Size: 60 Capsules (60 days)
Provides all fat soluble vitamins, which may be compromised in those with a low fat intake, in one convenient capsule.
Fat soluble vitamins have associated applications. For example, vitamins A, D and K are all essential in bone health.
Includes mixed tocopherols containing gamma-tocopherol plus tocotrienols complex containing alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocotrienols plus betacarotene and vitamin A.
Taking some fat soluble vitamins together can optimise their efficacy.
Fat soluble vitamin intake can be compromised. For example, up to 73% of Australians have insufficient vitamin D levels. Vitamin D from food sources is less biologically active and in insignificant amounts in most foods.
Vitamins A, D and K are essential for bone health. Vitamin A regulates the proliferation, differentiation and gene expression of chondrocytes, osteoblasts and osteoclasts which express the RXR receptor, shared by vitamin D. Both of these vitamins stimulate gene transcription of osteocalcin which binds calcium to new bone. Vitamin K helps in the transport of calcium.
A range of nutrient forms for improved efficacy. ADEK Essentials contains 2500 IU of vitamin A and the equivalent amount of betacarotene. ADEK Essentials also contains all eight isomers of vitamin E found in nature, including four tocopherols and four tocotrienols (alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-)
