A is well known as a perceived wrinkle eliminator! (Retin A – topical form known as tretinoin) reduces fine lines and age spots.

Carotenoids are related compounds like carotenes and lycopenes. Beta carotene converts to A in liver, and aids in cancer prevention and free radical scavenging or nuetralizing free radicals.

The RDA for Vitamin A ranges from 700 to 900 IUs daily for the average female and male. As with all RDAs, many supplements provide substantially higher levels perceived to have increased therapeutic benefit.

High levels like 100,000 IUs daily can damage liver though.

The best known carotenoid complex is extracted from algea and known as BETATENE. Astaxanthin is extracted from blue-green algae and some believe it to be the world’s most powerful anti-oxidant and carotenoid.
