INGREDIENTS IN UNIVED’S CALDVEG
Your body needs calcium for various functions including strengthening of bones and teeth, blood clotting and cardiovascular and neurological functioning.
Sunshine vitamin is a popular connotation for vitamin D. You need vitamin D, to make sure that you absorb enough total quantum of calcium.
Vitamin K is a unique nutrient produced within the body. However, it is not produced by the body but by beneficial microorganisms in the intestine. The vitamin produced in this manner is in fact 75% of what the body absorbs whereas the other 25% is attained from external sources. Once absorbed it equals the minimum quantity required for normal bodily functioning.
Magnesium and other trace minerals are also extremely essential for bone fortification, and deposition & utilization of minerals.
Vitamin C plays an integral part in collage formation. Collagen actually makes up 30% of our bones. It is particularly abundant in the connective tissue of cartilage and bone. Vitamin C also stimulates the cells that build bone, enhance calcium absorption, and enhance vitamin D’s effect on bone metabolism.
How is D3 different from D2?
Vitamin D3, also called cholecalciferol, is the active form of vitamin D. It is proven to be more potent as compared with vitamin D2. It has more half-life as compared with D2. In clinical terms, this means that it stays in the body longer than vitamin D2. Vitamin D3 also has more affinity to the vitamin D receptors present in several major organs of the body. Unived uses vitamin D derived from lichens, the only completely natural and vegan/vegetarian source of vitamin D3.
What is the difference between vitamin K1 and K2-7?
Vitamin K1 is primarily known for its role in blood clotting. Vitamin K2-7 on the other hand is proven to positively influence bone health. It is associated with increase in Bone Mineral Density (BMD) and reduced fractures. Also, vitamin K2 has better ‘half-life’ as compared with vitamin K1. Vitamin K2-7 plays a role in activation of specific vitamin K dependent proteins (such as osteocalcin) which promote deposition of calcium on bones and prevents calcification of arteries and blood vessels
