Vitamin D is the most crucial fat-soluble vitamin for epigenetic healing, activating over 3,000 genes that can change us down to our DNA. It is needed for absorption of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D3 is the active form that the body needs for utilization, usually found in animal foods. Cymbiotika has pioneered vegan sourcing of D3 from lichen while most companies source from lanolin, or sheep’s wool. While Vitamin D on its own has been pushed by medical science for decades for bones, it needs both VItamin K and Vitamin A to fulfill its true potential.
Vitamin D on its own has led to a decrease in bone and heart health and increased bone-related injuries such as fractures. Vitamin D itself is not to be avoided, but works only in synergy with Vitamin A to serve a more important role in producing proteins for K2 to be able to move calcium into the bones for utilization. So Vitamin D has a crucial role, but on its own doesn’t achieve the synergy needed to utilize the nutrients that holistically create the foundation for bone, heart, and cellular health and protection.
Vitamin D works to absorb dietary calcium into the intestines, getting it ready for K2 to transport it to the bones where it is needed. It is most often synthesized by the body in response to sunlight, making it crucial in the diet or via active bioavailable supplementation for those in cold climates and with modern lifestyles removed from working with nature. Window sunlight is not sufficient as most windows block the beneficial wavelength needed. It is important to obtain Vitamin D in active form D3 for the body to fully utilize its benefits along with Vitamin A, with whom it shares an ion channel
Vitamin D3 is found in Cymbiotika's D3 K2 CoQ10 formula for utilization of calcium and phosphorus by Vitamin K2. We are thrilled to source our VitaShine™ D3 from lichen, a plant organism that comes from algae and grows on many trees in nature. This makes Cymbiotika the first to present a Vegan Society Certified D3. Combined with K2 in MK-4 and MK-7 forms from fermented garbanzo beans, Beta-Carotene for appropriate Vitamin A levels, and CoQ10 for ultimate cellular, heart, and bone harmony. Our D3 K2 CoQ10 formula is revolutionary, in our signature micelle delivery system for maximum absorption.
