K2-D3 supplies a significant amount of biologically active vitamin K2 in the form of menaquinone-7 (MK-7) with Vitamin D-3 for cardiovascular and bone health.† The addition of Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, helps to further support healthy oxidative stress biomarkers to the vascular and systemic systems.† Douglas Labs’ Vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 is soy-free and derived from geraniol and farnesol. Geraniol is the primary part of rose oil, palmarosa oil, and citronella oil. Farnesol is present in many essential oils such as citronella, lemon grass, rose, and musk. This nature-identical form of menaquinone-7 has been extensively tested for molecular identity and bioequivalence when compared to menaquinone-7 from fermented soybeans (natto). It is the all-trans form, thus providing a pure, biologically active form.
K2-D3 is indicated for individuals desiring a high dose of vitamin K and vitamin D for blood vessel or bone health, with the added systemic health benefits of astaxanthin. Learn More
Studies indicate that most Americans are deficient in vitamin D3 and its natural partner vitamin K2. Both are key players to overall health and work in tandem. Vitamin D it’s technically not a vitamin but a potent neuroregulatory steroidal hormone that influences nearly 3,000 of your 25,000 genes. It literally turns genes on and off that can exacerbate or prevent many health states, including calcium deposition in bone, depression, back pain, cancer, insulin resistance, impaired immunity, and macular degeneration. And strong evidence demonstrates that vitamin K reduces cancer risk. Specifically, it’s vitamin K2 that directs calcium to your skeleton, while preventing it from being deposited in your organs, joint spaces, and arteries. In other words, without the help of vitamin K2, the calcium that your vitamin D so effectively lets in might be working against you, building up your coronary arteries rather than your bones. There is even evidence that the safety of vitamin D is dependent on vitamin K, and that vitamin D toxicity (although very rare with the D3 form) is actually caused by vitamin K2 deficiency.
