-Article written by Ethan Wood, CPT & Registered Nutritionist
What is Vitamin D3?
It helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus which are important for building and maintaining strong bones 1.
Vitamin D3 also plays a role in supporting immune function by activating key peptides in the immune system that help defend against environmental threats 2.
Some natural sources of Vitamin D3 include fish, beef liver, eggs, cheese, and fortified milk and cereal 31.
What is Vitamin K2?
Vitamin K2 is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that plays a role in supporting calcium metabolism and heart health 4.
Specifically, Vitamin K2 regulates the body’s calcium supply by directing calcium into the bones and away from blood vessels and kidneys 5.
Some natural sources of Vitamin K2 include fermented foods like natto (a Japanese dish made from fermented soybeans), cheese, egg yolks, butter, chicken liver, and ground beef 6.
Why Are These Vitamins Paired Together?
Vitamins D3 and K2 have been paired together in our formula because they both regulate calcium metabolism and have been shown to work in synergy 7.
Vitamin D3 helps your body absorb calcium while Vitamin K2 directs calcium into the bones and away from blood vessels and kidneys 89.
Together, these vitamins help promote calcification of the bones while simultaneously reducing calcium build-up in blood vessels 7.
What Benefits Can I Expect?
Vitamin D3, Vitamin K2, and Calcium are all important nutrients that play a role in maintaining good health10.
Vitamin D3 helps your body absorb calcium and supports healthy bones, muscles, and teeth 11. It also promotes healthy energy levels and insulin levels 12.
Vitamin K2 directs calcium into the bones and away from blood vessels and kidneys 1013.
Calcium is essential for strong bones and a healthy heart and circulatory system 1312.
BioPerine is an extract of black pepper that has been shown to enhance nutrient absorption 14.
Together, these nutrients can help support immune system function, promote heart health, artery health, normal blood pressure, joint comfort, cognitive function, and more 12.
Are There Any Side Effects?Vitamin D3, Vitamin K2, Calcium, and BioPerine are generally safe when taken as directed 15.
However, some minor adverse side effects can occur when you begin taking this product. Side effects include flatulence, abdominal pain, and swelling of the belly 16. Nausea, vomiting and severe abdominal pain are also considered rare side effects of this supplement 16.
It’s important to note that vitamin D3 should be taken with vitamin K2 to maintain calcium balance. When vitamin D3 is taken without vitamin K2 it exacerbates the deposition of calcium in blood vessels and other soft tissues, including the lungs. This can cause acute lung damage and respiratory distress 17.
If you experience any adverse side effects while taking these supplements, stop taking them immediately and consult your doctor 1819.
