Why do people living with cancer recommend this product?
While undergoing radiotherapy my skin was very thin and fragile in certain areas. After consulting with my medical team, I decided to start taking vitamin A to help reduce the effect. I think it helped somewhat though my skin was still very raw.
What are the ingredients?
Soy bean oil (gm free), capsule shell (gelatine, glycerin), vitamin A acetate.

I've been using this product for 2 months now and noticed an improvement in the quality of my skin ( lesser outbreaks and blemishes ).
Good price for a very good product. Vitamin A is important to the immune system, the mucus membranes, the treatment of fibroids and many other health issues. Its is often overlooked by the medical profession.
This is becoming very difficult to source in mainstream shops these days, which I find surprising considering it is much more effective in staving off colds and flu and a great many other infections than the current 'vitamin du jour' - vitamin C. Having experimented for over 40 years with supplements, I've gotten to know each one's strengths and weaknesses and taking vitamin C when you have a cold will ease the symptoms to a certain degree, but tend to make the cold drag on longer than it would otherwise. Vitamin A, on the other hand, will nip the infection in the bud fairly instantly and, taken on a more regular basis, will prevent susceptibility to further infections. This product is well priced and I've purchased a few bottles recently to give to friends, because so many seem to have impaired immune systems at the moment and they're catching one thing after another. Just a note of caution, however, vitamin A should not be taken in large doses continuously, because it is one of the few vitamins which is stored by the body and overdosing will cause many of the problems that it would otherwise cure when kept at a healthy level. This is true for many vitamins and minerals - taking too much is as bad as not getting enough.
