Vitamin D3 with K2 spray
This Super Health spray is a highly efficient way to keep your vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 at the optimum level around the year that supports proper calcium absorption in order to deposit in bones and guard against calcium build up in coronary arteries by stimulation specific proteins (MGP) production in the body.Vitamins D3 and K2 work together in the body: Vitamin D3 helps calcium absorption while vitamin K plugs it in bones.
Benefit of Vitamin D3 with K2 spray:
improve bone density;
lower a risk of diabetes;
D3 regulates T cells and acts as an immune system modulator in the body;
K2 helps reduce coronary calcification.
What is Vitamin D3?
Vitamin D3 is not technically a vitamin. It is a fat-soluble pro-hormone which is vital because it influences your entire body. In particular, vitamin D3 plays a critical role in the body’s absorption of calcium and phosphorous, modulation of cell growth, reduction of inflammation, neuromuscular and immune functions. Research revealed that it helps prevent different types of cancers; reduces a risk of diabetes, hypertension and heart diseases. Vitamin D3 deficiency has been also connected to psychiatric and neurological disorders.
Vitamin D3 (or Cholecalciferol) is one of two forms of Vitamin D. Another form is Vitamin D2 (or Ergocalciferol). It is important to stress that 90% of all Vitamin D circulating in our body is Vitamin D3 because it is made by the skin after exposure to sunlight. It is commonly obtained either from the skin when it is exposed to ultraviolet radiation.
Why is Vitamin K2 Beneficial for Your Heart?
The presence of atherosclerotic plaques in arterial walls is one of the common conditions associated with cardiovascular diseases. Plaque rupture can cause blood clot formation (thrombogenesis) that appears to be the usual cause of a myocardial infarction (heart attack) or stroke. A study, published in medical journal on Atherosclerosis, found that high dietary intake of vitamin K2 can reduce coronary calcification (hardening of the arteries) that further lowers your risk of heart disease. Another research (Rotterdam Study) also demonstrated the beneficial effect of vitamin K2 on increasing lifespan. It showed that, if people had consumed 45 mcg of K2 daily, they tended to live seven years longer than those who were getting 12 mcg per day. At the same time, as one of leading researchers in the field of vitamin K – Dr. Cees Vermeer notes, deficiency in vitamin K in people as common as deficiency in vitamin D.
Vitamin K2 and vitamin D3 work together to activates specific protein hormones (MGP) which bind calcium into your bone with help of vitamin D that prevent calcium from depositing into your arteries. Nearly 100 percent of people do not get adequate amounts of vitamin K2 from their diet. As Professor Cees Vermeer notes, “non-supplemented healthy adults are insufficient in vitamin K to a level that 30 percent of their MGP is synthesized in an inactive form. So, protection against cardiovascular calcification is only 70 percent in the young, healthy population, and this figure decreases at increasing age.”
As it was also demonstrated by recent studies linking calcium supplements to heart attacks, if you take calcium and vitamin D but are deficient in vitamin K2, you could be worse off than if you were not taking those supplements at all.
Other Reasons to Take Vitamin K2 Daily
Vitamin K is an extremely important vitamin to have in your diet; it may very well be the next vitamin D in terms of the numerous health benefits it may provide.
Improve Bone Density
Vitamin K serves as the biological “glue” that helps plug the calcium into your bone matrix therefore is one of the most important nutritional interventions for improving bone density.Studies have shown a daily intake vitamin K can be as effective as osteoporosis drugs, but with no side effects.
Stave off Varicose Veins
Inadequate levels of vitamin K may reduce the activity of the matrix GLA protein (MGP), which in turn has been identified as a key player in the development of varicosis, or varicose veins.
Lower Your Risk of Diabetes
According to the latest research from University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands, people with the highest intakes of vitamin K from their diet had a 20 percent lower risk of diabetes compared with those with the lowest intakes,. Later studies have also shown vitamin K can reduce the progression of insulin resistance.
Vitamin K has been found beneficial in the fight against non-Hodgkin lymphoma, liver, colon, stomach, prostate, nasopharynx, and oral cancers, and some studies have even suggested vitamin K may be used therapeutically in the treatment of patients with lung cancer, liver cancer, and leukemia.
