Why it is important to take Vitamin D with Vitamin K together?
With our hectic lifestyles maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle can be a challenge at the best of times.
If you feel like getting outside to stay active is a shore you are probably not getting your daily dose of vitamin D.
Symptoms you may have as a result of a deficiency are:
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (or ‘the winter blues’)
- Low energy
- Feeling down in the dumps
- Unmotivated to eat healthy foods
- Muscle Pain
- High blood pressure
In some countries it is recommended to take a vitamin D supplement in the wintertime to boost vitamin D levels during the months when there’s less sunlight.
But we actually recommend supplementing your diet with vitamin D3 and vitamin K2, a combination that offers a holistic boost to your everyday life and overall health and here is why!
Maximise Absorption Taking These Vitamins Together.
The combination of vitamin D3 and K2 has gained scientific and public attention recently due to their complementary effects with covid-19. There has been an increase in promising research on the synergistic effect of combining these two vitamins in everyday supplements.
Both vitamins are fat-soluble and work together to metabolise calcium in your body by activating helpful proteins. Whilst vitamin D3 improves calcium absorption, vitamin K2 allocates where that calcium can be used.
Why are they better together?
Well when you are not getting enough vitamin D may get the calcium it needs from your bones, in order to prevent the bones from weakening, vitamin K2 helps promote the calcification of your bones while regulating and reducing the damaging effect of the calcification and hardening of soft tissues (such as blood vessel walls or around the major organs).
As always we say try to get it from foods first but we know it is not always possible.
Vitamin D is found in:
- Fish Oil
- Fatty Fish
- Red Meat
- Egg Yolks
Vitamin K is found in:
- Animal Source Foods
- Some Fermented Foods
- Dark, Leafy-green Vegetables
If you’re a vegetarian, or if you eat meat and don’t include many vegetables in your diet, you might want to consider taking a vitamin D3 & K2 supplement and or a Greens Drink daily, to support a healthy vascular system and bones.
