---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Numerous studies confirm that Vitamins D3 and K2 when working together in the human body have a far greater role to play than previously thought. Although overwhelming evidence suggests that Vitamin D3 is a key player in human health, the name is slightly misleading. Technically 'Vitamin' D is a potent neuroregulatory steroidal hormone that influences nearly 3,000 of your 25,000 genes. However, it has now been discovered that supplementing with Vitamin D3 as an isolated nutrient may encourage calcification of the arteries unless the body contains sufficient supplies of a supporting co-factor called Vitamin K2. Scientific research has now established Vitamin K2 as an essential nutrient, activating a number of proteins that enable calcium to build strong bones and stop calcium from accumulating in the arteries. Vitamin K2 helps out by reducing the amount of calcium circulating in the arteries that feed the heart. Hardening of the arteries is caused when calcium enters the arteries and lesions (plaques) are formed that can lead to the degeneration associated with heart disease.
Researchers from Leiden in the Netherlands found that people eating 1 ounce of Dutch cheese a day lived on average 7 years longer than those eating little or no cheese (Dutch cheese contains unusually high levels of K2). That single statistic on its own is astonishing - and all the evidence now points to the importance of Vitamin K2. The research linking Vitamin K2 to human health is very new, and indicates a vital role it has in keeping blood vessels flexible by stopping or reducing hardening of the arteries. Unfortunately some Doctors may not yet be aware of this important research.

Many adults in Europe and North America have undiagnosed Vitamin K deficiency... why?
• The production in the human body of Vitamin K is suppressed by Cholesterol lowering drugs (Statins) such as Lipitor and Zocor.
• The commonly used anticoagulant drug Warfarin interferes with the metabolism and function of Vitamin K by inhibiting the enzymes needed to produce Vitamin K. This drug can produce excessive bleeding and produces progressive widespread calcification of arteries and the aorta.
• Hydrogenated oils in margarine and baked foods may stop the proper utilization of vitamin K.
• Antibiotics destroy intestinal flora, which are the source of making vitamin K in the human gut.

Vitamin K helps to prevent Calcium Plaques from forming in the arteries, reducing the risk of Osteoporosis.
A clinical study from Rotterdam, Holland revealed a correlation between long term adequate Vitamin K2 intake and a lower incidence of calcification in the wall of the aorta - arteries with no plaques had a 20 to 50 fold increase in Vitamin K2 concentration when compared to arteries with arterial plaques. The arteries with a high K2 content were noted to be more flexible and elastic than arteries lacking K2. Lack of Vitamin K2 causes calcium to fail to be deposited in bones where it belongs and to be deposited instead in arteries, aorta, soft tissues including muscle, breast, kidneys and in heel spur. A protein called osteocalcin transports calcium to bone and Vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7) is used to solidify this calcium into the bone matrix. When Vitamin K2 is lacking the calcium remains in the blood and ends up getting deposited in the walls of arteries and other areas of the body which is very undesirable. Thus Vitamin K2 becomes a critical nutrient for both bone and arteries.
Dr. Leon Schurgers and Dr. Cees Vermeer of Maastricht University in Holland studied 4,800 elderly Dutch men and women to ascertain whether Vitamin K2 could help prevent artery calcium deposits. They learned that persons with the highest dietary intake of K2 had the least evidence of calcification of the aorta when compared to persons with low Vitamin K2 intakes.

