More about this report

Vitamin A is necessary to maintain good vision, skin and immune functioning. Vitamin A supplements may slow the progression of macular degeneration, enhance healing after laser eye surgery, and reduce the risk of certain cancers. At the same time, getting too much vitamin A can be dangerous.

So how do you know if you need a vitamin A supplement and, if you do, how can you tell which is best?

In this comprehensive review about vitamin A supplements, you'll get test results and quality ratings for 12 supplements (two of which failed to contain all the vitamin A they claimed), including products tested through CL's voluntary Quality Certification Program. You'll learn:
    • Which vitamin A supplements passed or failed ConsumerLab.com's testing and review and which were selected as CL's Top Picks
