Try nutrient dense, Vitamin K rich Emu Oil from sustainably pasture raised Australian Emu!
We have been waiting a few years for a high quality emu oil capsule supplement and now we have one! Smidge, one of our trusted brands, just released a high vitamin K emu oil from Heritage emu.
Vitamin K was first discovered by Dr. Westin A Price back in the 1930's. He called it Activator X because of it's ability to activate certain minerals and other nutrients, most notably vitamin D. There is a whole host of potential benefits associated with Vitamin K.
Vitamin K plays an influential role in many important human functions including:*
- utilization of minerals and vitamins
- growth and development
- protection against tooth decay
- protection against heart disease
- proper brain function
What are the potential health benefits of taking a natural, whole food Emu Oil Supplement?
Loaded with naturally occurring Vitamin K2-MK4, Emu oil is a very nutrient dense oil vital to collagen production, bone health, heart health, skin elasticity and so much more! Vitamin K2 is a key player in the proper absorption and utilization of many other nutrients. Vitamin D is one of the biggies and one we need more of as we age.
We get a nutrient dense emu oil from thes naturally raised emu. It is rich in naturally occurring:
- Vitamin K2-MK4 – Roughly 6.4 mcg per serving
- Omegas 3,6,7 & 9
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin D3
- CLA – conjugated linoleic acid
Why do we love Smidge Emu Oil Softgels?
Smidge is one of the companies we've trusted for years. There is never any junk – no fillers, flow agents or additives of any kind. Smidge Emu Oil is a minimally processed, natural oil.
These Emu live in immense open paddocks where they can freely roam, eating bugs and grasses. What's more, these Heritage birds are from the highest quality breeding stock from a family that has been breeding emu for 30 years. There is never any retired zoo stock.
Each small batch of emu oil is carefully collected and immediately low heat processed. It is not uncommon for cheap brands to freeze the oil for later processing. This damages some of the nutrients in the emu oil. And many also use high heat and/or toxic chemical processes. These also denature some of the nutrients, leaving it with far fewer nutrients than a minimally processed, low heat processed oil.

Why is Vitamin K2-MK4 the best form of vitamin K supplement?
Dr. Westin A Price wasn't sure the compound he was studying was a vitamin and named it Activator X and also referred to it as the X-Factor. What he realized back then was that this nutrient helped other nutrients achieve a higher absorption rate, especially Vitamin D. Years later, scientists renamed it Vitamin K2 MK4.
Vitamin K2-MK4 is the best form of Vitamin K because the other forms, including Vitamin K1 and Vitamin K2-MK7, cannot be used by our bodies before they are converted to vitamin K2-MK4. And, unfortunately, a good portion of these forms never get converted for use. The health of our gut microbiomes plays an important role in the conversion rates. Only about 20% of K1 gets absorbed in the best case scenarios! Its conversion rate is rather low at only 5 to 25% getting converted!
Smidge Emu Oil naturally contains lots of K2 MK4 – the highly bioavailable form of Vitamin K – no conversion is necessary!
