KD Ultra Vegan D3 and Full-Spectrum K - 90 Capsules
SKU: SUPPLEMENTS.:AA KD Ultra 30
Why You Need It
KD Ultra combines 2,500 IUs of vegan Vitamin D3 with a full-spectrum blend of the available Vitamin K2 chains (referred to as menaquinones) MK4, MK6, MK7 and MK9 (MKs) as well as Vitamin K1 for the ultimate health benefits of each component, including support for immune function, cardiovascular health and strong bones.*
Additionally, because Vitamins D and K are fat soluble (meaning they dissolve in fat), KD Ultra adds the enzyme lipase to break down ingested fats, allowing your body to properly release the vitamins from fat and absorb them efficiently. That means no more missing out on all the perks of taking your vitamins!
Why should I take KD Ultra?
Vitamin D is often overlooked when it comes to its effects on the immune system. Most people may think they get adequate levels through exposure to sunlight or the amount added to fortified foods. Although Vitamin D can be obtained naturally through sun exposure, several factors make it challenging to get enough of this vital nutrient from the sun alone. Few people spend enough regular time outdoors, and their UVB sun ray exposure is further reduced by factors of seasonal variations of the sun altitude, time of day, day length, cloud cover, smog, shade, sun block, geographic region. All these impact the real amount of UVB exposure and the potential for reduced Vitamin D production. Also, dark-skinned individuals produce less Vitamin D than their light-skinned counterparts in the same time period and need more sun. Additionally, the thinner skin of older adults does not produce as much Vitamin D as younger people. Due to these numerous issues, over 40% of earth’s people may be deficient in Vitamin D.*
Vitamin D is not very extensive in foods outside of seafood and dairy products. Until recently it was not available from a plant source where now a rich source of Vitamin D3 can be obtained from lichen.
Why Vegan D3?
KD Ultra includes vegan Vitamin D3 (the natural form produced by the skin upon exposure to sunlight) from reindeer lichen.
Lichens are naturally occuring organisms found throughout the world and can best be described as a fungi-algae sandwich, two different organisms that live together as one. The fungi also protect the algae which allows lichens to grow in some of the most extreme environments the world can offer.
A majority of supplemental Vitamin D3 is chemically stripped from lanolin, a yellow waxy oil found in sheep's wool and then irradiated to produce D3. This naturally-derived D3 from lichen, is a much cleaner and natural form of this vital nutrient.
KD Ultra offers a broad-spectrum Vitamin K2 blend as well as 2,500 IUs of vegan-friendly sourced D3 per capsule.
BONE AND JOINT
Vitamin K2 plays an essential role in bone health through the involvement in the production of bone proteins. Vitamin D is essential for strong bones as well because it helps the body use calcium appropriately, without D, the body can only absorb between 10-15% of its dietary calcium. Adequate levels of Vitamin D help the body with calcium absorption, bone health, and immune function. *
Vitamin K2 (menaquinones) may also play an essential role in cardiovascular health. The buildup of calcium in blood vessel walls, known as calcification, can reduce their flexibility. An adequate intake of Vitamin K promotes a proper use of calcium in the body with reduced blood vessel calcification and a reduced risk of cardiovascular complications. Accordingly, a high intake of MKs, particularly MK7 and MK9, can help support the heart. MK7 is specifically associated with decreased blood vessel stiffness.
Vitamin K1 also plays a critical role in blood clotting. Without enough Vitamin K1, excessive bleeding can occur, particularly during injury or surgery.
A full-spectrum Vitamin K supplement is important, as the various kinds of Vitamin K support different functions in the body, and not all have even been thoroughly researched yet!
