Dr. D's Ultra BioTurmeric, Pure Hemp Seed Oil and Vitamin D3 plus K2 is the ultimate joint health combination because together, they work not only to keep inflammation and pain under control, they work synergistically to help provide healthy support of muscles and joints.
Let’s take a brief look at each product individually before explaining the synergistic effects on Joint/Muscle health.
Dr. D’s Vitamin D3 plus K2
Vitamin D is a vital contributor to overall health. Vitamin D is famous for its critical role in healthy bone development and maintenance, but it is also an immune supporter and inflammation reducer. Vitamin D comes in two forms; vitamin D2(ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Humans obtain vitamin D3 from a few animal-sourced foods and sunlight. Vitamin D2 comes mainly from plant-based sources. It is hard to naturally obtain adequate amounts of vitamin D from food alone, and considering our long winters and lifestyle factors which keep us from being outdoors, supplementation of vitamin D is highly recommended. What is the difference between Vitamin D3 and Vitamin D2 supplements? Research supports that D3 tends to raise blood levels of the vitamin more and remains in the bloodstream longer than D2. Plus, it seems to be preferred among experts as it is the form that is already found naturally within the body.
Because of all the research behind K2, and the combined protective effects of vitamins D and K, we chose to pair the two, vitamins D3 and K2 (menaquinone-7) in our first vitamin supplement. Vitamin D is a vital contributor to overall health. What is so special about this supplement is that it made with Polyshield Technology™- the first of its kind, GLOBALLY. Polyshield Technology™ stems from the pomegranate peel, which research shows is packed with polyphenols. Polyphenols are antioxidants that exist in certain plant-based foods and contain anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. There are many scientific studies demonstrating the health benefits of pomegranate extracts including antibacterial, antiviral, blood lipid lowering and anti-inflammatory properties. The peel accounts for roughly 60% of the pomegranate fruit, and possesses more antioxidant activity than its seeds, juice and pulp.
Polyphenols extracted from the pomegranate peel are used in this shielding technology to protect the vitamins and minerals. The shield formed protects the core molecules and reduces interaction with the enzymatic reactions involved in metabolism. Due to its optimal stability, the shield allows its nutrients to remain protected as they travel through something called First-Pass metabolism, which is breakdown by the liver.
Dr. D’s Ultra BioTurmeric
If you are not already a turmeric consumer, I invite you to review the list of the potential health benefits provided by turmeric:
- Supports cardiovascular health
- Provides neuroprotective activity
- Supports the immune system
- Supports gastrointestinal health
- Provides liver protective activity
- Supports muscle and joint health
- Lowers PSA (prostate-specific-antigen) levels
- Regulates blood glucose levels
The potential health benefits of turmeric are endless as we continue to research and unravel more and more therapeutic potential of this ancient powerful and natural anti-inflammatory. Moreover, Dr. D’s Ultra BioTurmeric, a 100% turmeric-based supplement created with a special technology, exhibited 14-fold increase of free curcumin in blood plasma compared to standard 95% curcumin, according to research published in Material Science and Engineering.
Dr. D’s Pure Hemp Seed Oil
Anyone who wants to maintain good health or alleviate symptoms of a chronic condition can benefit from taking Hemp Seed Oil as it provides cardiovascular, neurological, immune and hormonal support. It contains a full spectrum of omegas: omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9 in a perfectly balanced ratio, optimizing therapeutic effects.
The benefit of Dr. D’s Hemp Seed Oil is that along with providing all of the essential omegas, it is plant-based, free of mercury/toxins, free of gastrointestinal irritation-causing peroxides, does not disturb the eco-system and does not oxidize or spoil as easily as fish oil. Taking Dr. D’s Hemp Seed Oil replaces the need for fish oil supplements.
Chlorophyll gives hemp seed oil its green colour. This is an important component of Dr. D’s Hemp Seed Oil as chlorophyll is known to be a natural anti-carcinogenic.

Finally, Dr. D’s Hemp Seed Oil is not only gluten-free and vegan, but it is also pesticide and herbicide free, and is non-GMO.
The Ultimate Joint Health Solution
As you can see, all 3 of these products are loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants are important because they prevent or slow down damage to cells caused by something called free radicals, which are unstable waste molecules that the body produces in response to stresses such as smoking, processed foods and pollution. This therefore helps to reduce the negative effects of wear and tear on the joints overtime.
Additionally, these products also provide powerful, natural anti-inflammatory activity. Taking anti-inflammatory supplements is imperative for joint and muscle health, as inflammation can be sporadic and end up in joints which can cause pain, stiffness and can even erode the joints if chronic enough.
Most importantly, you can be sure that the technologies behind these products is robust and science-based, meaning you're actually absorbing the powerful ingredients, ensuring your joints and muscles are benefitting from supplementation.
Don't just take our word for it! The University of Manitoba is currently studying the efficacy of the combination of these products and how they can help combat autoimmune disease such as Rheumatoid Arthritis in indigenous populations!
