•Helps support bone health and musculoskeletal comfort
•Helps in restoration of vitamins depleted from dietary deficiency, limited sunlight exposure, and Vitamin D depleting drugs, including steroids, antacids, calcium-channel blockers, etc.
Vitamin K is a family of similarly structured molecules. There are three different vitamin K molecules. Vitamin K2 (menaquinones) is produced naturally by bacteria, unlike its more popular cousin, Vitamin K1, which is found in greater concentrations in green leafy vegetables.
Ergocalciferol (D2) and cholecalciferol (D3) are very similar biochemically; however, Vitamin D2 is one-third the potency and has shorter duration of action relative to Vitamin D3. The kidneys convert D3 into the hormone calcitriol, which affects bone, intestine, muscle, brain, skin and the immune system.
The combination of Vitamin K2 with Vitamin D3 has been suggested in recent studies to promote bone health. One of the most well known nutrients for bone health is calcium; however, research is finding that calcium alone may not be enough. Supplementing Vitamin D3 and K2 can help maintain bone strength and promote the normal process of bone building.
Dosage: Take 1 capsule daily or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Contraindications: Consult with your health care practitioner before beginning any Vitamin D therapy. Drug interaction is theoretically possible with drugs which are cleared via glucuronidation. Do not take K2 D3 if currently using anticoagulants.
