Nutrients to boost our body chemistry.
Your body is home to a constant symphony of chemical reactions, where vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other nutrients each play a part. When this performance is in tune, the health outcomes are truly amazing. That is why we all need an adequate supply of key vitamins, in forms that our bodies can recognize and use to their full potential.
Every nutrient and vitamin product we offer carries an important similarity: It is formulated to help you maintain optimal health, from promoting a positive mood to supporting a robust immune response, to helping your cells produce enough energy to function fully.
Take a look around you. Notice all the differences in each person’s age, size, weight, and lifestyle. All these factors contribute to our individual nutritional needs—and these are just some of the factors you can see! Because needs vary so widely from person to person, only you and your health practitioner can determine your personal nutritional requirements.
Experts love to argue over the appropriate dosage of the “sunshine vitamin,” with recommendations varying from 400 to 10,000 IU daily. Lifestyle factors like working indoors, sunscreen use, and even where you live can greatly impact how much vitamin D is required. When supplementing with vitamin D, periodic lab testing can help determine your individual needs.
Vitamin K is a lesser-known hero when it comes to support for bone health and integrity. An appropriate dose of vitamin K2 (“2” refers to one family of this vitamin) is 45 mcg per day. To help your body absorb vitamin K, it is important to take this nutrient with a meal that contains fat.
While it is great to commit to a daily regimen of supplemental vitamins, keep in mind that not all vitamins are created equal. Your body’s ability to absorb and utilize the nutrients it receives is just as important as getting them in the first place.
Many nutrients must come in a certain form in order for the body to derive reliable benefits. This goes beyond the liquid, powder, or pill form to the biochemical structure of the nutrient itself.
With this in mind, we carefully chose specific strains that are scientifically shown to be the most bioavailable forms available. Potency is another consideration. Are the levels of nutrients in your vitamins high enough to offer real results, or do they just look good on the product label? Rest assured that Nordic Naturals takes potency seriously. We only offer products with ingredients that research has shown benefit health, in doses (and forms) that the body expects.
