Supports bone and vascular health.
Vitamin D3 & K2 by Bioclinic Naturals contains the bioactive and highly bioavailable D3 and K2 (Menaquinone-7) (MK-7) (natto bean) forms. Combining vitamins D and K may provide even better support than the individual nutrients for bone and vascular health.
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.
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.
Vitamin K-dependent (VKD) proteins also have a nearly ubiquitous presence and regulate diverse functions including cellular growth, arterial calcification and bone metabolism.
Vitamins K and D have complementary physiological functions, and clinical trials have shown synergistic benefit for both osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease when used together.
Vitamin D3 & K2 Benefits:
Provides clinically effective doses of vitamins D and K per softgel
Vitamin D3 has the highest potency for increasing serum and storage levels of vitamin D

A D3 and MK-7 combination has a synergistic benefit compared to single nutrient therapy
Vitamin D3 & K2 Ingredients in 1 softgel: Vitamin D3 1000 IU (Cholecalciferol) and Vitamin K2 120 mcg (Menaquinone-7)(MK-7)(natto bean). Other ingredients: Softgel (gelatin, glycerin, purified water, caramel, titanium dioxide), medium chain triglycerides (coconut), beeswax and soy lecithin.
Suggested Use: Take 1 softgel per day or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
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 INRs and reduce adverse effects among those on vitamin K antagonists, but combined use should be carefully monitored.
