Vitamin D-3 and K-2 Overview
NOW Vitamin D-3 and K-2 may seem and sound like a strange combination of nutrients, but they're necessary for the proper utilization of calcium and therefore critical bone health factors. But because vitamin D and K are under-supplied by most multis, most calciums and even most bone formulas, there's a market for D3 and K-2 combinations to fill in these gaps. Many people already use vitamin D supplements, unaware that Vitamin K is just as important for bone health, and just as likely to be under-supplied by diet and supplements. Besides bone health, vitamin D and vitamin K play indispensable roles in heart, immune and metabolic health, too. NOW Foods gets the potencies just right by using 1000 IU of virtually nontoxic vitamin D along with a more conservative 45 mcg of healthy blood clotting factor vitamin K.
Vitamin D-3 and K-2 Description from Now
NOW combines two nutrients extensively researched for their contribution to the health of bones, teeth and the cardiovascular system. Vitamin D3 promotes Calcium transport and absorption. Recent studies indicate that Vitamin D3 may play a role in proper insulin action and glucose metabolism and has an important function within the immune system. Vitamin K is critical for the formation of a healthy, strong bone matrix. Vitamin K's role in arterial health revolves around its ability to support proper Calcium metabolism in vascular structures. Vitamin K2 is a readily active and biologically available form of Vitamin K.
