Vitamins K2 and D3 for Cardiovascular Health and Bone Health

Vitamins K2 and D3 for Cardiovascular Health and Bone Health

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of mortality and cerebrovascular disease (stroke) is the number four causes of mortality in the U.S. Meanwhile, osteoporosis affects 55% of Americans over 50. The good news is, a growing body of research is demonstrating that optimal Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3 levels can help support both cardiovascular and bone health.

One-way Vitamin K2 promotes cardiovascular health is by helping to keep calcium from accumulating in soft tissues where it doesn’t belong, thereby supporting vascular health. Similarly, it has been known for decades that Vitamin D3 regulates calcium and bone homeostasis. That’s why Vitamin D3 is needed to maintain strong bones and help promote bone health, especially in older persons. Recent investigations also indicate a range of other beneficial biological functions for Vitamin D3, including cardiovascular health. In particular, Vitamin D3 supports healthy blood pressure.

Combining Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3 helps protect blood vessels from calcification. These ingredients influence the elasticity of arterial vessel walls, help reduce excess serum calcium levels and support bone health.
