BACKGROUND Blood beta-carotene and vitamin A responses to oral beta-carotene are variable in humans. Some individuals are characterized as responders and others as low- or nonresponders. A better understanding of the conditions that produce the variability is important to help design public health programs that ensure vitamin A sufficiency. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to assess variability in absorption and conversion of beta-carotene to vitamin A in vivo in humans by using a novel double… CONTINUE READING
