Liposomal Vitamin D - Liposomal ADK
LIPOSOMAL VITAMIN D - Liposomal ADK
By Davinci Laboratories
Many are familiar with vitamin D, yet inadequacies are still surprisingly common. According to CDC data gathered from 2001 to 2006, roughly one-quarter of the United States’ population was at risk of vitamin D inadequacy, and a further eight percent were at risk for deficiency.
Liposomal delivery of vitamin D is by far the most effective method for optimal absorption because it encapsulates nutrients and compounds into highly fat-soluble lipid vesicles.
Liposomes are created from cholesterol and serve as protective mechanisms against digestive acids and other physiological components that would otherwise breakdown vitamin D before reaching its destination. Because liposomes have a low level of toxicity, they’re also less likely to trigger an adverse response and are more likely to be preserved as they pass through the gastrointestinal tract.
Liposomal vitamin D is better protected against oxidation and degradation than pills or tablets and, consequently, delivers its benefits more efficiently and effectively. These benefits amplify when vitamin D is taken alongside vitamin K2, a nutrient that synergistically pairs with vitamin D to support bone strength and development, and more.*
THE VITAMIN D AND K2 CONNECTION - Liposomal ADK
Vitamin K is another fat-soluble nutrient best known for its role in blood clotting.* It works synergistically with vitamin D to facilitate calcium metabolism.* There are two primary forms of vitamin K. Vitamin K1 is found primarily in plant foods like dark, leafy greens. In contrast, vitamin K2 is a family of compounds found mainly in animal sources and fermented foods.
Vitamin D maintains adequate blood calcium levels by improving calcium absorption, moving calcium from bones if there isn’t enough supplementation from foods.* Vitamin K directs calcium to where it needs to go.* It activates osteocalcin, a protein that signals calcium accumulation in teeth and bones, and matrix GLA protein, which prevents calcium from accumulating in soft tissues such as the blood vessels.
Supplementing vitamin D without vitamin K might create a risk of blood vessel calcification, which is implicated in the development of certain health problems.*
BENEFITS OF VITAMIN D - Liposomal ADK
There are many benefits of vitamin D supplementation, including calcium absorption, immunity, and cardiovascular health.*
Supports Calcium and Phosphorus Absorption
Vitamin D supplementation supports calcium and phosphorus absorption and bonding, crucial for the body’s development and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones.* It is also responsible for supporting calcium metabolism, which is necessary for the nervous system to function normally.*
Improves Immune Function
Vitamin D is also well known for supporting overall immune health and has been shown to reduce the risk of autoimmune issues, and seasonal health challenges.*
Key for Cardiovascular health
Research shows that vitamin D decreases the likelihood of heart-related challenges by supporting various cardiovascular mechanisms.*
THE MAIN TAKEAWAYS:
Vitamin D supports a myriad of key bodily functions, including healthy development of bones and teeth, proper immune function, and heart health.*
A liposomal delivery system of supplemental vitamin D is optimal for absorption and efficacy.
Pairing vitamin D with vitamin K2 is critical for calcium metabolism and blood vessel calcification prevention.*
Since vitamin D deficiency is common, consider having your vitamin D serum levels tested by your preferred healthcare practitioner. Keep in mind that results indicate levels in the blood three to four months prior. This is because vitamin D is stored within fat cells.
Based on your results, work with your practitioner to determine if a liposomal D or liposomal D-K2 nutritional supplement is appropriate for you. Many experts agree that the most effective supplementation method is a D-K2 product taken consistently all year round.
