Vitamin K2 with D3 by Ortho Molecular Supplementing vitamin D3 and K2 can help promote bone health and maintain health cardiometabolic function. Ortho Molecular Products is the exclusive provider of MenaQ7® PRO, the most widely studied form of vitamin K2 as MK-7.
New research is focusing on the synergistic relationship between vitamin K2 and vitamin D3, for bone and cardiovascular health. A group of naturally occurring and structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin K is essential for the proper utilization of calcium. Through its activation of the protein osteocalcin, vitamin K helps to bind newly absorbed calcium to the mineral matrix in bone. In addition, vitamin K has been found to help maintain bone mineral density by decreasing the activity of osteoclasts, a cell that breaks down the bone matrix. Vitamin K also provides critical cardiovascular protection by helping to activate matrix Gla protein (MGP), an inhibitor of circulatory calcification. Thus, vitamin K and vitamin D not only share similar qualities, but they also act synergistically within the body.
- Supports Healthy Blood Circulation
- Promotes Bone Health and Proper Calcium Storage
- Maintains Healthy Cardiometabolic Function and Supports Blood Sugar Balance Already Within Normal Levels
- Boosts Immune Function
Vitamin K Depletion - 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, approximately 70% of the western population is deficient in vitamin K2.
Bone Health - 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 - Vitamin K plays a key role in supporting the cardiovascular system as well as blood sugar balance already within normal levels.
Immune Modulation - New evidence also suggests vitamin K plays a central role in boosting immune function.
Triage Theory - The Triage Theory states that in the face of nutrient inadequacies, nature ensures short term survival of a cell is protected at the expense of long-term consequences.20,21Vitamin K is an excellent example of this theory. Hypothetically, a short term deficiency in vitamin K would lead to a reduction in blood clotting. This direct threat to survival does not happen, as the body uses its metabolic reserve of vitamin K to ensure immediate needs are met. If continued, this could begin to impact long-term reserves of vitamin K, reserves which are vital for the maintenance of proper bone strength and arterial elasticity. These issues are related to a loss of vitamin K-dependent proteins not required for short-term survival, nevertheless presenting long-term health challenges.
