Vitamin D3 plus K2 VEGAN combines 5000 IU (five thousand) natural vitamin D3 from lichen with 200 mcg of natural Vitamin K2 as all-trans MK-7 in one capsule. The combination of these two important vitamins in one capsule makes the daily intake of high dose Vitamin D3 and K2 very easy.
This Vitamin D3 plus K2 product was specifically developed for vegans, strict vegetarians and for those who prefer a take these two essential vitamins in 100% plant-based form.
Vitamin D3 is essential for strong bones, a cheerful mind and a strong immun system. Vitamin K2 regulates the calcium metabolism in the body and makes sure that calcium is deposited in the bones and not on the arteries.
Many people have an increased need for vitamin D, such as the elderly, children and people who do not go outside, have dark skin or are veiled. The Health Council advises to then use a supplement. In England they go a step further. Now that many people stay at home, the Public Health England advises everyone to take a vitamin D supplement on a daily basis.
If you supplement Vitamin D on a regular basis you have a higher demand for Vitamin K2. Because the uptake of calcium is increased if you take Vitamin D, the body produces more of the Gla-Proteins, which have the purpose to transport the calcium throughout the body.
But only Vitamin K2 can activate the Gla-Proteins. After activation, the calcium binds to the protein and is transported to those places in the body where it belongs, which the bones and the teeth.
At the same time, Vitamin K2 prevents the calcium from being deposited in the arteries and the soft tissues of the body. This means, Vitamin K2 prevents us from arteriosklerosis and protects the heart and arteries. Furthermore it works closely with Vitamin D to strenghten the bones and teeth.
Therefore, Vitamin D3 5000 plus K2 200 is a great product which combines sufficient amounts of these very important vital nutrients to profit from its many advantages.
The unique vegan Vitamin D3 comes from a special, organic plant source called Lichen. Lichens are small plant species consisting of a symbiotic association of a fungus with an algae.
This gives them unique attributes such as surviving in extreme climates and having the ability to grow and accumulate meaningful levels of useful nutrients, including Vitamin D3.
Lichen are like moss or small plants and can be found all over the world including the Arctic, Deserts, the ground in forests and all around us growing on trees, benches, rocks etc. There are many different species of Lichen.
For the production of Vegan Vitamin D3 a carefully selected strain of Lichen is used which is capable to produce Vitamin D3.
The vegan Vitamin D3 is sourced from an edible form of lichen that is wild harvested at locations in North America, Asia and Scandinavia.
This lichen that has been used in foods for centuries (and continues to be used today). The lichen is collected and washed at source, and then put through a multi-step process of purification, extraction and concentration.
Only water and alcohol is used to extract the Vitamin D3, whereas the alcohol is removed in a final production step.
Special care is applied during the whole extraction process to retain optimum stability of the Vitamin D3. In a special developed system the Vitamin D3 is extracted in a totally light, heat and moisture controlled environment.
This is done at the site where the sustainably grown lichen is obtained, to ensure optimum freshness. The lichen used is classified as a food ingredient with a long history of safety. Every batch is carefully tested to measure the exact level of Vitamin D3.
Vitamin D3 Vegan 5000IE plus K2 200mcg contains only natural vitamin K in its most effective form as all-trans Menaquinone-7 (MK-7), which is produced using natto cultures.
This form of K2 is optimally absorbed by the body and quickly reaches a high concentration in the blood. It has the highest possible bioactivity and bioactivity and is active in the body for up to 72 hours.
Vitamin K2 as MK-7 activates all vitamin K2-dependent Gla-proteins to maintain good health. In contrast to vitamin K1, it is also fully active outside the liver, making it ideal for building and maintaining bones and protecting the arteries.
The most famous GLA protein is Osteocalcin. You may have heard of osteocalcin in connection with bone density. What you might not have heard is that it requires vitamin K to work.
Undercarboxylated osteocalcin (Osteocalcin without vitamin K) can't regulate calcium. When this happens, calcium leaves the bones and teeth. Women with 'undercarboxylated osteocalcin' excrete calcium, and their bones are porous. Vitamin K reverses this trend.
Vitamin K controls calcium-regulating proteins that are present in vascular tissue. These vitamin K-dependent proteins (including osteocalcin and matrix GLA protein) have been shown to specifically inhibit vascular calcification, i.e. keep calcium out of the arteries.
Activation of these calcium-regulating proteins depends on the availability of vitamin K. When there is not enough vitamin K to turn on these proteins, the result is deposition of calcium into atherosclerotic plaque, thus worsening cardiovascular disease risk and leading to a condition that the lay public sometimes refers to as 'hardening of the arteries.
This helps explain why patients who take anti-coagulant drugs (like Coumadin®) that deplete vitamin K in the body suffer from accelerated arteriosclerosis.
