Salugea’s DKE + Magnesio is the only food supplement containing fat-soluble vitamins D3, K3 and E + Magnesium.
Who is it for?
- If you spend a lot of time indoor and do not get enough daylight, which promotes the natural production of Vitamin D.
- If you wish to boost your Immune system.
- If you wish to strengthen your bones and teeth using natural remedies only.
- If you are a woman suffering from painful periods (dysmenorrhea ).
- If you are a woman going through menopause and wish to keep your bones healthy.
- If you want to become more “stress-resistant”.
- If you need magnesium against fatigue.
- If you are looking for a powerful anti-age supplement.
- For older men and women to keep osteopenia and osteoporosis (bone loss) at bay.
What happens if you spend too much time away from daylight?
We spend most of our lifetime indoor, whether it is inside an office, at the gym, or at home... We usually spend three quarters of our lives away from the sun, which unfortunately deeply affects our health.
Vitamin D is a steroid hormone produced from cholesterol when your skin is exposed to the sun. That is why it is called “the sunshine vitamin.” However, sun exposure rarely provides adequate amounts of vitamin D, thus making it necessary to obtain some more Vitamin D also from food (mainly salmon, errings, sardines and eggs ) and food supplements.
50% of the Italian population is estimated to be lacking in Vitamin D, particularly in winter months. This is even more true for the elderly who tend to spend more time at home and get less sun exposure. Besides, their skin is less reactive to sun rays which makes the Vitamin D production even more difficult. Also smoking, stress and bad eating habits all contribute to lower Vitamin D levels in our bloodstream.
What happens if vitamin D levels drop?
Our little ones might suffer from rickets, in adults instead it can damage the heart and blood vessels, or weaken the Immune system.
If you include a vitamin D supplement in your diet, you will:
- Increase calcium absorption from kidneys and intestines
- Boost your immune system
- Protect your heart and circulatory system
- Prevent cellular degeneration
Make sure you choose Vitamin D3 ( i.e. Cholecalciferol) which is best absorbed by our bodies.
Strengthen bones and teeth with Vitamins D3 and K2
One of vitamin D main tasks is to help calcium absorption from kidneys and intestines. Vitamin D alone is not enough though to ensure the perfect bone condition. As a matter of fact, vitamin D only intake might cause calcium build-ups elsewhere in the body (e.g. your arteries or joints), but in the bones.
To avoid this, it is important to combine Vitamin D3 with K2 (i.e. Menaquinone). The latter is an activator of a specific protein called osteocalcin which promotes calcium deposit in the bones and teeth.
Besides, the combination of D3+K2 has been proved to increase bone density, which is particularly beneficial in case of bone loss (osteopenia and osteoporosis). Vitamin K2 is also considered to be the most physiologically active form of Vitamin K inside the human body.
Why add Vitamin E and Magnesium?
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, i.e. it counteracts the effects of free radicals and promotes cellular renewal. Any lack of Vitamin E can negatively affect the nervous system and metabolism. Its anti-inflammatory action is also important to preserve the bone density and matrix.
A regular intake of a combination of Vitamins E+ D3+K2 in one single product will provide you with everything you need to preserve and strengthen your bones and ensure your body complete wellbeing.
Last but not least: Magnesium. This salt is well-known for its positive effects on fatigue and mood swings. Few of you know though that magnesium, when combined with vitamin K2, directs calcium where it is most needed, that is in bones and teeth, thus preventing any calcium build-up in other tissues (e.g. arteries or joints). Beside, Magnesium citrate (the organic type) acts as a pH modulator to avoid acidosis which can lead to a general body inflammation. In fact, an excess of acid in the blood entails the bone matrix breakdown to release calcium as a pH buffer, which in turn generates bone inflammation.

DKE + Magnesio: come si assume
To maximise the beneficial effects of DKE + Magnesio we advise you to take 2 capsules a day which provide the equivalent of 2.000 IU of D3 vitamin daily. Capsules must be taken during or after meals:
- During/after lunch: 1 capsule of DKE + Magnesio
- During/after dinner: 1 capsule of DKE + Magnesio
Please note: in case of severe Vitamin D deficiency or bone loss, we suggest that you take DKE+Magnesio on a regular basis for at least 3 months, two or three times a year.
For How Long
You will experience some beneficial effects already after the first month. We suggest that you carry on with the treatment for at least three months, so that the results you have achieved will last longer.
At the end of each month, take a 5-day break from the treatment before starting again. At the end of the 3rd month, your break will be longer, about 10 days or two weeks. The break is recommended, not compulsory. After a stop, our herbal active ingredients become even more effective.
What happens at the end of the 3rd month? Whilst you are having your break, give us a call or write to us to let us know how you got on with our product. Together with our Naturopathic Doctors, you will find out about the next steps to take in order to maintain the results you have achieved.
Please note: every person is unique, so any treatment can be adapted to your personal requirements. Just call or write to us if you have any doubts. We are here to assist you!

VNR: Valori Nutritivi di Riferimento
Salugea’s DKE + Magnesio food supplement is needed when:
- You spend a lot of time indoor and not enough time in the sun to enable your body to make its own Vitamin D.
- You need to boost your immune system to fight off viruses and bacteria, especially in winter.
- You are in menopause and you need to compensate bone loss due to a drop in the production of female hormones (oestrogen and progesterone) or when your body stops producing them.
- You wish to keep your bones strong and healthy.
- You want to support your cardio-vascular system and prevent atherosclerosis, a condition where the walls of the arteries harden because of calcium deposits. In this case, it might be useful to add a food supplement that controls the level of fat in the blood.
DKE + Magnesio has a unique formula as it contains highly bioavailable vitamins D, K and E. All the ingredients are natural and obtained from vegetable extracts and magnesium is the organic type.
