DESCRIPTION

Vitamin A Supplement

Vitamin A is essential supplement for all mammals. Preformed vitamin A is a group of fat-soluble compounds of animal origin called retinoid. It is found in eggs, milk products and animal liver. In countries low in foods derived from animals, carotenoids from vegetables need to supply the requirements for Vitamin A. In Asia and Africa this can be 80% of the dietary intake and in the Western diet as much as 40% of dietary intake.

    Alpha and beta-carotene can be converted to Vitamin A by an enzyme in the small intestine. Dietary preformed Vitamin A is absorbed in the upper part of the small intestine in a similar manner to fat absorption. Short chain retinal esters are hydrolysed by pancreatic lipase and long chain retinal esters by an enzyme in the cells of the small intestine. The released vitamin A (Retinol) is absorbed into the small intestine cells where it becomes bound to a protein (Retinol binding protein 2 ). This intracellular retinol is re-esterified and packaged into chylomicrons in the lymphatic system and then released into the general circulation. The chylomicrons are then hydrolysed by lipoprotein lipase and taken up by the tissues, usually by specific receptors, particularly in the liver, where it is stored.

    Intracellular retinol is converted to retinal and then to retinoic acid and catalysed by alcohol dehydrogenase enzymes. These enzymes act as regulators of tissue retinoic acid levels.

    Important

    It is important to make sure you are consuming the right amount of vitamin A. While too little of the vitamin can lead to deficiency, too much could lead to toxicity. Please consult your health practitioner if you are unsure of the appropriate amount, as this will be dependent on your age, gender and diet.

    This product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Formulation change: 

The Vitamin A Oil formulation has changed to using Avocado oil instead of sunflower oil.
Avocado Oil is the natural oil pressed from the pulp of an avocado. It is rich in Oleic acid (Omega 9), a monounsaturated fatty acid (similar to Olive Oil).Whilst it has a ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 of approximately 13:1, the Omega 6 content is relatively low. Sunflower Oil has a much higher Omega 6 content and, whilst the body needs Omega 6, it is pro-inflammatory.
