Emulsi-D3 Synergy by Designs For Health is another exciting product which my doctor advised as an essential component of my Wellness Plan! I have always thought that since I am in the sun often with my husband on the boat that even I was getting enough of this sunshine vitamin. I "heard" I needed to stay in the sun 15-20 minutes without sunblock to absorb the Vitamin D effectively. I did that for years and just assumed living in sunny South Florida was enough for me to skip this vitamin (other than in a multivitamin I used to take).
My doctor wisely explained the need for me to take this product for life. At first, I gagged on the taste. He told me to double the dosage (1 mil which is 1 dropper is considered a serving). I tried and tried but the syrupy sweet fruity product was not good. I told my doctor about my unpleasant struggle to swallow this "supplement". He told me he enjoyed the taste and consistency. I told him he was crazy. We had a good laugh and then he proceeded to sing the praises of this Designs For Health essential product,
First, it is gluten free. It contains K1 and K2. My understanding of K1 is that it serves as an anticoagulant. K1 is available in leafy green vegetables. However, word on the street is that our bodies only absorb about 10% of K from the leafy green veggies we eat.
K2 can be absorbed from cheese and aids in cardiovascular health. K2 appears to improve vascular blood flow to the brain. This is personal to me, as my dad first suffered Parkinson's and now has Alzheimer's. He did not have to be a victim of either disease and now with what my doctor has shared with me - I will not have to have dementia later in life. I am empowered and committed to spending the time and energy (as well as $$) on prevention.
I did call Designs For Health because I was concerned about the source of Vitamin E ( I am allergic to Alpha Tocopherol). The Vitamin E is sourced from palm. Great news!
With the above benefits in mind, I did find a solution to the gagilicious (being honest) flavor and consistency of Emulsi-D3 Synergy. Since I need to take this product at night (you take the oily/fatty supplements with the fattiest meal of the day), I take it at the end of my meal with seltzer water. I drop two droppers at the back of my throat and then slug down seltzer water. Better! The fizz somehow distracted me from the taste and now ingesting is doable!
Not every product I review is 100% pleasant or effective. However, the benefits far outweigh the negative aspects of this product. I also appreciate that I can reuse this bottle as the label peels off easily. I use the bottle for my homemade remedies and give as gifts as well. Recycling with purpose....
Designs For Health is an amazing company and I am so pleased to invest in this supplement each month. Emulsi-D3 Synergy does a body good!
