Vitamins A and E can both exist as two different enantiomers. One is inactive in the body
and the other is useful. How does the body convert the inactive enantiomer
into the useful one or vice versa?
[Moderator's note : This question was originally submitted as two similar but seperate questions,
one about Vitamin A and the other about Vitamin E.]
