A Natural Vitamin K2 with Vitamin D3 Supplement that Provides Support for Both Bone Health and Cardiovascular Health.
•Vitamin K2 with Vitamin D3 for Bone Health
Vitamin K is a family of similarly structured molecules. There are a total of 3 different vitamin K molecules. Vitamin K2, menaquinones, are produced naturally by bacteria unlike its more popular cousin vitamin K1 which is found in greater concentrations in green leafy vegetables. The combination of vitamin K2 with vitamin D3 has been used in recent studies to promote bone health.
Bone health is an important aspect of overall health often overlooked by many people. One of the most well known nutrients for bone health is calcium; however, research is finding that calcium alone may not be enough.
Vitamin K, the Coagulation Vitamin.
Vitamin K has historically been known as the coagulation vitamin, more recent studies have shown that vitamin K plays more than just a role in coagulation and is essential in bone health as well. There are three different forms of vitamin K which include vitamin K1, vitamin K2 and vitamin K3. Vitamin K1 is found in leafy green vegetables while vitamin K2 is produced by bacteria. Vitamin K3 is a synthetic product and is typically not found in dietary supplements.
Vitamin K2 for Bone Health and Gamma-Carboxylation.
Osteocalcin is an important bone building protein. In order for osteocalcin to be utilized by bones it must first undergo a process called gamma-carboxylation. Vitamin K is needed for osteocalcin to undergo this process which allows the osteocalcin to bind with calcium and be utilized by bones. Osteocalcin requires higher amounts of vitamin K for the total gamma-carboxylation of the protein. Vitamin K2 as MK7 has been found to stay in the body longer than vitamin K1. This provides the body with supplies of vitamin K for longer amounts of time. Our natural Vitamin K2 with Vitamin D3 Supplement contains Vitamin K2 as MK7.
The Combination of Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3 in a Single Supplement.
Vitamin D is also an important bone nutrient and is believed to play a role in achieving gamma-carboxylation of osteocalcin as well. Together vitamin K2 and vitamin D3 make a truly efficacious and comprehensive bone supporting supplement.
