Designs for Health Vitamin D Complex 60c features 2000 IUs of vitamin D, along with efficacious amounts of the other fat-soluble vitamins, A, E (tocopherols and tocotrienols), and K (K1 and K2). While there are a myriad of beneficial health attributes associated with vitamin D, it should be recognized just how important it is to keep it in balance with these other vitamins. New research is emerging on the intricate interrelationships between them which should make us think twice about dosing any of these supraphysiologically without the others. Focusing on vitamin D without regard to the other fat-soluble vitamins can actually offset the delicate harmony needed for vitamin D to function optimally. Interestingly, what were once thought to be signs and symptoms of vitamin D toxicity are now understood to actually not be toxicities, but rather deficiency symptoms of one or more of vitamin D’s other fat-soluble counterparts. Simply stated, supplementing therapeutic amounts of vitamin D creates a greater need for vitamins A, E, and K. When looking at current research, it becomes clear that the importance lies in the critical balance necessary for these fat-soluble vitamins to work in harmony and support each other. Health problems can easily occur when one or more of these vitamins are not provided in sufficient amounts. Thus, supplementing with therapeutic doses of vitamin D without assuring supportive levels of vitamins A, E, & K can result in deficiency symptoms of one or more of these fat-soluble vitamins.
