Cholecalciferol (D3) 1000ui
Vitamin D3 is synthesized when UVB light interacts with cholesterol on the surface of our skin. In certain latitudes of North America, its only possible to get Vitamin D from the sun between the months of April-to-September. In order to maintain adequate vitamin D  status, we must turn to supplementation. Supplemental vitamin D3 in this formulation is VegD3® Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) from a 100% non-GMO plant source. VegD3® ingredients are registered with the Vegan Society and are Kosher & Halal certified. The source is algae commonly consumed in foods globally. Vitamin D is essential to a plethora of biological functions. It helps control genetic expression, immune function, calcium metabolism, mineral absorption and has been implicated in athletic performance. A deficiency of this vitamin has been implicated in more frequent occurrence of cancer and autoimmunity.

Vitamin K2 MK7. (from Natto, fermented soy) 60mcg
This vitamin is rarely found in Western countries’ diet and doesn’t get enough mainstream attention. This powerful nutrient plays an essential role in many aspects
of your health. Vitamin K was discovered in 1929 as an essential nutrient for blood coagulation (blood clotting) by a Danish nutritional scientist named Dr. Henrik Dam. The initial discovery was reported in a German scientific journal, where it was called “Koagulations vitamin” (Danish for coagulation) which is where the “K” comes from.
Vitamin K activates proteins that play a role in blood clotting, calcium metabolism
and heart health. One of its most important functions is to regulate calcium deposition. In other words, it promotes bones calcification and prevents calcification in blood vessels and kidneys. Vitamin K2 activates matrix GLA protein (MGP) in the blood which inhibits calcification of arteries and other soft tissues. The calcium paradox linking bone and cardiovascular health to Vitamin K2 deficiency can explain why high intakes of dietary calcium can still lead to poor bone mineral density, as well as cause arterial calcification. Without vitamin K2 to activate the calcium-transporting matrix GLA protein, dietary calcium cannot properly mineralize the bones and instead builds up in the soft tissues of the blood vessels.
