WHC Vitamin K2 + D3

Are you getting enough vitamin K and D? 

Vitamin K2 + D3 MenaQ7 Crystals address the body’s need for these vital nutrients. Manufactured by award-winning supplement company WHC, famous for their range of high-quality fish oils, the product helps promote healthy bones, muscle and immunity.

It is not sufficient to raise vitamin D levels alone; vitamin K is needed, since the pair work as a team to properly build calcium levels in the body. If you wish to enjoy the full benefits of vitamin D, therefore, it is crucial to consume both in adequate quantities. WHC's supplement is unmatched in terms of ingredient dosage and purity, providing the most physiologically active forms of each nutrient.

Why You Need Vitamins K and D

Both vitamin K and D have important roles in the body. Vitamin K contributes to normal blood clotting and the maintenance of normal bones; it’s also considered crucial for liver and skin health, hence its inclusion in many anti-ageing treatments. 

Dubbed the Sunshine Vitamin, Vitamin D contributes to a broad range of physiological functions. Our bodies use it to manage the amount of calcium in our blood, bones and gut, and to help cells throughout the body communicate effectively. The immune system also uses vitamin D to make antimicrobial weapons which puncture holes in bacteria and viruses.

Vitamin D additionally contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle function, bones, teeth and immune function. Although the human body can produce its own when exposed to sunlight, the absence of prolonged spells of sunshine in many countries (including, sadly, our own!) means a very real risk of vitamin D deficiency. In severe cases, deficiency can cause bone deformities such as rickets in children.

As noted by the Vitamin D Council, deficiency has been linked to conditions as diverse as cancer, asthma, type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, Alzheimer’s and autoimmune diseases. 

Reasons for Vitamin D Deficiency

Not getting enough sunlight is the main reason you may need to use a vitamin D supplement. However, studies have also shown that obesity can lead to low levels of vitamin D in the body. It is thought that vitamin D may become trapped inside fat tissue, so less is able to circulate in the blood.

As of 2016, public health advice for the UK recommends that everyone take vitamin D supplements during autumn and winter. According to official estimates, as many as one in five adults and one in six children in England could be deficient. Those who get little sunlight whatever the season (residents of care homes, people who cover up etc) should supplement all year round.

Could Vitamin D Stop Colds or Flu? 

A 2017 study by the Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), meanwhile, suggests vitamin D supplements could spare over three million people from colds or flu in the UK each year. The analysis was published in the British Medical Journal, with researchers going so far as to argue that foods should be fortified with the vitamin.

Balance Your Vitamin D with Vitamin K

The way vitamins and minerals work in your body is interconnected: to get the maximum benefit from vitamin D, the presence of cofactors is crucial. 

Like magnesium and zinc, vitamin K is an essential cofactor of vitamin D, the pair working synergistically to strengthen bones. While vitamin D helps get calcium in the body, vitamin K activates proteins which guide that calcium into bones and teeth and away from arteries and organs. You can read more about the relationship between vitamins D and K here.

Although there are three forms of vitamin K (K1, K2 and K3), K2 remains biologically active in the body for longer than the others. It is also better absorbed. Similarly, D3 is the preferred form of vitamin D. Not only is it identical to the kind produced by the body, but we use D3 at least three times more efficiency than D2.

Using a good-quality supplement like WHC’s Vitamin K2 + D3 MenaQ7 Crystals, therefore, is an excellent way of aiding bone, muscle and immune health, as well as helping to maintain good blood calcium levels. 

The supplement employs the vitamin K2 type known as menaquinone 7 (MK-7 in the form of MenaQ7 crystals), a soy-free equivalent to natto, the staple of traditional Japanese breakfasts. Each pearl tablet contains 90 mcg of high-purity vitamin K2 (over 95%) plus 1,000 i.u. of vitamin D3 – more than enough to meet your daily requirements. 

Caution: If you’re taking blood-thinning medication such as Warfarin or Coumadin, you should consult your doctor before taking vitamin K.
