Vitamin K was included in this formulation because it is needed to work in synergy with vitamin D, as both vitamins D and K are essential for optimal bone and arterial health and for maintaining proper immune function. Vitamin K helps keep the important bone protein, osteocalcin, carboxylated. Undercarboxylated osteocalcin cannot regulate calcium, causing it to freely circulate in the bloodstream, and potentially be deposited in the soft tissues (calcification) such as arterial walls or kidneys.
COMBINING VITAMINS K1 AND K2
Although they originate from different sources, both vitamin K1 and K2 are important to our health. Vitamin K1 is the naturally occurring form of vitamin K in vegetables while vitamin K2 as MK-7 is a product of fermentation. Even though vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin, the plasma half-life of K1 is relatively short (around 2-8 hours), and its effects on activating important proteins in the body may only be maximal for about 8-12 hours after supplementation.7 However, vitamin K2 (MK-7) has a very long plasma half-life which gives it the special property of metabolizing slowly throughout the day, allowing the body the maximum time to reap its benefits. Thus, the inclusion of K1 along with the highly bioavailable K2 (MK-7) provides a comprehensive scope of vitamin K to complement the vitamin D in this product.
