Why should I take Vitamin K2 with Vitamin D3?
Vitamin D3 ensures that calcium is absorbed easily and K2 (K2VITAL®) activates the protein osteocalcin, which integrates calcium into bone. Without D3 and K2, calcium cannot do its job effectively. Together, this combined formula helps to keep your heart and bones healthy. Taking too much vitamin D3 without getting the right amount of vitamin K2 can lead to problems with excess calcium, which can cause buildup in arteries and muscles.
What is the difference between regular Vitamin D and Vitamin D3?
Vitamin D is less expensive to produce and therefore is the form most commonly found in fortified food products. Vitamin D3 mainly comes from animal sources such as fish oil, fatty fish, liver, and egg yolks. Amandean’s Vitamin D3 (VegD3®) (as Cholecalciferol) is selectively-sourced from algal oil and is 100% vegan. When your skin is exposed to sunlight, it produces vitamin D3. For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as the sunshine vitamin. Its strength is also measured in international units (IU).
What is Vitamin K2?
Most people have never heard of vitamin K2. This vitamin is rare in the Western diet and hasn’t received as much attention as Vit E, C, or D. Vitamin K was discovered in 1929 as an essential nutrient for blood coagulation (blood clotting). There are two main forms of vitamin K: Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) and Vitamin K2 (menaquinone). Amandean’s selectively-sourced Vitamin K2 (K2VITAL®) contains 99.7% all-trans MK-7, known as the purest bioactive form available. It is produced by organic synthesis and it is fat-soluble.
