Thompson's high potency Vitamin A 10,000IU plays a major role in supporting immune function and assists in promoting healthy skin and eyes.

Vitamin A, the first recognised fat-soluble vitamin, is one that performs many important functions in the body. The most common are the promotion of good eyesight, bone growth and tissue healing, as a tonic to mucous membranes and to enhance immune function. Vitamin A’s role is essential for optimum vision in terms of the biochemical operation as well as the performance and ongoing health of the eye. Vitamin A deficiency initially appears as poor adaptation to changes in light and reduced night vision. In more severe cases, deficiencies can cause blindness and even death.

Vitamin A affects growth and development via its important role in the synthesis of many glucoproteins (eg: mucous), some of which control cell division and genetic expression. The effects of Vitamin A deficiency most readily appear as a breakdown in the mucous membranes that line the mouth and digestive system, the respiratory tract and genito-urinary tract.

Once referred to as the ‘anti-infective’ vitamin, Vitamin A has gained modern recognition as a major nutritional determinant of immune status. Immune system abnormalities associated with Vitamin A deficiency include impaired ability to launch an effective antibody response, decreased levels of helper T-cells, and alterations in the mucosal linings of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tract. Individuals with low vitamin A status are more susceptible to infectious diseases such as measles, chicken pox, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), AIDS and pneumonia.

Thompson’s high potency Vitamin A 10000iu capsules contain the retinol (synthetic) form of vitamin A, ideal for people who wish to avoid the normal animal based source of the vitamin.

Supplementation with Vitamin A can help to support healthy immune function, decreasing susceptibility to infections including those from viruses, colds, influenza, sinus and hayfever, asthma, rhinitis, eye and ear infections. Using Vitamin A supplements can relieve urinary tract infections, vaginitis, thrush and other mucous membrane inflammations.

Vitamin A is helpful in the treatment of skin disorders such as hyperkeratinization, acne, eczema and psoriasis. Eye problems may also benefit from using Vitamin A, such as difficulty adapting to light and dark, dry eyes and the more serious xeropthalmia.

Directions

Adults: Take one capsule a day (with food), or as professionally prescribed.

Precautions

Research has pointed out a connection between relatively low levels of pre-formed vitamin A and possible birth defects. To avoid any potential problems with Vitamin A during pregnancy use its safe precursor, beta-carotene. Toxicity can occur in adults who take in excess of 50,000iu’s daily for several years. Use with caution in individuals with liver damage, cirrhosis or hepatitis.

Each capsule contains:

  • Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate) 10000 IU 
    • equivalent Retinol 3000mcg

Awesome! Review by

Very good product. First time trying Vitamin A on its own, so I gave this a try. Works a charm, has done wonders for my face (annoying scars and mild acne) which is now a lot smoother than it was before, and my nails are stronger. On a different tangent, I find the shape very entertaining and I enjoy taking them. But that's just me.

This is a fantastic product. After only three days of using it, I saw results in the quality of my skin, and hair. I had been having skin problems but this has helped clean it up so much! Definitely recommend it.

I started taking this product when I read in 2 reliable sources that people who are hypothyroid cannot get their Vit A requirements solely from beta carotene. Also, one of the signs of Vit A deficiency is dry bumps on the upper arms. Within days of taking this product, my bumps disappeared & my skin is nice and smooth all over. I take it only 4 days/week as it is fat soluble and can build up. I wish I had started taking it years ago.

I suffer from psoriasis and did a bit of research on vit a and decided to try it. I take it for 3-4 days and then stop to make sure it's not building up in my liver, but have found a significant improvement in my skin since I started taking it last month.

This is a staple product for me. I take one every other day and find it keeps my skin and nails looking good. I also got recommended it by a pharmacist to take when feeling a cold/flu bug coming on - taking 3 a day for 3 days and then not taking it again for a few weeks (due to bioaccumulation of Vit A in liver). THIS WORKS! i swear by it now for this immunity function - its not just Vit C that is needed at these times, it seems. This is a very good price too.
