Why risk damage to your
joints and arteries?

Plant Based - No Gross Byproducts
Complete D3 Support for Bones
Essential Vitamin K2 Complex
Protects Joints & Arteries
Our Smarter Nutrition Vitamin D3 formula has everything you need,
and nothing you don’t.
The truth of the matter is that...
...if you’re taking a standalone Vitamin D supplement, you could unintentionally be doing more harm than good. There is one ingredient that you absolutely MUST take with your Vitamin D3 supplement, but before we get into the science,
take a look at the things you DON’T want in your supplement.
GROSS ANIMAL BYPRODUCTS
Most vitamin D3 supplements are derived from bodily fluids secreted by sheep’s glands
Other products marketed as “Vegan Vitamin D”
are actually vitamin D2, deemed by researchers
as “not suitable for supplementation”
Chemicals like magnesium stearate and stearic
acid are added to supplements to make production machinery run at maximum speeds
Standalone vitamin D3 supplements can cause calcium buildup in parts of the body that leads to risk and disease
Smarter Nutrition has pioneered the Vitamin D3 supplement that
big-name store brands SHOULD have discovered already.
The news that the vitamin D can be dangerous
is a wake-up call.
Most vitamin D3 supplements are single ingredient products designed to help increase calcium absorption in the body. However, when taking vitamin D3 on its own, there is a risk that all the excess calcium that’s absorbed can be improperly distributed to joints and arteries, where it has the potential to calcify and cause disease.
Smarter Nutrition Vitamin D3 has all the benefits and none of the risk.
Smarter Vitamin D3 doesn’t just increase calcium absorption, we’ve utilized the latest scientific research to create a formula that combines the optimal amount of Vitamin D3 with an essential vitamin K2 complex for protection.
While vitamin D3 works to pull calcium into the bloodstream, vitamin K2 is what directs calcium into the bones and away from joints and arteries. For healthy calcium absorption vitamin D3 simply must be balanced by a proper amount of vitamin K2.
The Smarter Nutrition
Smarter formulation, better benefits
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin that affects as many as 2,000 genes in your body. It has many important functions, but one of the most vital is regulating calcium for healthy bones and teeth.
If you’re not getting enough vitamin D, you’re at risk of developing bone abnormalities such as soft bones (osteomalacia) or fragile bones (osteoporosis). Vitamin D also helps fight off colds and other immune attackers — it even plays a role in maintaining mood and warding off depression! Vegetarians and vegans are at especially high risk for vitamin D deficiency.
Smarter Nutrition Vitamin D3 is a complete formula with vitamin K2 complex to help direct calcium out of joints and arteries and into your bones where it needs to go. For total bone support and arterial protection, vitamin D3 simply must be taken in conjunction with a quality vitamin K2 complex.
Our plant-based formula is a smarter alternative to products that contain unwanted animal byproducts and only deliver part of the benefits your body needs.*
✓ Strong bones*
✓ Healthy arteries*
✓ Protect circulatory function*

Unlike other products that come from sheep's glands, Smarter Nutrition Vitamin D3 doesn’t contain hidden ingredients. It’s sustainably sourced from nutrition-packed plants called lichens. Lichens produce a potent, clean vitamin D3 that’s naturally free from contaminants and undesirable animal byproducts.
Smarter Nutrition Vitamin D3 is encapsulated in vegetarian softgels with organic extra virgin coconut oil for faster bioavailability than powdered products. The medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) in coconut oil provide quick energy for the body and enable fast absorption of fat-soluble vitamins D3 and K2.
It’s the optimal blend of ingredients for safety
and maximum benefits.
What does vitamin D3 do?
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble nutrient that affects as many as 2,000 genes in your body. It has many important functions, but one of the most vital is calcium absorption to maintain healthy bones and teeth. Other functions that vitamin D3 supports include:
Are there different types of vitamin D?
There are two types of vitamin D, vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol). Vitamin D3 is the fully activated form that is identical to vitamin D produced in the body by exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D3 is highly bioavailable and considered superior to other forms of vitamin D.
Vitamin D2, on the other hand, is not readily bioavailable. In fact, a report published in The American Journal of Nutrition states that “ergocalciferol should not be regarded as a nutrient suitable for supplementation or fortification.”
Where do vitamin D supplements come from?
Smarter Vitamin D3 is unlike other vitamin D products. It contains the superior, fully activated form (cholecalciferol), and is uniquely derived from a plant source called lichens. Smarter Vitamin D3 is vegan, all natural, and suitable for any diet or lifestyle.
Most vitamin D supplements marketed as “vegan” are derived from irradiated mushrooms, and they are vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), the inactive form that research shows to be less bioavailable than vitamin D3.
The vast majority of vitamin D3 supplements are derived from bodily fluids secreted through the sebaceous glands of sheep, and are not suitable for vegans or vegetarians. Smarter Vitamin D3 is made from plants, not from animal byproducts
Why don’t other brands use plant-sourced vitamin D3?
The main reasons most supplement companies do not use plant-based vitamin D3 are those of cost and scale. Vitamin D3 from lichens costs significantly more to grow and produce compared to the low cost sheep-sourced vitamin D3. The vitamin market is huge, so it would not be of interest economically for most brands to offer their customers a superior product if it results in significantly lower profits.
Can vitamin D3 supplements be harmful?
In short, yes. Most vitamin D3 supplements are single ingredient products designed to help increase calcium absorption in the body. However, when taking vitamin D3 on its own, there is a risk that excess calcium can be improperly distributed to joints and arteries, where it has the potential to calcify and cause disease.
Smarter Vitamin D3 doesn’t just increase calcium absorption, our D3 supplement is formulated with essential vitamin K2 and supporting ingredients that work synergistically with your body to regulate calcium levels and protect joints and arteries.
How does Smarter Vitamin D3 with vitamin K2 complex provide protection?
Smarter Nutrition has utilized the latest scientific research to create a formula that combines the optimal amount of Vitamin D3 with an essential vitamin K2 complex for protection.
While vitamin D3 works to pull calcium into the bloodstream, vitamin K2 is what directs calcium into the bones and away from joints and arteries. Without vitamin K2, there is the risk for calcification. For healthy calcium absorption vitamin D3 simply must be balanced by a proper amount of vitamin K2.
What ingredients are in Smarter Vitamin D3 and why?

What is vitamin D deficiency?
If your body doesn’t get enough vitamin D to keep it healthy, this is called vitamin D deficiency. Severe vitamin D deficiency can sometimes cause cause soft, thin, and brittle bones. A long-term lack of vitamin D has also been linked to conditions such as cancer, asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, Alzheimer’s, and autoimmune diseases.
What are the symptoms of vitamin D deficiency?

Can I take lower or higher doses of Smarter Vitamin D3?
Our suggested dose to start is 5,000 IU per 2 softgels, and is based on recent studies show that for people deficient in vitamin D, doses of 5,000 IU for 3 months were more effective than lower doses for returning blood serum concentrations to optimal levels.
Each softgel is 2,500 IU and 1 softgel would considered an appropriate dose for maintenance.
We realize that many people may be seeking higher doses of Vitamin D3 than suggested here. Always consult your health provider if you are considering taking a higher dose.
