Vitamin A is a very important nutrient for healthy fetal development. Though retinyl is the synthetic form of vitamin A, using only beta-carotene would require the body to convert beta-carotene into the retinyl form of vitamin A. Some individuals may not be able to efficiently convert beta-carotene to retinyl vitamin A. Thus, these individuals may be vitamin A deficient if only ingesting beta-carotene. Both forms of vitamin A are included in the Optimal Prenatal capsules to ensure that the vitamin A needs of all consumers are addressed.
