Tropical vacations are something we might manage once a year, but what about the other 50 weeks? Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium and phosphorus to keep your bones and teeth strong and protect against disease. Supplements are made from one of two forms - D2 or D3. CanPrev only uses vitamin D3 in their softgels and here’s why.
Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is photosynthesized in plants, mushrooms and yeasts and used typically in vitamin D fortified foods and some supplements. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), is known as the “sunshine” vitamin and is easily synthesized by the body when the sun’s UVB rays strike the skin. It is the most natural form of vitamin D and offers superior absorption compared to vitamin D2.
CanPrev’s D3 & K2 Softgels offer a convenient way to supplement this critical vitamin. Each softgel of D3 & K2 delivers 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 and 120 mcg of vitamin K2, or menaquinone-7, a potent form of vitamin K derived from natto, or fermented soy. Menaquinone-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 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.
Each softgel contains
|Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol)||25mcg/1000IU|
|Vitamin K2 (natto-derived menaquinone-7)||120mcg|
