Smile D3 and K2 formulation yields 5000 units (125µg) of natural vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol) as well as an impressive amount of 100µg Vitamin K2.
Vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 work together to help support heart, muscle, immune, and bone support, proper calcium absorption, and mood. Bottom line, vitamins K2 and D3 are truly the perfect pair.
Possible causes that contribute to vitamin D deficiency are:
- Using sunscreen and clothes to protect from the sun: In fact, the hours that our bodies are actually exposed to the sun are much less than we think. People with bright sunshine throughout the year, such as the people of the Mediterranean, tend to be more covered by the sun than people in countries with reduced sunshine (which, of course, sounds unreasonable).
- Foods: Although the levels of vitamin D in our diet are low, it plays an important role, as high levels of D3 in countries such as Sweden and Norway appear to be consistent with high consumption of fatty fish and fish oils.
- Darker skin: In general, dark-skinned people appear to be at greater risk for vitamin D3 deficiency, as the darker melanin acts as a protective filter against sunlight.
