Calcium is the most abundant mineral in your body
99% of calcium occurs in bones and teeth. The remaining 1% found in the blood and soft tissues. Calcium is what helped your bones grow during your childhood. Adequate intake of calcium combats the decline of bone mass, supports bone recovery, and prevents fractures.
Research shows that a 10% increase in bone mass at the end of adolescence can lead to a 50% decrease in the risk of fractures later in life. This alone shows the importance of getting enough calcium intake throughout all stages of life - especially among post-menopausal women, children and older adults.
K2 promotes heart health
Calcium is required to build and maintain healthy bones. But did you know that excess calcium can get deposited in your arteries, leading to arterial stiffening and potential heart disease? Vitamin K2 activates the matrix Gla protein (MGP), which binds excess calcium to bones and prevents it from depositing into your arteries.
D3 is a powerful immune-booster
Vitamin D3 plays an important role in your immune function. For an efficient defense against invading pathogens, your immune cells, specifically T cells, require high levels of vitamin D3. If there isn’t a sufficient supply of D3 in your body, you’re more susceptible to illness and disease.
K2 and D3 go hand-in-hand
Vitamin D3, sometimes known as the “sunshine vitamin” is naturally synthesized when our skin is exposed to sunlight. It plays a vital role in calcium absorption in the intestine. Almost 99% of your vitamin D supply is used to regulate calcium, with the remaining supply used to strengthen the immune system and help maintain muscle strength.
Without sufficient levels of vitamin K2, it is difficult for calcium to be deposited into our bones. When not deposited in our bones, excess calcium can be deposited in the cardiovascular system, where it can have harmful effects. Vitamin K2 prevents this from happening.
Calcium is a powerful bone builder
Combining vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 promotes healthy calcium metabolism and therefore healthy bone and teeth mineralization, muscle strength and recovery, cardiovascular health and immune system function.

The typical Western diet does not contain a sufficient amount of vitamin K2, and as such, supplementation is beneficial to everyone. Simply squeeze 17 drops directly on the tongue, or into a glass of water or juice and mix well.
Taking 0.5mL (17 drops) is the optimal dosage. We recommend monitoring the body’s response in the first days of taking K2D3 and reducing the dosage, as needed.
Vitamin K activates proteins that play a role in blood clotting, calcium metabolism and heart health. One of its most important functions is to regulate calcium deposition. Vitamin K2 as MK-7 activates the greatest proportion of osteocalcin. Once activated, osteocalcin binds calcium in the bloodstream for transport into the bone matrix, and it also activates the Gla protein which helps to ensure calcium is transported to bones and not areas where it can be harmful.
Vitamin D3 - sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” - plays an important role in your immune health and the absorption of calcium. If you live in an area with little to no sunlight, it’s important that you supplement vitamin D3.
