Vitamin D3 and K2 the Superhero Combination
Vitamin D facilitates calcium absorption from the GI tract into the bloodstream and thus plays an important role in maintaining bone density. Once Calcium is absorbed, Vitamin K helps transport calcium from the bloodstream into the bone. Together these two vitamins help maintain appropriate calcium skeletal distribution. Calcium is critical for optimal bone density as well as normal growth.
Vitamin K2’s role in supporting bone & cardiovascular health is crucial.
We all know that calcium is critical for our overall health, especially that of our bones. One important fact you may not be aware of though is that calcium needs support from Vitamin K2 to actually make its way from your bloodstream into your bone. This is extremely important as excess calcium in the bloodstream can disrupt kidney health, and actually, build up in soft tissue and arteries compromising cardiovascular health. Vitamin K2 helps maintain both cardiovascular AND bone health by ferrying excess calcium from the bloodstream into the bone where it is needed.
