Black Edged “D” is our flagship product and we are very proud of it. Black Edged takes no shortcuts. Our Vitamin “D” delivers 5,000 international units of whole food Vitamin D3 that is scientifically formulated to give Black people the Vitamin D they need. Our Vitamin D3 is formulated to help prevent:
- Heart Disease
Black Edged “D” works better because of its nutrient cofactors vitamin K2, magnesium, calcium, and zinc.
Science has shown that Vitamin K2 interacts with Vitamin D and Calcium to help prevent Heart disease. Black Edged D provides a potent “punch” of Vitamin D which helps your body absorb calcium. It is the addition of Vitamin K2 that really sets things off by helping prevent the build-up of calcium deposits in heart valves and arteries by essentially “directing traffic” and getting your calcium to the right places (your bones).
Magnesium is no joke. This mineral is used in more than 300 enzyme related biochemical reactions in your body. In fact, if you don’t have enough of this vital mineral the deficiency can trigger a host of illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, migraines and depression. Black Edged D contains Magnesium Citrate because it is a form of the mineral that is more readily absorbed by the body and can be used for bone health, neuromuscular function, cardiovascular health, and many other essentials of whole-body health. Magnesium will also help you keep your Edge.
It has been confirmed through epidemiological cancer studies that Vitamin D works with calcium to substantially reduce cancer risks. Vitamin D also works with calcium to help break down fat cells and slow the development of new fat cells. In other words, this “dynamic duo” helps to reduce body fat. As a result, we had to make sure calcium was in the mix.
We made sure zinc was included because it is a very important mineral that promotes a healthy immune system. Zinc also plays a critical role as a Vitamin D3 co-factor optimizer.
