Vitamin A is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that supports the health of skin, bone, eyes and the immune system. It is also necessary for growth, reproduction, cellular differentiation and proliferation.

Vitamin A forms a part of the protein rhodopsin, which absorbs light in retinal receptors, and supports normal function of the eyes cornea and conjunctiva. It plays an important role in helping the eyes adapt to light changes.

Preformed vitamin A is found in animal-sourced food, while provitamin A, which includes the carotenoids alpha carotene, beta carotene and beta cryptoxanthin that occur in plants, is converted to vitamin A in the body. However, people may have different abilities to convert provitamin A to vitamin A, which may be due to the genetic variability in betacarotene metabolism of individual humans. Therefore, carotenoids may not be a good vitamin A source for those who are poor converters, and preformed vitamin A would be a better choice.1 Carlson Vitamin A capsules contain preformed vitamin A from fish oil and retinyl palmitate.
