Vitamin D is a steroid vitamin, a group of fat-soluble pro-hormones that are best known for the role they play in supporting bone health and aiding in the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the gastrointestinal tract. Through its ability to target over 200 different genes throughout the body, it also serves an important role in supporting other body systems including: 

  • Cardiovascular and blood sugar balance,
  • Increasing musculoskeletal strength,
  • Neurological function, and
  • Immune function 

Vitamin D Deficiency has reached epidemic proportions around the world, so supplementing with Vitamin D is critically important. Studies have found vitamin D3 is the preferable form over vitamin D2, as it has been found to maintain active vitamin D levels for a longer period of time.

While vitamin D plays an important role for calcium absorption, it is Vitamin K, through its carboxylation of osteocalcin, which guides calcium into the bones and prevents their absorption into organs, joint spaces and arteries. Numerous studies have shown that vitamin K2 is the more bioavailable than other forms of Vitamin K, and more powerfully influences bone building. There are two forms of vitamin K2 commonly used in supplements: MK-4 and MK-7. The MK-7 form has been shown to have six times the activity of MK-4 in the blood. MK-7 has also been found to remain in the blood approximately nine times as long as the MK-4 (8 hours versus 72 hours), making it the optimal form of K2 for health.

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. 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.
