Free Yourself from Vitamin D3 & K2 Deficiency for Better Health
Many vitamins play an important role in keeping your body in peak condition. Vitamins D3 and K2 work together to boost the wellness of your teeth, bones, heart, and circulatory system, but they’re often overlooked. NOW Foods Vitamin D3 & K2 Vegetarian Capsules help to correct this, providing 25 mcg of D3 as cholecalciferol and 45 mcg of K2. This provides a solid dose of high quality nutrients to help maintain both bone health and cardiovascular condition in adults. These vitamins are offered in a highly absorbable form so your body won’t have any trouble accessing them. Delivered in capsules, they break down easily in the stomach and will get into your metabolism fast, with little chance of just getting passed by your digestive system.
Your Bones with Thank You for a Strengthening Dose of K2
Vitamin K2 is the kind of vitamin K that your body can use most easily, and usually comes from specific fermented foods. NOW Foods D3 & K2 Vegetarian Capsules offer up this rare, health-boosting vitamin in a good dose to help support your bones. K2 ensures that calcium, magnesium, and other minerals bind correctly into the bones to strengthen them, rather than calcifying in soft tissues. Vitamin K2 is useful not only in stopping the progress of osteoporosis but also reversing it, helping to increase bone density to the point where fractures become far less likely.
Worried about Calcification? K2 Lets You Relax and Enjoy the Benefits
Other vital functions related to K2 involve the heart. When you take NOW Foods D3 & K2 Vegetarian Capsules, you’re no longer among the approximately 50% of American adults who have a vitamin K2 deficiency. K2 – along with magnesium and vitamin D3 – move calcium out of the veins or heart, where it can cause problems, and to the bones where it needs to crystallize and be deposited. This process aids greatly not just in reinforcing your bones, but in maintaining a clean bill of health when it comes to cardiovascular well-being.
Ensure Proper Calcium Transport with Plenty of Vitamin D3
The vitamin K2 in NOW Foods D3 & K2 Vegetarian Capsules is paired up with vitamin D3. This vitamin assists vitamin K2 in performing its health functions, including getting calcium to the bones where it’s needed rather than in areas of the body where it isn’t. Besides its positive effects on calcium transport, this vitamin may also provide a major boost to your immune system’s ability to defend your body against infectious germs. It’s an especially crucial supplement in the winter months when short days and frequent clouds mean people get even less of the “sunshine vitamin” than in summer.
Mental Clarity, Better Immunity, and Glucose Regulation
The dosage of D3 in NOW Foods D3 & K2 Vegetarian Capsules is 250% of DV, giving your body other possible boosts, too. Since it’s an immune system regulator, it may be able to help alleviate some autoimmune symptoms, according to certain studies. It also improves brain health and cognition, especially in elderly people, giving you an edge in staying alert and positive. It’s also thought to have beneficial effects on the modulation of insulin, while helping your body to process glucose properly rather than letting it build up in the blood.
