Vitamins D3, K2 (MK-7) and A - derived from plant-based sources suitable for vegans.
The Vitamin D3 in this product is derived from algal sources (rather than relying on Vitamin D3 from lanolin from sheep’s wool) so is suitable for vegans.
Nutrigold's Vegan Vitamin D3+K2+A formulation delivers a blend of synergistic fat-soluble vitamins (900μg Vitamin A; 100μg Vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7; 50μg (2000iu) Vitamin D3).
Vitamins do not work in isolation; Vitamin K2 works synergistically with Vitamin D and Vitamin A supplementation alongside Vitamin D3 avoids unbalanced excess or artificial deficiency of either vitamin.
Specifically, Vitamin D contributes to:
- Normal growth and development of bones in children.
- Maintenance of normal bones, teeth and muscle function.
- Normal absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorus.
- The normal function of the immune system.
Vitamin K contributes to:
- Normal blood clotting.
- Maintenance of normal skin, bones, red blood cells and vision.
- Maintenance of normal vision.
- Reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
- Protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Vitamin K2 as Menaquinone-7 (MK-7) is better absorbed than Vitamin K1. The structure of MK-7 also allows this form to remain in the blood longer than Vitamin K1, increasing its bioavailability.
Vitamin A contributes to:
- Normal iron metabolism.
- Maintenance of normal mucous membranes, skin and vision.
- The normal function of the immune system.

We believe supplements and all wellbeing products should use high quality, effective ingredients. We aim to sell products and choose brands that meet our personal standard for quality and ideally contain naturopathic and, where possible, organic ingredients.
The majority of our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, however we do stock some products like fish oils, etc. which means our full range is not vegetarian. We clearly identify these in the product listings.
Choosing Quality Supplements
We always look for products containing very high quality ingredients with good bioavailability (how well a product is utilised by the body).
All too often we see cheap supplements, which although they may have the required dosage of the active ingredients in terms of numbers listed, they may have a low bioavailability due to being more refined or combined with poor quality additional ingredients to form tablets, or even make them appear more appetising.
Additional ingredients in cheaper supplements are often unnecessary or impact the absorption of the supplement you take, so it is important not only to check the dosage of your chosen active ingredients, but also ensure any other ingredients are good for you, too. It is the additional ingredients that can often contain allergens or make a product non-vegan, for example.
