BUENA PARK, Calif., March 1, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- NUTRILITE(R), a world leading nutritional supplement brand, just launched its newest product, Vitamin D3 2000 IU plus Vitamin K2. NUTRILITE Vitamin D3 2000 IU plus Vitamin K2 is formulated with the naturally occurring form of Vitamin D your body produces when exposed to sunlight - in an amount that's equal to 20 eight ounce glasses of milk.
Recent studies show that it is very difficult to get enough Vitamin D through diet alone. Yet Vitamin D is important because it helps the body absorb calcium for strong bones and teeth. This is why many health experts are now recommending an increase to the Recommended Daily Allowance for vitamin D, suggesting that you get a minimum of 2000 IUs each day.
And new research shows that Vitamin D supports breast, colon, and immune system health. NUTRILITE Vitamin D3 formulation also includes Vitamin K2 which is an ideal complement because it helps promote calcium incorporation into bone.
"With the impact of recent studies recognizing the importance of Vitamin D, we're proud to launch NUTRILITE Vitamin D3 to help our customers maintain their optimal health," says Keith Randolph, NUTRILITE scientist.
Randolph added, "Because our product is formulated with 2000 IUs of Vitamin D3, along with Vitamin K2, it provides the best combination of ingredients and potency to support overall health."
Because Nutrilite strongly believes in the power of phytonutrients and wants to use only the best sources, many of the plant concentrates that go into NUTRILITE products come from our farms. NUTRILITE is the only global vitamin and mineral brand to grow, harvest, and process plants on their own certified organic farms, spread out over 6,400 acres in California, Washington state, Mexico and Brazil.
