Vitamin D3 with K2 is designed to:
- Provide the most bioavailable forms of vitamins D and K
- Boost immune function
- Promote bone health and proper calcium storage
- Maintain healthy cardiometabolic function and support blood sugar balance already within normal levels
- Support healthy blood circulation
Most people do not consume enough vitamin K to support optimal functioning.
Approximately 70% of the western population is deficient in vitamin K2. Compromised intestinal absorption can also lead to insufficient K2 levels leaving calcium available to be exported out of bone and into other tissues. Other medications such as antibiotics, cholesterol-lowering medications and laxatives have also been found to contribute to a deficiency of vitamin K.
Optimizing immune function with D and K.
Recent studies have shown that both vitamins D and K impart immune-modulating effects. In the Framingham Offspring Study, one of the longest standing studies on generational health, higher serum levels of vitamins D and K were associated with stronger immune function and a balanced inflammatory response. In a 2011 study, vitamin K was also found to suppress various markers of the immune system.
K2 is critical for cardiovascular health.
Vitamin K plays a key role in supporting the cardiovascular system as well as blood sugar balance already within normal levels. In a large population study, researchers found that those who consumed high amounts of K2 had significantly better cardiovascular health markers compared to those given vitamin K1. Studies have also shown vitamin K supports healthy blood sugar metabolism.
Bone health depends on vitamin D AND vitamin K.
While vitamin D has long been known to assist calcium absorption, it is vitamin K which guides this calcium to bones and prevents their absorption into organs, joint spaces and arteries. A randomized study which split 172 women into a vitamin K2 group, a vitamin D3 group, a vitamin K2 and D3 group, and a placebo group for two years found that the combination of vitamin D3 and K2 had the most benefits for supporting bone health among the groups.
We’ve selected the most bioavailable forms of vitamins D and K.
Numerous studies have shown that vitamin K2 as MK-7 is the more bioavailable form of the nutrient and more powerfully influences bone building than K1. The profoundly different degree of bioavailability between K1 and K2 is due to differences in structure: Only 10- 20% of vitamin K1 that is absorbed from food even reaches the circulation, while the long side-chain of vitamin K2 allows it to bind with fat particles in circulation and facilitate its arrival at soft tissue, bones and arteries. There are two forms of vitamin K2 commonly used in supplements: MK-4 and MK-7. The MK-7 form has been shown to have six times the activity of MK-4 in the blood. MK-7 has also been found to remain in the blood approximately nine times as long as the MK-4 (eight hours versus 72 hours), making it the optimal form of K2 for health.
Vitamin D3 with K2 is perfect for anyone who:
- Has suboptimal vitamin D levels
- Isn’t getting regular sun exposure
- Wants to support optimal immune, cardiovascular and bone health.
