Vitamin D is in the news, buzzworthy and supportive of so many aspects of our health. We LOVE this blend because it includes 2000 IUs of fat-soluble vitamin D and fat-soluble vitamins K1 and K2 (as MK-4). These are ideal to take in tandem for proper calcium regulation (ie. sending it into the bones rather than soft tissues where it can clog arteries), and to support immunity and heart health. Research suggests that taking vitamin D and K together offer more support to bone and cardiovascular health than either vitamin alone.
The other secret sauce ingredient in this formula is geranylgeraniol (GG), a nutrient that is naturally found in olive oil and flaxseeds as well as some medicinal herbs. It’s synthesized internally in humans and declines naturally with age. Supplementation among the aging population on certain medications may be particularly beneficial, since some common medications inhibit this compound. GG is necessary for constructing cell membranes, producing energy in mitochondria, Finally, this product combines quillaja extract with medium-chain triglycerides for improved nutrient bioavailability.
