Emerging research highlights the importance of optimal intake of vitamin K as a critical aspect of maintaining bone and cardiovascular health.
A group of naturally occurring and structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin K is required for the proper utilization of calcium, helping to bind newly absorbed calcium to the bone matrix. Vitamin K helps maintain bone mineral density by decreasing the activity of osteoclasts, cells which break down bone and also provides critical cardiovascular protection by activating Matrix GLA Protein (MGP), an potent inhibitor of circulatory calcification. Together with vitamin D, another key nutrient required for overall wellness, these two nutrients act in synergy to support and maintain bone, cardiovascular, and immune health.Recent research has found high concentration therapy, at 180 mcg/day, results in improved clinical results compared to low dose supplementation.
Ortho Molecular‚Äôs Vitamin K2 with D3 provides 180 mcg of vitamin K2 delivered in the preferred MK-7 form along with 5000 IU of vitamin D3 per capsule, for optimal support of cardiovascular and bone health.
