Vitamin A Drops by Seeking Health are a vegetarian liquid supplement providing 1,507 mcg RAE of vitamin A per single drop. This important nutrient plays an essential role in healthy immune function and vision, normal growth and development, and the health of skin and mucous membranes. Vitamin A Drops can be taken by anyone wishing to optimize their vitamin A intake or requiring supplemental vitamin A, especially those who have trouble swallowing traditional pills or capsules.
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.
