Vitamin A main characteristics

Vitamin A is essential for development, as it helps the body's cellular differentiation process.
How to take vitamina A
We offer a great selection of vitamins on our website, such as vitamin A with retinoic acid, that will help you complete your vitamin intake based on the SEOM recommended daily requirements, which are determined by sex and age to optimise your metabolism and build a healthier body.
The SCF recommendation for the daily dose (NRV*) of vitamin A is 800mcg for both men and women.
Vitamin A (retinol or retinoic acid) belongs to the set of retinoids. It is fat-soluble (that is, soluble in fat and not in water) and accumulates in the adipose tissue and liver. To get its full range of benefits, it's best to take it accompanied by a polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fat source, such as vegetable oils, butter or nuts, which will help its absorption, or with the first meal of the day.
