Vitamin A Products
Vitamin A is the name given to a group of fat-soluble antioxidant compounds. It was the first fat soluble vitamin to be recognised and is sometimes referred to as the “anti-infective” vitamin due to its enhancement of the body’s immunity against infections by increasing the lymphatic responses against disease forming antigens. It keeps the mucous membranes moist that line the mouth, respiratory passage and urinary tract and enhances the activity of white blood cells.
Vitamin A plays a critical role in maintaining vision, neurological function, healthy skin and more. Like all antioxidants, it’s also involved in reducing inflammation through fighting free radical damage. Well known for its role in supporting healthy eyes, it is also known as retinol because it produces the pigments in the retina in the eye. This enables eyes to adjust to light changes, keeps the them moist and improves night vision.
