What is Pure Nutrition Vitamin A
Pure Nutrition Vitamin A is a highly potent bioactive vitamin A supplement delivered in a purified fish liver oil softgel to maximize absorption. Vitamin A (retinol) is a crucial vitamin for supporting hair, skin, nails, eye function, and bone integrity.
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin commonly found in fish, organ meats, and bright-colored vegetables, like carrots, sweet potatoes, and squash. Lacking vitamin A in the diet is well-known to increase the risk of ocular disease and even vision loss.1 Pure Nutrition Vitamin A provides a pre-formed ester of vitamin A known as retinyl palmitate. This is simply retinol bonded to palmitic acid, which the body readily absorbs and converts to retinol - biologically active vitamin A1.
Each softgel of Pure Nutrition Vitamin A contains 3,000 mcg of vitamin A, equivalent to 333% of the recommended daily value.
Pure Nutrition Vitamin A Benefits
Pure Nutrition Vitamin A may provide a multitude of beneficial effects by helping you meet your daily needs of vitamin A, which is especially important for the skin, bones, hair, eyes, and cellular integrity.
Vitamin A plays a key role in supporting the special types of cells contained in skin tissues. Hair and nails are modified types of skin tissue, meaning vitamin A also supports these structures by helping reduce oxidative stress and promoting the differentiation of keratinocytes (immature skin cells) into mature epidermal cells (i.e. the skin cells visible on the surface of the body).
Vitamin A is arguably most important for protecting eye health by combining with a protein called opsin to create rhodopsin - a molecule in the eye that absorbs light, thereby supporting vision in low-light settings and color vision. Several studies have shown that vitamin A deficiency increases the risk of ocular dysfunction and even blindness.2
Another crucial component of this product is fish liver oil, which helps protect and insulate organs throughout the body.
Benefits of supplementing with vitamin A may include:
- Encourages vibrant, healthy skin
- Supports lustrous hair and stronger nails
- Supports bone strength
- Increases antioxidant capacity in the body
- Promotes healthy eye function
- Enhances cellular integrity
