The vitamin A in this product, derived from fish liver oil, is highly bioavailable.
Healthy skin, eyes and bones require adequate vitamin A. Vitamin A plays an important role in building and maintaining iron-sufficient blood. Vitamin A is involved with gene expression of proteins (e.g. keratins, protein receptors) and enzymes.*
One of vitamin A’s most important roles is in immune function. Vitamin A improves the integrity of mucosal and epithelial cells. It supports healthy collagen production and skin tissue rejuvenation.*
Vitamin A is one of the fat-soluble vitamins and naturally occurs in eggs, whole milk, butter, meat and fish liver.
In the body, it is stored in the liver, eyes, kidneys, lungs and adrenal glands.
Who can benefit?
Everyone needs some vitamin A, and those with poor nutrition and excessive alcohol intake tend to have increased needs. Seniors may have additional need for vitamin A.*
