Vitamin D3

Vitamin D comes in different forms, and vitamin D3 is considered to be better than vitamin D2 at raising and maintaining adequate vitamin D levels in the general population. 


Most people think of strong bones and teeth when they hear the word vitamin D. This is because vitamin D enhances calcium absorption in the gut, another key mineral for bone health.


Vitamin D also plays a role in immune function by enhancing the activity of certain white blood cells, a kind of cell that's part of your immune system. 


Our vitamin D3 supplement is made from lichen which is a combo of fungi and alga. Conventional vitamin D3 supplements are typically made from lanolin, which is a substance extracted from sheep's wool. 


A daily dose of 600-2000 IUs (which is what we provide) is considered to be a sufficient amount to maintain normal vitamin D levels in non-pregnant people*


*the recommended daily need for vitamin D during pregnancy is 600 IUs, however research suggests pregnant people have healthier outcomes at higher doses. More on that here 

Vitamin K2

Vitamin K is needed for proper blood clotting and bone formation. Blood clotting may sound scary, but it's actually a crucial bodily function. Without sufficient vitamin K, even a minor cut could lead to too much blood loss. Vitamin K plays a central role in the bodily processes required to maintain bone strength. 


The most common forms of vitamin K are K1 and K2. Some research suggests K1 is not as well absorbed or retained in the body as K2. K1 is found primarily in dark green leafy vegetables. K2 is found in fermented foods, some meats, cheese, and is also produced by your gut bacteria. 


There are different types of vitamin K2 and some research suggests that the MK-7 form of vitamin K2 is better absorbed and stays in the body longer than other forms of vitamin K2. Natto (a type of fermented soybean) is particularly rich in vitamin K2 in the MK-7 form, and is the source of vitamin K2 in our supplement. 

Why take a vitamin D3+K2 combo supplement

Vitamin D and vitamin K have been found to have a synergistic relationship in the context of maintaining bone health. While vitamin D enhances calcium absorption, vitamin K is believed to help divert calcium away from soft tissues such as blood vessels, and instead direct it to where it needs to be— in your bones!


It's suggested that this diversion effect of vitamin K may help prevent the stiffening of blood vessels, such as arteries for example. This is significant because stiffened blood vessels are a well known characteristic of chronic diseases including heart disease and kidney disease.

How to take this supplement

Both vitamin D and K are fat soluble nutrients. This means that the presence of fat is needed for their absorption. For that reason it's recommended to take this supplement with food or a meal containing fat. 

What the research says

Vitamin D3 is the preferred choice for raising and maintaining vitamin D levels.
