Vitamin A, refers to fat-soluble vitamins.
Has a diverse impact on the vital functions of the body. It plays an important role in oxidation-reduction processes (due to a large number of unsaturated bonds), participates in the synthesis of mucopolysaccharides, proteins, lipids. Retinol plays an important role in maintaining the normal skin and epithelium of the mucous membranes, ensuring normal differentiation of the epithelial tissue, in the processes of photoreception (contributes to the adaptation of man to the dark). Retinol is involved in the mineral metabolism, the processes of cholesterol formation, enhances the production of lipase and trypsin, enhances myelopoiesis, cell division processes. Local action is mediated by the presence of specific retinol-binding receptors on the surface of the cells of the epithelium. It inhibits the processes of keratinization, enhances the proliferation of epithelial cells, rejuvenates cellular populations and reduces the number of cells that go along the path of terminal differentiation.
It is believed that retinol has an antitumor effect, which, however, does not extend to non-epithelial tumors.
