G&G Vitamin A (retinol) 5000iu - 120 Capsules


Vitamin A is a fat-soluble nutrient that occurs in two forms; carotene and retinol. The carotene form of vitamin A is found in plant based foods such as carrots and sweet potatoes. The human body has to convert this form into retinol, before it can be utilised by cells.

Studies show that some individuals have a genetic variant which may cause poor conversion between the carotene and retinol forms of vitamin A. For this reason, G&G uses a high-quality pure vitamin A acetate in this supplement. This is a type of preformed retinol, which means it doesn't require conversion in the body. This form of retinol is suitable for vegans.

It comes in a vegetable cellulose capsule, which enables G&G to avoid the addition of unnecessary chemicals, excipients, binders and coatings that are commonly found in tablet supplements. A vegetable cellulose capsule is designed specifically to break down naturally within the acid of your stomach, ensuring that your body absorbs the nutrients during digestion.
