Discover how Vitamin K2 may help utilise Calcium and Vitamin D for better bone building and healthier bone support!
Did you know every bone in your body is completely reformed about every 10 years? This process is regulated by Osteoblasts, cells that build up your skeleton and Osteoclasts, cells which break down your skeleton. As long as the bone building activity of Osteoblasts exceeds the destructive action of Osteoclasts, the process of maintaining healthy bone is kept under control.
Osteoblasts produce a Vitamin K dependent protein called Osteocalcin. It needs Vitamin K2, like that found in Carusos Vitamin K2, to become biologically active and function properly. Once this happens, Osteocalcin binds Calcium to your bone matrix and helps build healthy bones. This makes your skeleton stronger. Without adequate Vitamin K2 Calcium will not properly attach to your bones. There is no way around this important step in bone formation. Vitamin K2 helps maintain bone strength. It also may help support and maintain bone mineral density.
Calcium belongs in your bones
Carusos Vitamin K2 may help support and maintain strong, healthy bones. Vitamin K2 is the most biologically active form of Vitamin K. It is the most beneficial for bone health maximisation. Vitamin K2 also helps remove Calcium from areas where it shouldnt be, such as soft tissue and your cardiovascular system. Vitamin K2 does this by removing Calcium from your blood and moving it to your bones and teeth. This is important because if you have low Vitamin K2 levels, the Calcium in your body may collect in your blood leading to calcification of soft tissue areas.
Bone building nutrients belong together
The major use of Calcium in your body is in your skeleton (and teeth). You need a steady supply of Calcium to help keep up the constant repair and rebuilding of your bones. But the problem with Calcium is thinking about it in isolation. In nature, nutrients do not come in isolated packages.
Calcium for example, may be better taken with Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3. If you take a Calcium supplement, its important to maintain a proper balance between Calcium, Vitamin D and Vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3 naturally complement each other.
