Vitamin A is critical for vision, and supports cellular growth. It plays a role in the formation and maintenance of major organs (heart, lungs, kidneys). It is necessary for maintaining healthy skin, teeth, skeletal and soft tissue, and mucous membranes.
Bariatric Advantage Dry Vitamin A Capsules are an excellent choice for individuals suffering from vitamin A deficiency due to fat malabsorption issues. The water-miscible "dry" capsules are scientifically formulated to quickly deliver 10,000 IU of essential vitamin A to your system. Unlike some other forms of vitamin A, these small capsules are very easy to swallow.
Since vitamin A is essential for healthy bones, healthy skin, many aspects of eyesight and the process of cell division; inability to absorb this vitamin can have serious consequences. Early symptoms of vitamin A deficiency include night blindness and diminished immune system function. If you are suffering increased inability to see in dim light or suspect that your immune system is weak, please consult with your health care professional who can order blood tests to determine whether vitamin A deficiency is at fault. Do not use a vitamin A supplement of this potency without consulting your physician.
