Plant-based food sources do not contain directly bioactive vitamin A. Instead, they supply the vitamin's precursor, beta-carotene, which can be converted by the body into vitamin A. This formulation supplies active vitamin A in the form of retinyl acetate, a compound which is directly metabolised to bioactive vitamin A in the body. The premium active ingredient – ultra-pure, pharmaceutical grade retinyl acetate – is completely free from common solvent residues from the manufacturing process. In addition, unlike many active ingredients for retinyl palmitate, ours is 100% vegan; no animal-derived ingredients are used to produce this product.
Since vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin, it exhibits the highest bioavailability in an oily solution. We start with highly concentrated vitamin A suspended in sunflower oil, then dilute it with high-quality MCT oil from coconut to achieve the desired dosage.
Our airtight and leak-proof GreenCaps help protect the selected oil-based raw materials from oxidation. The capsule shells are filled using nitrogen gas and then hermetically sealed, ensuring optimal freshness and extending the product's shelf life. Unlike most other HPMC capsules on the market, our GreenCaps are 100% free from controversial additives such as carrageenans, PEG and gelatine. They are vegan, gluten free and allergen free. Once the capsules are ready, we package them in environmentally friendly amber glass jars.