The Body Needs Vitamin D3 together with sufficient co-factor, Vitamin K2.
A growing number of health care professionals are recognising the need for increased levels of vitamin D3. Research has proven vitamin D3 to be an essential vitamin in support of a healthy immune, cardiac and skeletal system. It has also been stated that for the body to get enough vitamin D3, you would have to drink 5 quarts of milk and eat/digest 5 servings of oily fish per day! You could always try to get 20 minutes of sun between the hours of 11am and 1pm, with AT LEAST 40% of the body exposed - however this is not practical for many people....
But what about vitamin K2? The body needs that, too. Vitamin K helps direct minerals to their proper place within the body, as well as supports the health of bones and the heart. Using Vitamin K2 with vitamin D3 allows the body to process, absorb and distribute Vitamin D3 to all the cells, providing the highest benefit to the body....
Primal Food Store supply a pharmaceutical grade D3-K2 Liposome supplement containing the vitamins D3 and K2 (MK-7) which is immediately bio-available via the lining of the mouth (mucosa) for effective delivery throughout the body. This delivery method maximizes the absorption of these vitamins into the cells, allowing those cells to activate their proteins and fulfill their purpose of supporting human health...

Benefits:
Vitamin D3 plus K2 in an advanced and unique delivery system; a liposome spray provides immediate and efficient bio-availability, by-passing the digestive system (unlike capsules) to assist in the absorption and direction of calcium, support the immune system, and may also help to combat osteoporosis, prostate, cardiac and breast issues.

Economical: As an example, using 1 Spray (D3 1000IU & K2 120mcg) per day, one bottle will last for 375 days! If you use 5 sprays (5000IU and K2 600mcg) per day, then one bottle will last for 75 days.

Clinical Information:
Fat-soluble Vitamin D3 is converted by the kidneys into the hormone calcitriol, arguably the most potent steroid hormone in the human body. These are genes that are either making proteins that are essential to fighting cancer, or genes that are making proteins that are promoting diseases like cancer.
However, without the presence of correctly ratioed Vitamin K2 in the form of MK 4 & 7, the mechanism is thwarted. This is equally true with respect to D3. Our pharmaceutical grade Vitamin D3 and vital complement Vitamin K2 (MK4 & 7) provides an advanced, immediately bio-available delivery system via a liposome spray. Vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 deficiency is a world-wide epidemic. Vitamin D3 is required for the absorption of minerals such as calcium, whereas Vitamin K2 is needed to direct minerals to the right place, preventing an inappropriate calcification of soft tissues. Likewise, cells only produce osteocalcin and the matrix Gla-protein in the presence of vitamin D, but vitamin K2 is necessary to activate those proteins to fulfill their purpose. Over 1 billion people are at risk for associated Vitamin D3 and K2 deficiencies. Almost daily, references to vitamin D dominate the headlines, including a recent ABC news report that Vitamin D reduces the incidence of macular degeneration by as much as 70%. Paradoxically, very little is being said about Vitamin K2 and there is overwhelming evidence confirming the safety of vitamin D is dependent on adequate vitamin K2.
Recent studies have shown the more expensive vitamin K (MK7) to be more complete and have additional heart benefits including the inhibition of calcium deposits in the arteries. In fact one very significant study conducted in the Netherlands in 2004 followed 4800 healthy men and women for 10 years. It found vitamin K2 reduced the risk of coronary heart disease mortality by 50% and aortic calcification was also reduced by 30-40% in the famous Rotterdam study.

In the liver, the first pathway for vitamin D cholecalciferol is turned into calcidiol (a pre-hormone in the blood that is directly made from cholecalciferol. The first priority for calcidiol is to go to the kidney where it makes enough calcitiol to regulate serum and cellular calcium. However, if the reserve is low, or if the liver phases of detoxification are compromised due to faulty conversion processes, most calcidiol takes this first pathway as survival always comes first in the physical hierarchy.

The second Vitamin D pathway leads to the tissues and that is where the action is. All of the amazing health benefits of vitamin D discovered in the last 10 years are from vitamin D going down the second pathway. IF the kidneys are getting all the calcidiol they need to maintain serum calcium, then calcidiol is then able to take another pathway, one that leads directly to the cells. This path is only now being fully understood and is causing excitement all around the world, especially concerning serious conditions. These are the autocrine (inside cell) functions of the vitamin D system. The more calcidiol the cells get, the more calcitriol they make. No other steroid hormone system in the body works this way.
