How do ingredients work?
Vitamin D is a unique adaptive immune response modifier. It enhances congenital immunity, activates antimicrobial peptides that eliminate pathogenic organisms such as microbes, bacteria and viruses3. Vitamin D strengthens cellular immune defenses, reduces cytokine storm severity4, and supports lung function by reducing the inflammatory response caused by viruses5. In addition, it also stimulates the production of antimicrobial proteins in the mucous membranes of upper airways5.
Lately, so many people suffer from vitamin D3 deficiency that many experts recommend increasing the daily dosage in accordance with individual needs. Based on clinical guidelines of the Russian Association of Endocrinologists, an adult needs 2,000 IU or more vitamin D3 daily to maintain its optimum level6.
Vitamin K2 is a key component in the regulation of metabolic processes and calcium distribution in the body. It strengthens bone tissue by activating the production of the protein osteocalcin that increases bone density, prevents osteoporosis and reduces the risk of fractures. It has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system, prevents the deposition of calcium crystals on the walls of blood vessels, thereby reducing the risk of calcification. Vitamin K2 improves the absorption of calcium and vitamin D3, thus preventing calcium accumulation in the kidneys and joints. It prevents early aging, improves skin structure, and reduces premature wrinkling.
This vitamin has several forms, but MK-7 (menaquinone-7) has the highest level of bioavailability. When you take a package of vitamin K2 from the pharmacy shelf, make sure that it is marked MK-7. If the manufacturer does not specify the form of K2, the supplement is likely to contain MK-4. What's the difference? MK-7 remains active longer, unlike MK-4, which loses its properties faster and is less efficient. MK-7 circulates in the blood for about 72 hours, which gives it enough time to reach all the organs in the body, including bone tissue.
It is this bioavailable form of vitamin K2 that is included in the product Vitamin D3 2000 IU + K2.
