Frequently asked Questions
 
Why Vitamin D and Vitamin K?
 
Vitamin K2 is a cofactor for Vitamin D metabolism. Body stores of both nutrients sometimes need to be topped up on a daily basis for optimal health benefits.

Can I have too much Vitamin D?
 
Yes, although for the body to reach toxic levels of Vitamin D, very high amounts would need to be taken. You are unlikely to consume too much Vitamin D from a supplement when used at the recommended dosage, although make sure that the total amount of Vitamin D per day from all supplements does not exceed 1000IU. If you are taking medications consult your GP before taking any supplements.

Does my racial heritage and skin colour affect how much Vitamin D can absorb from the sun?

Yes, darker skin tones contain more melanin pigmentation compared to fairer skins. Melanin lessens how much of the sun’s UV rays the skin can absorb and convert to Vitamin D.
 
Do my regular pregnancy supplements provide the right dose of Vitamin D?
 
Generally, a multivitamin will not contain adequate levels of Vitamin D and calcium for the increased needs of pregnancy. Multivitamins usually contain a little bit of a lot of ingredients. Therefore it is usually more beneficial to use a product that specifically provides vitamin D and calcium in higher amounts. Just make sure you check the labels and not exceed the recommended daily amount from all supplements of 1000IU.

Should my kids be taking a Vitamin D supplement?

Adequate Vitamin D is vital for bone growth, maintenance and development in children. If your child is not receiving sufficient Vitamin D through adequate sun exposure and Vitamin D rich foods, a supplement may be beneficial.

Is it OK to take a Vitamin D supplement while I am trying to conceive, during pregnancy and lactation?

Yes, in fact there is an increased need for Vitamin D at this time. Ensure you follow the product’s recommended dosage and make sure you don't exceed a total of 1000 IU of Vitamin D3 per day from all supplements.
