Vitamin D3 Supreme 5000 provides 5000 IU per veggie cap. It also contains both K1 and K2 (MK-7 form), which are highly bioavailable. Both of these forms of Vitamin K are important to our health: Vitamin K1 (which occurs naturally in veggies) and Vitamin K2, which is a product of soy fermentation (free of soy allergens) and has the special property of metabolizing slowly throughout the day.
This formula contains higher therapeutic doses where more aggressive supplementation is needed. In my patients, like to see vitamin D blood levels of between 70 – 100 ng/mL as optimal. Many patients will require a higher dose of vitamin D, especially patients with an autoimmune tendency or disease. Vitamins D and K are essential for bone, and arterial health, and for maintaining the immune system. It even does so much more. The amount of vitamin D and K in this formula may correct the deficiencies of a majority of patients that do not get adequate sun exposure and/or dietary sources of these vitamins.
Vitamin K is important for directing the transport of calcium into bone and teeth for optimal strength. Increasing the amount of vitamin D, with INADEQUATE levels of vitamin K, can increase the risk of calcium deposition in arteries and soft tissues. This can reduce arterial elasticity. Together, vitamin D and K make a great team. Made with non-GMO ingredients.
CAUTION: Vitamin K may adversely interact with anticoagulation drugs known as blood thinners. Patients taking these medications should be medically supervised while taking Vitamin D Supreme.
