[Alert!] Important Warning About Vitamin D
By now, you know you need vitamin D.
Lots of it.
But vitamin D doesn’t act in a vacuum.
True, it might be the superstar, but it needs its supporting actors for it to fully do its job.
And if you want to make sure that vitamin D is helping to keep your bones strong—and your heart healthy—then you’ll want to be sure to add another “unsung hero” vitamin to your list.
Most people don’t get enough vitamin D.
But even if you’re getting all the vitamin D you need, it won’t be able to do its job effectively if you don’t ALSO have plenty of vitamin K.
You see, one of the key reasons why vitamin D is good for your bones is because of how it interacts with calcium.
Vitamin D helps increase your intestinal absorption of calcium. Without sufficient vitamin D, you could be loading up on calcium… and then flushing it right down the toilet.
It’s vitamin D’s interaction with calcium that makes it so important for preventing falls and fractures.
Making matters worse, if you have plenty of vitamin D—but not enough calcium—then vitamin D actually absorbs the calcium reserves from your bones, further contributing to brittle bones.
But here’s the kicker.
Your body also needs plenty of vitamin K to make sure that calcium makes it into your bones, and that it stays out of your arteries.
So, vitamin D ensures that your intestines can absorb all of the calcium you need.
And vitamin K makes sure all of that calcium goes where it’s supposed to (your bones), and that it stays out of your arteries.
No nutrient works in a vacuum, which is why I always recommend getting your nutrients through whole foods as a first course of action.
Food contains a wide array of nutrients that help balance one another out.
But if you’re going to supplement with vitamin D to ensure adequate levels, be sure you’re adding in vitamin K to the mix.
The specific form to look for is vitamin K2.
And to add in more K2 foods, be sure to eat fermented foods like natto, and cheese, chicken, and egg yolks.
P.S. Unless you’re taking vitamin D supplements in the right way, you’ll be flushing all of its benefits right down the drain. Find out why, right here.
