Bonusan Vitamin D3 + K2 120softgels
Why the combination of vitamin D and vitamin K?
Vitamin D and vitamin K are important partner vitamins. While vitamin D ensures normal calcium levels in the blood, vitamin K ensures the absorption of calcium in the right place - in the bones - instead of unwanted places such as the kidneys or blood vessels.
It is well known that it is a challenge to produce enough vitamin D. This does not only apply to the dark days in autumn, our body's own vitamin D production can also fall short in spring and summer. Especially now that we are increasingly avoiding the sun, the only stimulant of vitamin D production in the skin. We spend a lot of time indoors and when we go outside we wear sunglasses, sun protection clothing and sunscreen. In the absence or avoidance of sunlight, vitamin D becomes an essential nutrient. It then becomes necessary to supplement vitamin D in a different way. We can get vitamin D from our diet, from oily fish such as salmon and mackerel, liver and egg yolk. Unfortunately, the amount of vitamin D that can be supplied through food is never as high as our own production in the skin and we, often unconsciously, suffer from vitamin D deficiencies.
Recently, a meta-analysis of scientific studies has proven that it is useful to combine vitamin D supplementation with vitamin K, because these two vitamins work together. Vitamin K is also found in food. Green leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach and parsley are rich sources of vitamin K1. However, this form is relatively difficult to absorb in the body. Vitamin K2, especially menaquinone-7, is considered the most efficient source of vitamin K. This form is produced by certain bacteria and is found in limited quantities in meat, dairy and eggs. Partly for this reason, our body often fails to get enough vitamin K from our diet. A supplement can then offer a solution.
The benefits of Bonusan Vitamin D3 & K2
Bonusan Vitamin D3 & K2 contains a high dose of both vitamin D and vitamin K, based on scientific insights. The small, easy-to-swallow softgel provides 75 mcg of vitamin D3 and 90 mcg of vitamin K2 and can therefore be used as a basic supplement, but also as part of a therapeutic process. The recommended dose of one softgel per day is best taken during or immediately after a meal.
High quality thanks to biologically active forms of vitamins D and K
We only process vitamin D3 in all our vitamin D products. This form is more effective at raising vitamin D levels than vitamin D2. Vitamin D3, as a biologically active form, is up to ten times stronger. We also use the biologically active form menaquinone-7 (MK7) from K2VITAL® for vitamin K2. This raw material is known for its high absorption and long half-life, which means that Bonusan Vitamin D3 & K2 only contains the highest quality raw materials.
To ensure proper absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins D and K in the body, we dissolve them in a fat matrix of extra virgin olive oil. Bonusan Vitamin D3 & K2 therefore contains no unnecessary additives and no added omega-6. This way we prevent it from adversely affecting the omega-3 – omega 6 ratio. We darkened the capsule wall using natural caramel for the stability of the naturally unstable vitamin K2.
Bonusan Vitamin D3 & K2 offers a solution as a daily supplement of vitamin D, because there is little exposure to the sun, for example, or because you fall into a risk group. Consult an expert if you use anticoagulant medication (blood thinners), vitamin K can influence their effect.
Vitamin D3 contributes to the proper absorption of calcium from the diet and vitamin K2 subsequently ensures the absorption of calcium in the bones. In addition, vitamin K2 contributes to normal blood clotting and vitamin D3 supports the immune system.
