How Vitamin A Works
Vitamin A (retinol) is a fat-soluble vitamin essential for vision, growth, reproduction, cell division, and the integrity of the immune system. The most well-known function of vitamin A is its role in vision. As part of the membrane-bound visual protein rhodopsin, vitamin A is essential in the eyes for converting light into nerve impulses.
Vitamin A is essential for normal cellular differentiation. Retinoic acid, assumes a central role in gene activation and transcription. As a result, vitamin A status has profound effects on all rapidly dividing tissues in the body, such as immune cells and intestinal cells, and affects fertility, fetal development and growth.
The intestinal absorption of vitamin A is associated with fat absorption. Therefore, some dietary fat must be present for efficient vitamin A absorption to occur.
