Brief Summary of Product Information
AquADEKs® Softgels are a complete nutritional supplement specifically designed to meet the needs of cystic fibrosis patients and those who have difficulty absorbing fat-soluble vitamins and nutrients.* AquADEKs® uses microsphere technology to enhance the absorption of this antioxidant rich multivitamin and mineral supplement.*
Formulated to meet the consensus nutritional guidelines for Cystic Fibrosis and incorporating the latest scientific evidence, AquADEKs® Softgels contain important antioxidants, such as coenzyme Q10, beta-carotene, and gamma-tocopherol (a component of the mixed tocopherols). Research indicates that CF patients have lower than normal levels of these antioxidants which can lead to increased oxidative damage. This product also contains enhanced vitamin D and K levels to support improved bone health. In addition, AquADEKs® Softgels contain selenium, which is an essential cofactor for the body’s own antioxidant system, and zinc, which has been shown to be deficient in CF patients.*
AquADEKs® forms micellar-like spheres that provide fat-soluble vitamins in a form that can be readily absorbed even when there is impaired digestion or impaired liver function.*
AquADEKs® Softgels may be used to supplement levels of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K and other essential antioxidants and nutrients in children and adults who do not absorb sufficient amounts from their diets.*
Deficiencies of one or more fat-soluble vitamins may occur in individuals whose diets are deficient in these vitamins or who for any number of reasons have difficulty in absorbing fats from their diets. Any condition that diminishes the function of the pancreas, the liver, or the digestive system can cause malabsorption. Fat-soluble vitamins can only be absorbed after they are incorporated into micelles through the actions of the body’s bile and pancreatic secretions. These micelles are spherical particles that have lipophilic (fat-loving) interiors encapsulated by hydrophilic (water-loving) exteriors that facilitate absorption of fat-soluble vitamins in the body.*
