Bone Booster is a unique formula containing vitamin K2 MK-7 and vitamin D3. Although
women are taking calcium in record numbers, there has not been a decrease in the
rates of osteoporosis and osteopenia. Calcium on its own will not build strong bones.
It is essential to take bone-building nutrients including vitamin K2 MK-7 and vitamin
D3 along with Collagen Plus to prevent fractures and promote bone health.
Vitamin K2 MK-7 and Bone Health
Vitamin K is associated with osteoblasts. Osteoblasts are cells that build bone
and produce a protein called osteocalcin. Osteocalcin is a protein-like glue that
incorporates calcium into the bones. Without vitamin K2, osteocalcin cannot be produced
in the body. Without vitamin K to control calcium, calcium can drift out of the
bones and into arteries and other soft tissues. Vitamin K2 redirects the calcium
Vitamin K2 MK-7 and Heart Health
Studies have shown that an adequate intake of vitamin K2 helps to reduce the risk
of coronary heart disease. In one study, those who supplemented with vitamin K2
had a lower risk of aortic calcifi cation and coronary heart disease than those
who supplemented with vitamin K1.
Vitamin K2 and Blood Clotting
"K" in vitamin K comes from the German word koagulation. Vitamin K1 is used by your
liver as a clotting factor, whereas vitamin K2 is used by the brain, vasculature,
breasts and kidneys. In fact, in the brain, vitamin K2 contributes to the production
of myelin and fats essential for brain health and protects against oxidative damage.
Taking broad-spectrum antibiotics can reduce vitamin K production in the gut by
nearly 74 percent compared to people not taking these antibiotics. Additionally,
the elderly have reduced vitamin K2 production. Deficiencies can lead to nose bleeds,
easy bruising and extremely heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia). It is important
to take vitamin K2 with Estrosmart to help alleviate heavy periods.
Vitamin K2 MK-7: The Superior Source
Vitamin K2 (menaquinone MK-7) from the Japanese food natto is the best source of
vitamin K2. Half of the vitamin K that our body absorbs is from green leafy vegetables.
Unfortunately, most foods thought to be rich in vitamin K have less vitamin K than
previously thought. Most multivitamins do not even contain vitamin K and those that
do do not have enough. Smart women supplement with Vitamin K2 MK-7:
Advantages of Vitamin K2 MK-7 Over Other Forms of Vitamin K
1. 10 times more absorption than other forms of vitamin K
2. Regulates calcium in blood vessels to promote bone health
3. MK-7 created probiotics in the gastrointestinal system
4. Non-animal sourced and suitable for vegetarians/vegans Vitamin D3 for Strong Bones
Like vitamin K2 MK-7, vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption. A defi ciency
in vitamin D leads to decreased calcium absorption, promoting osteoporosis and other
conditions such as osteoarthritis, muscle cramps and twitching, joint pain and stiff
ness, backache, tooth decay and hair loss. Vitamin D is essential for the manufacture
of thyroid hormone, and many people with low thyroid are vitamin-D deficient.
Are You Vitamin-D Deficient?
Many people are deficient in vitamin D, which is formed in the body by the action
of the sun's ultraviolet rays on the skin. As we age, our bodies become less effi
cient at manufacturing vitamin D. Vitamin D is strongly anti-cancer and this connection
is one of the most important areas of study today. It is important to choose the
most active and powerful form of vitamin D: vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol).
