Carlson's is always a great brand with quality nutrients. The beta carrotene is critical for lung protection and actuall kills cancer cells. I juse it to support my aging declining vision and to boost my immune system. The size of each gel is plenty for the doasage I need and goes well with the other Carlson products I take.
This is a high-quality, high potency supplemental vitamin A. The ingredient is a bioavailable form of vitamin A, which is very useful for the body. Contrary to cheap form of beta-carotens, that need to be converted by the body to vitamin A, this form (retinyl palmitate) is directly used by our organism. The dosage per capsule is high, which allows, when needed, to provide the body with some very high amounts in divided doses for 1-2 days, which allows not only immunoenhancing benefits, but also immune modulation and some testosterone receptor modulation as well. There is no unpleasant taste to the product, actually no taste at all, which is great as there are no added flavorings.
I take this at the first onset of a flu. I take a very high dosage as per Dr. Roby Mitchell's recommendation for the first 3 days which helps benefit your body's ability to ward off a virus. I like the fact that the main ingredient comes from cod liver oil and that they don't use soybean oil. It's easy to take and you won't taste any nasty fishiness either.
This is a good quality vitamin. I am taking on the first signs of illness per Dr. David Brownstein recommendation (look him up it may save your life!)
and upping my dose to 100,000 units of vitamin A. Beta carotene is a water-soluble form of vitamin A that does not provide the immune boosting benefits of vitamin A. For that, you need the fat-soluble form. So, make sure you’re taking emulsified vitamin A.
This high potency Vitamin A is particularly effective at fighting flu symptoms, particularly when taken in combination with natural vitamin E. The soft gels are by far the best way to take the vitamin A as they slip down the throat in an easy swallow.
