Opti Liquid Vitamin D3+K2
New research is focused on the synergistic relationship between vitamin K (specifically, vitamin K2) and vitamin D3, especially in terms of bone strength and cardiovascular health.
A growing body of research shows that when it comes to bone health, ensuring optimal intake of vitamin K is a critical piece of the puzzle. New research is focusing on the synergistic relationship between vitamin K (specifically, vitamin K2) and vitamin D3, especially in terms of bone strength and cardiovascular health. A group of naturally occurring and structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin K is essential for the proper utilization of calcium. Through its activation of the protein osteocalcin, vitamin K helps to bind newly absorbed calcium to the mineral matrix in bone. In addition, vitamin K has been found to help maintain bone mineral density by decreasing the activity of osteoclasts, a cell that breaks down the bone matrix. Therefore, vitamin K and vitamin D not only share similar qualities, but they also act in synergy within the body. Opti Liquid Vitamin D3+K2 includes 10 mcg of MenaQ7® PRO, the most widely studied form of vitamin K2 as MK-7, and 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 per serving. The tasteless liquid formula can easily be combined with any beverage.
1 or more drops per day (can be taken directly on the tongue or mixed with the beverage of your choice) or as recommended by your health care professional.
Vitamin K1 or K2 in the diet or taken via supplement will counteract the effects of the blood thinner Coumadin; Both K1 and K2 should be avoided if you are taking Coumadin.
However, K1 and/or K2 may safely be taken the following blood thinners: aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), dabagitran (Pradaxa), prasugrel (Effient), or rivaroxaban (Xarelto).
