What does Vitamin D3 do?
Vitamin D3 plays an important role in bone health - without it, our bodies cannot absorb calcium which is critical for strong bones. It's also needed for muscle function, as well as healthy, balanced immune system function. Low vitamin D levels, which are common amongst the UK population, particularly during winter, may compromise our immune response and leave us at risk of infection. Because it helps to balance the immune system, it's important for those with over-active immune systems too.
Why is vitamin K2 included?
Vitamin K contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, working synergistically with vitamin D to ensure that calcium is not only absorbed but sent to our bones where we need it the most. Vitamin K is also needed for normal cardiovascular function. There are two forms of vitamin K, K1 and K2, and it is K2 that has demonstrated more beneficial effects on our bones, compared to K1.
Why choose our Vitamin D3 with K2?
Choosing a supplement that combines both Vitamin D3 with K2 means you are getting the benefit of two 'partner' ingredients working together to support bone health as well as offering other benefits such as support for the normal function of the immune system. Here, the preferred and most effective forms of Vitamin D and K2 respectively are included in therapeutic amounts to maximise efficacy by making it easier for the body to absorb and utilise. The liquid form means that it's easy to take more or less to suit individual requirements. The product is also allergen free.
Who is it suitable for?
This formula is particularly suitable for those who wish to support healthy bones; it is also ideal for adults and children over the age of 1 who want to ensure adequate intake of vitamin D3. The UK government recommends that everyone over the age of 1 should be taking 10mcg (400iu) of vitamin D daily. Vitamin D3 with K2 is suitable for children from age 1 at a dose of 1 drop per day. The dose should be adjusted according to age and bodyweight.
Where is the Vitamin D sourced from?
