What Is It? Vitamin A + Carotenoids provides preformed vitamin A to support cellular, ocular and immune function, plus carotenoids to promote retinal and macular health.
Uses For Vitamin A + Carotenoids Overall Health: Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin. It is essential to the healthy functioning of a number of biological processes, including vision, growth, reproductive function and the body's defense system. While many individuals are able to convert provitamin A carotenoids, like beta carotene, into active vitamin A, recent research has revealed that genetic variations can limit the ease of this conversion. Macular Health: In addition to vitamin A, which plays a key role in the visual cycle, this formula also includes a blend of lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin to promote macular health. Variations in the BCMO1 gene have also been associated with macular pigment density. Lutein and zeaxanthin, the two carotenoids found in macular pigment, act to support optical lens health as well as the integrity and density of the pigment.
