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 drops 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 Drops offer a convenient way to supplement this critical vitamin. Each drop of D3&K2 delivers 250IU of vitamin D3 and 30mcg 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.
These fat-soluble vitamins are suspended in a medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oilbase. MCT oil consists of stable fatty acids that enhance the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients. Get the benefits of a sunshine vacation every day of the year with CanPrev’s D3&K2!
