Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient. It is one of the 24 micronutrients
critical for human survival. The sun is the major natural source of the
nutrient, but vitamin D is also found naturally in fish and eggs. It is also
added to dairy products.
Supplemental vitamin D is associated with a wide range of benefits,
including increased cognition, immune health, bone health and well-being.
Supplementation can also reduce the risks of cancer, heart disease, diabetes
and multiple sclerosis. People deficient in vitamin D may also experience
increased testosterone levels after supplementation.
The body produces vitamin D from cholesterol, provided there is an adequate
amount of UV light from sun exposure. There is only a sufficient amount of UV
light coming from the sun when the UV index is 3 or higher.
Most people are not deficient in vitamin D, but they do not have an optimal
level of vitamin D either. Due to the many health benefits of vitamin D,
supplementation is encouraged if optimal levels are not present in the body.
Vitamin K is an essential vitamin. It is one of the four fat-soluble

Optimal levels of vitamin K are associated with improved bone circumference
and diameter. Vitamin K can also protect cardiovascular health. It reduces the
calcification and stiffening of arteries, which reduces the risk of
Vitamin K’s main mechanism is through the vitamin K cycle, which is a
cyclical metabolic pathway that uses vitamin K to target specific proteins.
When a protein expresses glutamate, it is targeted by vitamin K, which causes
it to collect more calcium ions. Calcium ions are removed from the blood
stream, which prevents build up in the arteries.
Vitamin K is often supplemented alongside vitamin D, since vitamin D also supports
bone health. In fact, taking both together will improve the effects of each,
since they are known to work synergistically.
