Here's news: a single powerful supplement can potentially impact your teeth, bones, brain, and cardiovascular health.
You might already be taking Vitamin D, but have you ever thought of taking Vitamin K? With Beeyoutiful's K2 with D3, you get both nutrients in one supplement.
Vitamin K doesn't only help your blood clot like your grandma was taught. The importance of Vitamin K for the whole body (especially in the K2 form) has become more well known over the past few years.
Dr. Weston A. Price did a tremendous amount of research during his career, trying in the 1930s and 1940s to find the key to both dental health and overall health. He isolated a nutrient that he called “Activator X,” which seemed to activate and enhance numerous other vitamins inside the body and allowed for increases in health and vibrancy.
Dr. Price was never aware that “Activator X” had already been identified. Research done decades prior in Russia was brought to English-speaking researchers and Vitamin K was identified in 1929 as this elusive nutrient. It's only been in the past two decades that the importance of dietary Vitamin K has become well known, and the more we learn, the more we realize this isn’t just a clotting vitamin!
Vitamin K2 coupled with Vitamin D3, the most bioavailable forms of both vitamins, work synergistically to allow the proteins within the vitamins to come to life in a more powerful way. There is also evidence that these two taken together help to buffer against possible overdose, especially when combined with Vitamin A.
Health Benefits of Vitamin K
Dental Health: Vitamin K is prevalent in saliva and the salivary glands. Studies have shown that those with saliva that was sufficient in Vitamin K also had very low incidents of dental caries (cavities).1
Bone Health: In several studies done outside the US, there have been reports that Vitamin K reduces the incidents of fractures in the elderly and helps to reverse bone loss. The US National Institute of Health indicates that research has shown that people who eat more vitamin K-rich foods have stronger bones and are less likely to break a hip than those who eat less of these foods.2 It is widely known that Vitamin D and A are useful in helping keep bones healthy. A protein called osteocalcin is only produced if both Vitamins A and D are present, and can only be activated in the presence of Vitamin K2. Osteocalcin is responsible for organizing the deposit of both calcium and phosphorus, both vital for healthy bones.
Cardiovascular Health: Even if the studies done on Vitamin K and heart disease are only partially true, the results would still be so staggering that no one would go without taking their daily Vitamin K! One study found that incidence of coronary heart disease was lessened by taking Vitamin K2.3 Of course we must keep in mind that correlation does not equal causation. Nevertheless, it is an interesting data point since moderate K2 supplementation is not considered dangerous.
Importance of Vitamin D3
Vitamin D does wonders in the body. Most know that it plays a key role in regulating calcium in the body, promoting absorption which helps bone mineralization to occur. Vitamin D doesn't stop there, however. When the body is getting enough D to go around, it is used liberally by many cells that are able to make calcitriol in combination with A and K2.
Adequate Calcium and Vitamin D intake throughout life, along with a healthy diet, are essential to reduce osteoporosis risk, but there are also other factors.
A huge list of chronic health conditions have been correlated with low Vitamin D levels, suggesting that this pro-hormone is a quiet, unsung worker of vast-reaching good in the body!
Last, but certainly not least, Vitamin D3 is just a great all around immune booster.
