Having healthy bones throughout your life can help prevent diseases such as Osteoporosis.
To prevent bone loss as we age, its important to eat a healthy diet consisting of Calcium Rich foods such as Spinach, kale, Dairy products and soy. As we age absorbing calcium gets harder and harder for us, which is why taking a Vitamin D supplement is Vital, especially if we already suffering from Bone density loss.
Of course not all Supplements are created equal, you can read my blog to find out more on the importance of supplementation.
Back to a Vitamin D supplement. The best one with the highest amount of absorption is from the Isotonix line : Isotonix Vitamin D with K2
Isotonix Vitamin D with K2 contains vitamin D3, the metabolically active form of vitamin D, along with vitamin K2, a form of vitamin K which supports vascular health and calcium utilization. Here’s a chart that compares Istonix Vitamin D with K2 to the “other” brands:
As you can see from the chart above, most of the Vitamin D brands have 4000-5000 IU’s . So why is Isotonix D3 with K2 better? Well if you go on the list, you will see that the Isotonix version is the only supplement with Vitamin K2 as well as the only one being Isotonic.
(Isotonic= Is the reference of being Same pressure as your Bodily Fluids. Iso= same and tonic meaning “same pressure” . )
This Isotonic formula is what allows for 98% absorption, and with a Vitamin D3 supplement, absorption is key. This will also help your calcium be absorbed better,decreasing your risk of bone density loss and/or bone diseases such as Osteoporosis.
Why the Vitamin K? Well the Vitamin K is what supports the normal delivery of calcium to your bones.
Are you getting enough calcium and Vitamin D3?
