Structural formula:

Vitamin A, also called retinol, is light yellow crystal. Retinol and derivatives of retinol that play an essential role in metabolic functioning of the retina, the growth of and differentiation of epithelial tissue, the growth of bone, reproduction, and the immune response. Dietary vitamin A is derived from a variety of carotenoids found in plants.

We provide vitamin A with a molecular formula of C20H50O, which has a lot of benefits. The role of vitamin A in the visual cycle is very important, a deficiency of it will inhibit the reformation of rhodopsin and lead to night blindness. When in the retinoic acid form, vitamin A plays an important role in gene transcription. In dermatology, retinoic acid appears to maintain normal skin health by switching on genes and differentiating keratinocytes into mature epidermal cells. Retinyl palmitate has been used in skin creams, where it is broken down to retinol and ostensibly metabolised to retinoic acid, which has potent biological activity. Besides, Vitamin A stimulates the production and activity of white blood cells, takes part in remodeling bone, helps maintain the health of endothelial cells, and regulates cell growth and division.
