OVERVIEW

New research is focusing on the synergistic relationship between vitamin K2 and vitamin D3, for bone and cardiovascular health. A group of naturally occurring and structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin K is essential for the proper utilization of calcium. Through its activation of the protein osteocalcin, vitamin K helps to bind newly absorbed calcium to the mineral matrix in bone. In addition, vitamin K has been found to help maintain bone mineral density by decreasing the activity of osteoclasts, a cell that breaks down the bone matrix. Vitamin K also provides critical cardiovascular protection by helping to activate matrix Gla protein (MGP), an inhibitor of circulatory calcification. Thus, vitamin K and vitamin D not only share similar qualities, but they also act synergistically within the body.

Vitamin K2 with D3 includes 45 mcg of the most widely studied form of vitamin K2 as MK-7 and 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 per capsule for optimal absorption and use by the body.

Suggested Use:

1 or more capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional

INGREDIENT BENEFITS

Vitamin K2/D3

Vitamin K occurs in two main forms: K1 (phylloquinone), derived from foods such as green leafy vegetables and K2 (menaquinone), which is a group of related compounds differentiated by their side chains. Numerous studies have shown that vitamin K2 as MK-7 is the more bioavailable form of the nutrient 7 and more powerfully influences bone building than K1. The combination of vitamin K2 with vitamin D3 has been suggested in recent studies to promote bone health.
