Now Foods, A&D is a supplement containing vitamin A in the form of retinyl palmitate and natural vitamin D3 in the form of cholecalciferol extracted from lanoline. The ingredients contained in the preparation support the process of bone mineralization, positively influence the process of seeing and also play an important role in the proper functioning of the immune and nervous systems.
Common vitamin D deficits prove that its supply with diet and exposure to sun are not sufficient, therefore the preparation is recommended especially to people, whose diet is not rich in food being a good source of vitamin D and those who avoid sunlight. Moreover, the preparation is recommended to elderly people, among whom lower ability to synthesize vitamin D in skin is observed. The supplement is also addressed to people who want to take care of correct vision and improve the condition of skin, hair and nails.
Vitamin A is a common name for the group of chemical compounds which have a multidirectional effect on the organism, including: retinol, retinal, retinoic acid and also their further derivatives. The vitamin is soluble in fats and stored mainly in fatty tissue and liver.
The role of vitamin A
Vitamin A demonstrates strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects and also positively influences the condition of skin – stimulates the synthesis of melanin and collagen fibers, facilitates its regeneration and improves protective barrier as well as the condition of hair and nails. Moreover, it takes part in building visual purple – rhodopsin, thanks to which its proper level is important in the process of vision. Vitamin A is additionally responsible for the functioning of the immune system and influences the growth and development of the organism.
The symptoms of vitamin A deficits
Vitamin A deficit is manifested by: worse vision, increased susceptibility to infections, weakening of hair and nails structure, appetite loss and also increased desquamation and keratinizing of epithelium (hyperkeratosis) and dry skin.
Vitamin A – for whom?
The growth of the need for vitamin A is observed among others in the cases of long-lasting and frequent stress, remittent infections and also disorders in the functioning of the digestive tract. Moreover, low level of vitamin A appears in the case of applying low-fat diets. People who spend a lot of time in front of the computer’s screen and those who observe deterioration of vision should also take care of the proper supply of this vitamin. Vitamin A is also useful in dermatological disorders and in the situation of impaired wound healing.
Vitamin D is a compound soluble in fats. Vitamin D may be provided to the organism with diet (oily fish, fish oils, eggs, liver), as well as it may be synthesized in skin under the influence of sunlight.
The role of vitamin D
Vitamin D takes active part in regulating calcium-phosphorus balance, thanks to which it plays a key role in the process of bone mineralization and positively influences our nervous system. Moreover, this vitamin protects against harmful mutations, which may be the cause of cancer – vitamin D lowers the risk of the development of 17 cancers, including lung, prostate, breast and anal cancers. Another advantage of vitamin D is the fact that it strengthens the defense systems of the organism, has antibacterial effect and has neuroprotective properties, thanks to which it may mitigate the symptoms of the diseases of neurodegenerative origin.
The consequences of vitamin D deficits
Lowe level of vitamin D may result in the increased risk of the occurrence of chronic diseases (diabetes, circulatory diseases) and also cancers and autoimmunological diseases. Vitamin D deficits contribute to, among others, the development of rickets, osteomalacia and osteoporosis.
The factors influencing the needs for vitamin D
Vitamin D deficit is strongly connected with old age, insufficient supply with a diet and insufficient exposure to sunlight. Moreover, the risk of deficits is increased in obese people and also those, who suffer from genetic diseases as well as kidney and liver disorders. The increase of the needs for vitamin D is also observed in pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Summing up, Now Foods, A&D is a dietary supplement addressed to every person, whose diet is not rich in natural sources of vitamins A and D and also is poor in fats, which negatively affects assimilability of these vitamins.
Vitamin D supplementation is also important, because in our latitude, there is a low sunlight strength, which considerably limits its synthesis, especially in the fall-winter period. The preparation successfully supplements the deficits of vitamins A and D, therefore it should be a daily additive to your diet.
In the case of suspected vitamin A deficiency, it is recommended to take it in a daily dose of 10,000 IU (one capsule) for no longer than 2 months. This dose effectively makes up the deficiency and, among others, improves the eyesight and has a beneficial effect on the condition of the skin. The formula contains also vitamin D. The vitamins in the supplement act synergistically and supports the overall body function.
Both vitamin A and vitamin D are fat-soluble compounds. It is thus recommended to take them with a fat-containing meal.
