What are the properties of Vitamin A 5000IU?
Vitamin A fulfils an important function for keeping a good health condition of the eyesight, immune system, and cellular growth. There are two types of vitamin A: retinol and beta-carotene. Vitamin A 5000IU provides the retinol form, which the body does not need to convert, as is the case with beta-carotene, and therefore it is available immediately.
Vitamin A is critical for vision, as an essential component of rhodopsin, a type of protein that absorbs the light from the receptors of the retina, and that also regulates the differentiation and functioning of the conjunctival and corneal membranes. A vitamin A deficiency can lead to the weakening of the cornea and even, in more serious cases, to produce partial blindness. Vitamin A helps reduce macular degeneration.
In relation to the immune system, vitamin A offers support and regulates a high number of physiological functions, participating in the correct function and increasing the level of protection against external agents that may produce infections or diseases. Similarly, it may reduce inflammation, thanks to its antioxidant properties, drastically reducing the damage to tissues at a cellular level. This way the neuronal degeneration may be mitigated, delaying the progression of important diseases, such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's.
Vitamin A is also necessary for the maintenance of skin, particularly for wound healing and to promote the regeneration and growth of the skin itself, providing support to the epithelial tissue. This vitamin is necessary for the synthesis of glycoproteins, which are in charge, among other things, of providing structural support to tissues.
Who is this Vitamin A 5000IU supplement for?
- Anyone seeking to reduce macular degeneration and offer protection and maintain vision.
- Those people looking to keep healthy skin.
