More Information on Vitamin D*
Vitamin D is a very important nutrient that has many beneficial properties and very few side effects when taken at recommended dietary levels. Vitamin D is not considered an essential vitamin, as it can be produced by the body. However, Vitamin D3 is essential for the absorption of calcium, magnesium, phosphate and zinc. Because it enhances the absorption of calcium and magnesium, Vitamin D is important for healthy bone metabolism, as well as all other essential functions provided by magnesium and calcium.*
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is one of the most valuable of the D vitamins, which can be acquired from a one's diet, supplements or sun exposure. Deficiencies in Vitamin D can lead to problems such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, fractures, rickets, as well as lowered immune function. Since Vitamin D is a crucial nutrient for the immune system, if an individual is deficient in Vitamin D, they may have an increased risk of viral infections, influenza or tuberculosis (TB). Vitamin D can be found in foods such as egg yolks, saltwater fish, milk, liver and cereals enriched with vitamin D.*
More Information on Vitamin K*
Vitamin K-2 is a fat-soluble essential vitamin required for protein modification, strong healthy bones, and for effective blood clotting. Without Vitamin K, blood platelets may not coagulate (clot) properly. Recent research studies have suggested that vitamin K may also be important for those with osteoporosis, heart disease, prostate cancer and other conditions.*
People with vitamin K deficiency are usually more likely to have bruising or bleeding, and deficiencies can also result from long-term antibiotic intake. Although all forms of vitamin K may be beneficial to the body, research has shown that vitamin K-2 may have additional properties that make it superior to other forms.*
Food sources of Vitamin K include green leafy vegetables, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, butter, natto, fish, liver, meat, eggs and cereal enriched with Vitamin K. While the best way to get the daily requirement of vitamin K into the body is by eating "Vitamin K rich foods", for individuals that are either not eating those types of foods or not absorbing Vitamin K efficiently, Vitamin K2 dietary supplements can be a good option.*
Suggested Usage: Shake well before use. As a dietary supplement spray 2 times under tongue, hold for 20 seconds and then swallow. Consume 1 to 2 times daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Best when taken with a fat-containing meal.*

Liposomes penetrate mucosal tissues allowing for rapid release into the blood stream. Nutrients that are not in liposomes have to pass through the stomach to reach the liver where they are metabolized and released into the bloodstream. Some nutrients are destroyed or compromised by stomach acids. Liposomes avoid the digestive system.*
A liposome is an extremely small (1/2 the width of a human hair), multi-layered bubble (called a vesicle). Liposomes have a fat-soluble exterior and an interior that is watery. They are made from the same type of material as our cell membranes, phospholipids.*
