Tropical vacations are something we might manage once a year, but what about the other 50 weeks? Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), is known as the “sunshine vitamin” because it is easily synthesized by the body when the sun’s UVB rays strike the skin. Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium and phosphorus to keep bones and teeth strong and protect against disease.
Vitamin K2 is a fat soluble vitamin essential for normal blood clotting and bone metabolism. There are three different forms of vitamin K: K1 (phytoquinone), K2 (menaquinone), which can be made by natural bacteria in the intestines, and K3 (menadione), a synthetic version of vitamin K. Clinical research has demonstrated significant protection of bone strength with the K2 form of vitamin K.
Menaquinone-7 (MK-7) is an effective activator of osteocalcin, the protein essential for calcium deposition in bone. It works synergistically with vitamin D3 to help influence mineral strength in bones and teeth.
