Known as the “sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D3 plays a critical role in human survival. Our bodies synthesize vitamin D from cholesterol in response to sunlight. However, due to limited sun exposure, many people don’t get enough vitamin D, putting them at risk of osteoporosis and poor health. 

Mega D3 3.0 contains ingredients that work together to support vitamin D status and protect bone health.* Vitamin D helps ensure there is enough calcium in the body while vitamin K directs calcium into bone and teeth for optimal strength.*

When vitamin D levels are depleted, the body pulls calcium from bone, leading to bone loss. Vitamin D ensures the body has enough calcium and phosphorus for building bone by increasing absorption of these minerals via the small intestines.

Vitamin K2 helps by activating vitamin D-made proteins that lead to bone mineralization. Named for the Danish word “koagulation” for its blood clotting abilities, vitamin K2 helps proteins in the body collect more calcium, preventing calcium buildup in the arteries. Supplementing vitamin D without vitamin K can result in calcium being inappropriately deposited in arteries, which has a negative effect on blood vessel elasticity and can lead to heart disease.

Mega D3 3.0 offers a high dose of 10,000 IUs of vitamin D3 that is ideal for situations when more aggressive supplementation is desired, such as recovering from a deficiency.* There is evidence that weekly or biweekly high dosages of vitamin D can restore levels faster than daily supplementation. It is recommended that you work with your doctor to develop a dosing protocol to overcome a deficiency.

Vitamin D3
This supplement provides cholecalciferol, which is the active form of vitamin D3. Clinical trials show the following effects of vitamin D:

  • Prevent Bone Disorders*: When vitamin D is low, bone breakdown occurs to satisfy the body’s demand for calcium. Maintaining healthy vitamin D prevents rickets, osteoporosis, and osteopenia.
  • Prevent Muscle Weakness & Decrease Falls*: Low vitamin D leads to muscle weakness and increases risk of falling in all populations, including athletes and the elderly.
  • Support Immune Function*: Vitamin D improves the number and function of immune cells that fight off disease.
  • Improve Testosterone In Men*: Vitamin D inhibits the enzyme aromatase that transforms testosterone to estrogen.
  • Support Cardiovascular Health*: Adequate vitamin D decreases calcification of the arteries, reducing stress on the heart. A deficiency is consistently linked with increased risk of death by heart attack.
  • Support Neurological Function*: Vitamin D modulates calcium channels in the brain that control cellular brain health, affecting memory.
  • Reduce Cancer Risk*: Vitamin D is inversely correlated with increased risk for a variety of cancers, including breast, colon, prostate, and pancreatic cancer.
  • Support Healthy Body Composition*: Vitamin D is fat soluble and gets sequestered in fat tissue, increasing the risk of vitamin D deficiency in obesity.
  • Improve Metabolic Health*: Vitamin D supplementation improves insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance in people with vitamin D deficiency.
  • Reduce Mortality & Disease*: Low vitamin D is independently associated with many diseases and an increased risk of dying from all causes. Supplementation reduces all-cause mortality in the elderly.

Vitamin K2

  • This supplement provides menaquinone, the active form of vitamin K2. Clinical trials show the following effects of vitamin K2:
  • Support Bone Health*: Vitamin K2 activates the bone-building protein osteocalcin to prevent bone loss.
  • Protect Cardiovascular Function*: Vitamin K2 reduces calcification of the arteries, which occurs when calcium accumulates in the blood vessels and causes stiffening of the vascular system.
  • Improve Cancer Survival Rates*: Vitamin K has anti-inflammatory effects, inhibiting the cancer marker NF-Kappa-B that fuels tumor growth.

Who Can Benefit From Supplementation?

Individuals who have low or deficient vitamin D levels can benefit from working with their doctor to bring blood serum levels up. You may be at risk of low serum vitamin D if you avoid the sun, live at high latitudes, have darker skin pigmentation, or wear sunscreen and sunglasses regularly.
