This dose of vitamin D is ideal for those who are deficient since you must take high doses over several months to correct a deficiency. Groundbreaking research on Vitamin D has been performed by Michael Holick, PhD, MD over the last 20 years and has shown that deficiency is at epidemic proportions the United States, and causing a number of our most common diseases!
Are you getting 2-3 hours of direct sunlight per week with no sunscreen? Although you can obtain vitamin D from the sun, we tend not to these days since we work indoors and are scared of sun exposure. The result is that 90% of the country is vitamin D deficient.
Consequences of vitamin D deficiency include:
- Generalized bone pain or isolated bone pain (Osteomalacia)
- Muscle aches
- Breast, ovarian, prostate, and colon cancer
- Leukemia in children
- Kidney disease or kidney stones
- High blood pressure
- Cardiovascular disease
- Autoimmune disease prevention (type I diabetes, MS)
- Weakened liver function
Research shows that activated Vitamin D inhibits cancer cell growth, so get your 2-3 hours of sun per week, or take your vitamin D!
This clinically useful dose of vitamin D3 and vitamin K (in both K1 and the MK-7 form of K2), is highly bioavailable. Both of these forms of Vitamin K are important to our health: Vitamin K1 (the naturally occurring form of vitamin K in vegetables) and Vitamin K2 as MK-7, 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 than Vitamin D Synergy for situations where more aggressive repletion is required. Most holistically oriented health care practitioners are aiming for vitamin D blood levels of between 50 - 100 ng/mL as optimal. Many patients will require a higher dose of vitamin D as found in Vitamin D Supreme to achieve this.
