The Sunshine Vitamin

Vitamin D3’s scientific name is cholecalciferol, but you might know the D vitamin by another name: the “Sunshine Vitamin”. That’s because while you can find Vitamin D in fatty fish or fish oil, most of your Vitamin D comes from exposure to sunlight.

The common wisdom is that if you spend enough time in the sun, you’ll get your daily Vitamin D. Unfortunately, that’s often not the case, because:

  • You might live in a place where sunlight is limited
  • You may not be able to absorb enough Vitamin D
  • Modern lifestyles can limit time spent outside

Either way, that can often add up to a Vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D’s function is to help your body absorb calcium and to maintain healthy calcium levels in your blood. This keeps your bones and muscles strong, as well as your overall health.

What is K2

You’ll find Vitamin K2 in foods such as leafy greens, fermented foods, and some animal products like egg yolk, liver, or cheese. Your body needs K2 for blood clotting, which is why it’s called “K” - for Koagulationsvitamin (it’s discovery was first published in a German scientific journal). K2 also supports better bone and cardiovascular health.

But K2 isn’t a single, discrete vitamin. It has several subtypes, the most important being MK-4 and MK-7. Both have been used in nutritional supplements, but studies² show that MK-7 is more bioavailable than MK-4, which is why we use it.

But K2 also serves in a “supporting role” when working alongside D3, which is why it’s a vital part of our Micelle Liposomal D3 + K2.

D3 and K2: Calcium “Colleagues”

To help your body metabolise calcium in the right way, D3 and K2 work hand-in-hand. D3 helps to maintain adequate calcium levels in your blood, which it does by either:

  • Improving intestinal calcium absorption (i.e. from your diet)
  • Drawing from your body’s calcium supply (i.e. your bones)

Option 1 is preferred, drawing from the calcium reserves in your bones can lead to bone loss & osteoporosis over time.

While Vitamin D handles calcium levels, Vitamin K directs the calcium in your body to where it’s needed most. It activates a protein called osteocalcin that helps calcium accumulate in your bones and teeth while preventing it from being stored in soft tissues (like the arteries) which can lead to conditions like atherosclerosis.

Better Delivery, Better Bioavailability

Pure Health’s Micelle Liposomal delivery method encases each vitamin molecule in two different ways to make sure as much of it as possible is absorbed safely into your bloodstream.

  • 1. Firstly, the D3 or K2 molecule is protected by an incredibly small structure called a micelle. These micelles are no bigger than 100 nanometres, or about 0.2% the width of a human hair.

  • 2. The vitamin-filled micelle is then encapsulated inside a liposome, which is like a bubble that’s been modified to carry fat-soluble or water-soluble nutrients.

    Enveloping the vitamins in this nano-sized “packaging” makes them much more bioavailable, with one study¹ showing cellular uptake (or absorption) increased anywhere from 9 to 34 times as the liposome size was reduced.

    Most of us get our Vitamin D from sunlight or foods in our diet… but for too many of us, it’s simply not enough. 1 in 5 people today have a Vitamin D deficiency, and many may not even know their health is suffering because of it.

    Micelle Liposomal D3 + K2 gives you an easy way to get your daily dose of Vitamin D3, keeping your bones, heart, and body fit and healthy. And with the added K2, you make sure it’s being used in the right places and in the right ways.

    With Micelle Liposomal D3 + K2, you’re getting the most easily absorbed formula available today. A “dual encapsulation” system protects the D3 and K2 molecules from breaking down in your digestive system, so you get the full benefit. How?

    To keep your Vitamin D (and K) at healthy levels, we recommend 8 pumps of Micelle Liposomal D3 + K orally each day. You can also mix it into any cold drink and take it like that.

    Although you can take it any time of the day safely, we’d recommend you use it each morning. Research has indicated taking Vitamin D in the night can potentially interfere with your sleep. Taking it in the morning can have the opposite effect, maximising your natural melatonin and helping you get a better night’s rest.

    If you’re not getting enough vitamin D, you’re not alone. It’s estimated 1 billion people around the world suffer from a Vitamin D deficiency.

    A deficiency doesn’t necessarily mean you’re not eating enough fish or spending enough time out in the sun enough, though. Your body may not actually be absorbing the Vitamin D - a specific risk factor for anyone with conditions that disrupt the digestion of fat, such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease. Higher body fat can also lower your Vitamin D levels, as well as aging.

    So what does a Vitamin D deficiency look like? It can show up as any one or more of these symptoms:

    • Getting sick frequently
    • Bone loss
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle pain
    • Bone and back pain
    • Depression
    • Slowed healing
    • Hair loss
