Vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 (MK7) are very important vitamins for our body. If our body lacks them, it can suffer many health problems. Because of today’s wrong eating habits and lifestyle, we don’t get these two vital ingredients from our diet or vitamin D3 is not formed under the skin as it should be. Therefore Earth’s Wisdom has come up with a ground-breaking product which contains 5000IU of D3 and 120 mcg of K2 (MK-7) per 1 veggie capsule. Here are health benefits you will get from this unique product.
Vitamin D is available in two forms, viz. vitamin D2 and vitamin D3. Vitamin D is an umbrella term that refers to both these forms. Once both these forms are inside the body, they have the same effect.
Vitamin D2 is also called ergocalciferol and is formed in mushrooms with the help of sunlight. Vitamin D3 is also known as cholecalciferol and is made under our skin. It’s necessary for both these forms to get converted into a hormone called calcitriol to become active in our body and start benefiting it.
When our skin absorbs the ultraviolet B rays in the sunlight, a substance known as pre-vitamin D3 is formed and is transferred to liver to take the form of vitamin D3 or calcidiol. Calcidiol is carried to the kidneys with the help of special proteins. In the kidneys, it is converted into its active form, calcitriol. How much sunlight your body gets decides how much vitamin D3 is formed in your body and that depends on factors like clouds, clothes and sunscreen. Sunscreen with SPF 8 reduces the production of vitamin D in the body by 95%, as found out by the Linus Pauling Institute. However, you should limit your sunlight exposure to keep away from skin cancer and you should get some vitamin D from your diet. Therefore, our new product contains 5000IU of vitamin D3.
Without enough vitamin D3, it’s of no use how much calcium you consume to make your bones strong, because it’s vitamin D that controls the absorption of dietary calcium. Regulation of growth of cells is also a function of vitamin D3. These cells include those which activate your immunity and kill bacteria.
Another vital ingredient our body needs is vitamin K2 (MK-7). Here you should understand that just like vitamin D, vitamin K is also classified into vitamin K1 and K2.
Vitamin K1 is found in green vegetables and goes straight to the liver and helps body to maintain a healthy clotting system. It also prevents calcification of blood vessels and helps your bones develop correct crystalline structure and retain calcium.
Vitamin K2 is produced by bacteria and it’s present on a large amount in your gut; however, most of it is passed out through your stool. K2 goes directly to bones, vessel walls and tissues other than liver. Vitamin K2 is found in fermented foods, especially in cheese and natto (a Japanese food).
Vitamin K1 can get converted to K2 inside the body; however, there is a problem with this. K2 thus produced only through this process is often inadequate. Further things become more complicated as K2 exists in different forms. Out of these, MK-8 and MK-9 are present in dairy products. MK-4 and MK-7 are two most important forms of K2 and work quite differently in our body. However, MK-4 has a very short half-life (1 hour) and so is a poor candidate to become a dietary supplement.
On the other hand, MK-7 stays in our body for longer and has much longer half-life (3 days) which means it can help the body to build a steady blood level, in comparison to MK-4 or K1.
Vitamin K2 (especially menaquinone-7 or MK-7) prevents inflammation by stopping pro-inflammatory markers generated by white blood cells known as monocytes. Vitamin K2 also works synergistically with a lot of other nutrients, including calcium and vitamin D. It helps move calcium into the right areas of your body, such as teeth and bones. What’s more, it also removes calcium from areas where it shouldn’t be, such as soft tissues and arteries.
Thus the new supplement by Earth’s Wisdom provides you two most essential vitamins, vitamin D3 and K2. Make use of it and enjoy health!
