Tag Archives: Vitamin D


KD Ultra dietary supplements combine a full spectrum blend of vitamin K2 (all four chains: MK4, MK6, MK7 and MK9) with vitamin K1, vegan-sourced vitamin D3 and the enzyme lipase. This blend supports strong bones, cardiovascular health and immune function all in one supplement.

While vitamin K comes from food and some vitamin D from the sun, these methods are not sufficient to supply the full amount that the body needs. In fact, more than 40% of people are believed to be deficient in vitamin D.  KD Ultra offers a complete dose of both essential vitamins in a single supplement.

A Healthy Alliance!

DietarySupplementNews.com has the honor of sharing, Suzanne Steinbaum, DO, Director of Women’s Heart Health at the Heart and Vascular Institute at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York and a cofounder of the Global Nutrition and Health Alliance (GNHA) mission statements.

As a co-founder of the Global Nutrition and Health Alliance (GNHA), Suzanne Steinbaum,  educates people around the world about optimal nutrition being incredibly important. Steinbaum encourages people to get as much of their nutrients as possible from foods. But the reality is, it is more difficult than you think to consume enough through diet alone.

According to a study conducted by the GNHA, many adults may be overestimating how healthy their diets are and should consider supplementation. The survey of 3,000 American, British and German adults found that 72 percent reported having a “healthy” diet and more than half believed they consume all the key nutrients needed through food sources alone. However, the prevalence of chronic diseases in these countries suggests respondents may be overestimating how healthy their diets are. In terms of Omega-3 and Vitamin D, the survey also found that less than a third of those polled were actively taking a supplement.

A diet rich in important nutrients, like Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin D, is key to having a healthy heart and well-functioning cells throughout your body. Supplements aren’t a replacement for a healthy diet, but they can be important to bridge the gaps in your diet.
