Were you looking for information about Vitamin A? Vitamine A is a common misspelling of vitamin A.
 
Vitamin A is essential for good vision, cell growth and differentiation, and a healthy immune system. It is mainly obtained through the diet but is also available in the form of supplements. Although most people can safely take a multivitamin that contains a little vitamin A, high-dose supplementation is probably neither beneficial nor safe for most people. You should consult your healthcare provider before taking this supplement if you have liver disease, cirrhosis of the liver, or zinc deficiency.
