Vitamin A palmitate or retinol is fat soluble as are all forms of vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for immune function, vision and reproduction. It is critical for vision as it provides a protein that absorbs light in the retinal receptors. It also supports the functioning of the cornea.
Vitamin A also plays a role in skin health and wound healing and is critical to the normal formation of heart, lung, eyes and other organs.
