Vitamin D is most widely known as the sunshine vitamin because the body can make vitamin D when exposed to sunlight.
Vitamin D plays an important role in supporting bone health, maintaining cardiovascular function and immune function, and promoting an overall sense of well-being.
Vitamin D is available in two different forms, D2 and D3. Vitamin D3 is the preferable form as it has been found to maintain vitamin D levels in the body for a longer period when compared to vitamin D2.
Vitamin K has also been shown by a growing body of research to be a critical piece of the puzzle when it comes to bone health.
New research is focusing on the synergistic relationship between vitamin K (specifically, vitamin K2) and vitamin D3, in terms of bone strength 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.
Therefore, vitamin K and vitamin D not only share similar qualities, but they also act in synergy within the body.
The addition of MenaQ7® PRO to this formula is backed by research performed by Dr. Leon Schurgers, a world-renowned expert in vitamin K2 as MK-7 for cardiovascular and bone health. His team of research scientists have conducted over 15 clinical trials on MenaQ7® PRO through the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands.
Liquid Vitamin D3 with K2 includes:
- 10 mcg of MenaQ7® PRO, the most widely studied form of vitamin K2 as MK-7,
- 1,000 IU (25mcg) of vitamin D3 per serving.
1 or more drops per day (can be taken directly on the tongue or mixed with the beverage of your choice) or as recommended by your health care professional.
The tasteless liquid formula can easily be combined with any beverage.
