Vitamin D Complex - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Vitamin D Complex
Vitamin D Complex features 2000 IUs of vitamin D, along with efficacious amounts of the other fat-soluble vitamins, A, E (tocopherols and tocotrienols), and K (K1 and K2). While there are a myriad of beneficial health attributes associated with vitamin D, it is extremely important to keep it in balance with these other vitamins. Research is emerging on the intricate interrelationships between them, which should make one think twice about dosing any of these supraphysiologically without the others.
Made with non-GMO ingredients.
Interestingly, what were once thought to be signs and symptoms of vitamin D toxicity are now understood to actually not be toxicities, but rather deficiency symptoms of one or more of vitamin Ds other fat-soluble counterparts. Simply stated, supplementing therapeutic amounts of vitamin D creates a greater need for vitamins A, E, and K.
When looking at current research, it becomes clear that the importance lies in the critical balance necessary for these fat-soluble vitamins to work in harmony and support each other. Health problems can easily occur when one or more of these vitamins are not provided in sufficient amounts. Thus, supplementing with therapeutic doses of vitamin D without assuring supportive levels of vitamins A, E, & K can result in deficiency symptoms of one or more of these fat-soluble vitamins.
Vitamin D Complex may be helpful for:
- Avoiding imbalances between the four fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E & K) when taking therapeutic doses of any of these on an individual basis
- Immune support/ fighting infection in adults and children
- Support for those with malabsorption issues, in conditions where it is difficult to absorb fat-soluble vitamins, such as cystic fibrosis, celiac disease, ulcerative colitis, pancreatic insufficiency
- Cardiovascular disease/atherosclerosis
- Hypothyroidism and any condition that negatively affects the ability to convert beta-carotene to vitamin A and where thyroid receptors need nutritional support
- Osteoporosis support and prevention
- Health and maintenance of skin, hair, nails
Fat-soluble vitamin testing (Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile) is available through Metametrix Laboratory.

This clinically useful dose of vitamin D3 and vitamin K (in both K1 and the MK-7 form of K2), is highly bioavailable. Both of these forms of Vitamin K are important to our health: Vitamin K1 (the naturally occurring form of vitamin K in vegetables) and Vitamin K2 as MK-7, which is a product of soy fermentation (free of soy allergens) and has the special property of metabolizing slowly throughout the day. This formula contains higher therapeutic doses than Vitamin D Synergy for situations where more aggressive repletion is required. Many holistically oriented health care practitioners are aiming for vitamin D blood levels of between 50 - 100 ng/mL. Many patients will require a higher dose of vitamin D as found in Vitamin D Supreme to achieve this.
