Vitamins D and K are fat-soluble nutrients that play an essential role in your body’s calcium metabolism.

Benefits of Vitamin D3 and K2

Vitamin K regulates calcium in your body in at least two ways.

  • Promotes calcification of bone: Vitamin K activates osteocalcin, a protein that promotes the accumulation of calcium in your bones and teeth (4).
  • Reduces calcification of soft tissues: Vitamin K activates matrix GLA protein, which prevents calcium from accumulating in soft tissues, such as the kidneys and blood vessels.

One of the main functions of vitamin D is to maintain adequate calcium levels in the blood. There are two ways in which vitamin D can achieve this:

  • Improving calcium absorption: Vitamin D enhances the absorption of calcium from the food you eat
  • Taking calcium from bone: When you don’t consume enough calcium, vitamin D maintains its blood levels by drawing on the body’s main calcium supply — your bones

Thus it is very important to maintain your D3 levels for good bone health
