Vitamin A and Aging

You would almost have to live under a rock to not have seen vitamin A (aka retinol or retinyl palmitate)  in anti-aging products for skin creams and potions.  I admit, they are appealing to me as I have reached my forties as well.  What’s more, they seem to work.  But, if it works so well topically, then why wouldn’t it work BETTER from the diet?  Then, you can saturate all cells from the inside out.   Carrots are very famous for their levels of vitamin A.  The truth is they are not rich in vitamin A, they are rich in carotenoids, vitamin A precursors, but more on this later.
