Vitamin A + Carotenoids - Vitamin A 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 for some. Genetic variations in the enzyme BCMO1 (β-Carotene 15,15'-monooxygenase 1) can decrease the conversion efficacy of carotenoids into retinal by up to 69%. Known as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), these common variations can be bypassed with dietary retinol (vitamin A). Since variations in the BCMO1 gene have also been associated with macular pigment density, this formula also includes a blend of lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin to promote macular health. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the two carotenoids found in macular pigment; as such, they act to support the integrity and density of the pigment, as well as optical lens health. Astaxanthin offers support for antioxidant defenses to protect retinal health.*

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.*

What Is The Source?

Vitamin A and zeaxanthin are synthetic. Lutein is derived from marigold flower extract. Astaxanthin is derived from Haematococcus pluvialis algae extract. Red beet powder is derived from Beta vulgaris root. Hypoallergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
