Were you looking for information about Vitamin A? Vitaminin A is a common misspelling of vitamin A.
 
Most people obtain enough vitamin A through their diets, but the vitamin is also available in supplementation form for those with a deficiency. The fat-soluble vitamin is essential for many functions of the body; it is necessary for cell growth and differentiation (the process that makes stem cells into different types of cells), good vision, and a healthy immune system. You should talk to your healthcare provider before taking vitamin A if you are pregnant, have liver disease, or have alcoholism.
