Vitamin D5000 Plus K1 & K2

$ 35.00

The Perfect Combo : Vit D plus K1 & K2: Vitamin K is used to enhance the metabolism of Vitamin D and helps protect against COVID-19!

Essential for the strengthening of the immune system, and for the efficient absorption, utilization, and excretion of calcium and phosphorus, Akasha Naturals Vitamin D Plus K1 & K2 features 5000 IU of vitamin D3 – the most bioavailable form.

Like vitamin D, Vitamin K is also an essential, fat-soluble vitamin that plays a role in bone mineralization and cardiovascular health. Also known as menaquinone 7 (or MK7), Vit K2 promotes healthy cardiovascular function and is a vital nutrient in the metabolism of bone protein that leads to higher bone integrity. While Vitamin D3 enhances the absorption of calcium, Vitamin K2 helps guide that calcium to the bones (where we want it) rather than the arteries of the heart (where we do not want it).

Besides helping protect against several forms of cancers, the latest evidence on the fight against COVID-19 has shown how effective vitamin D is to help restore people's health.

Properties of D as per research:
  • Produced naturally in the body in a reaction catalyzed by the sun's UV light. But because sunscreen is a must these days, the effective amount UV light for conversion is significantly decreased. 
  • Vitamin D must, therefore, be supplemented.
  • Helps prevent and aid the treatment of breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease, depression, weight gain, COVID-19, and other maladies.
  •  Modulates the immune system and facilitates the maturation of white blood cells.  
  • Deficiency also results in soft bones in children and fragile bones in adults (osteomalacia/osteoporosis).

Why Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is so crucial that our bodies convert it to its potent active forn (D3) after skin exposure to sufficient sunlight. But this is a problem for people in northern climates. In the U.S., for example, only people who live south of Los Angeles up to Columbia, S.C., get enough sunlight for vitamin D3 production throughout the year. Because of the effects of pollution and other ecological damages to the environment, the ability of the atmosphere to filter out ultraviolet radiation, mainly through the ozone layer, has been severely compromised. As such, it is now recommended that we all wear sunscreen at most times of the day when exposed to the sun, which leads to an even higher incidence of vitamin D deficiency no matter where we live.

Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease, depression, weight gain, and other maladies. Studies show that people with higher levels of vitamin D have a lower risk of these diseases. It is now estimated that most Americans are Vitamin D deficient. Because dark skin absorbs less sunlight when compared to light-skinned people, vitamin D deficiency is even higher in dark-skinned Latinos, African-Americans, and others. The most substantial proven benefit of vitamin D is in helping calcium build strong bones. Along with calcium, regular exercise, and a healthy diet, Vitamin D is essential in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

Why Vit K 1 & 2:

Vitamin K is essential because it is involved in blood clotting. It is required to make proteins for bone, cartilage, and blood vessel health. Vitamin K is vital to keep tissues from calcifying, that is, from stiffing our arteries. New research has highlighted how vital VIT K is to optimal health. A recently published Analysis in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that adults, especially those 60 and above, with low blood levels of vitamin K had a 19 percent higher risk of dying early from any cause. Low vitamin K has been linked to arterial calcification, also known as calcium buildup in the arteries. Atherosclerosis happens when Calcium builds up in the coronary arteries. This buildup can also occur in arteries throughout the body, causing arterial stiffening, which leads to increase risk of mortality."

There are two main types of vitamin K1 and K2. K1 is mostly found in dark green vegetables, whereas K2 (which comprises several forms) is found in animal products, such as egg yolks, beef, and fermented foods. K2 is also produced by the healthy bacteria in our gut.
