Our Vitamin D Supreme is an easy way to maintain critical levels of vitamin D needed for immunity and hormone.
"The immune system defends the body from foreign, invading organisms, promoting protective immunity while maintaining tolerance to self...in the context of vitamin D deficiency, there appears to be an increased susceptibility to infection and a diathesis, in a genetically susceptible host to autoimmunity."

Optimal vitamin D levels are at least 50 ng/mL, with some experts recommending levels at 80-100 ng/mL. In latitudes above that of Washington DC, there is insufficient vitamin D supplied for many months of the year due to the angle of the sun. This couples with increased indoor living, sunscreen, and inflammation and results in insufficient vitamin D levels in most of our clients.
You have some options to self-test your vitamin D levels here. Choose the CBC in the general health screening and then add the vitamin D in the nutrient panel ($80 total.)
Vitamin D Supreme provides a clinically useful dose of vitamin D3 along with vitamin K as both K1 and the MK-7 form of K2. This formula contains higher therapeutic doses than Vitamin D Synergy for situations where more aggressive repletion is required. The amount of vitamin D and K in this formula may be beneficial for those who do not get adequate sun exposure and/or dietary sources of these vitamins. Vitamins D & K work as a team. Thus, increasing doses of vitamin D will increase the need for vitamin K.
