Vitamin D/K2 Liquid 1 oz
Vitamin K2 exerts a more powerful influence on bone than does vitamin K1. Vitamin K2 is a series of molecules known as menaquinones. The most common and well-studied of the menaquinones is MK-4. Thorne Research's vitamin K2 is MK-4. Vitamin K is essential for normal cell formation and to help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. It is essential to maintain an optimal level of vitamin D through all stages of life, from fetal development to old age. Vitamin D helps support a number of important systems in the body, including muscle and bone health, as well as cardiovascular and immune function. Combining vitamins D and K might provide synergistic protection of these systems. One study in postmenopausal women found a combination of minerals along with vitamins D and K maintained healthy artery elasticity, compared to two other groups of women who received either minerals with vitamin D but not vitamin K, or placebo.

Vitamin D3 With K2 Liquid
A growing body of research shows that when it comes to bone health, ensuring optimal intake of vitamin K is a critical piece of the puzzle. New research is focusing on the synergistic relationship between vitamin K (specifically, vitamin K2) and vitamin D3, especially in terms of bone strength and cardiovascular health. A group of naturally occurring and structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin K is essential for the proper utilization of calcium. Through its activation of the protein osteocalcin, vitamin K helps to bind newly absorbed calcium to the mineral matrix in bone. In addition, vitamin K has been found to help maintain bone mineral density by decreasing the activity of osteoclasts, a cell that breaks down the bone matrix. Therefore, vitamin K and vitamin D not only share similar qualities but they also act in synergy within the body.
