Vitamin A (Retinol) Supplements
Vitamin A is also known as retinol (active form) because it makes the pigments in the retina of the eye and it is a fat-soluble vitamin. It is made up of retinol, beta-carotene and carotenoids. Vitamin A helps in maintaining good vision (especially in low light), healthy teeth, body growth, skeletal & soft tissue, immune function, mucous membranes, reproductive health and skin.
Vitamin A deficiency (hypovitaminosis A) symptoms are night blindness, dry eyes, hazy vision, dry lips, skin problems, hair loss and increased chances to get infections. Lack of Vitamin A increases the risk of eye problems, hyperkeratosis or dry, scaly skin, reversible night blindness and xerophthalmia (non-reversible corneal damage).
One of the best ways to get Vitamin A is through supplements if you are not getting sufficient intake from foods or if your GP has advised you. Recommended daily dosage for adult men is 0.7 mg and women is 0.6 mg.
