VIT D3 1000 IU K2 100 MCG VCAP 90

Scientists and health organizations around the world now recommend daily consumption of 1000 IU (or 25 mcg) of vitamin D to support many aspects of health, including bone and heart health. And the form most recommended for its superior bioavailability is vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Nature's Plus is pleased to offer products providing 1000 IU of vitamin D3. Nature's Plus Vitamin D3 1000 IU / Vitamin K2 100 mcg employs the most bioavailable, effective nutrient forms of these essential bone nutrients, for optimal absorption and utilization: vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and vitamin K2 (menatetrenone). Vitamin D The fat-soluble vitamin D's most important role is maintaining blood levels of calcium, which it accomplishes by increasing absorption of calcium from food and reducing urinary calcium loss. Both effects keep calcium in the body and therefore spare the calcium that is stored in bones. When necessary, vitamin D transfers calcium from the bone into the bloodstream, which does not benefit bones. Although the overall effect of vitamin D on the bones is complicated, some vitamin D is necessary for healthy bones and teeth. Where is it found? Cod liver oil is an excellent dietary source of vitamin D, as are vitamin D-fortified foods. Traces of vitamin D are found in egg yolks and butter. However, the majority of vitamin D in the body is created during a chemical reaction that starts with sunlight exposure to the skin. Cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) is the animal form of this vitamin. Vitamin K Vitamin K is needed for proper bone formation and blood clotting. In both cases, vitamin K does this by helping the body transport calcium. Vitamin K is used by doctors when treating an overdose of the drug warfarin. Also, doctors prescribe vitamin K to prevent excessive bleeding in people taking warfarin but requiring surgery.
