Vit A is truly important.
 May 5, 2014
"For many years I have known that Vitamin A is an important daily food supplement. Due to my age, I find this carotene complex continues to be even more important, such as for my immune system.
Due to extreme tropical heat, I rarely spend time in the sun so I am in need of food supplements. I would recommend this to everyone.

Taking a beta carotene for years
 May 11, 2013
"I've been taking some form of beta carotene for several years. It's hard to tell if they do all the good stuff they say, but I like the little bit of color they add to my skin. Gotta say this is the best smelling tablet I've ever had, and I'm a sniffer."
