Does Vitamin D Need K2?

The COVID pandemic woke the world up to the importance of maintaining good health every day. But for most of us, maintaining a healthy balanced diet and lifestyle is a challenge at the best of times. One of the key nutrients required for good health (heart, bone, and immune) is Vitamin D. Our bodies can produce this vitamin through sun exposure. The problem is that even during the summer, it’s hard to get enough sunshine to produce adequate Vitamin D. During the spring, fall and winter, we don’t stand a chance.

Many people suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD is a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons and the corresponding reduction in sunshine exposure we experience in the fall, spring and winter. SAD saps your energy making you feel moody, gloomy, lacking motivation.

To combat the negative effects of low Vitamin D, Health Canada, the FDA, the NHS and most health regulators and experts recommend everyone take Vitamin D supplements daily. But is it enough?

The majority of Vitamin D’s action is due to its increasing your absorption of calcium. Calcium is (at least in part) responsible for muscle health, heart health, nerve health, bone health, immunity, and is believed to help protect against cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure. The problem is that vitamin D increases calcium absorption but doesn’t direct calcium to the places that need it. Unfortunately when calcium is in the wrong place,

Then there is Vitamin K2 (in the bioavailable MK-7 form). Vitamin K2’s action is also primarily due to calcium. K2 functions by removing calcium from where it doesn’t belong and putting it where it needs to be.
If calcium stays in the bloodstream it leads to arteriosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries) which can lead to heart attack and stroke. If it is deposited in the joints it can lead to arthritis. If it is deposited on the wrong part of bones it can lead to spurs. If it is deposited in kidneys or bladder it can lead to stones forming. All of these are places you don’t want calcium.

Both Vitamins D and K2 are fat-soluble and work together to absorb, metabolize and deposit calcium in your body by activating helpful proteins. While Vitamin D improves your calcium absorption, vitamin K2 designates where that calcium can be used.

You might say Vitamins D and K2 are the perfect pair. They’re good on their own, but much better together when they work together. The combination of Vitamins D and K2 has gained significant scientific and public attention recently due to their complementary effects on immune, heart and brain health. There has been an increase in promising research on the synergistic effect of combining these two vitamins in daily use.

If your calcium intake is too low to meet your daily needs, Vitamin D may pull calcium from your bones leading to osteoporosis. Vitamin K2 helps prevent this by promoting the calcification of your bones (reducing risk of osteoporosis).

Researchers have found ample evidence that taking Vitamins D and K2 together can help reduce the risk of developing numerous conditions including osteoporosis, heart disease, kidney disease, glaucoma, deep vein thrombosis, stroke, heart attack, arthritis, stones, spurs, and many more.
Vitamin D is key to good health. Everyone should take it daily. But D alone is not enough. To truly obtain and enjoy all the health benefits of Vitamin D, you need to take it with Vitamin K2 each and every day.
