The Vitamin D3 Revolution
Vitamin D's influence on key biological functions vital to
one's health and well-being mandates that Vitamin D3 supplementation can no
longer be ignored by individuals striving to achieve and maintain a greater
state of health. The research on this vitamin keeps coming: cardiovascular
health, immune support, bone and joint health, and much more.* This advancement
in scientific knowledge about D3 is especially notable when we consider that we
are living in a time of widespread Vitamin D insufficiency.1 Formulated by John
Cannell, MD, Purity’s Vitamin D complex is a synergistic blend of targeted
nutrients to complement many of Vitamin D3’s health benefits.
Why Dr. Cannell's Advanced D is Best in Class
Advanced D™ provides a powerful dose of cholecalciferol
(Vitamin D3) backed by nutrients that work in tandem with this crucial vitamin
to support the health of numerous systems within the body. At the foundation of
its design as an answer to widespread Vitamin D deficiency are found a set of
other nutrients - key cofactors - added to compliment the physiological actions
of D3. Dr Cannell’s Advanced D™ orchestrates combined actions to make sure that
optimal influence is present towards bone, muscle, and metabolic function.*
The Advanced D Difference - Key CoFactors
Vitamin D is a team player inside the human body, relying on
proper levels of other nutrients - key cofactors - to fulfill its potential in
supporting several areas of health. Magnesium is needed by enzymes that metabolize Vitamin D. Magnesium is another
nutrient that may run low in the diet. Low dietary Magnesium can
contribute to lower levels of circulating Vitamin D.
Dr Cannell’s Advanced D™ presents a highly bioavailable form
of the mineral magnesium as Magnesium Citrate. Zinc plays a role in the Vitamin
D receptor, and Boron supports Vitamin D metabolism.*
Going Beyond D3
In addition to the powerful dosage of Vitamin D3, Dr.
Cannell’s Advanced D Formula™ delivers a combination of several cutting edge
nutritional ingredients shown to synergistically help promote proper Vitamin D
metabolism and utilization in the body.
As is the case with Vitamin D, knowledgeable healthcare
providers are starting to learn that contemporary dietary patterns leave much of
the population with insufficient magnesium consumption. Low dietary magnesium
may also contribute to a lower level of circulating Vitamin D—yet another
barrier to conserving an ideal, strong skeletal structure.2 Magnesium is
involved in over 300 enzymatic processes in human cells, and Dr. Cannell’s
Advanced D Formula™ features Magnesium Citrate because it is a form of the
mineral shown to be advantageous in terms of absorption.3 Magnesium is well
known for its contributions to bone health, neuromuscular function,
cardiovascular health, and many other essentials of whole-body health, while
also becoming recognized for its relation to healthy energy levels and other
aspects of a normal metabolism.4, 5*
Taurine is an important amino acid found in many organs, being
most concentrated in the heart and the retina of the eye. Taurine is active in
muscle function, as well as in maintaining optimal function of nerve tissue,
lending itself to neurotransmitter balance. Extensive experimental information
has been gathered (from both animal and human studies) in examining the
positive, beneficial relationship between taurine supplementation and
Don't Forget Boron
A British scientist in the late 20th century looked at data
from several countries and realized that joint and bone health are adversely
affected by modern agricultural and food processing practices. Specifically, he
was concerned about lower amounts of the element Boron in our food supply.7, 8
Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D Formula™ includes FruiteX-B®, a patented boron/calcium
complex that has been shown to support normal Vitamin D metabolism, maintain
joint comfort and flexibility, and promote healthy bones.* Pilot clinical studies
described improvement in Vitamin D status and more freedom of movement—an
expression of joint function—in subjects consuming FruiteX-B®:.9
Support for Your Bones and Muscles*
Without adequate Vitamin D intake, the body cannot properly
metabolize Calcium. Vitamin D strengthens bones and also may enhance muscle
strength because of its direct effect on calcium transport in muscles. Because
of its unique interplay with Calcium, Vitamin D can support the health of both
of these important structures. Other ingredients in Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D
Formula™ further support the skeletal and muscular systems.*
Powerful Immune Support*
Vitamin D also has an interesting role as a regulator of the
immune system.10 D3 has unique immune-modulating properties that can support
long-term health and wellness by supporting innate immunity. For additional
support, Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D Formula™ contains Zinc, another immune-supporting
nutrient. The poor performance of immune cells seen in zinc deficiency
emphasizes the importance of this mineral for good health.11*
Heart and Cardiovascular Support*
Recent research is increasingly pointing towards the
importance of Vitamin D in maintaining healthy heart function, as individuals
having a better Vitamin D status tend to have more healthy function of the
cardiovascular system.12 This D3 premise of Dr. Cannell’s formulation is
complimented by the Zinc, Quercetin and FruiteX-B® functioning as antioxidants,
doing their parts in enhancing the stability of cell membranes throughout the
Now Available Without Vitamin K2
Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D is now available without Vitamin K.
For those customers on blood thinning medications or advised by their doctors to
avoid Vitamin K, this is the ideal Vitamin D supplement for you.*

know of nature, it is unlikely such a system evolved by chance.
