Info: 30 ml
This concentrated liquid multivitamin contains the four types mentioned in its acronym -- vitamins A, D, E and K (in two forms), supplying 375 mcg (1,250 IU) of vitamin A; 25 mcg (1,000 IU) of vitamin D3; 20 mg (30 IU) of vitamin E, and 100 mcg of vitamin K (as K2 menadione and K1 phytonadione in a 1:1 ratio), per serving.
These are all fat-soluble vitamins which have extremely low solubility in aqueous media like water or stomach acid, which means ordinarily, we can only absorb them well if they're suspended in fat and broken down by our bile. Trouble is, not everyone has adequate or proper bile function, so some supplements compensate for this by using nanotechnologies such as ionic surfactants to help increase their bioavailability, but those run the risk of damaging cell membranes or causing "leaky gut". Bio-ADEK-Mulsion does not contain such surfactants or "tweens", but nor does it rely on bile. Instead, it provides micro-emulsified nutrients which can be taken up completely by the lymphatic system (the normal route of oily micronutrient uptake prior to serum distribution), in a true oil and water emulsion like the one in their related D-Mulsion product.
Vitamins A, D, E and K play a considerable number of roles in the body. Collectively, they are sources of antioxidants, and help develop and/or maintain: eyesight (including night vision); bones and teeth; skin, (mucous) membranes and immune function; normal iron metabolism; calcium and phosphorus absorption and use; and normal cell division. Individually, both vitamins A and D3 are important for immune function, while vitamins D and K are important for bone health, and vitamins D3, E and K2 are important for cardiovascular health, and vitamin E plays an important role in the formation of red blood cells.
Some conditions, populations, or health objectives or circumstances this highly bioavailable source of fat-soluble vitamins would be indicated for include: bone healing, calcium and magnesium synergist, free radical issues, hypovitaminosis D, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, neuromuscular disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, parathyroid dysfunction, and for those who avoid sunshine or are house-bound.
