-Emulsified for increased absorption and bioavailability.
-Vitamin K2 helps to keep calcium out of the arteries and in the bones where it belongs.
-Supplies 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 every 5 drops.
PROVIDES LIQUID VITAMIN D3 AND VITAMIN K2 IN A WELL-ABSORBED, BERRY FLAVORED EMULSION
- Supports bone health and proper calcium metabolism
- Provides immune and anti-inflammatory support
- Provides cardiovascular support
- Emulsified for increased absorption and bioavailability
VITAMIN D3-K2 EMULSION is designed to support individuals whose diets and lifestyles may not provide adequate amounts of vitamins D3 and K2. Cholecalciferol, also known as vitamin D3, is produced when the skin is exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D is essential for bone health, anti-inflammatory support, cardiovascular health, and immune system support. Vitamin K2 further supports bone health due to its role in proper calcium metabolism Unfortunately, many individuals produce insufficient vitamin D due to limited sun exposure and liberal use of sun protective factors (SPF) in sun screen lotions. Patients facing severe vitamin D deficiency may be disheartened by the need to take multiple capsules in order to reestablish optimum vitamin D status. Vitamin D3-K2 Emulsion provides healthy doses of vitamins D3 and K2 in a tasty, emulsified liquid that is both convenient and well-absorbed.
EMULSIFICATION is the process of dispersing one liquid in a second immiscible liquid, such as oil in water. Emulsification of dietary fat is a naturally occurring process in the intestinal tract as part of the digestion and absorption process. Vitamin D and K are both fat-soluble vitamins, and therefore are best absorbed when consumed with a fat source to facilitate their emulsification and uptake.
VITAMIN D (CHOLECALCIFEROL), according to various studies, has been linked to joint disorders and decreased bone density when serum levels are low. In addition, risk for disorder progression increases substantially with both low vitamin D intake and decreased serum levels. Studies also reveal that vitamin D provides immune and anti-inflammatory support. One researcher described vitamin D as a flexible bidirectional immunomodulator. The cytokines interleukin 1 (IL-1) and interleukin 2 (IL-2) appear favorably regulated under the influence of vitamin D. Also, epidemiological data indicates that a low vitamin D status is associated with vascular disorders. Clinical studies have demonstrated an inverse relationship between circulating vitamin D levels and plasma rennin activity. It should also be noted that vitamin D has been shown to inhibit lipid peroxidation.
VITAMIN K2 (MENAQUINONE-7) supports bone health with its essential role in modulation of aberrant calcium metabolism. A major role of Vitamin D is to support calcium absorption and utilization. However, if serum calcium becomes too elevated, abnormal deposition of calcium in arteries and heart valves may result. Arterial calcification is a major risk factor for both cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. Vitamin K2 has a unique role as a dependent cofactor for carboxylation of the human matrix GLA protein (MGP), which is a major inhibitor of arterial calcification. Vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 has been shown effective for maintaining calcium balance by helping to keep calcium in the bones and out of the vascular media. Among Japanese populations with high dietary intakes of vitamin K2, reduced incidences of bone fractures and bone density issues have been observed. It is important to note that clinical benefits on bone density and arterial health were seen in the presence of vitamin K2 in the menaquinone-7 form and were not observed to be significant with other forms of vitamin K2 or with K1.
