Tropical vacations are something we might manage once a year, but what about the other 50 weeks? Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), is known as the “sunshine vitamin” because it is easily synthesized by the body when the sun’s UVB rays strike the skin. Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium and phosphorus to keep bones and teeth strong and protect against disease.
Vitamin K2 is a fat soluble vitamin essential for normal blood clotting and bone metabolism. There are three different forms of vitamin K: K1 (phytoquinone), K2 (menaquinone), which can be made by natural bacteria in the intestines, and K3 (menadione), a synthetic version of vitamin K. Clinical research has demonstrated significant protection of bone strength with the K2 form of vitamin K.
Menaquinone-7 (MK-7) is an effective activator of osteocalcin, the protein essential for calcium deposition in bone. It works synergistically with vitamin D3 to help influence mineral strength in bones and teeth.
CanPrev’s D3 & K2 has been reformulated with K2Vital, a unique form of MK-7 that is soy-free, plant sourced, and 100% trans form, yielding a pure, bio-active form of vitamin K2 MK-7. The D3 & K2 softgels are suspended in a medium chain triglyceride base made from organic coconut oil. Coconut oil is a stable fatty acid that enhances the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients, such as vitamins D and K. Get the benefits of a sunshine vacation every day of the year with CanPrev’s D3 & K2 softgels.
D3 & K2 assists the body in the absorption and utilization of calcium and supports the development and maintenance of bones and teeth.
Adults - Take one softgel per day with food as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
