Why You Should Be Taking ADK Vitamins
Take your vitamins. You’ve probably been hearing this daily refrain from your parents since you were a little kid. But have you ever asked why we take vitamins and what they do for our health? After all, don’t we get vitamins from the food we eat?
You are What You Eat
The short answer is yes, our food is full of vitamins and minerals. But are we eating enough of the foods that deliver the right nutrients and moreover, are those nutrients being properly absorbed into our bodies? This has been the goal from the start — to create the supplements we need to look and feel our best. Most of us think we eat healthily, but quality and quantity, as well as what you eat, plays a huge role in digestion and absorption of nutrients.
A Powerful 4-in-1 Solution
Terra Origin is proud to introduce our new A-D-K Essential Vitamins as one of the only completely vegan A-D-K vitamins on the market. These vitamins also come in high-potency liquid capsules with MCT oil — not powder — which helps generate cell production, allows for better absorption of calcium from the bloodstream into the bones, strengthens bone density and provides cardiovascular support.* But wait, there’s more:
- Specially formulated using high-quality nutraceuticals
- Vegan and non-GMO
- Daily supplement with a high-potency blend of Vitamins A, D and K1 and K2
We Can’t Keep it a Secret Anymore
There are three vitamins in particular that have been getting a lot of attention lately, and for good reason. A-D-K vitamins are a combination of vitamins A, D3 and K1 and K2. The reason these are together is because they jointly support the health of your bones and your heart. So, yeah, they’re a pretty big deal. Let’s break them down for you:
Give Me an A
You probably know Vitamin A for its being linked with helping improve or maintain eyesight (think carrots), but did you know it can also treat or help with acne? That’s because it’s an antioxidant that supports the way our immune system works and it also helps develop our bones. It’s a 2-for-1 vitamin.
Give Me a D
Vitamin D also helps the immune system by fighting off bacteria and viruses. Oh, and because it helps calcium get absorbed into the bloodstream, it strengthens bones and can help to control our cholesterol levels and blood pressure. And D3 is there to support your metabolism, like the good cheerleader it is.
Give Me a K
So yes, you should still eat your vegetables (thanks Mom), but supplementing with some extra help never hurts and might just give you reason to cheer for your strong bones, rockstar immune system and cardiovascular health.
