Vitamin A is widely used to improve vision. It also plays an important role in the development of bone, cell differentiation, reproduction, and cell division. In addition, it supports the human immune system, and is known to normalize skin. Clinical results have shown that it significantly affects the skin’s thickness, and elasticity and its ability to increase collagen and DNA.
