Vitamin D is perhaps the most important vitamin the body needs. It acts like a hormone and is involved in many metabolic processes throughout the body. In a perfect world, you can get enough vitamin D from sunlight. Unfortunately in the west, many people are deficient in vitamin D due to prolonged periods of cold weather. Even during the summer months, many people do not get enough vitamin D due to spending to much time indoors.
It’s important to take the correct vitamin D supplement. D3 is 35% more effective than D2 supplements.
Vitamin D3 comes from sunlight. Unlike many synthetic supplements, we harness the power of nature, using D3 from lichen, a slow growing moss that uses photosynthesis to convert the sunlight into a natural source of vitamin D3. Vitamin K2 complements Vitamin D3 Perfectly. We use MK-7 menaquinone K2 that is superior to MK-4 K2.
One of the major roles of vitamin D is the balance and regulation of calcium. If you are taking vitamin D you will have an increased demand for vitamin K2. Uptake of calcium is increased from vitamin D intake. The body produces transport proteins called GLA proteins that moves calcium to where it is needed within the body. Vitamin K2 activates the GLA proteins to enable calcium to be delivered to bones and teeth. If taking vitamin D without K2, calcium can be deposited into the arteries and soft tissues of the body and negatively impact health.
All vitamin D supplements should be partnered with vitamin K2. K2 as MK7 activates all vitamin K2 dependant GLA proteins in order to maintain optimal health.
