Vitamin D and Vitamin K2
Vitamin D and vitamin K2 are cofactors in the regulation of calcium metabolism.Together, the two vitamins control the formation and breakdown of bone cells and important transport molecules that ensure the correct utilisation of calcium.
A pre-existing vitamin K2 deficiency combined with vitamin D3 supplementation can increase the risk of calcium buildup in blood vessels and organs (leading to calcification, arteriosclerosis, kidney stones, etc.). Sunday Natural Vitamin D3 and K2 MK7 combines the two nutrients in a ratio that ensures optimal synergy.
Health Benefits of Vitamin D (According to the EFSA)
Vitamin D contributes to:
- Normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus
- Normal blood calcium levels
- The maintenance of normal bones
- The maintenance of normal muscle function
- The maintenance of normal teeth
- The normal function of the immune system
and vitamin D has a role in the process of cell division.
Vitamin D is still being researched and new properties of this vitamin are still being discovered on an almost yearly basis.
Sunday Natural Premium Vitamin D3
All of our vegetarian vitamin D products contain premium vitamin D3 as an active ingredient, which is custom-made according to our strict specifications, and without any additives except vitamin E and a high quality MCT coconut oil as a carrier oil. This product is notable for its absolute purity and guaranteed vitamin D3 content.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that can only be absorbed by the body when combined with fats. Our vitamin D3 is therefore dissolved in MCT coconut oil and then dried to make a fine powder. The powder also contains fat-soluble vitamin E in the form of natural D-alpha-tocopherol. As a result, it exists in a form that can be readily absorbed by the body. The high-quality, medium-chain fatty acids of the MCT oil and vitamin E offer valuable nutrients themselves.
In order to achieve an even distribution of vitamin D3 in the active ingredient powder and thus a precise dosage, we use only highly pure, 100% nanoparticle-free microcrystalline cellulose. This allows us to avoid variation in active ingredient content between capsules, which is common among many other brands.
Health Benefits of Vitamin K (According to the EFSA)
Vitamin K contributes to:
- Normal blood clotting
- The maintenance of normal bones
Most organisations do not consider vitamin K1 and K2 separately and, as such, there is not extensive information available on the benefits of vitamin K2 specifically. As such, our statements about vitamin K2 are based on the assumption that K1 and K2 function similarly.
Vitamin K2 MK7: All-Trans from Norway
Vitamin K2 exists in different forms, each of which has a different level of efficacy. Vitamin K2 MK7 is today considered by far the most effective form of K2. Since vitamin molecules take different chemical forms (the so-called cis-trans isomers of vitamin K2), there are enormous differences even between different vitamin K2 MK7 active substances. It is believed that only the trans forms can be utilised by the body.
Original K2VITAL® vitamin K2 from Norway is one of the few commercial supplements that consists of 100% highly effective all-trans MK7, guaranteed by Norwegian laboratory testing.
Our ultra pure, PEG- and carrageenan-free capsules dissolve quickly in the stomach to release the active ingredient. In contrast to tablets, the loose powder in the capsules has not been pressed and can therefore be better absorbed by the body.
Furthermore, we ensure that each of our high-dose capsules contains an exact dose of active ingredients. With capsules, we can achieve precision and avoid common fluctuations in dosage. Thus our capsules contain the exact dosage listed, eliminating the potential for accidental over- or under-dose.
Premium Acacia Fibre
Acacia fibre is a well tolerated, water-soluble natural fibre. It serves as a food source for bifido and lacto bacteria. The bacteria process the acacia fibre into short-chain fatty acids, which nourish the intestinal mucosa. Our premium sustainable acacia fibre powder is an organic, GMO-free natural substance of the highest quality, derived from the acacia gum of specially selected Acacia senegal trees in Africa.
Our producer works with and supports local communities in the Sahel region (also known as the Gum Arabic Belt). The brand prioritises sustainability, and does not use pesticides.
