There are some nutrients that are particularly important in supplementation due to inadequate intake from the normal diet or other factors. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, as well as vitamins D3 and K2, are well ahead of them.
To help you meet your daily need for the micronutrients vitamin D3, K2 and the polyunsaturated omega-3 fats EPA and DHA, we at MORE NUTRITION provide precisely these nutrients in high-quality form with our product ESSENTIALS O3-D3-K2 and coordinated dosing are available.

- Micro-encapsulated all-trans vitamin K2-MK7
- Ideal for daily use
- Without preservative substances
Ingredients & effects: What do the ESSENTIALS do?
Even with a conscious and balanced diet, it is not always possible to optimally cover the need for important nutrients. The supply with them - as with vitamin D3 - also depends on external circumstances or one would have to consume certain foods in very large quantities to cover them in order to cover the need. In the case of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, that would be a lot of fatty cold-water fish, if possible from wild-caught.
For this reason, we developed the ESSENTIALS as the first MORE NUTRITION product. A product that simply and safely supplies you with the important vitamins D3 and K2 as well as the omega-3 fats EPA and DHA. Of course, this supplement does not replace a balanced diet that is important for the body and that should be tailored to your needs.
But why are the ESSENTIALS so important?
Vitamin D is one of the fat-soluble vitamins. In contrast to the water-soluble vitamins, the fat-soluble vitamins are absorbed together with fats, which is why the absorption of the vitamins can be increased through the simultaneous absorption of fat through food.
Vitamin D3 has a very special position among the many vitamins, as it is covered by the body's own production under optimal conditions. These body's own production is only possible through exposure to UVB light. This means that your body is only able to produce vitamin D3 itself with the help of UVB radiation from the sun. In our latitudes, however, the UVB radiation only reaches from Spring to the end of summer to produce enough vitamin D. If there is enough sun, bare skin and if you do not use sunscreen, the vitamin D is then synthesized under the skin. Vitamin D can also be absorbed through diet, but it is only found in small amounts in food.
That in our latitudes and due to the modern lifestyle the UVB light exposure is insufficient and so those The body's own production is insufficient for many, can be seen in the result of the National Consumption Study II (NVS II). According to NVS II, over 90% of women and over 80% of men did not even reach the minimum intake recommended by the German Nutrition Society.1 The DGE recommends for Adults in the absence of the body's own synthesis, the intake of at least 20 µg / day.2 Overdosing should also be avoided. The Maximum daily amount of vitamin D was on 100 µg / day set.3
If not enough vitamin D is synthesized, this vitamin should be taken in addition to counteract a vitamin deficiency. Since the vitamin contributes to some important functions in our body, are in our product 25 µg vitamin D3 per 2 capsules included so that you can easily and, above all, adequately cover your needs.
Vitamin D, together with vitamin K, is particularly important for a healthy skeleton, because both contribute to Maintenance of normal bones at. Vitamin D also helps maintain one normal muscle function and more normal teeth at. It also has a function in the Cell division and contributes to one normal absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus at.
The most famous vitamin K compounds are Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) and K2 (menaquinone). Like vitamin D, vitamin K is also fat soluble. While vitamin K1 is found in many plant-based foods such as cabbage or leafy vegetables, vitamin K2 is formed by bacteria and is mainly found in animal foods such as meat or dairy products.
The vitamin is absorbed in the intestine and then transported via the blood to the liver, where it can carry out its main task. Vitamin K mainly contributes to one normal blood clotting and to Maintenance of normal bones and should therefore be supplemented through the diet if there is insufficient intake.
According to the DGE, the daily requirement for adults is included, depending on age and gender 50 µg and 80 µg.5 There are no data available for setting an official upper limit for vitamin K2. According to the EFSA, studies showed no evidence of harmful effects in connection with an additional intake of vitamin K in the form of phylloquinone of up to 10 mg / day.6 The Expert Group on Vitamins and Minerals (EVM) has set 1,000 µg as a guideline value for a safe total daily intake for the additional intake from food supplements for adults.7
We rely on that with our ESSENTIALS Micro-encapsulated all-trans vitamin K2-MK7. This is a very stable form of vitamin K2, which also has a very high bioavailability. Vitamin K2 is broken down unprotected in certain formulations with other substances or under certain environmental conditions. The very bioavailable form of the K2-MK7 is particularly susceptible to this. That is why we only consider microencapsulated vitamin K2-MK7 so that you are really supplied with the amount that is on the label. The compound used can be used well by your body. The recommended dose of 2 capsules is an amount of 50 μg vitamin K2 contain.
Omega-3 fatty acids
Fatty acids serve our body, among other things, as a source of energy and play an important role in our metabolism. The polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids are essential for us and must ingested through food because our organism cannot synthesize them itself.
The most important omega-3 fatty acids are:
- Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA)
- Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
- Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
The two long-chain omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA Contrary to popular belief, our bodies can only use plant-based ALA in very small quantities, which is e.g. present in linseed oil.8 Therefore, an additional intake of EPA and DHA is recommended for adequate care even by the largest cardiological societies in Europe and the USA, the European Society of Cardiology and American Heart Association.
Since the omega-3 fatty acids are components of our cell membrane, they also have an influence on their properties. The fatty acids are also precursors to some hormones and other substances in the body. DHA contributes to Maintenance of normal eyesight at. The effect arises with a daily intake of 250 mg DHA a. In addition, DHA contributes Maintaining normal brain function at, which also occurs with an ingested amount of 250 mg DHA. EPA and DHA wear both to one normal heart function at. The effect on the heart function arises from a daily intake of 250 mg EPA / DHA a.
One serving contains ESSENTIALS so that the omega-3 fatty acids can develop their full effect 500 mg EPA and 250 mg DHA. We also use the fish oil in its natural form Triglyceride form, as this has a higher bioavailability and thus a better absorption compared to the ethyl ester form in the body is made possible.
