Carlson Labs - Vitamin D3 + K2 - 120 Capsules
Synergistic ActivityMost people know how important Vitamin D3 is to their health, but are you aware that Vitamin K2 can be just as important? Vitamin D3 is most well-known for its role in regulating calcium levels in your body, and Vitamin K2 is recognized for healthy blood clotting. But when combined at optimal levels, as in this Carlson Labs formula, these vitamins are capable of much more than their basic functions. Vitamin D3 and K2 work synergistically to support cardiovascular and bone health: Vitamin D helps regulate calcium absorption, and Vitamin K helps direct that calcium to your bones. Each 1-capsule dose of Carlson Labs Vitamin D3+K2 provides you with 50 mcg of Vitamin D3 and 90 mcg of Vitamin K2 as MK-7 to help you maintain cardiovascular health and promote optimal calcium absorption to protect the health of your bones and teeth.
Bone-Building DuoVitamin D3 helps your body absorb calcium properly, and Vitamin K2 ensures that the calcium you absorb is put to proper use. Vitamin K2 accomplishes this by activating osteocalcin, an important protein secreted by your osteoblasts, or bone-building cells. Osteocalcin then routes calcium into your bones, and osteoblasts bind that calcium to your bones, helping you form a strong bone matrix.
Cardiovascular DuoOsteocalcin also activates another protein, called matrix GLA protein (MGP), which is considered one of the most important factors for helping you maintain a well-functioning vascular system. Vitamin D is needed to make osteocalcin and MGP, but Vitamin K2 is necessary to activate these proteins, so they can do their jobs.
The Power of D3Vitamin D3 has far-reaching and significant impacts on numerous functions in your body, so if you want to live a healthy lifestyle, you need to be certain to get enough of this essential vitamin. The list of Vitamin D3 benefits is long, including its important roles in heart health, cell formation and longevity, pancreatic health, healthy aging, sleep patterns, reproductive health, athletic performance, respiratory health, immune health, positive-mood support, healthy bones, eyes, skin, hair, and metabolism, normal digestion, and food absorption.
The Power of MK-7Several research studies have shown the need for good levels of Vitamin K2 as MK-7 in supporting your cardiovascular health and in preventing development of cardiovascular disease. The Rotterdam Study, completed in 2004, evaluated the relationship between dietary intake of Vitamin K2 as MK-7 and aortic calcification, heart disease, and mortality. This 10-year study of 4,807 men and women aged 55 and older showed that subjects taking Vitamin K2 throughout the study experienced a 50% reduction in risk of arterial calcification, a 50% reduction in risk of cardiovascular death, and a 25% reduction in the risk of death from any cause! Separately and, even more so, together, Vitamins K2 and D3 cover a wealth of bases essential to your overall health.
