Maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle can be a challenge at best. Going out to stay active, enjoying rare glimpses of winter sunshine, and getting your daily dose of vitamin D isn’t always possible when times are hectic. This is why supplements exist and we recommend vitamin d3 and k2.
Why it is important to take Vitamin D3 with Vitamin K2
Many people suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (or “the winter blues”), which can lead to low energy, a sense of gloom, and little motivation to eat healthy foods.
Doctors recommend taking a vitamin D supplement in the winter to boost vitamin D levels during the months when there is less sunlight. The best supplements are those based on Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2.
Better together: Vitamin D3 and K2 maximize the absorption of Vitamin D.
The combination of Vitamin D3 and K2 has recently gained scientific and public attention due to their excellent complementary effects.
Both vitamins are fat soluble and work together to metabolize calcium grade in the body by activating useful proteins. While Vitamin D3 improves calcium absorption, Vitamin K2 pinpoints where that calcium can be used. In fact, when you don’t get enough calcium from your diet, vitamin D helps create the calcium your bones need. Therefore, in order to prevent their weakening, vitamin K2 helps to promote calcification by regulating and reducing the damaging effect of the calcification itself and the hardening of the soft tissues.
