Vitamin A acts as a keratinization regulator, which helps to improve the skin’s texture, firmness, and smoothness.  Vitamin A is essential for the generation and function of skin cells especially when combined with vitamins C and E. Vitamin A in higher doses is often prescribed by physicians to treat severe acne.

Vitamin A is known as a skin normalizer, it acts as anti-keratinizing agent, helping the skin stay soft and plump with improved water-barrier properties.  As an anti-oxidant it will help fight free radicals in the skin cells.  Clinical studies with vitamin A indicate a significant increase in collagen, DNA, skin thickness, and elasticity.

Vitamin A also has an effect on the development and maintenance of epithelial cells and the development of bone. It is necessary for the differentiation of underlying cutaneous cells into mucous epithelial cells, an important factor in determining the integrity of mucous membranes.

It is essential for the proper synthesis of mucoproteins and glycoproteins found in mucous membrane secretions which act to inhibit infection by maintaining epithelial integrity. By virtue of its roles in epithelial cell differentiation and the effects of retinoids on cancer malignancies, vitamin A has been considered to serve an anticancer function as well.

Warning: Excess vitamin A intake may be toxic and may increase the risk of birth defects. Pregnant women and women who may become pregnant should not exceed 5,000 I.U. total per day of pre-formed vitamin A (retinyl).
