Ancient Purity's Vegan Vitamin D3 with Vitamin K2. This supplement has been passionately created for the Vegan Diet, there really are so few decent Vitamin D3 supplements for those on the Vegan Diet, let alone ones with Vitamin K2. The Vitamin D3 present in this supplement is Cholecalciferol which comes from Lichen. What is Lichen? Well, its made 2 or more organisms working in symbiosis; a fungus and an alga or cyanobacterium. Scientist believe Lichens could be the first example of fungi working with photosynthesising organisms like green algae. Lichens grow on bark and rock. Lichens extract water and essential nutrients from the atmosphere in their close proximity. 

We actually place this supplement in our Vegan Essentials Pack, along with Lugol's Iodine, Vegan Omega 3 and that all-time classic Vitamin B12 the D3 and K2 supplement is vital. Why? well because having been brought up by a grandmother who's knowledge and experience in natural health and healing spanned 90 years, along with uncles and a mother who equally took a keen interest, studied and practised all things natural health, collectively we've seen a lot. As has Clive de Carle who we still work closely with. The Vegan Diet is something close to my heart as is Vegetarianism, yet we witness first hand and see through today's open share of information, people who get ill, sick and even fall apart on a Vegan Diet. 
Last year I saw a book by a man calling himself "big gay and vegan" or something, all I remember was part of the title of the book was eat like you don't give a shit?? Ok, so the title might not mean that exactly but it's terrible to think you can simply become vegan and simply get healthy, often improvement can come by way of a mind shift and moving away from junk. After this phase one has to seriously make sure that they are getting real full spectrum nutrition. This is hard enough for anyone these days and can be even harder on the Vegan Diet.

If you don't know already here's why you might need Vitamin D3

The European Journal of Clinical Nutrition states that increasing your levels of Vitamin D would cut premature death by 21%, and extend your healthy lifespan by more than two years (and that's quality, not just quantity). Vitamin D is not actually a vitamin, it was wrongly classified as such but the name never changed. Vitamin D actually is a fat-soluble precursor hormone part of the steroid hormone in your body called calcitriol, that the human body can produce naturally. Calcitriol regulates phosphorus, calcium, and bone metabolism and neuromuscular function in the body. There are multiple forms of Vitamin D, the two most important ones are Vitamin D-2 & Vitamin D-3. Vitamin D3, also known as cholecalciferol, which is made by your skin naturally. 

Medical researchers have been sounding the alarm about the importance of maintaining optimal Vitamin D levels from childhood through to the adult years, but millions of ageing adults remain grossly deficient in this critical hormone-based nutrient. Every cell in the body is now known to have Vitamin D receptors where the nutrient provides an essential key to accurate DNA and cellular replication. Vitamin D works at the genetic level to lower the incidence of mutations and improve cellular replication. 

The important factor when it comes to vitamin D is your serum level, which should ideally be between 50-70 ng/ml year-round, and the only way to determine this is with a blood test. Sun exposure or a safe tanning bed is the preferred method, but a vitamin D3 supplement can be used when necessary. Most adults need about 8,000 IU's of vitamin D per day to achieve optimal serum levels. You also need to make sure you're getting enough vitamin K2, so obviously we have put the two together.

Vitamin K2 (Still more benefits being discovered)

Most people get enough K from their diets to maintain adequate blood clotting, but NOT enough to offer protection against some major health problems and the list is growing. Vitamin K comes in two forms, and it is important to understand the differences between them before devising your nutritional plan. Vitamin K can be classified as either K1 or K2:

Vitamin K1 Found in green vegetables, K1 goes directly to your liver and helps you maintain a healthy blood clotting system. (This is the kind of K that infants need to help prevent a serious bleeding disorder.) It is also vitamin K1 that keeps your own blood vessels from calcifying and helps your bones retain calcium and develop the right crystalline structure. 

Vitamin K2, bacteria produce this type of vitamin K. It is present in high quantities in your gut, but unfortunately is not absorbed from there and passes out in your stool. K2 goes straight to vessel walls, bones, and tissues other than your liver. It is present in fermented foods, particularly cheese and the Japanese food natto, which is by far the richest source of K2.  Vitamin K1 can convert to K2 in your body, but there are some problems with this, which I will discuss shortly. As a supplement, K1 is less expensive, which is why it's the form used for neonates. Making matters even more complex, there are several different forms of vitamin K2. 

MK-8 and MK-9 come primarily from dairy products. MK-4 and MK-7 are the two most significant forms of K2, and act very differently in your body:
MK-4 is a synthetic product, very similar to vitamin K1, and your body is capable of converting K1 into MK-4. However, MK-4 has a very short half-life of about one hour, making it a poor candidate as a dietary supplement. After reaching your intestines, it remains mostly in your liver, where it is useful in synthesizing blood-clotting factors. 
MK-7 is a newer agent with more practical applications because it stays in your body longer; its half-life is three days, meaning you have a much better chance of building up a consistent blood level, compared to MK-4 or K1. MK-7 is extracted from the Japanese fermented soy product called natto. You could actually get loads of MK-7 from consuming natto as it is relatively inexpensive, and is available in most Asian food markets. Few people, however, tolerate its smell and slimy texture. 

Vitamin K Research Has Come a Long Way
In 2008, a German research group discovered that vitamin K2 provides substantial protection from major prostate issues, which is one of the leading problems among men in the United States. According to Dr Vermeer, men taking the highest amounts of K2 have about 50% less chance of an issue.

Research results are similarly encouraging for the benefits of vitamin K to your cardiac health:
In 2004, the Rotterdam Study, which was the first study demonstrating the beneficial effect of vitamin K2, showed that people who consume 45 mcg of K2 daily live seven years longer than people getting 12 mcg per day.ii
In a subsequent study called the Prospect Study, 16,000 people were followed for 10 years. Researchers found that each additional 10 mcg of K2 in the diet results in 9% fewer cardiac events. 
Preliminary findings also suggest that vitamin K can help protect you from brain disease. However, it is too early to say exactly what types of damage it prevents—and how—but it is an area of intense interest to vitamin K scientists right now.

Vitamin K2 and Osteoporosis?
The evidence suggests that vitamin K2 is essential for your bone health, but it is a nutrient the vast majority of you do not get in adequate amounts from your diet. 

How does vitamin K lead to bone health?
Osteocalcin is a protein produced by your osteoblasts (cells responsible for bone formation) and is utilized within the bone as an integral part of the bone-forming process. However, osteocalcin must be "carboxylated" before it can be effective. Vitamin K functions as a cofactor for the enzyme that catalyzes the carboxylation of osteocalcin.

Vitamin K2 has been found to be a far more effective "activator" of osteocalcin than K1.
There has been some remarkable research about the protective effects of vitamin K2 against osteoporosis:
A number of Japanese trials have shown that vitamin K2 completely reverses bone loss and in some cases even increases bone mass in people with osteoporosis.iv
The pooled evidence of seven Japanese trials shows that vitamin K2 supplementation produces a 60% reduction in vertebral fractures and an 80% reduction in hip and other non-vertebral fractures. Researchers in the Netherlands showed that vitamin K2 is three times more effective than vitamin K1 in raising osteocalcin, which controls the building of bone.

Although your body can convert K1 into K2, studies show that the amount of K2 produced by this process alone is insufficient. Even if you are consuming enough K1, your body uses most of it to make clotting factors, leaving little remaining for your bones. In other words, your liver preferentially uses vitamin K1 to activate clotting factors, while most of your other tissues preferentially use K2. Vitamin K2 has also been found to offer you other benefits—besides your bones! Vitamin K2 could lower the risk of major health problems.
