Fat-soluble Vitamins

Story at-a-glance -

  • Vitamins A, D, and K cooperate synergistically not only with each other, but also with essential minerals like magnesium and zinc, with dietary fat, and with key metabolic factors like carbon dioxide and thyroid hormone. This level of complexity is a reminder that it is best to cooperate with the wisdom of nature by obtaining vitamins through nutrient-dense foods
  • Vitamins A, D, and K2 interact synergistically to support immune health, provide for adequate growth, support strong bones and teeth, and protect soft tissues from calcification. Magnesium is required for the production of all proteins, including those that interact with vitamins A and D
  • Many of the proteins involved in vitamin A metabolism and the receptors for both vitamins A and D only function correctly in the presence of zinc
  • Dietary fat is necessary for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins
