Mother Nutrient’s Vitamin D3 delivers a potent dose of Vitamin D3 (5000 IU) combined with Vitamin K2 to maximize the benefits of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 plays a key role in calcium absorption and bone growth, as well as maintaining healthy glucose levels, neuromuscular function, and cognitive performance.†

 

Vitamin D has many benefits for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Vitamin D deficiency is extremely common and has been shown to be linked to depression, impaired cognition and mood, as well as increased risks for pregnancy complications like pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes1-3. Although the current recommended daily amount is set at 600 IU, the recommended dose is even higher for pregnant and postpartum women at 4,000-6,000 IU per day. In order to pass on the necessary levels to the baby and to support the mother’s mental health, it’s important for postpartum women to supplement to achieve adequate levels.

 

Unique D3+K2 combo

Many people are aware of the benefits of vitamin D but are unaware of how vitamin K can help. Vitamin K activates proteins that help direct the absorbed calcium to be stored in desirable areas like in the bone. Taking them together has a positive synergistic effect on your both health.4

 

Preferred D3 form

Vitamin D comes in 2 main forms: D2 (ergocalciferol) and D3 (cholecalciferol). D2 is a plant-based form, while D3 is the bioactive form of vitamin D that our bodies naturally produce when exposed to sunlight. While both can meet vitamin D needs, studies suggest that D3 is more potent, sustains vitamin D levels longer, and is better absorbed than D2, so D3 is the preferred and beneficial form of vitamin D to take.
