Vitamin D3 (Food-Grown – Naturized®)
While Vitamin D is most well-known for its role in calcium homeostasis and skeletal health, burgeoning research over the last 15 years finds it exerts a far wider influence with a diverse, complex role in human health. Vitamin D plays a regulatory role in kidney, heart, and immune system function and is found to promote healthy inflammatory response and cellular health. It is also found to be essential for physiological homeostasis through its regulation and modulation of hormone secretion, cell proliferation, and cell differentiation. The biologically active form of vitamin D binds to cell receptors of the immune, nervous, and cardiovascular systems where it plays a key role in cell cycle regulation. As an immune system modulator, vitamin D supports healthy immune function.
The vitamin A in Natura’s Vitamin D-A-K is a natural mixed carotenoid complex from a reddish vegetable oil concentrate that is extracted from red palm fruits (Elaeis guineensis). It consists predominantly of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, gamma-carotene, and lycopene along with a small amount of other carotenoids. Carotenoids provide a broad spectrum of health benefits. They possess antioxidant activity and are able to quench free radicals. Carotenoids support healthy inflammatory response, modulate immune system function, and encourage healthy cellular behavior. They also promote healthy cardiovascular system function, support bone health, and promote longevity and overall wellness.*
Vitamin K1 (Food-Grown – Naturized®) and Vitamin K2 (Food-Grown – Naturized®)
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin essential for proteins vital to the process of blood clotting. It was designated “K” as the original German research called it the Koagulationsvitamin. Vitamin K is also a cofactor in bone metabolism, mineralization, and density where it is found synergistic with vitamin D. In addition to bone health, vitamin K is found to support healthy cardiovascular function, healthy inflammatory response, and healthy cellular function. Vitamin K also provides antioxidant activity.*
