What is Metabolics Vegan Vitamin D3 and K2?
Metabolics Vegan Vitamins D3 and K2 Capsules offer vitamins D3 and K2 that can be consumed on vegan and vegetarian diets. These capsules offer the same amounts of vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 as our non-vegan D3 and K2 2500 IU product but, instead, the D3 is made from 100% algae rather than lanolin, which is derived from sheep’s wool.
We are always looking for vegan options in our products, as we believe that nutritional support should be for everyone, every diet, and lifestyle. As a company, we have been working very hard to formulate a vegan product that matches our high product standards whilst being price competitive with non-vegan products.
By offering the same amount of vitamin D3 and K2 that you would find in our non-vegan Vitamins D3 and K2 2500 IU, we are able to offer a vegan option that delivers these two vitamins in the right balance for bone health and immune system support.
What is Metabolics Vegan Vitamins D3 and K2 for?
Vitamins D and K are essential vitamins that are vital for a range of functions within the body. What some people may not know is that there are different forms of vitamin D and vitamin K, with vitamin D the most common forms are vitamin D2, which is produced by plants and is generally cheaper, and vitamin D3, which is considered more biologically active and is what is produced when your skin is exposed to sunlight.
There are also two primary forms of vitamin K, vitamin K1 is mostly found in plants and is generally considered to be poorly absorbed by the body, vitamin K2 is found in foods that contain fats such as fermented foods and animal products. Because vitamin k is a fat soluble vitamin, it is thought that K2 is better absorbed because it is consumed with fats and its long side chain allows it circulate in the blood for longer than K1.
Vitamin D plays a crucial role in supporting the function of the immune system, calcium absorption, bone health, muscle function, cell division and the support of normal teeth. Vitamin K is important for normal blood clotting and for activating an important protein, osteocalcin, which can draw calcium into the bones, making it important for bone health support.
It is recommended to take vitamin K2 with D3 as they are thought to work synergistically, with the vitamin D3 ensuring that calcium is more easily absorbed by the gut and K2 promoting the process of integrating the calcium into the bone.
Who is Metabolics Vegan Vitamins D3 and K2 for?
Metabolics Vegan Vitamins D3 and K2 2500IU is for people who follow a vegan diet and want to support their vitamin D and vitamin K levels with a dietary supplement. This 100% plant based vitamin D and K supplement contains no animal derived ingredients and gives 62.5mcg (2500IU) vitamin D3 and 200 mcg vitamin K2 per capsule.
During the winter months especially, it is recommended that people in the UK supplement with vitamin D due to reduced exposure to sunlight, which the NHS suggests in its advice on vitamin D is between September and late March/ early April.
