Has your doctor recommended you take vitamin D? This blend includes 5000 IUs of fat-soluble vitamin D, one option for a therapeutic dose for those who are chronically deficient, 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 plays a role in numerous biological processes affecting organs and tissues throughout the body, including those involved with immune function. Our own body’s production of GG naturally declines during aging and the use of certain pharmaceutical drugs, like statins. Finally, this product combines quillaja extract with medium-chain triglycerides for improved nutrient bioavailability.
Note: Please consult your health-care provider before using this product if you are taking Coumadin, warfarin, or any other anticoagulant medications.
