As a fat-soluble nutrient, vitamin A may be more difficult for some individuals to absorb than water-soluble vitamins. Fat-soluble nutrients require a complex series of reactions, involving bile and pancreatic acids, enzymes, and transport proteins for absorption and utilization within the body. Unfortunately, these body processes may be less efficient in individuals with certain health conditions, and also depend on individual enzyme activity levels and dietary considerations. To support optimal absorption in light of these challenges, this product provides vitamin A in micellized form, using a unique process to create extremely small, water-soluble arrangements that may be more easily absorbed and assimilated.*
Vitamin A Drops can be conveniently mixed with foods or liquid and allow maximal control of dosing to meet individual needs. Each single drop provides 1,500 mcg RAE of vitamin A palmitate and 7 mcg RAE of beta-carotene (known as “provitamin A”), a phytonutrient with vitamin A activity. Carotenoids such as beta-carotene are the primary form of vitamin A found in plants. These compounds can be converted within the body into vitamin A as needed. On the other hand, preformed vitamin A includes retinol and retinyl esters (such as the vitamin A palmitate in this product), which naturally occur only in animal products. The vitamin A palmitate used in this product is synthetic and suitable for vegetarians.*
As a dietary supplement, carefully dispense one drop and take by mouth daily or use as directed by your healthcare professional. Do not put in eye.
Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner prior to use. Do not use if shrink band is broken or missing. Bottle band is separate and can be left on the bottle to protect from leakage.
