Vitamin A comes in two basic forms, "regular" vitamin A and beta carotene. Beta carotene is known as provitamin A and is found in plants and our vitamin A is from fish oil. Vitamin A is essential for many bodily processes including: vision and healthy skin, digestion, respiration, reproduction and the building of bones and teeth. It is a key nutrient in the development of skin, mucous membranes and tissue linings.
As a fat-soluble vitamin, vitamin A promotes healing and boosts the immune system. It benefits the eyes as well as soft tissue. Natural Factors uses advanced molecular distillation processing to protect our fish oils while ensuring that there is no heavy metal or chemical contamination.

Ingredients and Nutritional Information
Recommended Adult Dose
1 softgel daily or as directed by a health care practitioner. Keep out of reach of children.
Children: Suitable for supplementation in children at the level of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA).
Pregnancy and Nursing: Because high doses of vitamin A during pregnancy can cause birth defects, women of childbearing age should not supplement with more than 5,000 IU of vitamin A per day (beta carotene is a suitable non-toxic alternative). The same warning applies during lactation.
Seniors: Some may be more sensitive to vitamin A toxicity.
