Ingredient List Data - Advanced Supplementation
Vitamin A: (25% as vitamin A palmitate; 75% [15,000 IU] as beta-carotene) 20,000 IU
Vitamin A palmitate helps to promote vision, bone growth, cell division, reproduction, and cell differentiation. It also helps to fight infections by first regulating the immune system and the production of white blood cells which destroy harmful bacteria and viruses in the body. Secondly, it promotes the healthy growth of skin and mucous membranes and surface linings of the respiratory system, eyes, urinary, and intestinal tracts...all of which are essential for preventing bacteria and viruses from entering the body.
The safest and most abundant source of Vitamin A is Beta-Carotene. Your body converts only as much Vitamin A as it needs from the Beta-Carotene, therefore toxic overdoses of Vitamin A from Beta-Carotene cannot occur.
Vitamin C: (ascorbic acid) 1,000 mg
Vitamin C, a wate-soluble vitamin also knows as ascorbic acid, is essential for collagen formation, antioxidant activity, iron absorption, synthesis of cell compounds, and immune system function.
- Collagen production is vital for strengthening bone and blood vessels, which in turn work to expedite the healing of wounds.
- Antioxidants are responsible for protecting cells from free radical damage.
- Proper iron absorption aids the body in healing from wounds and burns.
- Vitamin C is important for the synthesis of epinephrine and norepinephrine, both essential in helping the body deal with mental and physical stress.
- Vitamin C plays a vital role in the function of the lymphocytes in the immune system. Lymphocytes are white blood cells that aid in fighting unhealthy bacteria and viruses.
Vitamin D3: 2,050 IU
Vitamin D3 is the natural human form of vitamin D. Once absorbed through your skin or consumed in foods, vitamin D is converted into its most active form, calciferol, by the liver and kidney. Once this conversion takes place, vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium – important in the formation and maintenance of strong bones.
A lack of vitamin D can put you at a higher risk for developing thin, soft, brittle bones. Vitamin D's ability to aid in the absorption of calcium also helps to prevent skeletal diseases such as rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Recent research indicates that vitamin D supplementation may provide relief from many inflammatory ailments such as psoriasis.
Only a few foods naturally contain significant amounts of vitamin D: fish liver oils, such as cod liver oil; fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, eel, eggs, and beef liver. Vitamin D production is triggered by exposure to sunlight.
However, being outside under sunny skies does not always mean that vitamin D is produced. It is UVB (ultra violet B) sunlight, specifically, that triggers vitamin D production, and the sun must be high in the sky for UVB rays to reach ground level.
Vitamin E: (as vitamin E succinate) 202 IU
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin most commonly found in nuts, vegetable oils, fortified cereals, and green leafy vegetables.
In its most active form, Vitamin E aids in protecting cells against the free radical by-products of energy metabolism. Free radicals have been linked to damaging cells, which may contribute to cardiovascular disease and cancer. Vitamin E's ability to limit the damage from free radicals may help to prevent or delay the onset of these diseases. Vitamin E has also been shown to benefit DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) repair, metabolic processes, and immune function.
