Vitamin B and D supplements for a healthy family

What roles do vitamins B and D play in your health? Find out below and learn more about Land Art‘s organic B-Complex and Vitamin D3 + K2 supplements for adults and children.

Vitamines of the B group

The B-Complex represents the eight vitamins of the B group. Even if each of these vitamins has a specific function, it is recommended to combine them for better assimilation and efficiency. The benefits of B vitamins are: they help the body convert nutrients into energy, they support the nervous system (thus helping to fight stress or symptoms of depression), they promote the formation of connective tissues and red blood cells, they prevent certain cardiovascular diseases, etc. In addition to vitamins B3 and B12, which are found in small amounts in the body, B vitamins must be supplied regularly by one’s diet – grains, seeds, nuts, fruits, dried or green vegetables, dairy, nutritional yeast, offal, etc. – or through supplementing, since they are not stored by the body and are excreted in the urine.

B-Complex

Designed for the whole family, this sugar and gluten-free B vitamin supplement is easy to consume: it can be taken as is or integrated into smoothies. B-Complex is available in three complete and balanced formulas that help the body to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins for the maintenance of good health, in addition to helping energize the body in case of fatigue.

- Original: Peach and apple flavored, it is suitable for kids and adults alike.

- Energy: Orange and cream flavored, it is enriched with plant extracts known to boost energy levels.

- Zen: Pomegranate flavored, it is infused with plant extracts that have anti-stress properties.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is an organic substance essential for the proper functioning of the body. It maximizes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus by the intestines and kidneys, plays a crucial role in our immune system, ensures the strength of the human skeleton, promotes growth in children, prevents osteoporosis in adolescents and adults, etc. Vitamin D is called the “sunshine vitamin” because the skin naturally produces it when exposed to UVB rays. It is also found in certain foods – salmon, tuna, trout, cow’s milk and fortified soy beverage – but the normal daily consumption of these foods does not meet the recommended daily dose. Therefore it is advisable to take vitamin D supplements, especially during periods with fewer hours of sunshine, from October to April.

Organic vitamin D3 + K2

This orange flavored liquid supplement  for adults contains naturally sourced vitamin D3 (from lanolin), naturally sourced vitamin K2 MK7 (menaquinone 7) and organic sunflower oil. It is effective in activating the immune response, helping calcium absorption and binding to bones, stimulating osteocalcin (which plays a major role in calcification of bones and teeth), preventing calcification of arteries, and reducing the risk of fractures, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers (breast and prostate).
