Bio D/K Plus combines a unique high-potency blend of vitamin D and two forms of vitamin K2 (MK-4 & MK-7) in an oil-emulsified blend for enhanced absorption. Bio D/K Plus provides the ideal blend of vitamin D and vitamin K2 to support bone, immune, and vascular health through the activation of vitamin K dependent proteins.*
Vitamin D and vitamin K (as vitamin K2) are fat-soluble vitamins identified for their central roles in calcium homeostasis and utilization. As the most abundant mineral in the body calcium is required for several essential physiological processes, in addition to its role as a structural component of bone matrix and teeth. While the relationship of vitamin D to calcium availability and bone health is well-established, more recent research has identified critical interactions involving vitamin K2 with vitamin D and calcium.
The relationship involving vitamin D, vitamin K2, and calcium is such that vitamin D serves to increase the absorption of dietary calcium, whereas vitamin K2 facilitates the healthy distribution of calcium throughout the body. Elevated vitamin D levels are beneficial and serve to improve bone mineral density from increased calcium availability. However, higher calcium levels can also increase the risk of calcium deposits in non-skeletal tissues. For its role, vitamin K2 performs the essential function of activating specific proteins that direct and bind calcium to bones while inhibiting calcium deposits in the arteries and other soft tissues.*
