Studies link vitamin D to a long list of impressive benefits: keeping bones and teeth strong, maintaining a healthy immune system, heart and circulatory system, strong lungs, healthy prostate, colon, and breast tissues.*
This formula contains higher therapeutic doses for situations where more aggressive repletion is required.
Your body naturally makes vitamin D when you step into the sunshine for 30 minutes a day or when you eat certain foods. But despite easy access, many people still face vitamin D deficiency.
Vitamin D is your body’s immune ally.*
Say hello to the day with the neurological support of Shine On™ D3+K.*
A hearty 5000 IU per veggie cap, accompanied by vitamin K1 and K2.
Vitamin D assists with proper bone health, as it helps regulate the body’s calcium levels.
The science behind why it works:
When calcium levels are low, vitamin D stimulates calcium absorption and reduces calcium excretion, thereby encouraging healthy bones and teeth.*
Increasing vitamin D levels increases the need for vitamin K. Both forms of vitamin K (K1 and K2) are necessary for our health.
The science behind why it works:
Vitamin K1 is found in leafy green vegetables; while vitamin K2 is a product of soy fermentation and has the special property of metabolizing slowly throughout the day.
Two types of robust immune support, one cute capsule.We took spore-based probiotics — microscopic organisms that can withstand stomach acid. Next, we added immune legends vitamin C, zinc, and chloroplast extract from organic spinach.*
Credit where credit is due. Nearly 70% of your immune system happens within your GI tract’s diverse bacteria colonies.
ProBio Protect™’s spore-based probiotics have a hard protein shell, allowing them to survive all the way to the small intestine. From there, they produce enzymes, vitamins, and carotenoids for healthy immune function.*
Since we go all out on immune health, we added highly-concentrated nutrients for added immune love.*
Take one capsule per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Spore-forming bacilli are resistant to heat and ambient humidity, thus no refrigeration is required.
The best way to get vitamin D is from direct sunlight every day, and you should always aim for that first.
If you aren’t able to get 20-30 minutes of sunlight every day (with no sunscreen) and additional vitamin D in your diet, then take Vitamin D Plus daily. Check with your medical practitioner to get your D tested, and aim for levels at or above 60 ng/ml.
The sun is less strong in winter months and in northern latitudes, plus cold weather often means less time outdoors. Even pollution in your city can affect the amount of sunlight you get when outdoors. These additional factors increase the likelihood of vitamin D deficiency.
Ideally, only about 10% of your daily vitamin D should come from what you eat. In reality, many people rely on their food to provide a much bigger portion. That means you need plenty of vitamin D-rich foods like fatty fish, beef liver, mushrooms, cheese and other dairy, and egg yolks.
If you have reached the point where you are vitamin D deficient, it’s essential for you to supplement, since food alone can’t replenish levels quickly enough.
