An anti-age vitamin that promotes healthy bones and blood vessels.
Clinical studies show that our bodies need a daily intake of at least 180 micrograms to achieve maximal beneficial effect. EQ K2+ therefore contains 200 mcg, and 40 mcg vitamin D3 in each daily dosage 1 capsule.
Who needs vitamin k2?
The research results published over the past decade demonstrate that vitamin K2 is an important contributor to the development of bone substance while growing up, it helps us to have strong bones through a normal life and reduces the risk of becomeing osteoporotic. In addition, there is evidence that a regular intake of vitamin K2 helps to keep the blood vessels flexible – which in turn reduces the risk of developing hypertension and cardiovascular or circulatory diseases.
Vitamine K2 – (menaquinone), flaxseed oil (Linum usitatissimum), vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), gelatin (capsule), stabilizer (glycerol), coloring (iron oxides and hydroxides).
Vitamin K’s effects are manifested through the vitamin’s action as an auxiliary factor of enzymatic activation of several specialized proteins essential for optimal physiological and biochemical processes. Most notable is the activation of several coagulation factors – necessary to clot blood and stop bleedings. This is the reason why everybody needs a minimum amount of vitamin K in order to survive. Through a healthy diet – including green vegetables – we get vitamin K1. Vitamin K2 on the other hand is hard to find in the Western diet because the vitamin is made by the “good” bacterias used in the fermentation of certain foods. Such foods are unfortunately too scarce in the Western diet, unlike in some Asian countries where you commonly find the dish natto. This dish contains high amount of vitamin K2 and is classified as a health food in Japan.
So far, Vitamin K is best documented in relation to bone health. Decreased bone mass and bone strength may lead to bone fractures. This is why it is important to dedicate special attention to the vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for maintaining healthy bone structure.
Although vitamin D is commonly called a vitamin, it is not really an essential vitamin since it can be produced in the skin by sun exposure. In many countries, the high and prolonged sun exposure and content in food can be sufficient. However, there is no international recommendations for how much tanning one should subject oneself to in order to achieve adequate vitamin D levels in the body. The disadvantage of intense sun exposure may cause an increased risk of skin cancer, hence the ongoing discussion amongst scientists concerning the use of solariums and sunscreens. This makes supplements a good option for maintaining the levels of vitamin D3.
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) is the form of vitamin D formed by sunlight exposure. This form is converted in the liver to the biologically active 1,25 dihydroxy vitamin D.
