Research suggests a significant portion of the North American population has suboptimal levels of vitamin D. Most holistically oriented health care practitioners regard a blood level of vitamin D between 50 - 100 ng/mL as optimal. The amount of vitamin D in this formula may correct the deficiencies of patients who do not get adequate sun exposure and/or dietary sources of these vitamins. Liposomal D Supreme provides 2500 IU of D3 in each 1-pump serving, making it an ideal choice for those who need higher dosing but prefer to swallow fewer pills.
Vitamin D is essential for healthy immune function, calcium homeostasis, and more. Owing to their complementary roles in calcium trafficking and skeletal homeostasis, it is recommended to include vitamin K when supplementing vitamin D. Increasing the amount of vitamin D in the presence of inadequate levels of vitamin K may increase the risk of calcium deposition in arteries and soft tissue and have a negative effect on arterial elasticity. Liposomal D Supreme provides vitamin K as both K1 and K2, the latter being required for activation of osteocalcin and matrix Gla protein, critical for bone health and protecting against arterial calcification.
Benefits of Liposomal Delivery
- Superior absorption and intracellular delivery of nutrients
- Phospholipid structure allows for effective delivery of compounds with different solubilities carried within the same particle (e.g., water- and lipid-soluble compounds)
- Penetrates the blood-brain barrier
- Survives the acidic environment of the stomach, ensuring intestinal uptake and delivery to the lymphatic system
- Convenient for those who prefer to swallow fewer pills; also allow for easy dosing
Liposomal D Supreme provides vitamins D and K formulated with liposomal technology. Vitamin D is needed for a healthy immune system, and vitamins D and K act synergistically to support healthy bones and proper calcium balance in the body.* Liposomes are spheres made of phospholipids—the primary building blocks of cell membranes. Owing to this structure, liposomes bond easily with cell membranes to facilitate intracellular delivery of their nutrient cargo. Thanks to this enhanced delivery and absorption, nutrients delivered in liposomal form offer superior absorption and bioavailability.
Each 0.5 mL serving (1 pump) of this citrus flavored formula provides 2500 IU of vitamin D3 and 325 mcg of vitamin K as K1 and K2.
