Have you ever instantly connected with someone you just met? That’s what it’s like when vitamin D and K2 work together within our bodies. Keep reading to learn about the processes that these two vitamins are involved and the benefits they offer for our health.
Getting familiar with vitamins D and K2
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin known for helping us absorb and process calcium and phosphorus, which are needed to support our bones and teeth. Vitamin D is also known as the sunshine vitamin because it’s synthesized by the body when the sun’s UVB rays strike our skin.
Vitamin K2 is another fat-soluble vitamin that’s essential for proper blood coagulation or blood clotting. It also plays a vital role in calcium metabolism to help support our bones and teeth.
What are the benefits of taking them together?
Pairing vitamin D and K2 has been shown to improve bone health and support cardiovascular health. Because of how well they work together, studies show that vitamin K can effectively prevent osteoporosis, but only when taken with vitamin D. Additionally, research has shown that taking these two vitamins together can help to reduce inflammation and soften arteries in the heart by preventing buildup of calcium within them. This in turn reduces the risk of developing heart disease.
