A growing body of research shows that when it comes to bone health,
ensuring optimal intake of vitamin K is a critical piece of the puzzle.
New research is focusing on the synergistic relationship between vitamin
K (specifically, vitamin K2) and vitamin D3, especially in terms of
bone strength 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. Therefore, vitamin
K and vitamin D not only share similar qualities, but they also act in
synergy within the body.
The addition of MenaQ7® PRO to this formula is backed
by extensive research. Dr. Leon Schurgers, world-renowned expert in
vitamin K2 as MK-7 research for cardiovascular and bone health, and his
team of research scientists have conducted over 15 clinical trials on
MenaQ7® PRO through the University of Maastricht.
Liquid Vitamin D3 with K2 includes 10 mcg of MenaQ7® PRO,
the most widely studied form of vitamin K2 as MK-7, and 1,000 IU of
vitamin D3 per serving. The tasteless liquid formula can easily be
combined with any beverage.
1 or more drops per day (can be taken directly on the tongue or mixed
with the beverage of your choice) or as recommended by your health care
Vitamin D is most widely known as the sunshine vitamin because the body
can make vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D plays an
important role in supporting bone health, maintaining cardiovascular
function and immune function, and promoting an overall sense of
Vitamin D is available in two different forms, D2 and D3. Vitamin D3 is
the preferable form as it has been found to maintain vitamin D levels
in the body for a longer period when compared to vitamin D2.
Vitamin K occurs in two main forms: K1 (phylloquinone), derived from
foods such as green leafy vegetables and K2 (menaquinone), which is a
group of related compounds differentiated by their side-chains. Numerous
studies have shown that vitamin K2 as MK-7 is the more bioavailable
form of the nutrient 7 and more powerfully influences bone building than
K1. The combination of vitamin K2 with vitamin D3 has been suggested in
recent studies to promote bone health.
