Abidec drops are a multivitamin preparation, containing the fat-soluble vitamins A (retinol) and D2 (ergocalciferol) and the water-soluble vitamins C (ascorbic acid), B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (nicotinamide or niacin) and B6 (pyridoxine).
Vitamins are substances that are required by the body in very small amounts to maintain healthy growth and development and are in involved in numerous biological activities in the body.
With the exception of vitamin D, vitamins cannot be produced by the body and are therefore obtained solely from the diet. Lack of sufficient quantities of any of these vitamins in the diet can result in specific vitamin deficiency diseases. Vitamin deficiencies can sometimes produce serious consequences, particularly in babies and children. For instance, a deficiency of vitamin D can lead to soft, poorly developed bone (rickets), causing stunted growth.
While most healthy adults will receive all the vitamins they need from a good diet, growing children have higher vitamin requirements, which may not always be met by their diet, particularly if they are going through a fussy stage. Abidec drops can be given to babies and children to supplement vitamins acquired in the diet and help prevent vitamin deficiency disorders.
