Vitamin D3 with Vitamin K2
This liquid combination of D3/K2 is tasteless and therefore effortless to take. It’s critical for vitamins D3 and K2 to be taken together, making this supplement is one of our favorites.
About 80% of the U.S. is deficient in vitamins D and K. Vitamin D supports bone health, heart and immune function, protecting against cancer. Vitamin D3 ensures absorption of calcium while vitamin K2 directs calcium to the proper location in the body, preventing it from depositing where it shouldn’t, such as in the arteries, organs and joints.
Vitamin D, a vitamin, a hormone, and much more
Vitamin D is not just a vitamin, but it’s also converted to a steroid hormone. Vitamin D also regulated 5% of our genes, an often under-appreciated fact.
We often think of D in terms of bone strength. It plays an important role in regulating your body’s levels of calcium and phosphorus, and in the mineralization of your bone.
Vitamin D is also considered “anti-cancer”, meaning it goes way beyond mineral and bone health, in fact impacting the strength of your immune system.
It is that area I wish to focus upon in this blog.
Vitamin D3 is protective against respiratory infections
This isn’t new news. There are over 25 studies, citing vitamin D’s beneficial effects on lung tissue.
