Highest bioavailable (absorbable) form
An insufficient of vitamin D level is a common trait especially in countries further away from the equator and in winter. A balanced and diverse diet can help prevent a deficiency, but most of the time it’s not enough. Ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) are found in mushrooms and animal products as they make vitamin D in the same way as humans do, with the exposure to sunlight (UV radiation). D3 is the substance form which our body naturally makes through UV radiation, which means that it has the highest bioavailability (the ability to be absorbed by our body). Just as vitamine K2’s highest bioavailable substance form is menaquinone 7.
D3 & K2 combined
Vitamin D improves the absorption of calcium*. Though, this can have a problematic effect when vitamine D is supplied in higher dosages (over 75 mcg), which is occasionally prescribed to reach a certain level of health promoting effects (think of severe deficiencies). This sun vitamin improves the calcium absorption, but doesn’t regulate the transport of all this extra calcium. This could potentially result in calcium deposits in the kidneys and blood vessels. This is when blood brother K2 comes into play. This calcium distributor takes care of transporting the extra absorbed calcium to the right location where it serves an optimal function, the bones*.
Countless health promoting effects
The idea that vitamine D is found in your diet as well sounds great, but the amount is negligible. to give you an idea, you need to eat 500 gram of wild salmon a day to provide your body with enough vitamin D. So, the sun is a much better source, but in a lot of countries further away from the equator the strong isn’t strong enough year round. A rule of thumb is that you need to be bigger than your shadow. This means that if the sun isn’t high enough, its UV radiation isn’t strong enough for your skin to make vitamin D. So, especially in the darker months, supplementing the important sun vitamin seems to be a necessity, rather than a luxury. The health promoting effects of vitamin D are endless. It supports the cell devision, calcium absorption in the bones and is great for the muscles*. On top of that it has a positive influence on our immune system en supports the maintenance of strong bones.*
Sunflower oil, which is more suitable than olive oil
When it comes to baking and frying olive oil is a healthier choice, a conclusion we don’t need really need to dive into anymore. Though, the amount of sunflower oil is such a small dosage that we can hardly really talk about health promoting facts of the carrier oil. So, you’ll probably want to know why sunflower oil is the carrier? It’s because K2 settles in olive oil. This results in a disproportional amount of K2; one daily dosage would contain more K2 than the other. So, the solution is sunflower oil in which K2 doesn’t settle, which results in a consistent proportion of K2 and D3 in every drop.
