Vitamin A – 60 Caps

R114.95 (incl vat)

For the maintenance of good vision and healthy skin, nails and hair. Vitamin A’s most critical role is certainly that of maintaining healthy eyesight. Another important role of vitamin A is its contribution to the growth of new body cells. This process is critically important in the maintenance of healthy nails, tissues, skin and hair.

Beta-carotene is the orange pigment found in green leaves and carrots and is a pro-vitamin A carotenoid.

Beta-carotene is the most potent precursor to vitamin A, but its conversion is limited by a feedback system. If there is a vitamin A deficiency, Beta-carotene is cleaved into two molecules of vitamin A by a specific intestinal enzyme, but if there is an excess of vitamin A, the Beta-carotene functions as a tissue antioxidant, thereby keeping cells healthy. While high dosages of Vitamin A in the retinol/retinyl ester forms have shown toxicity in animals and man, especially during pregnancy, beta-carotene is not associated with vitamin A toxicity due to this feedback system, which is why we at Biogen have combined the safe levels of the 2 forms in this product.
