Calcium K/D is a calcium dietary supplement with vitamins K and D for optimal bone and cardiovascular support.
High elemental calcium per capsule with vitamins K and D; supports cardiovascular health and may reduce the risk of osteoporosis**
Calcium K/D combines di-calcium malate with vitamins D and K for optimal bone support and reduces the risk of osteoporosis**. Di-calcium malate provides a high percentage of elemental calcium, fully chelated with the Krebs cycle intermediate malate for optimal absorption. Vitamin D promotes intestinal calcium absorption and reduces urinary calcium loss. A 7-year study involving over 30,000 women indicates that combined calcium and vitamin D supplementation promotes healthy hip bones. Vitamin K enhances bone formation by carboxylating osteocalcin. This enables osteocalcin to bind to calcium and promote healthy bone mineralization. Adequate intake of vitamin K1and K2may be especially important for optimal carboxylation in aging individuals. By activating matrix Gla–protein (MGP), vitamin K also helps maintain healthy calcium metabolism in vascular tissues, supporting healthy vascular elasticity.
**When providing adequate calcium throughout life as part of a well balanced diet.
