A growing body of clinical evidence is showing that Vitamin K2 is as important as Vitamin D3 for the body to process calcium properly.
Without adequate levels of Vitamin K2, the bones cannot fully utilize the available calcium, resulting in osteoporosis. The unused calcium builds up in the arteries, creating cardiovascular disease. It’s a double whammy.
Vitamin K2 was discovered fairly recently, so nutritional scientists are still mapping its role. It appears to work as an activator for Vitamins D and A as well at least 17 different proteins. Preliminary research suggests potential benefits of Vitamin K2 for:
- Skin health
- Conditions of the central nervous system8
- Antitumor activities6
- Mental acuity and brain health7
Nested Naturals Vitamin K2 is allergen friendly because it is made from chickpeas rather than soy. Our obsession with quality and purity led us to a premium source in Poland. We use the most bioavailable form of Vitamin K2, because if your body can’t absorb the nutrients, what’s the point?
Vitamin K2 works synergistically with Vitamin D3. Taken together they can amplify the positive effects of bone health 9 and cardiovascular function. For maximum benefit, pair Vitamin K2 with Nested Naturals Vitamin D3.
Vitamin K2 may counteract the effects of anticoagulation therapy, and therefore is not recommended for patients on blood thinning medications.
