Vitamin A, retinol

Vitamin A is one of the essential nutrients and fat soluble vitamins. In nature, it occurs in the form of retinol, 3-dehydroretinol, and as provitamin α-, β and γ-carotene, from which retinol is formed via biosynthesis.

Vitamin A contributes to normal iron metabolism, and the maintenance of normal mucous membranes, skin and vision. Vitamin A also contributes to the normal function of the immune system and has a role in the process of cell specialization. 

Vitamin A is a natural compound of Mana Powder and Mana Drink ingredients. Moreover, we add vitamin A as retinol acetate. 5 servings of Mana Powder or Mana Drink contain 800 µg of vitamin A (retinol).
