Vitamin D-K3 Works Better Together For Your Body

Apr 05, 2023

Current research shows the important synergistic relationship between Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3. Taking Vitamin D3 with Vitamin K2 helps to ensure the calcium transported by the Vitamin D is absorbed by your bones where it's needed, rather than accumulating in deposits in your arteries

Read the below testimonial from a HealthSecretsUSA customer on our D3 - K2 Supplement

“I’m not a doctor, but I’ve done a lot of research on Vitamin D and have listened to a lot of smart people over the years.  This is what I’ve done.

In 2014, I had my Vitamin D blood serum level tested for the first time with the 25(OH)D blood test, aka 25-hydroxy vitamin D, and found out I was at 21.2 ng/ml.  I had heard from various trusted natural health people that the ideal levels are between 50 and 80 ng/ml, and up to 100 ng/ml if you’re fighting cancer.  A few years earlier, my chiropractor had shown me a list of diseases you could get if you were below 20 and 30 ng/ml, so I knew I needed to do something quick to turn things around. 

After a few years of taking 5,000 IU’s of Vitamin D3 alone on a fairly daily basis, along with a lot of other supplements, I had heard that you should take D3 with K2.  So I started doing that, and for some time I was taking only refrigerated cod liver oil capsules.  Then in 2019, I tested again and I had only gotten up to 38.4 ng/ml after five years of trying to raise my Vitamin D levels.

Then I saw Dr. Tai at the Trinity Health Freedom Expo at the end of 2019 and bought Vitamin D3-K2 Specialist at his booth, then ordered more online when I ran out.  I went up to 47.0 ng/ml the next time I tested in 2021!  And a year later in 2022, I was at 53.9, FINALLY into my target range!  I still have a way to go, but that’s due to me not being consistent with taking it every day, rather than the product not being effective.

Thank you!

Why should you take Vitamin D3 with K3?

The Synergistic Interplay between Vitamins D and K for Bone and Cardiovascular Health: A Narrative Review

"Vitamins D and K are both fat-soluble vitamins and play a central role in calcium metabolism. Vitamin D promotes the production of vitamin K-dependent proteins, which require vitamin K for carboxylation in order to function properly. Current evidence supports the notion that joint supplementation of vitamins D and K might be more effective than the consumption of either alone for bone and cardiovascular health. As more is discovered about the powerful combination of vitamins D and K, it gives a renewed reason to eat a healthy diet including a variety of foods such as vegetables and fermented dairy for bone and cardiovascular health."
