    • Synergistic support for bone health• Promotes healthy calcium metabolism• Helps maintain cardiovascular health Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and Vitamin K2-7 (menaquinone) work synergistically to help maintain bone health. Vitamin D3 helps maintain healthy serum calcium levels by promoting intestinal absorption and reducing urinary excretion of calcium. Vitamin K2-7 supports healthy bone mineralization by acting as a cofactor in the carboxylation of osteocalcin, allowing calcium to bind to this protein in the extracellular matrix of bone.Vitamin K2-7 also supports healthy cardiac and vascular function. This form of Vitamin K concentrates in the tissues of the arteries, where it aids in carboxylation of Matrix Gla Protein to help maintain normal calcium metabolism and support healthy vascular elasticity. Additionally vitamin K2 may help support healthy lipid levels and glucose metabolism.Although frank vitamin K deficiency is rare, research suggests the Western diet may not contain sufficient Vita-min K2-7 to optimize carboxylation of Gla outside the liver. Higher dietary intakes of K2 have been associated with healthy levels of arterial calcification and elasticity.Compared to other forms of Vitamin K, Vitamin K2-7 has a longer half-life, resulting in more stable levels in the body. For best absorption of these fat soluble vitamins, take with a mixed meal or some healthy dietary fat.   Dietary Considerations Wheat Free Dairy/ Milk Free Gluten Free Soy Free Sugar Free Egg Free   Suggested Use 1 capsule daily ideally with food to increase absorption, or as directed by your healthcare professional.   Serving Size: 1 Vegetable Capsule   Servings Per Container: 60   Amount Per Serving % Daily Value Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) (2000 IU) 50 mcg 350% Vitamin K2-7 (1900mcg menaquinone-7 (MK-7)) 150 mcg 125%   Other Ingredients: Vegetable Cellulose Capsule, Cellulose, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Leucine   Warnings Store sealed in a cool dry place.

Calcium Supplements Products

Nearly two percent of the human body is made up of calcium. In fact, it is the most abundant mineral in the human body because strong bones are mostly made of it. However, the bones are not the only part of the body that benefits from calcium. A good number of enzymes are dependent upon calcium for proper functioning. Calcium aids in blood coagulation and the proper functioning of the heart and nervous system. Sadly, many people are deficient in calcium, and this causes the body to rob the bones, leading to osteoporosis. For excellent overall health, it is smart to make good use of calcium supplements combined with vitamin D, which facilitates good calcium absorption.

Calcium can be very helpful in treating symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), and it is also helpful in treating pain during menstruation. It is also believed that pregnant women should receive the correct amount of calcium supplementation to help ward off the possibility of preeclampsia. Some studies have shown it to be helpful in treating disorders such as migraine headaches and attention deficit. Proper levels of calcium also help prevent a variety of cancers. This is especially true for women during and after menopause who also benefit from calcium supplementation to help prevent osteoporosis.

Naturally, calcium is helpful in preventing bone loss and also in maintaining healthy teeth. It is important to understand that mega-doses of calcium are neither necessary, nor desirable. The body can only absorb a maximum of 500 milligrams of calcium at a time, so it is best to supplement with this amount along with vitamin D and also eat a diet that is rich in calcium. Some of the best natural sources of calcium include dairy products, sardines, tofu, calcium fortified cereals and green, leafy vegetables. Vita Living provides an excellent assortment of calcium and vitamin D dietary supplements.
