Were you looking for information about Vitamin A? Vitamen A is a common misspelling of vitamin A.
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is stored in the liver. It comes from both animal and plant sources, and is available in supplementation form (although most people obtain enough of it through their diet). Vitamin A is essential for cell growth and differentiation, good vision, bone growth, and a healthy immune system. While most people tolerate supplementation well, potential side effects of the vitamin include nausea and vomiting, dizziness, and peeling of the skin.
