Vitamin D is a collection of forms of a pro-hormone fat-soluble nutrient. A crucial element in many reactions and processes in the body, there is a well-reported and well-documented widespread deficiency in Vitamin D. This deficiency is due to several factors including lack of exposure to direct sunlight and an imbalanced diet that provides poor nutrients. Many are caught in a Catch-22 scenario of having a condition caused by a Vitamin D deficiency that is now blocking the body's strategies for synthesizing more. Any Vitamin D is acquired through food, exposure to sunlight and supplements but these forms are inactive until converted into its bioactive form, 25-hydroxy vitamin D, through an enzymatic process in the liver and kidneys. Almost every cell in the body has receptor sites for this converted form of Vitamin D but there are conditions limiting this conversion. People with fat malabsorption, toxicity syndrome, inflammatory condition (including obesity), or impaired liver/kidney function (often caused by painkillers like NSAIDS to relieve inflammation abetted by a lack of Vitamin D) are unable to convert Vitamin D into its bioactive form.

Key Features

By assessing the specific imbalance in the body and determining the patient's actual need for D supplementation through a serum blood test, a strategy of diet, lifestyle and D supplements can be implemented. Vitamin D promotes bone mineralization and remodeling by enhancing intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus, boosting calcium and phosphorus reabsorption in the kidney, and regulating their levels in serum. In addition to supporting bone health, vitamin D also helps modulate inflammation, glucose sensitivity, and immune function. Additional vitamin D benefits suggested by clinical research include direct anti-viral activity, improved balance and reduction of falls in the elderly, and inhibition of uncontrolled cell proliferation.

Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin stored in fat tissues and the liver. Research suggests vitamin K plays a strong role in supporting bone and vascular health due to its synergistic relationship with calcium and vitamin D. This relationship can be summarized as follows: Vitamin D helps boost calcium levels in the blood by enhancing its intestinal absorption and kidney reabsorption; vitamin K helps guide circulating calcium into bone tissue. Vitamin K operates as a cofactor in the carboxylation of specific glutamic acid proteins osteocalcin and matrix GLA protein and without sufficient Vitamin K these proteins never undergo the complete chemical process and calcium is deposited into soft tissues (such as blood vessel walls) instead of bone tissue, where it is most needed by the body.
