Vitamin D3 and K2 chewable soft gums
Taking vitamins D3 and K2 together is always recommended to promote the targeted distribution of calcium in the right places throughout the body. Vitamin D3 and K2 soft gums are not only designed to make an adequate supply of these two important vitamins available, their innovative dosage format also ensures taking them is a pleasant, fruity taste experience.
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is essential for the absorption of calcium from the intestine. If this vitamin is not made properly available or obtained through your food intake, this can lead to disorders in the regulation of your calcium-phosphate metabolism and may have implications for muscular energy and bone health.
Though vitamin D is the only vitamin the human body can both produce for itself and ingest from food, an undersupply is nevertheless quite common. One reason for this is the lack of solar radiation in Central Europe, especially during the winter months. Your body needs an adequate supply of sunlight to produce its own vitamin D. But in Germany, for example, it's only during the summer months that the sun's rays are usually intense enough to guarantee the body can produce its own vitamin D. [[D182]] [D183]]
Individual factors such as skin tone, the use of sunscreens, working indoors, make-up, and choice of clothing can also lead to less sunlight reaching the skin, and thus to an insufficient supply of vitamin D.
In addition, it can be difficult to get sufficient vitamin D through your daily diet: only a few foods contain larger amounts of this vital component – such as herring, salmon, and the yolk of hen's eggs.
Vitamin D3 and K2 soft gums offer a practical solution for the provision of a healthy supply of vitamin D all year round: When taken regularly, this mode of consumption ensures this vitamin remains available regardless of an individual's diet and exposure to the sun.
Vitamin K2 (menaquinone) plays an important role in regulating blood clotting and also supports vitamin D in maintaining your calcium balance at a healthy level. [[D184]]
Vitamin K2 activates the proteins responsible for ensuring the calcium absorbed from the intestine by vitamin D is directed to the right places in the body. Working in conjunction with vitamin K2, these GLA proteins transport calcium to help form dental material and bone tissue. In addition, this interaction also prevents the storage of calcium in undesirable places such as in soft tissue and blood vessels.
Medical research now considers that an additional intake of vitamin D3 should ideally occur in combination with vitamin K2 in order to meet the increased need for vitamin K and reduce the deposition of calcium in soft tissue. [[D185]]
Vitamin D3 and K2 Soft Gums are ideal for this purpose: They contain a balanced mixture of these two important vitamins in a particularly tasty dosage format which provides a means to cover an increased need for vitamin D. In addition, they are also very easy to take when people are out and about, and their fruity raspberry taste offers a very pleasant chewing experience.
Vitamin D3 and K2 soft gums have an excellent safety profile. When taken at the recommended dosage, they do not contain any active ingredients or additives which could trigger side effects.
However, undesirable effects may occur if very large amounts of the product are taken over a long period of time. In order to prevent the occurrence of such undesirable effects, you should always carefully follow the recommendations when using this product.

Taking vitamin D3 and K2 soft gums is not recommended if you are taking coumarin-based anticoagulant medications because this could result in unwanted interactions. Therefore, always discuss any planned intake with your doctor in advance.
