New research is focusing on the synergistic relationship between vitamin D3 and vitamin K2, for bone and cardiovascular health. A group of naturally occurring and structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins, both Vitamin D and vitamin K are essential for the proper utilization of calcium.
Vitamins D and K Depletion
While it has long been assumed that the majority of the population acquires adequate levels of vitamin D through exposure to the sun, this is not necessarily true. In general, people are spending less time outside and the biosynthesis of the vitamin D is affected by aging, time of day, seasons, location, smog/pollution, clothing, and sunscreen.
Although most people consume adequate dietary vitamin K to maintain sufficient blood clotting, most do not consume enough to meet cardiovascular and bone health needs. In fact, research shows that approximately 70% of the western population is deficient in vitamin K2.
Bone Health and Musculoskeletal Comfort
Numerous studies have highlighted the importance of both vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 for maintaining healthy bone density. Building and maintaining healthy bones requires a number of key nutrients including vitamin K, for the proper binding of calcium to the bone matrix.
Cardiovascular Health and Blood Sugar Balance
In light of the role that vitamin D plays in a variety of tissues and body systems, it comes as no surprise that much research from recent years has underscored its contribution to cardio-metabolic wellness. Vitamin D has also been shown to support healthy blood sugar metabolism.
As well, Vitamin K plays a key role in supporting the cardiovascular system and keeping blood sugar balance within normal levels.
Immune Health and Modulation
One of the more profound functions of vitamin D is its ability to modulate immunity by boosting the immune response. Numerous studies also point to the key role of vitamin D in supporting musculoskeletal strength and comfort.
Recent evidence suggests vitamin K plays a central role in boosting immune function.
The addition of MenaQ7® PRO to this formula is backed by extensive research. Dr. Leon Schurgers, world-recognized expert in vitamin K2 as MK-7 research for cardiovascular and bone health, and his team of research scientists have conducted over 15 clinical trials on MenaQ7® PRO through the University of Maastricht.
