Some vitamins require a cofactor to truly provide an effective supplement. Although vitamin D is a staple nutrient in achieving optimal health, without vitamin K2 there to support its function, there are increased risks that the beneficial vitamin may cause more damage than good. The Vitamin D3 + K2 Bundle offers top tier vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 supplements to ensure you get a healthy dose of the essentials to keep your organs, blood vessels, and body systems functioning properly while giving you the necessary boost to feel energized and accomplished.
Vitamin K2-7 and Vitamin D
Vitamin D is noted for being essential to our everyday health. From decreasing the risk of developing depression, rickets in early childhood, osteomalacia in adulthood, and osteoporosis, vitamin D is essential. Deficiency is also associated with a variety of symptoms including light-headedness, excessive sweating, fatigue, erectile dysfunction, and muscle weakness. Furthermore, Research suggests vitamin D deficiency has a role in the advancement of breast, colon, ovarian, and prostate cancer. While natural forms, such as sunshine and food sources, are more ideal, high-quality supplementation can provide additional sources to reduce the chance of deficiency. Enhancing the danger of a potential vitamin D deficiency, most people lack a key component to vitamin D absorption.
Recent studies have shown that high doses of Vitamin D can lead to toxicity (hypervitaminosis D), especially in a person deficient in K2. This can lead to an increase in calcification of arteries and tissues, hardening the arteries and causing a disruption of the body’s normal processes, including organ function and blood vessels. This increases the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
If you’re taking vitamin D or calcium supplements, studies have shown that you should also be taking K2 in the right ratio; otherwise, you are at a much higher risk for osteoporosis and heart disease. Vitamin K2 also plays an important role in preventing disease and helping you age well! It is very common to be deficient in Vitamin K2, especially if you are not taking supplements, because it’s very difficult to get enough in our food even if you eat a healthy diet. Some of our daily requirement of vitamin K2 comes from the beneficial bacteria in our gut, demonstrating another reason having a healthy microbiome is vital to health, but what is fermented in the gut is still not sufficient for total requirements.
The Vitamin D3 + K2 Bundle offers a simplified solution to improve supplementation using a high-quality source.
Omega-3s are naturally abundant in our whole, unrefined, certified-pure Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil, which contains an ample dose of natural Vitamin D3. As well as enhancing general health, omega-3s and vitamin D support the extreme physical and mental demands placed on serious amateur and professional athletes.
Vital Choice Salmon Oil comes from the heads of freshly harvested wild Alaskan sockeye salmon. Wild Alaskan sockeye salmon are among the purest of all ocean fish, according to the EPA, FDA, and independent scientists. Its brilliant orange color comes from astaxanthin: the carotenoid-class antioxidant that wild salmon acquire by eating krill and other zooplankton. These unique attributes make Vital Choice Sockeye Salmon Oil a rare, powerfully health-promoting omega-3 supplement.
To guarantee the highest standard of supplementation, Vital Choice Salmon Oil has the Certified for Sport™ seal of approval from NSF, which assures athletes that it is free of all substances banned by sports federations worldwide.
Additionally, the oil is purified using molecular distillation, which removes mercury and man-made chemical contaminants without affecting the structure or value of the omega-3 fatty acids.
Leading sports leagues and associations, including these, have authorized their athletes to use NSF Certified for Sport™ supplements:
- Major League Baseball
- MLB Players’ Association
- National Football League
- NFL Players’ Association
- The PGA and LPGA
- Canadian Center for Ethics in Sports
All Vital Choice Salmon Oil and Vitamin D supplements are made from the same pure, natural ingredients, in the same way … but only our Salmon Oil + Vitamin D3 supplement is Certified for Sport™ by NSF.
The NSF Certified for Sport™ program enforces four key provisions and provides continual monitoring to ensure compliance with substance prohibitive lists promulgated by WADA, NSF Annex A, NFL, MLB, and NCAA:
- Banned substance screening for products intended for professional and elite athletes.
- Good Manufacturing Practices audits of the production facility.
- Toxicological reviews of the product’s formulation and substantiation of any product claims.
- Annual label claim tests to ensure the product is meeting its declared nutritional values and is free from microbial and heavy metal contamination.
Store in a cool, dry, dark place.
You can refrigerate or freeze the oil, though there is no need, except in excessively warm room conditions. Our Salmon Oil will become cloudy if refrigerated or frozen, but this is no cause for concern. (For more, see “Cloudy Fish Oil Myth”, below.)

The recommended dosage for healthy adults is 3 capsules daily (3,000mg of salmon oil) or as recommended by a health care professional.

Just Thrive K2-7
Vitamin K2 is known as the “Activator X” super-nutrient that Weston A. Price – a dentist known primarily for his theories on the relationship between nutrition, good health, bone development and teeth – found prevalent in foods in the healthiest communities.
Early evidence about the beneficial qualities of vitamin K2 comes from Eastern Japan where consumption of natto – a Japanese fermented soybean dish replete with K2 – is common. Some even say K2 is arguably the most important dietary supplement, because researchers noticed that rates of osteoporosis, diabetes, senile dementia and heart disease in Eastern Japan were much lower worldwide, and specifically far lower than in the U.S.
Vitamin K2 works synergistically with two other fat-soluble vitamins that Price studied: vitamins A and D. Vitamins A and D signal to the cells to produce certain proteins, and then vitamin K activates these proteins. K2 plays a crucial role in the development of the facial bones, and its presence in the diets of non-industrialized people explains the wide facial structure and freedom from dental deformities.
Benefits Of Vitamin K2-7
Most people have heard of Vitamin K1, a vitamin found in our daily diet that activates proteins in regulating the thickness of our blood; however, little was known about the power of Vitamin K2-7, until recently. In fact, Vitamin K2-7 is found in every tissue of our body, making it a necessary and critical activator in many of the key functions of our body’s health.
A growing body of published research confirms that vitamin K2:
- Supports heart health
- Is important for the utilization of minerals
- Protects against tooth decay
- Supports growth and development
- Is involved in normal reproduction
- Supports bone health by protecting against calcification of the arteries
- Is a major component of the brain
Why Just Thrive Vitamin K2-7
What makes Just Thrive® K2-7 the best vitamin K2 supplement available is stability and potency.
Just Thrive® K2-7 features a very stable compound, which does not degrade and reduce potency and bioavailability. Vitamin K2-7 is an extremely active compound and sensitive to the manufacturing process as well as light and heat. Unlike other K2 supplements, Just Thrive® K2-7 is formulated carefully to withstand the bottling and encapsulating process and is not damaged by light and heat, making it the highest potency available on the retail market.
Just Thrive® Vitamin K2-7 is also the only product available on the retail market with the optimal therapeutic dose of 320 micrograms (mcg) per day. Generally, the highest dose of Vitamin K2 available on the market is 150mcg, but research suggests that a larger dose of 320 mcg is ideal for optimal carboxylation of proteins. Additionally, the 320mcg dose imparts major cardiac output and mitochondrial benefits.
Just Thrive® is the only vitamin K2 available on the retail market with the main essential elements for maximum effectiveness: magnesium and zinc gluconate. Without zinc and magnesium, K2 does not function optimally. As with vitamin K2, it is common to be deficient in these co-factors, even when consuming a healthy diet.
It is recommended to take two capsules daily.
