TRULY NATURAL™ VITAMIN D: This meticulously-crafted formula combines the potent benefits of vegan vitamin D3, natural vitamin K2 (MK-7), and a whole foods blend to support immune function, bone health, the cardiovascular system, and a balanced mood in healthy individuals with already healthy immune function, bone and cardiovascular health, and balanced mood within the normal spectrum.*
We have chosen certified organic and sustainably wildcrafted reindeer lichen and non-GMO natto as the sources for these essential vitamins. Truly Natural Vitamin D also includes a blend of whole foods to help with bioavailability, absorption, and assimilation of vitamin D3 and K2.
Experience the transformative power of Truly Natural Vitamin D, a high-quality, premium vegan vitamin D3 supplement that is rigorously tested for purity and potency.
VEGAN VITAMIN D3 (Cholecalciferol): 4,000 IU (100 mcg), 500% Daily Value per serving. Reindeer lichen (Cladonia rangiferina) is a resilient organism (symbiotic relationship between a fungus and a green alga) found in great abundance in pristine environments of the Arctic regions, and contains vegan vitamin D3 in its purest form. Our vegan vitamin D3 is extracted from certified organic and sustainably wild harvested reindeer lichen using non-GMO ethanol. No harsh solvents are used and the vitamin D3 is tested for solvent residues and potency.
Truly Natural Vitamin D provides natural, plant-based vitamin D3 that is easily absorbed by your body, ensuring optimal utilization and maximum benefits. Combined with the incredible power of vitamin K2 (MK-7), a traditional Japanese fermented food that has been consumed in certain regions of Japan for 1,000 years, this formula provides a synergistic effect that promotes overall health and vitality.*
VITAMIN K2 (MK-7 (Menaquinone-7)): 250 mcg per serving. Vitamin K is a family of closely-related compounds each with their own diverse biological activity; it is not one single compound. In its natural form, vitamin K can mean vitamin K1 which is synthesized by plants and is present predominantly in green vegetables and algae and is the vitamin K that is most abundant in our diet. Vitamin K can also mean vitamin K2 which has several subtypes with each subtype being differentiated by its side chain length. Vitamin K2 is produced in our bodies, can be found in animal products, or can be synthesized by bacteria through the magic of fermented foods (e.g., sauerkraut, mature cheeses and curd, natto).
Vitamin K2, also known as menaquinone, is a type of vitamin K that plays a vital role in several aspects of health such as activating specialized proteins that regulate calcium metabolism in the arteries and bone.* Vitamin K2 exists as several subtypes from MK-4 through MK-13, and as one of two general lengths, short-chain (MK‐4 through MK‐6) and long-chain (MK-7 through MK-13). What makes the MK-7 form of vitamin K2 special is that research studies, to date, have demonstrated that MK-7 has the greatest efficacy as compared to vitamin K1 and the MK-4 vitamin K2 subtype because of MK-7s higher bioavailability, longer half-life in the blood circulation, and thus superior biological activity. With respects to natto, MK-7 is produced by the probiotic bacterium Bacillus subtilis subspecies natto. While MK-7 can be manufactured synthetically, nature knows best and, therefore, fermented food is really the best source of MK-7.
Accordingly, Truly Natural Vitamin D contains vitamin K2 (MK-7; menaquinone-7), extracted and purified from non-GMO natto. Non-GMO soybeans are fermented using Bacillus subtilissubspecies natto to produce the traditional Japanese food, natto. Natto is the richest known source of this vegan-friendly, naturally-occurring vitamin K2, almost all of which occurs as MK-7. For at least a thousand years, natto has been consumed in Japan as part of the traditional Japanese diet. When taken together, vitamins K2 and D3 have synergistic effects for bone and cardiovascular health as both vitamins play a vital role in calcium metabolism.*
WHOLE FOOD SUNSHINE BLEND: Nutrition is a team sport. Nutrients such as vitamins D3 and K2 require helper nutrients to make them be more absorbable and utilizable. Certified organic spirulina, organic chlorella, organic nettle leaf, organic shiitake (fruiting body), and organic maitake (fruiting body) mushroom extracts provide fatty acids, micronutrients, antioxidants, and beta-glucans which further help to support an already healthy immune system as well as promote nutrient absorption of vitamins D3 and K2 (MK-7).* Acerola cherry fruit juice provides 44% Daily Value of vitamin C per serving for adjunct immune support.*
The little-known fact about vitamin D is that it does not just help to absorb and assimilate calcium and phosphorus from the intestine, it also facilitates absorption of other essential elements as well: magnesium, copper, zinc, iron, and selenium. A quality vitamin D supplement will always include whole foods as part of the formula as sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals are fundamental to optimal biological function.*
VITAL HEALTH BENEFITS: Truly Natural Vitamin D plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health and well-being.* Here are some of the health benefits associated with vitamin D and vitamin K2 (MK-7):
Immune Function*: Vitamins D and K2 play a role in modulating immune responses and promoting immune system function.* There are vitamin D receptor sites found in most human cells and tissues, including various immune cell types such as monocytes, dendritic cells, B cells, and T cells.
Bone Health*: Vitamin D helps regulate calcium and phosphorus levels already within the normal range, promoting proper mineralization and bone growth.* Vitamin K2 (MK-7) works synergistically with vitamin D to ensure that calcium is properly utilized and directed to the bones, thus contributing to bone mineralization and strength.*
Heart/Cardiovascular Function*: Vitamin D acts as an antioxidant and adequate vitamin D levels have been linked to heart and cardiovascular health.* Vitamin D also plays a role in protecting endothelial cells and modulating endothelial function.* The endothelium is a thin membrane composed of a single layer of cells which line the inside of the heart as well as all blood (arteries, veins and capillaries) and lymphatic vessels. Additionally, vitamin K2 (MK-7) also helps supports cardiovascular health as MK-7 helps activate otherwise inactive proteins called matrix Gla proteins.* The active form of matrix Gla protein acts as a gatekeeper and regulator of calcium in the arteries and soft tissues.*
Mood Support*: Vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin. In response to adequate and safe exposure to the sun, the body produces vitamin D. A good deal of people is simply not getting enough daily sun exposure due to our indoor lifestyle. This highlights the importance of supplemental vitamin D intake, especially over the winter months. In healthy individuals with an already balanced mood, maintaining sufficient vitamin D levels in the body are as important for sustaining mental health as it is for sustaining physical health.*
