What is A-Mulsion?
Vitamin A Mulsion is a natural lemon-flavored, emulsified form of Vitamin A. It is emulsified using the unique WisDOM-3 process, allowing for potential maximum absorption and utilization.
What’s an emulsion?
An emulsion is a way of combining fat (or oil) molecules with water molecules so that they make a single liquid. Salad dressing is a good example. If your dressing wasn’t emulsified or was sitting on a shelf for a long time, you would see a layer of oil on top of the water-based ingredients in the dressing. By shaking up your salad dressing before you use it, you’re creating an emulsion.
What is Vitamin A?
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin - which means that Vitamin A only gets into your body by tagging along with a fat molecule. You can’t produce vitamin A, but you can get it in liver, milk fat, cheese, and dairy products. It’s important to note that carotenoids (found in brightly coloured vegetables like carrots, peppers, and sweet potatoes) are not sources of vitamin A. They are considered pro-vitamin A, meaning that they can help your body produce vitamin A if you have a healthy gut.
Vitamin A takes on different forms in the body and can be converted back and forth between forms depending on what your body needs. When saved for later in your liver, Vitamin A takes the form of retinol. When it’s in use in the retina for low light and colour vision functions, it’s called retinal. When Vitamin A is oxidized it becomes retinoic acid and can’t be converted to the other forms in the body. Retinoic acid plays important roles in learning and memory, as well as sleep and circadian rhythms.
What are the benefits of Vitamin A?
- It supports your vision and eye health by helping to recycle pigments in the eye’s rod cells as well as protecting and maintaining the cornea and conjunctiva.
- That means you’re less likely to be affected by night blindness and age-related decline – like Macular Degeneration.
- It protects against certain diseases.
- Vitamin A is a potent antioxidant, which means that it fights free radicals that create oxidative stress in your body. Oxidative stress has been linked to diabetes, cancer, heart disease and cognitive decline.
- It boosts your immune system
- Heals all mucus membranes and the skin – which are large parts of your immune system (don’t forget the good it does for your intestines, lungs, bladder and inner ear)
- Supports the growth and distribution of T-cells (white blood cells that protect your body from infection)
- The help it provides to your skin also makes vitamin A helpful for acne and wrinkles
Why should I consider an emulsified version of vitamin A?
- One benefit to taking vitamin A drops is that drops are easier for some people to take than vitamins in pill or tablet form.
- It’s easier for your body to absorb
- It tastes way better than cod liver oil!
- This form of vitamin A can be especially helpful to people who struggle with celiac or gluten sensitivity
How do I know if I’m getting enough vitamin A?
If you have a vitamin A deficiency you may be experiencing:
- Disturbances in your vision
- Poor night vision
- Slow healing processes
- Recurring infections
- Leaky gut symptoms
How do I take vitamin A drops?
As a dietary supplement, take 1 drop daily by mouth, or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. For oral use only.
Can I take too much Vitamin A?Yes, you can. Fat-soluble vitamins are more likely to be stored in your body than water-soluble vitamins. Too much vitamin A stored in your body could become toxic. That’s why it is important to speak with your medical professional before adding a new supplement to your daily routine.
