Description

Vitamin D and vitamin K have diverse and complementary physiological functions, close associations with age-related and chronic diseases, and a strong body of clinical evidence documenting widespread insufficiency and therapeutic potential. 1, 2 Vitamin D has both hormonal and non-hormonal functions, with vitamin D receptors translating into a myriad of physiological actions, ranging from bone metabolism to modulation of immune activity.

Vitamin D regulates the expression of hundreds of genes, influences cellular proliferation and signaling, insulin production and sensitivity,and is a critical inhibitor of several inflammatory pathways. 5, 6 Insufficiency has been linked to increases in cardiovascular disease, cancer risk, diabetes and metabolic syndrome, as well as overall mortality.

Vitamin K-dependent (VKD) proteins also have a nearly ubiquitous presence and regulate diverse functions including cellular growth, arterial calcification and bone metabolism. 12 Clinically, low intakes are associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, fracture and all-cause mortality. 13, 14, 15, 16 Vitamins K and D have complementary physiological functions, and clinical trials have shown synergistic benefit for both osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease when used together.

- Provides clinically effective doses of vitamins D and K per softgel

Warning:

Consult a health care professional prior to use if you are taking blood thinners. Patients with chronic kidney or liver disease, sarcoidosis, lymphoma, tuberculosis, hypercalcemia, or those undergoing hemodialysis should only use under medical supervision. Consult a health professional before taking this or any other product. Consult your physician for more information.

Contraindications:

When taken with a thiazide medication (diuretic), vitamin D may increase the risk for hypercalcemia. Also, vitamin D may improve insulin sensitivity and lower blood pressure, requiring a reduction in dosage of hypertension and/or diabetic medications. Vitamin K may antagonize the effect of some anticoagulant medications, particularly warfarin, and should be taken together only with medical supervision. Recent data suggests vitamin K supplementation may stabilize INR’s and reduce adverse effects among those on vitamin K antagonists, but combined use should be carefully monitored.

Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place. Safety-sealed for your protection and for product freshness. Do not use if seal is missing or broken
