Vitamin A & D [Vital Nutrition]. Vitamin A was the first vitamin to be discovered. It is essential in maintaining good vision and promoting normal growth. It occurs in animal tissues as retinol but in plants as carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. This vitamin is necessary for the health of epithelial cells and the immune system. It is also required for the digestion of protein. It is essential for lactation, reproduction and the formation of steroid hormones. It is used to form the cells lining the digestive, respiratory, reproductive and urinary tracts and in all tissue linings of the body. It is also vital for healthy skin and is a famous antioxidant. It is best absorbed when taken with oil or fat. Each capsule contains 10,000 IU of vitamin A derived from fish oils, or 200 percent of the Daily Value.
Vitamin D works synergistically with vitamin A. It plays a role in absorbing and regulating calcium and phosphorus. This vitamin helps the body synthesize protein and helps build strong bones, teeth and skin. It is vital to the health of the nervous system and kidneys. It can be derived from the sun’s action on oils secreted and reabsorbed by the skin. But if skin is tan or older, it is less capable of producing vitamin D.
Each capsule of Vitamin A & D contains 400 IU of vitamin D, which is 100 percent of the Daily Value.
CAUTION: If pregnant or planning pregnancy, daily vitamin A intake should not exceed 5,000 IU. Quantities in excess of 10,000 IU may result in reproductive hazards or birth defects.

Vitamin B-Complex [Vital Nutrition] was the second vitamin discov-ered. Many different vitamin B com-pounds are grouped under the name B-complex. These vitamins are easily lost in refining and cooking; they can also be washed from the body by coffee, tea, alcohol and heavy perspiration. Physically stressful conditions can also deplete the body of B vitamins. B-vitamins are particularly important for the nervous system and are also vital for good digestive function and enzyme reactions that control energy, circulation, hormones and overall health. Their actions are interdependent; so for greatest efficiency the complex should be taken together.Three capsules contain: % DV
