Does anyone have any knowledge about whether our children are not suppose to receive any Vitamin A Palmitate in thier diets? I thought that when I was reading information about Natural Vitamin A (Cod Liver Oil) supplementation for the G-Alpha Defect that I read that Dr. Megson had said we should stay away from it and not give our children anything that has it Vit. A Palmitate) added to it. I recently looked at the ingredients listed in Rice Milk we are giving my son who is on the GFCF diet and realized Vit. A Palmitate is added to it! Also to the instant oatmeal I was giving my son almost daily for a long period of time before he went on the GFCF diet. We have to be so careful! I thought that the info I read said that Vit.A palmatite does something to the chemistry of the brain in a bad way and causes behavioral problems. Can anyone elaborate on this?
