Vitamin K2 & D3 - Information

Vitamin K – The Nobel Prize Discovery

Vitamin K is actually the result of Nobel Prize-winning research carried out in 1929. A vitamin was then discovered that was essential for blood coagulation, i.e. the blood's ability to solidify. Because the vitamin was linked to coagulation, it was named vitamin "K" as in "Coagulation."

Many research areas

Over the years, however, it has been possible to see that vitamin K has more meanings. Among other things, the strength of the bone structure and skeleton is affected. Its influence on cardiovascular diseases has also been studied. Furthermore, they have opened up research into vitamin K's impact on brain function.

Swedish research explains

Swedish research at Örebro University has studied the importance of vitamin K (especially vitamin K2) for the distribution of calcium in the body. Simply put, you can say that vitamin K distributes the calcium in the body, a bit like a policeman directing how road users should drive. The main purpose is to remove the calcium from the bloodstream (where it is transported around the body and in unfavorable cases can get stuck). The primary goal of calcium is where it does the most good - to strengthen the bone structure. Vitmain K2 has the ability to strengthen the bones without increasing the mineral content in general.

Bone-strengthening collaboration between K and D

The interaction between vitamin K2 and vitamin D is particularly beneficial. Namely, vitamin D has the ability to increase the availability of calcium in the body. When this ability is combined with vitamin K2's ability to distribute the calcium supply where it is most needed, the combination provides a very beneficial effect on the strength of the skeleton. An especially important feature for women who tend to suffer from osteoporosis after menopause.
