What Is a Retinol Equivalent?

Overview

Vitamin A changes form as it moves through the body, and retinol is the stored version. A new unit, the retinol equivalent (RE), was created specifically to measure retinol. One RE equals 0.001 mg of retinal, 0.006 mg of beta-carotene and 3.3 IU of vitamin A.
