A plant-based way to enhance the many benefits of Vitamin D3 – without sun damage.

PR Newswire, Jacksonville, FL – Today, Nutritional Roots launched D3+K2. This plant-based combination of Vitamins D3, K2 and Omega 3 DHA is a 3-for-1 supplement designed to conveniently fulfill your body’s essential need for Vitamin D.


Vitamin D is actually a hormone that the body can produce from sunlight. The problem is that excessive sunlight damages our skin. People need Vitamin D without sunburns, wrinkles and the risk of cancer. So people turned to Vitamin D3 supplements. However, most of these products overlooked a critical fact: Vitamin D is fat soluble. Without a lipid – aka fat cell – to ride on, Vitamin D won’t travel through the intestinal wall and circulate throughout the body. 


With D3+K2, Nutritional Roots cleverly combines Vitamin D3 and Omega-3 DHA to create a new standard for conveniently delivering everything you need in one daily capsule. And unlike most Vitamin D3 supplements, D3+K2 can be taken on the go – with or without food. 


Vitamin D3 plays an important role in supporting your immune system, and it works with Vitamin K2 – which is also fat soluble – to support healthy bones. The essential fatty acid Omega-3 DHA also plays a role in immune response and supports brain & heart health. 


Nutritional Roots found plant-powered solutions to simplify all the complex interactions and design a Vitamin D supplement made with what people really need. Everything is plant-based. The Vitamin D3 is sourced from a hybrid botanical called lichen. Their lichen is sustainably harvested from mountains in Oregon. The formula also includes fermented Vitamin K2, Omega-3 DHA from algae and a blend of fermented vegetables and herbs rich in Vitamin D or Vitamin K. 


The result is 5,000 IU of Vitamin D3 and 300 mg of Omega-3 DHA per serving. These doses are the daily recommended levels by our founding medical doctor Todd J. Pesek, M.D. Through his research and decades of experience with plant-based nutrition, he found 5,000 IUs of Vitamin D3 consistently maintained the best levels of Vitamin D in patient’s blood work. 


“D3+K2 gives everyone the most out of taking a D3 supplement” said Co-Founder Justin Root. “We packed Dr. Pesek’s recommended dose of D3, K2 and DHA into a single capsule. We’re giving people three products in one, and all at the great price of our previous D3. Just $22.50” 


The increased potency means fewer capsules. This makes it easier for people to take while helping Nutritional Roots reduce their environmental footprint. The switch to smaller packaging allowed them to use 19% less plastic. The weight of each bottle was reduced by 25%. These changes will lower their carbon emissions from shipping by an estimated 30%. 

D3+K2 is launching this spring in select retail partners and available online at and Amazon.
