Osteovit® D3K2 chewable tablets contain a combination of vitamins D3 and K2, which are the perfect vitamin duo for strong bones, a healthy heart and strong immunity.
Concomitant use of vitamins D3 and K2 is the most effective way to improve bone mineral density – vitamin D3 and K2 synergistically potentiate the adequate incorporation of calcium into the bone matrix, preventing its deposition in soft tissues and vascular calcification.
Vitamin D3 increases the absorption of calcium in the intestines, as well as the production of osteocalcin and the matrix Gla protein (MGP), two key proteins that bind calcium and build it into the bones. Vitamin K2 is the only activator of these proteins, without which they would remain in a form that has no physiological activity.
Vitamin K2 in Osteovit® D3K2 chewable tablets is microencapsulated, in the form of all-trans menaquinone-7 (MK-7), a superior form of vitamin K2, which has the longest effect and the highest bioavailability. Studies on the effects of the MK ‑ 7 form of vitamin K2 have shown a significant reduction in arterial stiffness and a slowed progression of calcification, two important factors affecting cardiovascular health. One Osteovit® D3K2 chewable tablet contains 75 µg of vitamin K2, which is 100% of its recommended daily intake.
In the body, vitamin D3 is also important for achieving strong immunity. Insufficient levels of vitamin D in the body are associated with an increased susceptibility to infections. Vitamin K2, like vitamin D3, has an anti-inflammatory effect, affecting several metabolic pathways that are involved in inflammatory processes and the release of cytokines, so the combined action of these two vitamins promotes a healthy immune and inflammatory response.
