Vitamin D3 helps you absorb calcium, a key mineral required for the formation of strong bones. But did you know you also need vitamin K2 to help this calcium reach bones? In fact, K2 does more than this. It also removes calcium from your soft tissues, like your blood vessels. Excessive deposits of calcium in the arteries can contribute to atherosclerosis, which is the hardening and narrowing of arteries. Atherosclerosis increases your risk of angina, heart disease and stroke.
Together, vitamins D3 and K2 make sure the body can properly use calcium. This supports bone and heart health.
Vitamin D3: How it works?
Vitamin D3 is well-recognized for its role in regulating calcium levels and forming strong bones. Your body’s calcium supplements won’t work unless you it has sufficient vitamin D3 to absorb this calcium.
It is also known for many other health benefits. And the majority of these benefits are due to its ability to influence the expression of various genes. This is how it works:
- Almost every cell of your body has receptors for vitamin D. These receptors, called VDRs, are present in the cells of intestines, heart, breasts, lungs, hormone glands, thyroid glands, immune system and muscles.
- The active form of vitamin D binds to these receptors and activates various genes, responsible for making proteins and enzymes, which tell the body how to work.
Vitamin D3: Health benefits
- Helps in calcium absorption, needed for strong, healthy bones
- Prevents osteoporosis
- Regulates immunity
- Helps the body fight infections
- Reduces risk of autoimmune disorders
- Reduces risk of respiratory infections, asthma and allergies  
- Lowers the risk of heart disease
- Reduces inflammation
Your body can make enough vitamin D3 in the presence of sunlight. But both adults and children are increasingly spending less time outdoors. Increased use of sunscreen and the fear of developing skin cancer also limit sun exposure, resulting in widespread deficiency. Taking high quality liposomal vitamin D3 can help you maintain healthy levels.
But, taking vitamin D3 supplements may not be not enough if you are not combining it with vitamin K2.
Vitamin K2: How it works?
You may have heard of vitamin K and its role in proper clotting of blood. Did you know there are two types of vitamin K – K1 and K2? And that both have different functions? While both vitamins are needed for healthy blood clotting, it is vitamin K2 that plays a more important role in your bone and heart health. It is because vitamin K2 controls where calcium goes. This is how it works:
- Activates osteocalcin, a protein that binds calcium to the bones
- Activates Matrix Gla-protein (MGP), a protein that prevents calcium from being deposited in soft tissues, including the arteries
- Functions as an anti-oxidant
- Improves bone health
- Reduces the risk of osteoporosis and fractures  
- Reduces the risk of heart disease  
- Helps in healthy blood clotting
- Improves health in post-menopausal women
- Lowers inflammation
- Improves testosterone production, lowers estrogen levels
- Improves insulin sensitivity
